This ensemble is a classic ending to this week. I didn't post a ton of outfits since I worked early shifts and was sick, but I pretty much wore a black skirt every day. I didn't realize this until I was taking my OOTD picture for Instagram; each day was a bit funky of an ensemble and today's was pretty classic hence the title of the post!
This morning was a bit crazy; I won't go into details out of respect for my kid, but I ended up late for work, you can see my hair curled up in places from running and perspiration, Emerson felt frustration and then extreme pride, and she will be rewarded for her milestone with a much-desired princess dress. I think fellow parents may realize what momentous occasion took place and us parents are hella relieved!
Foxcroft found out about my need for a classic white shirt and sent me this one. It's pretty darn awesome - wrinkle-free, quite opaque, classic styling. I forgot that Foxcroft is sized nicely for busty gals and ordered a 14 instead of 12 so it's a bit roomy, but all the better to knot it at the waist! If you do order from Foxcroft, do know that they size for women's curves - no need to go up a size or two to prevent gaping at the bustline.
And how pretty is this necklace from Lydell NYC? It was hard to pry it away from Emerson, she loved all the "precious jewels" in it. I love that the necklace has a lot of length - many statement necklaces are only 16-18" in length; this necklace is 18" or 19" in length but then has a few inches of extra chain if you want to wear it longer. Great for versatility and for women like me with thick necks; expect to see this necklace on me a lot in the next couple of months!
