Casual Friday - Silver and Gold

Revisiting my stalwart casual combo of stripey shirt and graphic tee, and mixing up my metals:
This t-shirt has both silver and gold all over it. Inigo is coming in for a rub.

I wore a jacket over it all day.

Heh, I look barely awake...well, it was 8am when I took that picture. Such an uncivilized hour.

The stuff:

The writing says "Glamour Campaign". Wore my studded leather cuff, my bigass gold hoops and the silver chain with a gold key, silver key and my celtic "S".

Silver and gold always make me start humming a tune from "Rudolph" as sung by this guy:That special started airing on TV 3 years before I was born, and I watched it every year. The Bumble (the Abominable Snowman) used to make me cry and hide my eyes, I'm told. He's still pretty scary.

Rar! I don't care if Bumbles bounce, I was quite happy to have him stay at the bottom of the ravine.

Tonight is Festivus! I'll post my party outfit tomorrow.

Jacket (RW & Co.), striped tee (Majestic, gift from Caro), t-shirt (BCBG Max Azria, consignment), jeans (Esprit), belt (gift from Ruth), boots (Cougar), cuff (old as dirt), hoop earrings (gift from L), assorted charms.


  1. Very cute! I love graphic tees but never seem to be able to make them work for me. I adore how you've paired it with the jacket here; it dresses it up a bit.

    Anyway, I hope you party is fun!


  2. I love the tee with the striped shirt. I'm going to have to try that. I hope you had a great Festivus!

  3. I used to be scared to do it, Wendy, but now I am fearless!

    Thanks, Julia - I love graphic tees, but they have to be just right for me.

    Thanks, Alison - my stripey shirt is one of my favourites!

  4. You match up the tee and the striped shirt better than anyone I know; I think I look like a dork in it, but you look so cool!

    We have 4 ornaments on our tree from that show; my favorite is Hermey.

  5. Thanks so much, Kristen! It's one of my favourite casual looks.

    Ha! How cool is that?

  6. Funky outfit :-) Love it! I've been searching for a stripey top, but can't find just the right thing anywhere!

  7. Thanks, Tat! I was lucky to have this one given to me.
