#1-2: February 29. New combination of pieces: Apt. 9 top that's seen a lot of wear, new black skirt, and Chelsea Crew maroon shoes. They have kind of a mod look that's fun. This was a comfortable, practical, and pulled-together outfit for a Monday.

#3-4: March 1. The colors are really washed out here. I think it worked pretty well overall, though I'd prefer a more neutral belt that didn't grab attention. (Way too many possibilities on Amazon, FYI.) Navy multicolor floral "sweatshirt," sage green skirt, and navy 1940s/50s shoes. Second pic with a soft cotton twill moto in pretty blue: score from a random brand in JCPenney's juniors section. This was mostly worn as outerwear and not a topper.

#5: March 1 (choir). It was quite a day, so I reached for "comfort" items when changing: school t-shirt, jeggings, and Cole Haan sneakers.

#6-7: March 2. This top has never photographed well; it's the green-base animal print. With black skirt, cowboy boots, and Western-style belt. I didn't remember until several hours later that it happened to be Texas Independence Day.

#8: March 3. Favorite blue knit dress, this time styled for warmer weather with scrunched sleeves, nude hose, and black-and-white d'orsay flats. I got these flats last summer in a bid for summer footwear that incorporated black without being too heavy/attention-grabbing or too stark. I really like them.

#9: March 3 (choir). Navy floral sweatshirt again, green skater skirt, black tights, and green low-heel pumps.

#10-11: March 4. End of a hard week. I can say that the blue dress and shoes match perfectly...

#12-15: March 5. Crazy Saturday! I started out running errands, including another stop at Kohl's. Somehow I ended up spending most of the afternoon helping my brother and parents build my brother a flagstone patio and retaining wall. I'm good at arranging natural flagstones; it's like laying out a sewing pattern for cutting. I got a bit dusty, but nothing that won't wash!

This day ended up quite warm, but it started chilly and I hate being cold. The black is my admission that it really isn't summer or even spring yet! Buzz Lightyear t-shirt (superimposed on constellation Orion) in navy, chambray eShakti skirt, black elastic belt, Simply Vera sneakers, and light gray mixed-media jacket. It's sort of military/futuristic/Members Only all at once, in twill with lots of topstitching, faux leather, and knit side panels.
