I wore this outfit s couple of times last week inspired by Angie's post but did not get a photo of the outfit. I wore sheer black stockings with it but the boots hid them. The skirt hits my lower knee. Suggestions for improvement or comments welcomed.
I really don't intend this to look like a costume, but wanted to play with Angie's Friday ensemble today. The pieces are mostly in my Finds below except that the tee under the orange blazer is an orange and light orange stripe. I could easily sub in leopard flats or shirt. Too much?
I know that this is not the look Angie was blogging about. The shirt is too narrow and heavy, the boots are too short and leave a gap. But I would like your opinion...which boots look best, the brown or black? The color of the leather skirt is "burgundy stem", rather dark, more chocolate than wine. Since I am shorter than most people, few would see that there is a gap between hem and boot from looking down. The last photo is of new Munroe flats in wine and dark reddish brown leathers. Better? The black Aquatalia boots are the tallest. The brown ones are old ECCOs. The last photo is s close up of the color of the skirt
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.
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
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.
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
I have another couple of ideas for this ensemble that I will try to photograph later.
1/2: olive utility pants with cream ruffled top and snake bag
3: floral top with grey quilted bag
4/5: silk print top with white bag
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.
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.
