I could seriously write a book about lost items of clothing...this shirt jumped out of the armoire while I was digging for a tee shirt - I had forgotten about this one since last spring or early summer. I love this color of coral so much! I wanted to pair it with something bright -- my choices were cobalt or red pencil skirt. I didn't think I was bold enough to try red + coral, so this was the next best pick. I wanted to try to de-vamp this look as much as possible, so I added the flats and a jacket, though I'm sitting now with no jacket on because I don't feel as uncomfortable in this as I thought I would. Still feeling like Joan from Mad Men, but oh well!
I've always been one to try to wear pumps and heels because I thought that my legs looked stumpy otherwise, but in reviewing these pics, I think the legs look fine. I've been running for 2 years, and my previously wimpy calves have finally decided to grow up and be somebody. I worked in the weight room for years to beef up my calves and it never really took, so I'm proud of my borderline wide calves these days because they balance out my upper legs.
I also threw in a pic from Saturday -- it was low 60s and rain expected, and we were heading for a day at the children's museum. I couldn't pass up a chance to wear my new purple chacos...even though they may look clunky with the BF jeans. They matched my sweater perfectly! I bought TWO pairs of brightly colored Chacos to replace my favorite brown pair (RIP runaway Chacos!). I expect any day now for them to turn up, since I have not one, but two replacement pairs.
