Three in One

February 7, 2012

Here’s a quick look at some of the outfits I threw together this past week.

Picture 1: Thrifted cardigan, Missoni for Target tunic worn inside out (I like the pattern better that way), boots from outlet sale, thrifted bracelets, earrings by Lynx.

Picture 2: Maxi dress $5 at outlet sale, Target cardigan, consignment store belt, thrifted and upcycled sweater vest and leather “armlets”, thrifted boots, pendant by Lynx.

Picture 3: Thrifted boots, top, and beaded skirt, Target cardigan, TJ Maxx leather jacket (on sale), DSW hat, earrings by Lynx.

My quick default is usually a maxi dress or skirt.  I find them comfortable and easy to style. This week, though, I wanted some alternatives and tried a few different proportions.  Can’t be too predictable!

Have a good one, y’all.

    Every look is unique, but elegant (including your beautiful hair). The over the knee boots are very special and you wear them well. And the beaded skirt has amazing detail. You are far from predictable!

    Wow, I can enlarge the photos and seem them more in detail. Yeah~!!

    I would love to try the third look (picture 3)…but knowing I’m almost half a foot shorter than you, I’m not too sure. hmmm.

      I meant, “see” them. Wish I can edit my comments.

    I’m SO glad I found your beautiful blog! I’m adding it to my Favorite Folder entitled “Beaty over 50″, which I consult constantly for style inspiration. I’m 59 but feeling & looking the best in my life, and I want my style to reflect the youthful vitality I feel in a tasteful way. Thanks for sharing your beauty and style!

      Thank you so much! We are the same age. It’s pretty great, huh! I visited your site and plan on doing so frequently. With my children I tried to instill a daily reflection on “the best part of my day”, but your blog takes it to a new level. I like it!! I wanted to respond to your blog directly but I haven’t learned how, yet, today. Maybe I’ll learn that tomorrow. In the meantime, please stay in touch!
