My mom tells me that when I was a little girl I would regularly ask her about her clothes. "Whatcha wearin' on, Mom?", I would say. So goes the family lore.
Well, I have always loved clothes and putting outfits together that are a little out of the box. Let me show you what I'm wearing today. It's a bit fancier than what I normally wear on any given Wednesday, but it was fun to put together.
I went to a luncheon today, so I thought I had better wear a skirt. I almost went for cowboy boots, but at the last minute chose these go-to, high heel boots. They make me feel powerful! Maybe it's because I'm not that tall...
purple skirt - Target clearance
jacket - swap from a friend!
grey/white striped t-shirt - Target
brown boots - Nordstrom (years ago!)
yellow lacquer bracelet - second hand store
amber earrings - gift from my dad
Surprisingly, the purple skirt has proven to be such a versatile piece! At first I picked it up because it was on clearance and so inexpensive. But I've found myself wearing it so often, with a variety of tops. It can be dressy (it is lace, after all) or casual (pair it with a t-shirt and flats or even flip-flops!). I LOVE color, so the purple with yellow pops of color really appeals to me.
What about you? Do you love color or find yourself gravitating to the neutrals?
