Happy 4th to my fellow readers here in the US! In the spirit of American Independence Day, I decided to don red, white and blue for my outfit to run errands earlier this morning. I’ll also be wearing the same outfit this evening for a gathering at a friend’s place for some food and fireworks.
In an effort to wear layers and create a new outfit, I layered a sleeveless button down on top of my shirt dress which resulted in an outfit that Mademoiselle Chanel would approve of! I previously wore the same top to create another outfit channeling Coco Chanel here. I think a Chanel brooch adds a touch of class to just about any outfit. I also took Chanel’s advice – “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and remove one accessory,” as I had thought of wearing my long pearl necklace as a bracelet but decided otherwise. Looking back at this outfit though, perhaps I should have worn red shoes but I wanted to to keep the outfit as neutral as possible and let the bag be the pop of color. What do you think?
Instead of accessorizing this green dress with my usual brown or gold accessories (last seen here), I decided to dress up with pearl accessories instead. I have to share though that despite my hopes of coming across as classy with my outfit, I most certainly wasn’t as I realized half-way through lunch that I had grease stains all over the top left side of my dress! Yeap, grease stains were partying on my dress. I had to apologize to my dress since she’d been sitting in the closet this whole time since late Summer/early Fall only to be brought out on a mighty warm Spring day and be splattered with grease stains!
Just a quick outfit shoot for it was one of those Tundra-like days! I rarely wear gloves unless it’s bitter cold out, so that should explain the lack of gloves with my winter outfits. Yes, I have Winter blues and can’t wait for the warm & humid weather in a few days!
On a side note, I am still trying to get back to my regular schedule on blogging. It has been rough as October was a bittersweet month filled with good and less-than-stellar memories. Also, it doesn’t help that the day is getting shorter and a lot of times there isn’t much light in the morning let alone evening!
In any case, kindly bear with me as I work my way back into my regular schedule. I still have my New York and Paris trips to blog about that I am getting behind! Well, hopefully I’ll be able to sort through them this weekend.
