WIW: for YLF meetup

Apologies in advance: there are no photos of the fabulous YLF group here, just photos of what I wore, taken at home.

As any of you who have been to a YLF meetup know, anticipation and figuring out what to wear is part of the fun. You want to wear something that you love and that other fashionable, stylish friends will appreciate. You want to be comfortable for the possibility of trying on clothes, really quickly, as there is a lot of shopping territory to be covered. And you want your feet to be happy covering all of that territory.

Here's what I came up with today, and it seemed a pretty good pick. Shoes could have been easier on-off for try-ons, but otherwise, it worked well.

The outfit: Red, black, and cream print flounce-hem tunic with open back (Free People, new from NAS); cream skinny jeans (Mother, the Looker high rise, in Whipping the Cream--just love these names!); black denim cropped moto jacket (Free People); black and white snake print sneakers (Mephisto, Yael); gray backpack (Rebecca Minkoff, Julian).

What a fun day with YLF sisters!

Thanks for looking! Thoughts and suggestions are welcome.

WIW: July 4

Well, it's not exactly a patriotic pairing, I'll admit. But here's what I ended up with, given a cooler day than I expected. I thought I'd wear this reddish dress with a blue denim jacket, but chose my olive leather moto instead, for warmth.

I do have on new blue specs; they are bright navy across the top and matte silver everywhere else.

Photo 1--the July 4 outfit (worn out to dinner):
Red-green cross-dyed voile dress (Judy Tampa); olive leather moto jacket (AllSaints); pewter cutout peep-toe booties (Paul Green); sage tumbled glass necklace and bracelet; silver bag with chain trim and strap (Michael Kors).

Also included (photo 2)--is an outfit from the day before yesterday (also worn out to dinner):
Blue jacquard dress (made by me); blue denim jacket (AG, Robyn) (not pictured); nude pumps (AGL) and clutch (J.Crew); gold layered necklaces with silver ring (Madewell).

Thanks for looking! I appreciate your comments and thoughts.
