What I Wore {post 39}

Hello and Happy Wednesday!  It's been a little while since I did some What I Wore posts, but that ends today!  These really run the gamut from a girls' night out to something really casual. 

* Black Strapless Pants Set *

I wore this to a bachelorette party recently.  This outfit is from Victoria's Secret from 1999/2000.  I saw it on a guest at my friend Heather's wedding (though she wore it in blue).  Another bridesmaid said she had the same outfit but in black.  I knew black would be a wise choice, so as soon as I got home, I took out the catalogue (!!) and placed my order.  This was back when online shopping wasn't quite as easy as it is now.  Anyway ... this outfit is perfect for a bachelorette party.  I wore my fun long necklace and large earrings and my Burberry stilettos (purchased on sale years and years ago).   I went with a smokey eye and light lip for makeup and used a flat iron on my hair.  I took a close up of the makeup (and earrings) and also took a side shot of the outfit so you can see that the top is sort of like a tunic (you can't really tell from the front picture).  

* Orange Cardigan & Navy Pants *

I have to wear my flats most of the week these days.  I really do try to limit my heel use to only twice a week, which pains my heart because I love love love my heels.  But I notice a huge difference in how my knees feel if I avoid heels (hint: they don't hurt).  So I often base an outfit around the fact that I have to wear flats.  This was one of those days.  I wore my ankle length navy pants with an orange cardigan and a navy shell.  I wore my persimmon colored bubble necklace from the j.crew factory with it.  

* Short Sleeve Wrap Dress *

This was a new buy!  I found it at the Ann Taylor outlet when I was there with Heather around Presidents' Day Weekend.  It was a new arrival but on sale for 50% off.  I think it was around $45.  I really liked the pattern and fit and thought the belt at the waist was super cute.  The neckline is a little gapey so I pinned it, but I'm going to take to a tailor to have them fix that for me permanently.  

I've heard more than a handful of people warn that when we have a Winter like the one we just had, that we probably won't have much of a Spring to speak of, but instead will have cold to hot overnight.  Dislike.  And sad face.  Here's hoping they are all wrong.  I really love Spring.  

See you swoon,
