I’m not even going to try and come up with a catchy intro to this week’s installment of “[Trying-to-Be] Fashionable Friday”. All I will say as a prelude is that this blog is dedicated to the item that I am the MOST excited about obtaining this past week. Let’s see if you can figure out what it is.
|Hair in need of desperate attention…wind doesn’t help.|
|Methinks I will be working on slimming the midsection this summer|
|Look, ma! No winter coat!|
I really can’t get enough of the summer-like weather…and I love the fact that I can put together outfits without worrying about whether I have enough layers to keep out the bitter cold. While I do worry about whether I will get too hot, I think it’s a more than fair trade-off (but let’s see if I feel that way come July and August).
This particular outfit is one I’m really proud of because it was put together from pieces I’ve had in my closet for some time (at least over a year). The only piece that is brand new is the Anne Klein watch (which I purchased with some Macy’s gift cards I received for my birthday).
You’ve actually seen the blouse before in this blog because I had posted a picture of it (and a couple other items) purchased during our excursion to the Birch Run Premium Outlets on InChul’s 29th birthday. It was a pretty daring purchase for me…I’ve always been partial to plain, monochromatic clothing items. This was the first time I had purposely chosen an article of clothing with multiple dynamic colors and pattern (that I didn’t already have in my closet). Over a year later, it still works.
As for the capris, they were purchased many years ago from Sisley at Lenox Square Mall in Buckhead. I had taken the advice of the saleslady and purchased a pair just a bit tighter than I would like (apparently would stretch out). Big mistake! It never really stretched out and I never felt comfortable wearing these capris. But now that I’ve reduced my size a bit, I can finally fit into them and actually feel good.
So sometimes your own closet can become your personal mini-boutique. Take a look today and see what outfits you can come up with. 😀
