I posted earlier asking you all to shop my closet and create new outfits for me:
and I received lots of wonderful suggestions! Thank you!
Here are the first two outfits I wore based on your requests--more to come! Sounds like several of you requested the bee blouse and Missoni blouses so those will definitely be up next! Feel free to contribute more requests--this is lots of fun! Thanks for the suggestions!
1-4. Dotty Snake. This is Cheryl's inspired suggestion to pair the polka dot blouse with the snakeskin skinnies, and I threw in Modgrl's suggestion (waving back at Dotty twin!) to do dot on dot with the polka dot bag and blouse. I wore this on a MOTG day, so I was a bit overdressed compared to everyone else (and the weather was hot so I had to ditch the leather jacket) but matchy matchy me really likes the pairing of dotty blouse and dotty bag, snakeskin pants plus snakeskin texture on the bag, and garnet colored pants and matching ballet flats! So fun!

White House Black Market black and silver pendant necklace
WHBM hammered silver UWP stretch bracelet
5-9. Today I'm trying out JennyAnne's suggestion to pair the Anthro floral skirt with a denim jacket, which is perfect given Angie's blog post today:
I paired it with a burgundy shirt with lace sleeves from Anthro, and some old burgundy and gold necklace and earring set from Ann Taylor (I'm in a matchy matchy kick right now if you can't tell!). I really love the pairing of skirt with cropped denim jacket, but it is a tad casual for work, so I left the jacket off at work (anyways, you can't see the lace sleeves with the jacket on). And of course, any excuse to wear my Chie Mihara sandals, so here they are again! BTW looking at the pics, I am not happy about the lumpy apple tummy (so I am really sucking it in in #6, haha). I'm doing the 30-day shred (just finished level 1) but it's not helping!
