WIW: wine on ice 3 ways

Wednesday I wore something close to teach and managed to snap some photos. The print jacket (1-3) was not warm enough so exchanged it for the EF wine cardigan. (4) I ended up wearing the wine ballet flats (7) that I bought last year to wear as slippers/house only shoes. The necklace (3) was a gift and is Native American inspired.
Today I am wearing the darker wine jeans, old EF thrifted cardigan (6),burgundy short boots (8) that reminded me of the Sweeties. The necklace (5) was made by my niece and the stone beads are beautiful, but heavy.
I did not like the fit of the jacket from seeing it in the photos so it will be cleaned and donated. Underlayer on top in both outfits is a silk EF shell...2 different ones. The first is more aqua, the second is more midtone blue than icy.

Possible DIY Project

Do you think it would work to reset buttons on this JCrew shirt so that it would stay at a diagonal. What do you think? I would probably wear it out but it could be tucked

Genie Lite

I don't own genie pants, but these joggers might substitute. I also do not wear sandals but used gold loafers. The top is semi-tucked, but jacket is cropped. How do you like this outfit?
( I do not think it qualifies as a " genie in the bottle" outfit.

Copying Mirjana ETA Finds

With Angie's post and Mirjana's recent outfit of pale pink and bright red as inspiration, I had to try. Mine is pink on top and red on the bottom, using Mirjana's example of silver accessories. I forgot to include a pale pink long cardigan topper as it is warm. I will try to add it in Finds

Summer Olive and White with Black

When I saw Angie's ensemble post last week I could hardly wait to try it. I usually wear these olive utility pants with black or tomato red. I added the black utility vest for a third piece and for some added warmth for early morning.
The pants are from Target last year. White linen top is an old EF piece. ( Find is similar). Shoes and bag are old favorites. Vest was thrifted.

Denim Skirt Ensemble X 3

After Angie's blog post on this I could hardly wait to see what I had to make this outfit. I learned that tops I thought were quite cropped when paired with pants were not cropped enough with a skirt. First up is a dark navy jean skirt, then a white skirt. The tops are all boxy and, I had thought, cropped. The striped one is cropped. The plaid and black ones, not as much as I thought. Are the proportions too far off? Comments and suggestions welcomed.
Should I release the hems of either or both of the skirts? Both are at least 3 years old.

Utility Dressed Up

Inspired by Angie's blog post today. I was going to wear the denim pencil skirt ensemble and then realized that I would be entertaining a 2-year old all day. With this outfit I can sit on the floor and hopefully still look pulled together. The first photo is more dressed up with kitten heeled pumps. Photo 2 is reality with gold loafers. Photo 3 is a closer look at gold jewelry... not as cluttered as it looks. What do you think?
Brown utility pants, old Michael Kors top, assorted old jewelry, Kate Spade gold tote.

Final WIW of 30x30: Out with a Bang or Fizzle?

July 9: (2-4). A Sunday outfit of 2 black dresses, one over the other. I tried to lighten 3 to show them but the black on black is difficult. 4 is the plain EF dress without the other dress as topper.

K/R: EF Casual Shoes

You helped me decide about a pair of EF pumps that I ended up returning. I come again for help. I found these at the Rack in my size this time. They are very very comfortable and good colors for my wardrobe, but are they too clunky for my body? I really like the thick sole and think they will be comfortable enough for lots of walking. I could see myself wearing these nearly all year as they have a stable non-slip bottom. I hope that the white on them will keep them from being too dark and heavy on me, but I want your honest opinion. These are not styled but shown with pants I had on shopping rolled up to shoe the shoes. What do you think?!
