Thanks to all of you that have patiently hung with me. Welcome back to those that have stumbled back in despite not really having missed my wit & whimsy. A hearty HELLO!!!! to those that are venturing over to my little corner of the Internet for the first time.
Today I present an outfit post... for the first time since February 14th!!!! I know.
If you read my blog at all (or if you are new, I suspect the name alone tells you all you need to know?)... you know that I truly LOVE wearing leather skirts. When assembling today's ensemble I decided to start there.
This gorgeous skirt is the one that mom gave to me for Christmas... directly from her closet. I treasure it.
The color is wonderful. Best of all, I think that I will be able to wear this baby year round. Who am I kidding... of course, I will. I wear my black one on hot August days, why wouldn't I wear this one?
Next up, a great blouse. Today I went with dainty... feminine. Let's take a little edge off the leather since I will be attending a program at my nephew's school tonight. You can read a little more about that here if you missed the recent changes in my life.
I just LOVE this blouse. Delicate. Feminine. Sexy & conservative. Perfect.
I think the subdued polka dots make it unique.
So the question... how well does it work with the centerpiece of the ensemble?
I think quite well. How about you?
Next... shoes... what to do... what to do?
To warm for my beloved boots so I went with these.
The color isn't perfect for 'matchy - matchy' (I am a HUGE fan of 'matchy - matchy' right now) but they are so cute and perfect for strolling around the office and downtown on a warm day.
Do you like them?
So it all came together like so...
I have to say... this IS one of my favorite ensembles in some time. I love the skirt. I love the blouse. The shoes are beloved members of my wardrobe since college, maybe high school? Why haven't I put all this together already?
I have a business trip coming up in a few days. Perhaps I will recreate this ensemble for a new audience? Sometimes when I have an opportunity to travel I will wear the exact same outfit that I wore just a day or two prior because I liked it so much the first time. I figure, why not, this group of people didn't just see me in it two days ago. Does anyone else do that?
Hope You're Week Has Been Great Already... HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY!!!
