It's hurt-yer-face cold outside. Here is that fashion post I've been promising. All of these outfits are from last week.
My original idea for this outfit was to use a blazer, but at the last minute I thought the brown blazer I have would look weird so I used a cardigan instead. I think it makes the ensemble look a little more "schoolgirl" than I intended. At work I had pumps instead of the boots. i think the boots make it look like I'm trying a little to hard. (Too young, too trendy- and late on the trend at that!) This skirt was one Husband picked out as part of a rash of online discount purchases. It's Old Navy and their sizes run large, I think it is meant to sit higher on your waist. It looks great if I am standing still but when i walked it poofed in an odd way. Any ideas on another way to wear the skirt?
This one I am pleased with. The sweater I got at the Benetton outlet store for $20 and I wish, wish, wish i had picked up more than one in different colors because i love it ever so. please disregard the messy room.
Pardon the blurry pic here. I've been wearing a lot more skirts and dresses so this was an attempt to bring pants back in on the scene. It's an ok look. I inevitably get comments when i wear the vest but I think I could get more creative. Suggestions welcome!
