Start With The Shoes...

This is two days in a row that I have gotten a post up!  I actually considered naming this post just that.  

Hee Hee 

Do I get some kind of an award?  A "smiley face" on my paper?  A gold star?  Anything?  

Hee Hee

Anyway, when I work on my outfit for the next day (Yes, I actually plan the night before most of the time), I rarely start with the shoes.  My shoe of choice always ends up being the last thing I consider.  Today's outfit could not have come together any differently.  Today I "found" these babies in my closet and simply could not help myself.  I have not worn them in so long. 



I think the color is so perfect.  How could I not build today's outfit around these lovelies?

Believe it or not, as much as I love the entire purple "family", I really don't have that much in my closet.  Perhaps that will be my post-Christmas shopping plan?  Given my limited options I decided on a bit of a pin-striped theme.  Both pieces are from Harold's again today.  Sensing a theme?

Here you go...



I think it's a cute little blouse.  Maybe a little too casual?  What do you think?  I like it so I suppose that is what matters.  Here is the whole look together...


I feel like such a girl when I wear this skirt.  The tulip shape just makes me want to twirl.  I don't usually twirl but I want to someday.  Hee Hee

I wish that I would have taken closeup shots of this skirt.  It really is quite darling.  The shape alone is very feminine in my estimation but there is also a wonderful lace hem at the bottom for that added little touch.

Do you have a particular piece that you generally "build" your outfit around?

Have A Wonderful Day

  1. That is a nice skirt, does it have a slight ruffling in the ends? A very thin pin stripe?
