Many outfits! Some close repeats and a few casual outfits. Also pondering some of the full skirt designs.

#1-3: February 10. Navy shirt dress again, this time with pale pink accents: rose gold pumps, vintage pink leather belt, vintage orchid brooch and earrings. Gray patterned hose. Also Old Navy gray pointelle cardigan, a recent ebay find.

#4-6: February 11. Alas, this didn't photograph well at all. The wrap front top actually works on me; there's plenty of material for it to hang gracefully, and I can pin it to prevent any embarrassment. I never get animal print, but the top was part of the same line that the skater skirt is from. They're an *almost* identical color match. Also, pearls! Vintage set, 50s or 60s. I have matching earrings, but the clips need adjusted and they were bigger than I wanted to wear that day.

#7-8: February 12. Running-errands outfit: Periwinkle empire waist dress and drape-front belted cardigan. Comfortable, but I don't enjoy two neutrals.

#9-10: February 14 (morning). Valentine's outfit for church. (Also my birthday, so I wanted to commemorate.) I love that dress; my first of the eShakti custom-fit knits. But wow, it makes my hips look WIDE. It's a full skirt, but I do well in those. Maybe it's the length? Or just my blindness, and I really do look like this? There's just something off about that second picture.

#11-12: February 14 (evening). Family birthday party! I wanted to be very comfortable, since the evening would probably include handling nieces (2.5 years and 6 months). Navy ponte dress, gray cardigan, pink scarf, Ecco boots. I think the cardigan, scarf, and boots were all discarded when I got to the house.

#13-14: February 15. Dress in small plaid (black on red) with black trim, and tights and Chelsea boots. One of my more business-like outfits, though I wonder about the cutout. It's not revealing at all, but it might be a bit unexpected. The skirt is about as full as the solid red dress, but I think looks slimmer. Hmm.

#15: February 16. Green knit dress with black cropped cardigan, patterned tights, and ankle strap flats. The tights were not my preference with this outfit, but I was a bit desperate. I had a sore spot from the Chelseas and these flats were the next best choice. This is the same knit material as the red dress.

#16-17: February 16 (evening). Choir rehearsal. Linen knit top, jeggings, ankle strap flats. Birthday present necklace in rose gold.

#18: February 17. Spring's beginning! New skirt in pale sage green, plus navy semisheer "sweatshirt." I like the delicate mix of color and texture in this. I think it needs a re-wear; the sweatshirt's days are numbered until it's retired for the summer.

#19-20: February 18. Another warm day. This is actually a vibrant coral, not at all the cantaloupe it corrected to. Currently my favorite eShakti knit model, but I thought it would be more pink (see Find). I think next time I will customize with a shorter skirt and *not* custom shoulder-to-bust-point measurements. I'm a half measure there and it resulted in a little too much length, so the deep V gaps in this dress unlike the crane dress. I also didn't wear the sweater buttoned over it, except under my coat; I prefer it open for a bit less pinup vibe.
