I may not be much on the forum for a little while. Between my aunt visiting, busy work and some health issues I am dealing now my time and energy are pretty limited. I will try to post my weekly WIW just to keep myself on my toes style-wise but may not be able to comment much on the other threads and for this I apologize in advance.
These are my work WIW from the last week. The common topic for the most of them is the wrong footwear: I guess my heart was not completely in the dressing this week :-(
pic 1 The day was VERY cold (-29C with windchill) and I was running late so I opted for an easy and WARM formula of straight leg jeans and oversized sweater. I wore my shearling lined UGG boots outside and changed into those booties at work. I am not sure the booties were a good choice here, especially with a black bag. Oh well!
Paige straight jeans
Gap chunky sweater
David Tate booties
Danier black satchel
pic 2 Another even COLDER day (-39C with the windchill) and another bundling up. I usually don't tuck my slouchy trousers into tall boots because they get wrinkled but these plaid trousers are wrinkle resistant so they are great for tucking. The booties were carried to work again but I was dressing in a hurry in the morning so it was only at work that I noticed that those putty suede booties do not work well with light grey of the trousers. It is not so obvious in the pictures but IRL the mismatch of the greys was very pronounced. I shuddered every time I looked at my feet! Well, another lesson learned! At least I liked the dove bag with those trousers and top!
Orange / grey cashmere sweater - Winners
Plaid trousers - Banana Republic
Putty (greenish taupe) suede booties - Sam Eldeman
Danier dove satchel
Silver belt from the discount store
pic 3 It warmed up a bit so I was brave enough for a dress. Paired my cobalt moto with polka dot sheath dress and flat boots: hopefully de-bombshelled it enough without getting into frumpy territory. For once footwear choice felt right here.
Dress - Jones New York
Moto jacket - Gap
Blondo tall boots
Danier silver tote
pic 4 I would be happy about this outfit if I liked my black booties better. They are the only black booties I have (their 4th season now) and I like them less and less every time I wear them. I guess the shootie height combined with chunky heel and tough straps just are not me anymore. I wonder if it is time to say good bye even though they are still in a good shape and I don;'t have other black booties.
Only Mine polka dot sweater - NAS
Cobalt Martin trousers - Banana Republic
Cream snake belt
Danier black satchel
Clarks black booties
I did not even take a picture on day 5 as I was sick half the night and just threw on a t-neck, jeans and booties before leaving for work. Was not even up to applying makeup that day! I felt so bad that I also decided to skip the company party that evening so I did not get a chance to wear the outfit I asked your advice about here :-(
So this was the last week and I hope this week will turn up better....at least I am much more careful about my footwear choices this week :-)
Thank you for looking and as usual all comments and suggestions are very much appreciated.
