Well, this week is just truckin' along, isn't it? Here I am behind again. Thanks for all your good wishes - I was feeling pretty good today, but then I went and overextended myself. Ah well, I would have wasted that time anyway. But as soon as I'm done this blog entry, I am going to bed. Just me and my Neo Citran. Ahhhhh...
But enough of my whining! Today is grey day! I couldn't entirely forgo colour, but I did mostly grey.olive green tee (2nd outfit) over top, then my groovy stripey cardi over that.
I had our annual WW Christmas dinner tonight and just got home - I am so exhausted. I was told that this outfit is very bland for me. Frankly, I felt bland. Although I like the outfit, I couldn't dress in neutrals all the time. I think the real challenge for Neutrals Week for me is not putting together the outfits - you know I have the clothes for it! - but in maintaining my usual sunny demeanour when not wearing bright colours. Huh.
The skirt is new-to-me - it's another Smoking Lily one! This was $38.00, which is still in my range for Smoking Lily, and I got it at a consignment shop. It's a wool/poly knit blend, and it is lovely and warm and stretchy. Check out the back.
|Aw, look at Inigo! He's so cute.|
My outerwear was also all grey, except for the coat, of course.
This is a close-up of the skirt back. The pale green leaf on the left is silk, one shape is just embroidered directly on the fabric (see it?), the top olive leaf is cotton, and I think the bottom olive leaf is hemp or some other more coarse cloth.
Camper concrete shoes (last outfit), my chainmail necklace and my steel ball earrings.
Tomorrow is brown! Totally in my wheelhouse.
