Ahhhh Friday once again. Yay yay yay. I love closing out the week with some pretty clothes. This is the time of year when I look at my sweaters and Winter clothes with disdain and contempt. I am ready for florals and light fabrics and feminine, ethereal Springy clothes. And new shoes. Always with the new shoes.
In the meantime, here are a handful of recent Winter outfits. :/
Black & White Skirt and Black V-Neck Sweater
Talk about wardrobe workhorses. I have had this black silk v-neck sweater from Banana Republic for ages ... probably going on about 10 years at this point. I love it and will cry big crocodile tears when it eventually wears out. I wore it with my black boots and black & white skirt ($11 TJ Maxx a few years ago).
Maroon Sweater, Black Pants, Turquoise Necklace
I am a huge fan of the dark red + baby blue or turquoise color combination. It all goes back to 1996 when I was in Rome and strolling the Via Conditti (which is the most fashionable street in Rome) and saw that color combo on a dress in the Versace window. It stopped me in my tracks - literally. I didn't dare go in the store, as I was 20 years old and likely wearing grubby American college coed clothing, but I remember being struck by how stunning that dress looked. Honestly, I think that was the moment in my life when I vowed to stop dressing like a grubby American college coed and start dressing (and looking) a little more fashionable. That is a really long way of explaining why I wear (and love!) this color combo as often as I do. Anyway ... the sweater is from the Ann Taylor outlet, the pants are from the Banana Republic outlet (and are hemmed so that I can wear flats with them), and the necklace is a fun carved rose necklace from Tarina Tarantino, circa 2002.
Orange Sweater & Boyfriend Jeans
Have an awesome weekend, ya'll!
