Soccer Mom!

I walked down the stairs and my husband said “you look like your coworker.”

He has never met this coworker he was referencing. It is purely from my descriptions. My husband is a tee shirts and jeans kind of guy, but my fashion consultant. I keep my shoes in a rack in the kitchen pantry (the bedroom closet is just too full of out of season shoes! I keep the in-season shoes near the door!) and before I go out I do a shoe fashion show for him.

Dressing For Winter on 80 Degree Day

So it’s hot today… I don’t think it justifies bringing out the sandals. I say it’s all about layering.

My lavendar silk knit scoop neck shell from Ann Taylor Loft. My brown wool/cashmere cuffed trousers from Ann Taylor. Dark denim stretch blazer from Ann Talylor. Wood and amber beaded necklace. Brown croco pointy heels. Hair wavy with sideswept bangs. No earrings, thin gold bangle.

And my makeup is spectacular. I got this little quad of shadows from The Body Shop.

Gotta Wear the New Shoes!

The new blue merino v-neck from J. Crew. I have a piece of blown Murano glass I got in Italy. It’s a little smaller than a hockey puck, and much thinner. I hand it from an 18″ white gold chain. It’s almost the same color as my new suede wedges.

I have a light gray suiting fabic skirt from Banana Republic. Decided to wear that. No hose – hose is for interviews and little children.

Three Hits, Three Misses

So I received one package from Ann Taylor on yesterday, and three packages today – Nordstrom, Local Celebrity and J. Crew.

Local Celebrity was presents. A tee shirt for my sexy hubby, and a tee shirt for my friend who is turning 30 next weekend and says things like “golly,” “good gravy,” and “he’s a keeper.” Appropriate.

So Ann Taylor arrived. An angora cardigan in a leopard pattern. Not sure what drugs I was on when I ordered it.
