Black & Tan

 

It’s been a crazy week, and I’m exhausted, it’s only Thursday?  I think you can tell from this picture how tired I am.  Oh well, not every picture or day can be our very best.  At least I felt good in this outfit – which is a sure way to brighten an otherwise dragging week!

I’m loving these pants I just got from Anne Taylor Loft.  They’re so retro and comfortable.  Dressy but don’t need dry cleaning.

The shirt I found at Marshalls a few years ago, I love the print and the unique color scheme – marigold, tan, and black with spots of peacock blue-green.  Sadly, the cut of it is so blousey that it makes me look like I’m slouching with no shoulders.  For this reason, even though it’s silk I’ve kicked it out of the VIP section of my closet and have relegated it to my work wardrobe.  This isn’t anything to be ashamed of, but it’s probably the shirts last stop before it hits Good Will in a few more years for someone else to slouch around in.

Sequins in the City

All my 30-30 clothes are in the hamper waiting to be washed.  And I will get around to that eventually.  It’s such a nice feeling to put them behind me for a bit.  I feel like my options are endless now!  It did really help to recalibrate my feeling of having nothing in my closet!

I took the day off to spend with my parents who were in town visiting.  A morning hike and a delicious breakfast and then wandering around the mall and dinner out on the town.  It was a very nice day.

My outfit transitioned from day to evening nicely with loose inspiration from Isabel Marant’s F/W ’10 show.  Sequin leggings aren’t really a viable option for most of us but I loved the cropped pants with pointy shoes.

You may recall that I also have this sequin shirt in navy, yes, I own two colors of the same shirt – hey they were on sale!)  You can’t really tell from the picture but they’re matte sequins which I liked.
