Ah, this weekend has just flown by!
Here I am being blown about by the wind this morning.
I actually wore nearly the same outfit yesterday, but L and I slept in and were running late to join friends for lunch, so I didn't have time to photograph it. After brunch, we all went to the museum to see an exhibit of wildlife photography, which was wonderful. Then home for a nap, then up late again with Cat and Ross and a rousing game of Arkham Horror.
Today, I'm wearing a thin grey long-sleeved tee (yesterday's was burgundy), my Smoking Lily moose tee, knee high socks and my black riding boots.
I strolled down to get groceries in this, then ventured over to My Sister's Closet for a poke around.
here and here. The voting results:
- Like it: 49
- Lose it: 49
Wow, a tie! This is a first! The verdict is: I'm keeping it. But it's going to go with my less-worn stuff that I don't wear very frequently, like my costume pieces. I like this skirt; the style is so unusual, but I'm a little tired of it right now - but I know I'll never find anything like it again. So, narrowly, it squeaks through and stays in my closet.
Jacket (Le Chateau), moose tee (Smoking Lily), grey tee (Jacob, consignment), skirt (Dolcezza), boots (Aldo, consignment).
We're also ready for the verdict on the blue and white silk blouse:
here, here and here. The votes are:
- Like it: 110
- Lose it: 54
And the verdict is: Like it - I'm keeping it. And I think we all agree: wear it tucked in! This top is a classic case of an item that I didn't really try that hard to style when I first got it. It's great quality and lovely fabric, but I didn't know what to do with it. Forcing myself to try different options to make it work for me and my body type results in me keeping a blouse that I otherwise might have just passed along (sorry, Kara!).
Well, that was exciting. I do enjoy seeing how people have voted.
Moving right along, here's what I bought shopping today:
I loved the swooshy silk of this skirt:

And how's your weekend been? Full of good things, I hope!
