I bought this shirt several years ago – I have the same shirt in a bright turquoise. It's an intense color, a beautiful silk twill that can dress up or down. Last time I wore it, I went to a St. Patrick's Day party and paired it with a green eye thanks to a chunky emerald metallic eye pencil from Sephora. It's nice to fit into these shirts again – they are well made and the colors fantastic – especially on a rainy morning like today.
I picked these trousers up last week, the same time I got the tuxedo jacket. They were marked down to $49.99 with an additional 40% off – not too shabby for fully-lined, well-cut trousers of a seasonless fabric! I often shy away from navy, but this season I am loving it and find it less harsh than black and a great pairing with bright colors. They are Ann Taylor's Curve cut, size 12 Petite.
Fitting into this shirt really makes me want to go up in the attic, dig around and see what other items I still have that will fit this new body! Very exciting!
This weekend we had Emerson's nursery school open house – cross your fingers for us that we make it. They only take 12 children her age, so there's some major competition! The weekend as a whole was pretty great – had brunch with my girl friends, had some other friends over last night to watch the Oscars, and got a lot accomplished around the house! How was your weekend?
