Just playing around...
I started with the dress tights and boots...
Grabbed this skirt...
Left the house in this...
Dress: LOFT (last year's clearance)
Skirt: LOFT ($14 this pas fall)
Sweater: LOFT (old)
Scarf: GAP (Christmas present)
Necklace & Earrings: Charming Charlie (Christmas present)
Trusty Purse: Liz Claiborne (Goodwill - $4.00)
Boots: Clarks (OLD)
(No money spent this year towards this outfit.)
Ok. So this outfit will not make my top 10 OR my top 20, but I'm a firm believer in trying things. Maybe a more form fitting sweater would improve the overall look, but I was warm, comfortable and ended up trading the skirt for jeans later in the day. Liked that even more. Wish I had a pic to share. One of these days I will take the time to get the photos taken before I leave the house. However, I'm hard pressed at being punctual as it is!
I hope you are having a fabulous week and feel encouraged to experiment with what you already have hanging in that closet. C'mon! Just learn from my mistakes and tenacious tendency to lean towards a -"I should be pushing a shopping cart around my neighborhood, picking up items I find as I go along"- look. :)
