What Do You Mean, It's 29 Degrees Out?

Unless I'm going to be outside, I don't really factor the weather into my wardrobe planning for work days.
Hence the sweater, lined pencil skirt, lined wool-blend jacket. Hey, at least I'm not wearing nylons!

I based my oufit around the fabulous shoes. Since I turned my ankle last night - did I mention I'm a klutz? - I wanted to wear low heels. The shoes are trimmed in a grassy green, with brown and black zebra, and the sparkly decoration.

The green is much more green than this - the top photo is more accurate. I photograph my accessories on top of a shelf about 3 feet closer to the den's window, and it's amazing how the light leaches the colour out of things. For example, the burgundy shoes I wore yesterday look bright red in the "stuff" shot (Alison, you called it - they ARE burgundy).

That's my new Fossil ring up there (complete with bandaid, because it's too big) - click to enlarge. I waited for that to get marked down for ages - it started out around $45, and I got it for around $5. It's a knuckle buster, for sure, but I love the brown metal and the dome shape of it. The earrings are vintage clip-ons, and the necklace is one of my Grandma J's vintage pieces from the 50s.

  1. those shoes are gorgeous and i do like them paired with the grassy green color.

  2. Is that a crown I see on those fabulous shoes???

  3. You look fantastic!THose shoes are really awesome.

  4. I love your ponyhair shoes. I have a pair that are similar and I find that I almost fall every time I wear them. I've finally determined that it's the heel height and shape. I walk like I am in flats b/c they are so low, but my feet slide out from under me on hard floors. Do you have similar issues?

  5. Hi Sheila! I love your shoes!!!

  6. Think I lost my comment--but said hi Sheila and love the shoes!

  7. Thanks, FashionAddict!

    Wendy, thanks.

    Eednic - thank you.

    Sal, yes, that is a crown.

    Nurmisur, thanks so much.

    Tina, I haven't found that with kitten heels, although I do find if the heel is not centred properly that you can lose your footing easily. I walk the same in flats as with heels: heel-toe. Maybe you need some grips stuck onto the soles?

    Thanks, Karen! Your comment disappears for my approval.
