It has been a tragic week with the bombings at the Boston Marathon and today, at the Texas fertilizer plant. My thoughts and prayers goes out to all the victims, their loved ones, and those living in the surrounding areas.
I rarely wear a black outfit for I think it only serves to emphasize how skinny I am but on the rare occasion of not knowing what to wear, one can always fall back to wearing an all black outfit! I decided to play with textures for this black outfit to keep it a little less boring and chose to pair the outfit with oxfords to balance out the bow, ruffles and pleats.
Looks like we have gone from a cool Spring straight to Summer here in DC! This means my dresses and skirts will be on full rotation mode! Wearing this purple dress today in my rotation of dresses (last seen here). I’m pairing the dress with a stripe sash instead for a fresh outfit and it matches the stripe lining of the ZARA blazer, hence the title of today’s post. 😉
We finally had a real proper Spring weekend, where we had a Spring day with sunshine and a rainy, misty Spring day, the next. I’m loving the weather and have no complaints! Here’s my outfit from the weekend incorporating two trends for this Spring – floral and stripes.
It’s much warmer today, or rather the weather is more apt of Fall with a high of mid-60s. Thus, a lighter coat and since it’s a Federal holiday – Veteran’s Day – I’m wearing jeans to work on a Monday! (I work for a government contractor, so Federal holiday = no clients)
I usually pair this top and scarf together as a go-to outfit but decided to add the argyle vest into the mix and mix prints together. Since it’s all different shades of purple, I think it worked out pretty well. That or maybe I’m biased!
