Happy Monday everyone - if there is such a thing! (lol)
Today's outfit started with my wool blend blackwatch tartan trousers - definitely one of my favourite purchases for fall/winter. Last week I picked up a couple of drapey tees for layering, one in green specifically to wear with these trousers. I then topped the green tee with my navy Lanai blazer. I love the colour combination and fluidity in the outfit. For footwear I chose my black patent booties (another favourite purchase for the season) and went with my navy vintage handbag and a vintage gold bracelet for accessories. It makes me smile to wear a fairly modern outfit and then juxtapose that with a couple of vintage touches.
What do you think? does this all work together? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.
I also wanted to show you the fab gifts from my Secret Santa - a trio of beautiful and warm socks (in animal print and zebra print no less!) and this fantastic little mini emergency kit with sewing thread, lip balm, wipes, nail file, tampon, etc. You name it, it's tucked into this brilliant little package. Thank you so much my Secret Santa :)
I'm not sure how my participation is going to be on the forum over the next month with the frenzy of finishing up what I can in my present job and changing over to the new one. I hope it isn't bad forum etiquette to still post my outfits but not always be able to provide much in commentary on others' threads? And my sincere thanks to all of your wonderful wishes and congratulations on my new job thread in Off Topics. You are all WONDERFUL!!!
