An Outfit Post... YES... An Outfit Post!!!

Guys,

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?

Hee Hee

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!!!
