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,
