But I did snap photos two mornings this week, and I thought I might show them to you. Above and below, one of the simplest outfits (if such a simple combination could be called an outfit) I've ever absolutely loved wearing. The dress is in a heavy poly jersey; it's by Vince and it's such a delicious shape, really. Feels wonderful to move in, has in-seam pockets at the hip, a great pleat for slimming its generosity, length to suit an adult, and I believe it's pretty close to elegant for a dress that I can bike to the ferry in. With my gold Wendy B fleur-de-lis necklace, an arm party of favourite bracelets, my Hermès double-tour watch, and these simple Vince shoes, I will confess to feeling some of Lisa's oft-cited impunity. (The dress plays nicely with heels and hose as well.)
here and here, are earning their keep. Worn with the same Vince shoes, bracelet arm party, watch, fleur-de-lis necklace as shown above with my dress, I think the pants look great topped with this light merino J. Crew sweater whose loose draping matches their casual vibe without looking sloppy.
I'm noticing some happy repetitions in the outfits I'm wearing and posting recently. I sense that this is me, settling into a happy groove. What about you? As the season changes, are you noticing patterns establishing themselves in what you pull from the wardrobe? Or are you making changes? (check out Sue's post on "Turning" her closet for another perspective on seasonal sartorial habits). I'd love to hear your thoughts, if you have a minute.
I'm off to my stylist's now -- Have a Happy Weekend!
