I wrote last week about the small touches that give my mostly-neutral wardrobe new life. Well, here it is Friday again – and again I have worn black trousers, a black maxi skirt, and a navy striped skirt, with simple tops. Stop the Vogue presses!
I am far from bored though, because I look for ways to make my outfits just a little happier. (And that means happier to me, as others may still put me in the “boring” file. That is OK, I know a crazy tiger woman lives right under the black jersey surface ☺).
This week, I made myself happy with:
- Great vintage-style shoes, thrifted at Goodwill for under $6. The brand is Tara, which turns out to be a favorite of dancers, lucky me! I will enjoy wearing them with tights soon.
- A colorful floral scarf tied as a sarong over my knit maxi. I liked the look, but it’s best if you’re going to remain standing for a while. Getting up and down from my desk rather smooshed the look I was going for.
- Delicate drop bead earrings, made by a friend. I don’t wear earrings a lot because my hair covers them, but these are so feminine and pretty, they made me smile.
- My MAC Pro Longwear Lipcolour in Stuck On You. It’s incredible how long this stuff lasts on your lips! When I am getting ready for bed, it’s still there. Must get more colors.
We’ve switched to fortnightly Visible Mondays, and here’s your reminder that This Weekend We Are ON ☺. Visible Monday will go live Sunday evening at about 5PM Eastern Standard Time.
