It's been a very busy week at work, and the weather is still more warm than cold, so I've been trying to wear my summery clothes just a bit longer before the chilly weather hits.
I recently exchanged my J Crew Pixilated Houndstooth for a bigger size. I originally got the 00 petite, but I felt it was a bit too short for my middle-aged knees. I re-bought it on super sale in size 00 regular, and am much happier with the length. For reference the 00P was only 18", whereas the 00 is 21". Much more elegant on someone of my age. The only small thing is that it's a bit roomier in the hips and derrière, so poofs out a bit on my boyish lower half. I might get it taken in a smidge, but will see how I go for a few wearings before deciding.
Here it is with an old Wrangler jacket. Note I'm wearing sandals instead of running shoes! Sadly, it's only for the pics. I still don't want to risk walking in anything other than my vile Nikes.
The sandals are coral leather ones with a 2" chunky heel by L'Autre Chose, bought on Shoescribe for $80. I love them - they're very comfy and have my ideal heel height.
If I have time this weekend I'm going to post an ode to my shoes with some better pics. I've been inspired by other bloggers' shoe porn posts.
Under I wore a Wolford Athens top in deep purple colour. I LOVE Wolford! Their tights and tops are incredibly good quality. I have Wolford cotton opaques that are still in great condition after 6 years! They aren't cheap, but they just last and last. Not to mention the very high cotton content, which I adore in winter.
Here's another predictably bright work outfit, seen before on this blog when I was still on crutches.
J Crew factory skirt (taken in), J Crew Jackie cardigan, old Mulberry postman's lock saddle bag, J Crew blue bangle. And runners.
Hope you have a fab weekend. Is anyone else a fan of Wolford?
