A whole lotta slate blue. Since I rarely wear pants (meh, just don't like them), this outfit is a bit of a switcheroo for me: first the dull colours, then the pants...what's next? A white button down? What have you done with Sheila, pants-wearing doppleganger?
The sheer blouse is new - I've been keeping my eye out for a nice classic one (that isn't black) for a while, so when I spotted this in the thrift store on the weekend for a measly $6.50, I pounced.
Speaking of pouncing, see the ears in the above photo? Someone's digging for carpet mice!
I kick back the edge of the carpet so that it doesn't show in the pictures, and Inigo loves to dig in the folds.
I've only worn the shoes once since I got them (here) - they're really more of a fall/winter/early spring shoe than a summer shoe, but I liked them with the pants. You can see the nice windowpane plaid on the pants there and bluey shade of the blouse.
What a surprise to see you in these more sedate hues. But you make them seem cutting edge, somehow!ReplyDelete
Also, love-love-LOVE the fancy dress for the birthday partay. Gorgeous!
Great monochrome look. It has good depth of an outfit with the pattern/sheerness. I love this kind of outfit.ReplyDelete
Awww Inigo is so cute!
Love the outfit ... its feeling like a Monday to me today :-) Hope your Tuesday is sunny.ReplyDelete
Since it's not a case of the mean reds, you went with the blues?ReplyDelete
I know how you feel about wearing pants, I don't like them either and if I'm wearing them, it's not a good day.
Hope the rest of the week is better for you.
You know I'm with you on pants in general, but this is a fabulous pair!ReplyDelete
Love Indigo chasing 'carpet mice'. I guess that means my cats are chasing 'bed mice' when I'm changing the sheets!
Those shoes are fantastic! Wonderful details. And those trousers make you look super-tall. I love the plaid.ReplyDelete
And your Inigo is just adorable!
That is so funny. My first choice is pants, so wearing skirts is a stretch for me. So is bright colors. That's why I admire your style so much.ReplyDelete
Would should change closets and drive ourselves crazy. hahahahaha
Aw, thanks, A-Dubs, you're too kind. A gal's gotta switch it up once in a while, right? Thanks!ReplyDelete
Wendy, thanks - Tuesday was much better. :)
Jen, you got it! Some days, I'm all right with pants, but others...not so much.
Thanks, Faith, and thank you so much for commenting!
Sal, thanks - yes, they passed the "Sheila test", they're keepers!
Thanks, Northmoon. Heh, yes, Inigo does that too - we call them "blanket mice".
Orchids, thank you! Yes, he's a sweetie.
SU, wouldn't that be hilarious - we would go crazy in a day!
