It is Thursday and that means link up day with Kellyann and Jill. Sometimes I feel really weird and awkward doing these, but I know that this type of post helps breathe new life into my closet. I see a color combo or an idea and think that I can try it, too. I especially feel weird with my IRL friends who read the blog. Sorry, guys!
I wore this last week to the charcuterie place Cultured and got a comment from an employee. I told him he could use me in their social media and he chuckled. I think that was his polite way of saying, “thanks but no thanks, you crazy middle aged woman”.
The sweater is last year’s Loft (look on Thredup or Ebay if you also love it!), the pants are this year from Chico’s, and the heels are this year from Hush Puppies.
Then, I saw Kellyann pair hers with a black silk blouse and now I can’t wait to try this combo. Doesn’t this look so chic? Or, so “drippy” depending on your age?
Speaking of drippy, I have to tell you a quick story. Monday a fabulously dressed 6’5 man was walking through my hallway and told me he was a substitute security administrator. He was dressed in navy pants, a cream turtleneck sweater, brown loafers, and a long camel coat. Someone mentioned him in every single class. The girls were saying they were going to get in trouble so he could deal with them. It was really hilarious. I saw videos and photos of him taken by my students. They all commented on how nice he was dressed.
Last week I wore this easy outfit one day. I have this old feminine flannel from Old Navy. I wore dark jeans and my gold Tieks. I do have to say that the Tieks were very comfortable.
After school, I changed into this (don’t worry – I do not wear this to school).
For a quick breakfast date over the weekend I wore all black – black leggings, black top, and black booties and threw this black and red poncho on top.
I learned this photo trick and this is what I wore to Tom’s holiday party. The outfit consisted of the same faux leather Chico’s pants in black, old consignment black pumps, new this year Loft sequin, and a wrap that I borrowed from Erica. I need to find an elegant black wrap of my own.
The color of the night was green – dark green velvet, green velvet, bright green, and…
a green jumpsuit.
I had thought about green, too, but didn’t find anything.
For school this week, I wore a cream blouse with greenery on it with green Matilda Janes. See, I did wear some green!
And, I tried out my new black tights (very comfortable and I made sure not to go too small. There is nothing more uncomfortable than too tight tights. He, he), an old black skirt, and a new Costco white sweater. Yup, Costco got me for only $11. When you buy your clothing along with your meat, you know there is a problem.
And, that is about it for what I’ve worn lately. I have an idea bubbling in my head for 2023, but I am scared to put it out in the universe and scared to fail at it. I am also scared that I will regret it. What do you think about me doing a 23 in 2023 and only buying/adding 23 items to my wardrobe? Yeah, see…it might be too radical for me. Anyway, you will be the first to know if I decide to do it.
