My first proposed outfit met with some criticisms here (; the general feeling was that it was too drab. (Thanks to Ali and others for this comment.) Some didn't like the pattern mix/ neckline either, so I am holding my breath about today's look!

And, as luck would have it, instead of being rainy and cool as the forecast predicted, today dawned hot and sunny! So it felt like a different kind of outfit was required anyway.

I didn't have time to check this one over, so I'm crossing fingers that I have done okay.

This is my birthday homage to MaryK:

Pencil skirt! Pattern mixing: stripes, ditsy floral, abstract floral, leopard! Bright colour! Red and leopard as neutrals!! And Mary's scarf gets a starring role.

This is for the reading at the Seniors Centre, starting soon.

Sorry to post and run.

MaryK magic scarf
Brooks Brothers shirt
VC tube skirt (keeping it anyway to wear without hose; at minimum I will wear it 4 months a year, so it's okay....)
VC leopard wedges
Belt from a shop in Stratford
Cuff a gift from my brother when I was 8!

PS: I am tucking because that is what my mother would like me to do. And she is 87.
