    This looks good. I think this is one of the best outfits in the pictures you have posted. I think simple solid colors and light stuff looks good on you. Also in 2006 posting you had maybe a perm that was a good combination. Lighter colors seem to bring out your face or allow more attention to it.

    The blue is so good on you. I like the Lipcolor #11 with the blue.

    I love your hair here, and that is my favorite color. I actually went out of the house with second day hair today – and it was fine. I thought of you 🙂

    Simple but classic! I love that the unexpected colors give the outfit a fresh feel! Another winner, Allie!

    There doesn’t seem to be a constant with them. I have a merino from last year that I adore and another I had to return. And I have a BR silk sweater that I bought 3 years ago and still wear… This one is thinner than say J. Crew, but it seems to be well formed and I hope it holds up. It does run large – this is an L and it seems comfortably roomy.

    Very pretty outfit. I am always on the lookout for new color combinations, I’m really liking the teal and tan. Ann Taylor is my favorite place for slacks. How do the merino sweaters from BR hold up over time? I have had a few bad experiences with BR silk/wool and silk/blend sweaters. So I have been reluctant in ordering any of their sweaters this season. Thanks
