Before I go on... Two things...
First... God's Blessings to all that are so harshly impacted by Hurricane Sally. My heart goes out to you all.
Second... I will begin working on your questions from my previous post immediately. Hopefully I will have the answers posted in a day or two?
I took today off.
No particular reason.
I just needed a day.
Do you ever feel that way?
I will not be laying around the house but I am not using my day for errands either.
Today is a fun and relaxing day just for me.
I was up early, met a an old college friend for breakfast. I have a "lunch date" in just a few minutes. Planning some shopping after lunch and then dinner with my friend Cindy.
Rob has given her the night off.
Will be a wonderful day ahead.
My beloved caramel leather skirt...
This lovely beige blouse...
and the best pair of shoes I have ever owned!
A little cheetah and leather for just a little "edge."
If you have been reading my blog for awhile you have certainly seen this skirt. I really do wear it often.
You may recall from this post that it was a gift from Mom last Christmas?
Mom rocks! She still always looks fabulous. You will rarely "catch" her away from home without her heels and a skirt. It is just how we roll. That did not even sound right.
The skirt is made by Danier. It is softer than I could ever explain.
You have heard of "buttery soft leather"... I am sure that this skirt is the reason that term was first written.
I chose this wonderful blouse just to provide a little "feminine softness" to counter the "edge" of wearing any leather skirt, even one that is not black or red.
Almost wore the red one today. Almost.
This lovely blouse has been in rotation for many years. I wear it all year long. The long sleeves make it appropriate for cooler months but the light material and color make it so comfortable, even on the hottest days.
Besides, I do not mind telling you that I feel quite "girlie" when I wear it.
Nevermind the wonderful color and cut... look at the cuffs and those cute little buttons.
Despite my obsession with leather I really am quite the "girlie" type. Honest.
I really think these two garmets were "born" to be paired together.
The different textures.
The color pallet.
The cut of each.
They really are quite complimentary... at least I think so.
What do you think?
Throw in my current favorite footwear...
Ann Taylor has simply designed a fabulous pair of heels. Fabulous!
The ladies in the office would probably tell you that I wear them too much? Perhaps you think the same?
They truly are wonderful shoes. Incredible look. Comfortable. Trendy... yet, classic. Perfect!
It appears that they are still available here if you want a pair of your very own.
I am so happy that I made the purchase... so happy!
So here is the whole ensemble...
What do you think?
Oops... look at the time... going to be late for lunch... gotta go!
HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY!!!
