Today I was thinking of wearing my new linen dress, making use of your great feedback on styling. But it was pouring buckets this morning, so that outfit was shelved for another day.

Here are a few of my outfits this week, starting with today and working backwards. Also some bonus shots of a couple of bags I got at NAS. One I'm keeping, and one I've already returned.

1-2 (worn for teaching class): gray linen slouchy pants (made by me); gray modal short-sleeved tee (Caslon); coral 3/4-sleeved cardigan (Halogen); stone and cream belt (Annette Goertz); gray leather sneakers (Josef Seibel, Caspian).

3-6 (worn for a day off): white boyfriend jeans (Kut from the Kloth, Catherine); gray hatchy-print tee (made by me); black-gray-silver narrow belt; black loafers (Munro).

Photo 5: cross-body bag in black and snakeskin print (Amy Kestenberg)--I'm keeping this one. I think it will be great for travel, and it will go with black, dark brown, and caramel shoes and short boots that I have.

Photo 6: convertible tote in black and snakeskin print (Amy Kestenberg)--I've returned this one. I didn't like the scale of the bag for me--a little too big for what I wanted. It's a fun bag, though, and the leather feels really nice.

7-8 (worn to work): black slouchy skinnies with zipper pockets and front slask pockets with embellished flaps (tucked in)(Mos Mosh); silk snakeskin print tee in blues, greens, gray and black on ivory (made by me); fancy-buckle belt (BedStu); black satchel (Elliott Lucca); black oxfords (Josef Seibel). I tried rolling the pants above the oxfords again, after getting feedback here on an attempt at this look with green chinos. I think I like it.

Any thoughts and suggestions are welcome. Thanks for looking!
