I was in a rush this morning. I was distracted and didn't get in the shower until half an hour before I had to leave.

I did some purging over the weekend and two of the pieces I wore today just barely made the cut. I really like the way these express jeans fit in the hip and thigh but the color is a bit meh. I ordered the top from zara at least a year ago and never wore it. It is a silk/cotton blend which is a favorite fabric for me so I gave it another shot. I added the Gibson jacket, my pewter oxfords, le mer watch and a small chain to break up the chest a bit.

If I decide to keep the jeans, I may check out Vix's instructions for dying them a darker color - maybe grey.

I realized when I looked at the pic that I don't like the look of the shoes with this but it was too late by then.

What do you think? Should I have been more ruthless?
