Angie's post today about variety got me thinking about how much I change in my dressing from day to day. I do like variety. Sometimes it feels like I'm repeating a lot, because I'll get stuck on a concept or an item. It's not the kind of repeating that may be very obvious to others, though. Today I ended up reaching for a burgundy vest after having worn a red and black cardigan the day before that looks like a merlot shade. I think it was a subconscious link to yesterday's outfit by color. And perhaps the ombre plaid peasant top today was inspired by my ombre plaid coat yesterday; who knows? And yesterday's outfit incorporated the same black tee I had worn the day before--just because I didn't want to wear a clean shirt to the hairdresser, where it would ultimately get covered in little hair clippings. And then I kept the shirt on the rest of the day, anyway!

The outfits:
1-2 (worn for a day off and haircut): dark boyfriend jeans (Kut from the Kloth, Catherine); black long sleeved crew-neck tee (Caslon); red and black wool knit shawl-front cardigan (made by me); black belt with pewter ornate buckle (Bed Stu); flat black booties (Munro, Lexie); black, gray, beige, and ivory ombre plaid double-breasted coat (Michael Kors); black and brown snake print cross-body bag (Aimee Kestenberg); black knit gloves (Jeanne Simmons).

4-5 (worn to work): charcoal skinny ankle pants (Classiques Entier, City Weave Ankle Pants); maroon, gray, and black ombre plaid wool gauze peasant top (made by me); maroon chunky knit, cabled sweater vest (Caslon); espresso moto boots (Miu Miu). No photo of the coat, but I wore my Michael Kors trench and carried my taupe Aunts & Uncles hobo bag.

I welcome your thoughts and suggestions! Thanks for looking.
