ROG's Choice For Thursday, a casual day. ETA outfit photos

After today's hot colors I'm looking forward to the softer tones of this outfit. Again, all pieces will be something from my closet similar to the picks in Finds. I added photos. It is cold and windy and my hair has seen too much weather to tame. Should I tweek this or can it be repeated again?

WIWillW: ROG pick for Wednesday now with outfit photos

I will be using similar pieces to these finds from my closet. Pictures of the outfit tomorrow.
ETA: Pictures
The pumps are more pewter than silver. The tee will be pressed before going out. Over all what do you think?
Tweets? Are the shoes too outdated?
ETA: another silver shoe possibility. Any better?

WIW: ROG outfit for Tuesday ETA photos and confession

I'm posting this ROG outfit that I plan to wear tomorrow before it disappears. I don't own these pieces but have something similar.
Photos added.
1: couldn't resist hat as in find. This shows shoe option 1, leopard kitten heel pumps. The rest show round toe flats.
Confession: I'd sworn never to buy Crocs, but needed indoor shoes for Boulder and saw these at the Rack. They are perfect also for mornings outside in wet grass with my coffee. I am seriously considering the ones in the find but there are higher priorities for my budget right now.
I welcome your thoughts. Is the denim jacket working here? It is my largest one, so I could go more cropped or a different wash.

WIW: ROG pick and ROG variations on polkadot skirt

I may post this in sections as I keep getting logged out. For this week I want to try a week of ROG outfits. Most are wearable. For Sunday I wanted a skirt outfit and ROG often chooses my black and white Classiques Entiere silk skirt. I wore #1. The skirt is paired with a long sleeved white tee, long black vest, nude pumps, and greenish bag. 2 is with the shirt out. 3 is shirt semi-tucked. Which is best? Improvements?
4-5 are another ROG outfit featuring the same skirt and top, this time the topper is a denim jacket, pumps are black, and bag is bright red. 4 is tucked version and 5 is untucked.
Then we have a third ROG idea with this skirt. The top is an oversized linen EF blue tee. Black Elliot Lucus bag and black EF Allot flats. The topper called for a black moto. I show my fabric version then leather.
6 untucked tee, fabric moto, 7 untucked.
8-9. Leather moto
I welcome any advice you have on any of these stylings. Yes, I need to get to the gym after 2+ months away!
I will come back to add finds.

Fashion Era Challenge: inspired by 60's and 70's

Photos 1/2 are an attempt at 70's with old BR Urban Bootcut jeans, silky bow blouse with vest and chunky heeled sandals.
3/4 is supposed to look more late 60's with a peasant blouse (Lucky) and "love beads" and the same bootcut jeans, this time with strappy wedge sandals.
5-7 shows some wide 70's BR woolen trousers that I wore yesterday. The top is probably not right. I should have taken the photo of the sweater underneath tucked in. Shoes are peeptoes Pikolinos, about the only thing I had for the color and heel height with these trousers. I did wear this with my 70's long leather coat in #8. ( not the same outfit underneath)

Help! What does one wear to a 50th Class Reunion??

I am desperately needing your ideas and inspiration for deciding what to wear for my 50th high school reunion in late September in a town on the Great Plains where the weather can be anything at this time of year.
I feel so much pressure to try with two or three outfits to show who I am . I am not out to impress or look young or alluring, but would like to look modern. No dress code has been mentioned but most will be casual. There is a dinner but on the casual side...indoors with BBQ. For this I would like to wear a dress but nothing cocktail. Unless it's hot, I don't have a suitable dress though. It is Homecoming, so there is floatbuilding scheduled, also a parade and game.
I would greatly appreciate any thoughts you have. What would you wear? Or take to wear? (This is a car trip, so not limited to a carry-on.)

Inspired by Annagybe's vision of citron, grey and sky blue

Anna saw a color combo on So You Think You Can Dance that she thought someone should try.
http://youlookfab.com/welookfa.....or-someone
Here are a couple of attempts this morning.
1. Basic citron and grey worn around the house.
2. Different shoes and I used the aqua bag in #3 with this to run errands.
3. Showing various versions of what I could find for the blue...light wash denim jacket, aqua sandals, aqua bag.
4. Another option with Taylor aqua cropped cardi.
Anna, I'm not sure what shade of grey or if I have the right blue, but this was fun. I will try other versions as I find them. Does any of this work?
Shirt: Pleione dove silk
Belt: Calvin Klein Jeans distressed silver leather
Jeans: Target
Grey athletic flats: DKNY; grey wedges: MeToo; aqua sandals: no brand Italian leather (thrifted)
Bag: Consignment
