Nov 11th, Love/ Hate

Well, this is a toss up. My husband HATED this outfit, but I actually like it.

I was going to wear it the other day, but my husband vetoed it. He doesn’t do it often, so I listened.

But then I saw Everybody Everywhere this month is featuring colored tights and I decided- what the heck. I’ll see what you all think.

As you might know, I am a big fan of this skirt, but usually I wear it with neutrals- so this purple sweater is a bit of a stretch for me.

Adding to the stretch are the colored tights- this is not normally a look I wear, but it does help transition the skirt into the fall, and they match the sweater so well!

To keep the colors consistent, I am wearing my leopard heels (again) and a gold necklace. I realize now I should add a belt, but am not sure which one?! Would my leopard belt be too much?!

I need your help- please comment with your thoughts- if you guys hate this look, be honest. You won’t hurt my feelings.

If you love it- let me know so I can tell my husband he was wrong!

Either way, thanks for commenting- and just to be totally honest, since today my kids don’t have school, I’ll probably spend the entire day at home in my jammies- (sounds heavenly).

Are the tights too much? My hubby thinks so...

Oct. 18th, My Perfect Dress

I love the way this dress hangs- it just has such a casual and comfy feel to it!

This works- but it's so expected!

I read somewhere that when you are shopping and looking for the perfect dress- you will know it as soon as you try it on. This isn’t always true- but for this dress it was!

There is something I just really love about it! It fits well, I love the stripes and it is super comfy- yet there is something more…

I think part of it is the long sleeves! I’ve mentioned before how I am always cold- so long sleeves is a great way to keep my arms warm!

I also love the way this dress has elastic around the waistline- giving the top this lovely drapey look- and then giving the bottom half a more slender look.

To make this look a little more stylish-and not too predictable- I added a braided brown leather belt, some grey colored tights (I’m liking these colored tights more than I thought), and brown boots. To compliment the entire outfit- I added a necklace (this makes a V and draws the eye down- competing with the whole horizontal thing). As an added bonus- I just happened to have a purse that matches my boots- so thought you’d like seeing that as well.

This dress is ideal to me because it can be worn to work, to a PTSA meeting (as in today!) to run errands in, or even for the weekend- throw a cute denim jacket and scarf over it!

I’m telling ya, you’ll be seeing this new friend again!

I like the brown and black together- it's a great color combo
