Navy and grey

So, yeah. No outfit posts from me the past few days. Sorry... I had a very frantic/frazzled few days and counted myself lucky that I even managed to clothe myself at all, much less well. Honestly, people. There was a sweatshirt worn all day on Wednesday. It wasn't pretty.
But there is a good reason, one that I won't go into now. The same reason I won't be posting much next week, but I will be taking photos! I promise. You'll get a bulk download of my fashion choices all at once.
As for today: I'm clothed. I look okay. For some reason I never wear navy and grey together... I should do it more often. I kind of like it. And it's pretty close to my high-school colors as well. I adore this cardigan wrapped like this but I need to come up with some sort of fastening device, otherwise I have to keep fixing it every few minutes. Oh, the hardship, I know.

Flyaway cardigan: Max Studio
Navy v-neck t-shirt: Kohl's
Jeans: Calvin Klein lean bootcut
Sequined flats: Keds
Grey pendant: Baked Beads

Where: Drycleaners, bank, music class, grocery store, work at home, much cleaning and organizing.

Happy Springtime Dairy Cows and Calves!

For those of you in the know, my title is a quote from Good Night, Vermont! which is a board book for children. It is written along the same lines as Good Night, Moon but much less creepy. And yes, I did just say that a very popular children's book is creepy.

I felt that to offset my fall color palate yesterday, I would attempt to embrace spring with my new shirt from, you guessed it, Target. The weather is decent but not as warm as I would have like it. These jeans, like most of my pants, are too long so I rolled them up to make them more springlike to go with my "It's got to get warm some goddamn day, RIGHT?!" theme.

The Outfit:
Tunic: Merona
Camisole: Banana Republic
Jeans (remixed): it! diva jeans
Belt (remixed): CJ Laing
Shoes (remixed): Merona

Where: Bank, another bank, and yet another bank (why does my bank have only one ATM that allows you to make deposits and that lone ATM is not helpful by BEING OUT OF ORDER?!), work, Lowes (again, they love me there), home

Wait, Shouldn't this be an autumn outfit?

Despite the fact that it is May, flowers are blooming, leaves are leafing, and the sun is out, it's damn cold and this honey badger don't like it! So instead of pretending it's spring and wearing bright colors and whatnot, I went with a palate of brown with some tan. There are some pinks and greens in the jacket and I did wear but Superhero necklace but generally, I am down with brown. That sounds weird.

The Outfit:
Jacket: J. Crew
Dress (remixed): Merona (I think)
Belt (remixed): Banana Republic (maybe)
Tights: Teeeejjjjj to the MAXX
Boots: White Mountain
Necklace: Superhero

Where: Work, overpriced lunch, Target, and for kicks, Walmarzzz

OMG! She Posted!

Unfortunately, work gets in the way of posting. The last two days were quite stressful and intense but in the end: I winz! Yesterday I had a nice Ann Taylor charcoal grey suit for a court appearance. I prefer suits with dresses to skirt suits. I think that they look neater and it means I don't have to wear a blouse. Did I mention I generally do not like the way button down blouses feel? I cannot explain why. It's like I have a reaction to them. That makes a lot of sense.

Today I had a more informal hearing so I dressed a little more casual. I couldn't put myself through wearing a suit two days in a row. Oh, the inhumanity of it all! When I tried to write of it all, I wrote "alf" instead. Was that a subconscious signal? Hmmmm... What could it mean? Discuss amongst yourselves.

Back to the outfit. It is actually cold enough today to wear this heavier wool jacket. Sad, I know. Mother Nature can kiss my arse. Still, I like the jacket. I love the color. And it is very comfortable. I realize that this shirt does not photograph well from afar so here is a close up of the shirt and the jacket. And apparently my bosom. Bonus!

The Outfit
Tweed Jacket (remixed): J. Crew
Shirt (remixed): Banana Republic
Black Trousers: Merona
Shoes: Nine West

Where: Hearing, courthouse, Starbucks, work, Co-op, Kmart

Hippie II

Ugh, it's grey and pouring outside. Who can motivate to get dressed up when you have to out and running around in that weather? At least I have coral shoes to make me think of summer... and it's hard to tell from the photo but I love the cut of this tank. It's sort of a faux-wrap thing.

Tan cardigan: Casual Corner from a bajillion years ago (is that store even around anymore?)
Patterned tank: Kohl's
Jeans: Levi's Curve ID bootcut
Coral and tan sandals: Bass
Leather beaded necklace: Baked Beads

Where: Dog groomers, mall errands, greenhouse, out to lunch, work at home, back to groomers, pick up farmshare.

I have to apologize for subjecting you to a close-up of my feet. I keep stubbing my toes and breaking nails... and I'm in desperate need of a professional pedicure. But I wanted to show off the shoes, some of my favorites.

I'm having an "off" day so far. Yesterday went all wrong, and today I just can't get my head around everything and I'm so tired. I'm pretty sure this is called I-need-a-vacation-itis. Anyhow, this morning is just errands, etc., so I didn't make the effort to get dressed up. I have a meeting later today so hopefully I'll rally and look more presentable by then. I'm pleased with the color of this tank even though it can skew "maternity" since it's so loose and floaty. But I'm making a concerted effort to build more color into my wardrobe, and this accomplishes that goal!

White cardigan: Target
Raspberry knot tank: Jones New York
White cami: Costco
Jeans: Calvin Klein lean bootcut
Beaded flip-flops: Target
Starfish necklace: Target

Where: Bank, errands, work at home.
