Casual Friday - Shopping Clothes

Black and white blouse (consignment), pale grey pants (The Gap), black jacket (Simply Manakin), black kitten heels (Kenneth Cole Reaction), red-orange wood rose earrings, red bead bracelet, blue bag.
Elaine and I planned a shopping trip last night after work, so I had to factor that in to what I wore yesterday. Must be able to walk in the shoes, must be able to slip the clothes on and off easily. Accessories must not get in the way when trying stuff on, and must not snag on the clothes.
I felt nice and comfy in this all day. I quite like these pants, even though the light colour tends to make me feel that my thighs look large.

We had a great shopping trip. Elaine got a grey wool cropped jacket, a cropped green jacket and a great cream and black dress (don't take it back!). Some great sales on. I got a new pair of brown trousers to replace my Plum ones, which are too big, a brown satin blouse, a brown/turquoise/orange patterned blouse, a cream ruffle-front blouse, a black shrug, and a blue satin turquoise dress.

I will be planning all my outfits this week to show off my new purchases. I'm trying to stock up on basics, getting ready for fall.

  1. I really enjoyed our shopping trip last night. I love my 2 mini jackets. I know that I'll get a lot of wear out of the Kelly green one. I have decided not to return that dress. Once I tried it on again at home I realized that I can certainly make it work. It goes really well with my Liz Claiborne flats and the fabric is great for travelling.
