Monday was the start of a busy week. Do you have weeks where you struggle to keep up? I'm sensing this may be one of them for me :)
Anyway, I was invited to attend the media launch breakfast for the Salvation Army Red Shield Appeal yesterday morning before work. It was a wonderful function for an organisation that does so much good work in our community. I was then going on to work where our Manager from Head Office is spending the next few days with us ... I forgot to smile in my pics and I think that may be why lol.
So I reached for a FFBO. Separates to make up a suit and some red to lift the black. I recognised a bit of a wardrobe hole recently for 'office pants' so these are new to my closet.
My boss (a woman) complimented my outfit, in fact she told me I always look lovely when she sees me... :)
Thanks for looking and I hope you are all having the best day.
BTW... These pics were taken on my new camera. Are they clearer, better? I usually take them on my phone. These are my fist pics on the camera, I have heaps to learn.
We are now well and truly experiencing Autumn weather and it is lovely and cool here today.
I have been wanting to wear this combination for ages and today's the day. I have been looking for some new oversized asymetrical tops because my fave black one is looking quite tired, and I found this one and the weekend. I am considering popping back to the store at lunchtime today to buy a duplicate in the black.
While this pairing is probably pretty typical of my style, I was inspired when I saw Beverly's outfit here http://http//www.beverlylikehi.....art-2.html
Outfit comprises; new black asymetric top, b44-esque striped skirt, opaque tights, black booties.
I have been steering clear of opaque tights over the past 12 months but I am hoping that the beige in the skirt bookends enough ith my hair to 'lighten' the look a little.
It was hard getting a good photo this morning, my face just wouldn't wake up :) lol
Thanks for looking and your comments, and suggestions for improvement are eagerly welcomed.
I think it's the change over of the seasons but I feel like I don't know how to dress myself at the moment :) One day it's warm, next day a bit cooler if only we could have some consistency, perhaps I would get my mojo back.
Wore this on Sunday. Added the sunnies for a bit of fun, but really should have thought more about shapewear as my 'spare tyre' seems to have broken loose :)
Please don't chastise me, but I really am enjoying wearing black at the moment. And it was cool enough to layer (yay). Black and layering, two of my favourite fashion things.
I know the necklace is a bit over the top, but I just love it. I'm thinking of wearing it over a long sleeve tee with jeans next.
BTW, I am really enjoying carrying a clutch. So much so that a clutch has become my weekend go to bag. It is really quite impractical as I like to carry 'everything' with me and DH gets frustrated that there is no room for his keys or wallet when we are out together... by I have tried to explain to him that it is a matter of priorities he he
Your suggestions, etc always very appreciated.
