Hectic Thursday - Neutrals

In keeping with my "determined to be positive" attitude, I dressed yesterday for how I wanted to feel. Forcing my mood from the outside in, I guess you could say.

Actually, I just really wanted to wear this belt that I got a couple of weeks ago, and I haven't worn this skirt for a while (only once, here). Hee.
Distinctly less "lumberjack" this time. I also went for lunch with Mom and wanted to look nice.

I liked how the high-waisted skirt looked with this (worn once here):
Wonder Woman! Wearing my power cuff again, too.

The weather has turned here - it's in the low 70s/low teens now. Brr...this meant a jacket was required:
My cheapy boyfriend jacket that I got in a thrift store months ago.

The stuff:
One of the most comfy pairs of kitten heels I own. I've worn them so much the brand has worn off. I've had them for about 4-5 years.

I got the belt at the Gap (I never shop there, but Ruth and I went to the Mall and she wanted to go in). It was regular $42, marked down to $19.99, then marked down to $12.99, then had an extra 30% off. Score! For leather, too.

Black, gold, silver sparkliness!
Oops, missed putting my ring in the picture!

Blouse (Vintage DC Missy, consignment), skirt (Bedo, thrifted), shoes (don't remember), belt (Gap), cuff (Aldo Accessories), earrings (The Cobbler), ring (Club Monaco).

  1. I love the all-neutral outfit! It had been chillier here too, but today it's back up in the 80s.

  4. This is such a pretty skirt.
    The fit and color are perfect. I need to get a tan skirt.
    My last one was quite old and beat up.

  5. Jealous of the cooler weather. It was too hot to cook in the oven today.

    I love the high waisted skirt. And the kitten heels *swoon* They elongate your legs just perfectly.

  6. Thanks, LHdeM! Summer's been too short!

    Kelly, thank you!

    ShyGirl, thanks!

    Thanks, Lorena. I don't usually go for a tan, but this one has such great details.

    Megan, you can have it - I want warm weather! Thanks so much!

  7. One of my favorites on you!

    I see you want to trade Megan for some warm weather, how about some hot weather? We had a cold front come through today - now it's only 98.
