It has been cool, and yet I don't want to dress as if summer is nowhere in sight.
I tried for some lightness in these outfits while staying warm. I don't have that many light-colored clothes to begin with, let alone ones that are the right medium weight for this finicky weather.
How did I do?
1: worn to work yesterday: charcoal floral silk peasant blouse (made by me); blue boyfriend chinos (Eddie Bauer); black belt (men's dept., Nordstrom, years ago); gray French terry peplum jacket (several seasons ago, Nordstrom); metallic high top sneakers (Paul Green).
2-3: other variations on the outfit, with taupe linen cardigan (Nic & Zoe) and pewter belt (Fossil). Cardi wasn't warm enough.
4: worn to work today: black and silver knit dress (Comfy USA); black lace shrug (made by me); black sling-back Mary Janes (Think! Aida); black leather cuff with studs (Nordstrom, last year); silver dangle hoop earrings (Marjorie Baer).
Thanks for looking! Thoughts and suggestions welcome!
