Thank you all so much! It is so nice to be able to discuss my little experiments .
To everyone who mentioned the first bag - The bag is not horribly uncomfortable perfectly fine for carrying to a restaurant or even an office where it mostly just sits there. But my days are usually a combination of things and when I am walking around I prefer a bag that leaves my hands free.
kellygirl - Thanks! I see everyone is divided on those shoes, glad you are a fan!
Jenni NZ I hear you about the shoes - I happen to like both delicate and stompy shoes, but understand that most people have a preference.
Thank you Bijou - I almost always default to jeans so this was a fun way to remind myself I have other options.
Thank you Debbie, Slim Cat, Brooklyn, suntiger and Dee - your comments are very appreciated!
Sharan - Glad you like my chunky shoe choice!
lyn67 - You are right I did have a practical reason - actually two. The pants are a bit long on me and the shoes gave me the extra height and the shoes are new to me and I wanted to test them out!
What a nice thing to say Sisi, thank you!
kkards - thank you and yes, the floral pants are really outside of my usual wheelhouse, you are right!
Runcarla - the neckline is what sold it for me too
Olive Green - Thank you - yes, I agree about color near my face.
Oh Janet, you have no idea .
Angie - I think my next extra might need to be bag focused. I was hoping to tempt you to jump over from Greece to steal my shoes !
ETA Wow, thank you Helena!
