I spent the morning in a coffee-induced artificially cheery state - I am still riding that a bit, but expecting a crash at some point, probably at Book Club, which is in an hour. I'm walking over - hopefully that will wake me up.
A new item was called for today!here just a few weeks ago. It's by Mexx and was $14.98. It's machine wash/tumble dry, which is gold in my book! It's a stretchy polyester with a side hidden zipper. I like the cut quite a bit.
Rusty-Orange Shirt (Mexx): Outfit #1
Instead of going for a classic autumn palette, I played with burgundy and black/white. The skirt is my lovely wool houndstooth pencil that I wore three times in my all-neutral month in November 2012 (recap here).
The shoes are my wonderful Fluevogs, last worn here with my bright red dress that was well-Liked. I changed to my burgundy boots (Matchy! Yay!) for walking to Book Club. I think I might like them better than the Fluevogs with this outfit. I last wore them for Pink Shirt Day in February.
The necklace is my octopus Mah-jong tile.
Our book up for discussion is "Stuart: A Life Backwards" by Alexander Masters - I'm not quite finished, but I really liked it.
