Photos 7-9: Saturday I look inspiration from Angie's outfits chosen with her mum in mind...the middle one with what looks like a silky buttondown top and dark pants. I layered a silk kimono inspired jacket over a deep red tank, worn with dark denim straight jeans and pointy silver flat loafers and a large silver tote. This for a day at a retreat. My challenge was to wear a seldom worn dark red EF tank. Usually I wear the jacket with black or light Aqua tops. I wanted to be comfortable for sitting all day and creative because this was a group of artists. Did I succeed?
Photos 1-6: Today, Sunday, for Mass I wore my favorite dress. It is a black EF silk shift dress that I duplicated when I shrunk out of my first one. It is very plain and can be dressed up or down, belted, jacketed, take all sorts of accessories. I just wish this ballet neck dress came in more colors. It looks as if it has too much volume but hangs well and looks better in motion. In photos 4-6, it is shown with a blush jacket. Is it best open or buttoned? My challenge with this outfit is to wear blush and black, a color combo I have wanted to try since seeing it everywhere a couple of years ago in Japan. I needed to find the right blush. The wedge sandals and jacket are blush with the black dress. Does this work, do you think?
