Casual Friday - Green and Brown

I'm feeling tired today - I think I am starting to get the cold that everyone in my office has. I was going to wear a denim skirt today instead of jeans, but it was still pouring out and I didn't want cold legs. It was bad enough that I forgot my purse after I'd walked to the bus stop (Friday is No Exercise Day), had to go home and get it, then missed the bus! Arg!

And just look at that mop of hair.

Today's outfit feels like a flashback to the 70s a bit again. This is a new blouse (clearance rack at the Bay for $16.99) and jacket (I do love the velvet - this was on sale for $39.99).
I love the pattern of the blouse. There was the same blouse but in a mustard yellow and grey mix instead of the green and brown mix, but only a medium left - it was way too big.
I re-discovered these green boots - I totally forgot about them! They are from my Fat Era - I found them in a clearance bin at the Bay about 4 years ago for $9.99. Doesn't everyone need green faux croc boots?? Ha!
The other flashback thing is the necklace. It's a wooden bead necklace that I got when I worked in a junior clothing store back in the 90s...probably around '92? '93? I wore it with everything for about 3 years straight. It makes me think of grunge...Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden.
Have a good weekend!
Blazer (RW & Co.), blouse (Point Zero - Nicole Benisti), jeans (Esprit), boots (Madeline), belt (Plum), necklace (LA Express), brass earrings.

  1. I love the boots - what a find. Your legs look as if they go on forever. The dark brown really makes that lovely blouse stand out.
