Here are some outfits from this week. None are making me super happy. I'm in kind of a style funk this week. Not to be confused with a funky style. It's about time to get my hair trimmed, and that may be why I'm feeling less inspired lately.
Monday's work outfit (1-3): gray-blue linen asymmetrical faux-wrap skirt (made by me); chambray blue ribbed tank (Eddie Bauer); gray-blue 3/4-sleeved cardigan (J.Jill); metallic cap-toe ballet flats (AGL); taupe hobo bag (Aunts & Uncles). This skirt was my tryout of a pattern; I do like it enough to make it again, in a fabric that I like better. I like the linen; I'm just not crazy about the color, which I find hard to style. I'm wearing it here with an old J.Jill cardi.
Tuesday's outfit for day off and piano lesson (4-6): taupe tee (Caslon); rolled cutoff shorts (Lucky); khaki web belt (Eddie Bauer); fuchsia-navy-olive on cream falling vines cardigan (Nic & Zoe); cream multi-strap cork-soled sandals (Haflinger); leather wrap bracelet with silver and brass beads (Lucky); brown stone necklace (gift). This outfit felt comfortable but lackluster. I wore it out shopping and thought I might look a little too effortless (i.e., without the chic part--LOL).
Wednesday's outfit for morning off and breakfast out (7-8): gray chino shorts (Eddie Bauer); black and aqua wallpaper print tee (made by me); silvery belt with rhinestones and studs (Calvin Klein); denim jacket (AG, Robyn); hobo bag (Aunts & Uncles); black ankle strap sandals (Dansko). These sandals are ancient and not in style, but I keep them because I love them. They seem a little less out of style lately than in the last few years, so I dragged them out for part of a day.
Wednesday's outfit for teaching sewing in the afternoon (9-10): green swing tank top with contrast yoke (made by me); denim skirt with layered front (Tribal); gray platform sandals (DV by Dolce Vita).
Thursday's outfit for a day off (11-13): gray chino shorts (Eddie Bauer); gray, blue, and white block print tee (Nally & Millie); light gray long cardigan (Halogen); footwear indecision: cream multi-strap cork-soled sandals (Haflinger); cream platform sandals (Naot); taupe lace-up sandals (P. Monjo); metallic suede high-top sneakers (Paul Green); gray low-top leather sneakers (Josef Seibel, Caspian).
Anyone else in a style funk lately? Is it an end of season thing? Or does my hair theory make sense--in need of a hair trim, so I can't get enthused about dressing either? In any case, I'm not exactly worried. I managed to get clothes on myself and I'm pretty sure my style spark will return.
Thanks for looking! I welcome your thoughts and suggestions.
