Above, this ultra-soft Vince oversized tunic, one I hug tightly as one of my daughters has been seriously coveting it since she first saw it on me (I scoured shops for a second one in her smaller size but no luck). My JBrand skinny cords, already a bit big when I bought them, are getting a bit too loose thanks to WeightWatchers; I'm trying to prolong the inevitable and to wear them as much as I can beforegiving in and consigning them. Flat ankle boots, bought in Bordeaux the summer before last (and shown here, with bare legs), and paisley scarf, silk, Club Monaco.
But then I tired of those earth tones, all mellow, wholesome, quiet. Time for a bit of sparkle, no? Gap sweatshirt, Club Monaco skirt, and patent Browns oxfords, at least four years old. . . .Personally, I think this length skirt works better on me with a heel, but I'm not always up for the hips-and-knees wear-and-tear. And I think the sparkle needs the flats, to stay grounded for weekday daywear. . . (Hmmm, I see I wore it with low heels here, but with an even longer skirt, and I might prefer the earlier look -- might even try to replicate it today!)
I'll remind you of what I said earlier about my What I Wore posts: I'm NOT looking for approval or flattery or, even, constructive criticism. And I'm obviously not trying to teach you anything about how to dress (ha! say both of us). I'm just sharing, because how I dress is important to me, still, at 60, and it's a Part of my life. Just Part. .
