I'm still feeling so dazed - there's such a trade-off with cold medication. On the one hand, my sinuses are clear! Hurray! On the other, what were we talking about? Huh? Oh, right, Neutrals Week!
Today's neutral is brown. I have a lot of brown in my wardrobe. When I was a kid, my mom liked to dress me in brown, I think partly because she never wore it (I'm sure I will get a phone call about this). I vividly recall this really groovy polyester pantsuit in a dark chocolate brown. It was trimmed with bright orange cuffs and had a big yellow and orange flower on it.
Today's outfit:these pants today, but the thought of having to pin up the hems so that I could walk to work made me change into this ultra-suede skirt. That's my plaid jacket and not really much else all that exciting about this.
I liked the necklace with my ensemble.
Off to our Strata AGM, then I plan to crash on the couch. I am so behind on blogs, my bad (does anyone still say that?). I plan to catch up on Sunday.
Jacket (Armour Jeans, thrifted), cami (Esprit), skirt (Jones New York, thrifted), boots (Miz Mooz), necklace/earrings (Aldo Accessories).
Just a memory, or are there pictures?ReplyDelete
No pictures of that outfit, sadly, Cara!ReplyDelete
Very warm and pretty - what a great score on the scarf! I, too, would like some pics of the pantsuit : >ReplyDelete
I've been lurking this through this whole neutral week thing. Your party outfit was stunning -- from the top of your head to the tip of your toes!ReplyDelete
Would you believe it's the belt that I love on THIS brown outfit? I know - it's plain as can be. (Maybe it's that great waistline that I'm jealous of and want to reproduce in my own little reality.....)
So weird to see you in neutrals. It's just not you. Very nice outfit, but nothing more. Just "nice", you know. I love the necklace though.ReplyDelete
But with the coat it's already a completely different story :)
Personally I'm not fond of brown. Brown + black were the colors of our school uniform, and I still feel I'm pretty fed up with them. Even when I buy something brown for myself, I try to avoid the hues that are similar to my uniform. I go for cognac or rich chocolate etc. But I liked my school and my school memories are very good ones. It's just that the colors around were quite boring.
My first thoughts were "What a chic work outfit" and then I saw that coat and died. Who cares that it's neutrals week - I am becoming even more enamored with color!ReplyDelete
LOVE the coat! And I love this look! With the blazer cinched in with a belt over the flowing skirt, it looks sharp, yet feminine at the same time. You look lovely in this outfit! :-)ReplyDelete
I have a lot of brown in my wardrobe, myself, but it's a colour I've only come to like later in life; my mom liked to dress me in blue, for some reason.ReplyDelete
I've been enjoying the challenge, but wow, I would not want to wear only neutrals all the time. Next week, watch out, I'm getting into the orange.
Love this outfit, and I really love the pretty pink coat over the top of it. One of these days I must try belting a blazer; it looks really good on you.
I adore long coats - they always make one look all dressed up.ReplyDelete
All I remember while being a teen is wearing jeans. Just jeans... earlier than that, well i think dresses. You got me thinking now...
Wow, what a beautiful coral coat! and it DOES look warm!!! it's been colder than usual around here, and honestly i don't have much cold weather wear that's all that thrilling. You are giving me inspiration here!ReplyDelete
aw, i hope you feel better soon :) snuggle up with those kitties for a restorative nap!!! take care, steph
Love the pink coat!ReplyDelete
Sheila, I am beginning to think you are some sort of magical woman. You always look so spot on perfect. You look amazing in everything and this outfit is no exception.ReplyDelete
I love brown and wear it often, but what I really love is the color of that coat! Wow! My coats are all.... um.... brown. Wanna go shopping with me? I think I need to remove my brown-colored glasses!ReplyDelete
I know this is Neutrals Week, but I LOVE THAT COAT!!!ReplyDelete
