… that’s how long my husband has survived matrimony with yours truly (and, coincidentally, how long this blog has been around). And this is the outfit I wore for a quick date night to celebrate said anniversary. (Love ya, babe!) It’s one of my favourite dresses, updated with a brand new pair of fancy schmancy shoes. Oh, and a return to lipgloss, because I turn into a 13-year old in the make-up aisle at Superstore, apparently.
The shoes are surprisingly comfortable for such strappy, highs-heeled contraptions — which is to say that I could walk in them for about an hour before they started to hurt. That’s … pretty good, all things considered. I was honestly surprised. Why would I buy shoes which I expected would hurt my feet? Good question, but see exhibit A: they are yellow; and Exhibit B: they are cute. I feel like I can rest my case now, yes?
As a bonus, here are a few of the other times I wore this dress.
Somehow, I frequently forget this skirt. I don’t know why, it’s such a good one. From the first glimpse, I was taken with the abstract, minimalist print and the interesting cut of the faux wrap panel. I eventually found it on the BR clearance rack, and now I kinda regret not getting the matching top. You know me and matching skirts & blouses.
Since I’m on that whole minimalist style (not closet! never a minimalist closet) kick lately, I just added a simple black sweater. Some tried and tested accessories — my fave tassel pendant and blue suede pumps — added a bit of flair and, voila. A not-so-casual Friday outfit.
June was a challenging month for a variety of reasons, most of them not pertinent to this blog. From a sartorial perspective, a few things *are* happening, but they deserve (and will likely get) their own post. In the meantime, I will say simply this: without looking at the photos, I feel like I was all over the map, style-wise, this month. There were many days when I felt only “meh” about my outfits, which would not be acceptable if the cause was solely my wardrobe; I have too many clothes to not be consistently happy with what I wear. However, I have a suspicion that my dissatisfaction was, in many cases, a symptom of other things going on in my life, which had nothing to do with the contents of my closet. So, I’m going to give myself a pass.
And, who knows, maybe the evidence won’t be too damning. Shall we take a look?
Onwards and upwards! July is going to be another challenging month, as far as style is concerned, because I will be in a 3 week hearing, which means that I will have to adjust my outfit choices accordingly. Time to go all black, all the time? Stay tuned 😉
