I don’t have a lot of outfits for this week’s link up. I had a pretty rough week and things just didn’t work out as I had planned, including my outfits-of-the-day as styled by Alison and Cyndi.
Last week, the outfit prescribed for Wednesday was khaki pants, a jean jacket, a white button-down shirt, and leopard print shoes. I can’t seem to find the perfect white shirt, so I opted for a minty-green color.
Last Thursday, Alison and Cyndi recommended a neutral sweater, boots, and skinny jeans. In my book, orange is a neutral, and I opted to throw a vest over my somewhat clingy sweater.
Friday’s outfit was a solid blouse, boot cut jeans, leopard print shoes, and a long necklace. This blouse was too dark, but it worked out well because I spilled my coffee all down the front of it. I don’t think anyone noticed, but I smelled suspiciously like hazelnut. I would choose a brighter color blouse next time…too many dark colors for this outfit.
Saturday’s outfit was khaki pants, a chambray shirt, stud earrings, and leopard print shoes. This was my favorite outfit of the week, and I ended up never remembering to take a picture of it.
Sunday’s outfit was supposed to be a lovely black sheath dress and white button down shirt…I ended up wearing jeans, a big sweater, and a t-shirt. This outfit was much more comfortable for laying on the basement floor, and putting the pieces of my dryer back together.
Monday, I tried to get back on track. I wore a neutral sweater, trouser-fit jeans, patent leather Hunter boat shoes, and my scarf from the scarf swap. This lovely scarf was sent to me, and Monday was my first chance to wear it.
Tuesday, I ended up in my traditional work-from-home attire of leggings and a hoodie sweatshirt. I was in full-comfort mode. If I would have been playing along, Alison and Cyndi recommended a striped tee, jean jacket, khaki pants, leopard print shoes, and stud earrings.
Today’s outfit of the day was supposed to be black pants, a solid blouse, a sweater, and black boots. I recovered from my funk (partially because I had to go in the office) and wore a patterned blouse, sweater, black suiting pants, and a grey cardigan. I don’t have high-heeled boots…that might be pretty funny (and dangerous for me) if I did. I was feeling a little frumpy in today’s outfit. Maybe I will find better choices in my closet next time.
So this week didn’t go as I had planned, but maybe I will do better next week.
