The past few days I've felt pretty good in my outfits. I really enjoy wearing the three pairs of booties shown in these outfits. Good footwear goes such a long way to making me happy with what I'm wearing!
I've had trouble wearing the purple sweater in outfit 1, and I struck upon this solution of wearing it over a mesh-knit top. I haven't really enjoyed the mesh knit as a top layer over a tank or other body-con tee, but I did like wearing it this way, as an under-layer. Win-win, right?
I wish you could see the detail better on the black skirt in outfit 2. It's a pretty fun design, with ruching up the six seams that join the panels on the skirt.
1-3 (worn to work): dark brown ponte knit cargo pants (made by me); purple boxy zip-back sweater (Halogen) over ivory pin-dot mesh knit tee (made by me); brown metallic booties (Donald J. Pliner); taupe trench (Calvin Klein); black and brown snakeskin print cross-body bag (Aimee Kestenberg).
4-6 (worn to play in a piano concert): black corduroy ruched skirt (XCVI Wearables); black layering tee (Tees by Tina); red and black wool knit shawl front cardigan (made by me); black tights; blingy necklace (from BP at Nordstrom); black flat booties (Munro, Lexie); ombre plaid black, ivory, gray, and taupe coat (MICHAEL Michael Kors); cross-body bag as above.
7-10 (worn to work): black ruched knit pencil skirt (Vince Camuto); gray silk popover blouse (Vince); faux fur vest with tie front (made by me); black suede booties with gray turn-down cuff (Paul Green); long black coat (Gallery); purple hobo bag (Kate Spade). I've shown the booties with the cuffs turned down in photo 7, but the rest of the photos show the cuff turned up. Which do you like better with this outfit? (My DH liked the cuffs down, so I wore them that way.)
I'm always open to your suggestions! Thanks for looking and sharing whatever thoughts you have.
