Playing in the closet


So while my son and husband were out spending time with Granny, and While I was SUPPOSED to be folding laundry (don't worry I got it done, well,  it is in process) I stayed home and played in my closet today.  Usually I don't take pictures of every combo, because it is tedious and ridiculous for me to do that, but I thought maybe I would today to record a little bit of my process.  I purposely withheld the FINAL OUTFIT that I came to because I will probably wear it Monday and don't want to be redundant.  I absolutely DO NOT plan every outfit this way, but I had the time today, and its fun sometimes to be completely unproductive.  These elements are things I am playing with in anticipation of spring. Some are working, some are not.  Some I thought were working but now that I see them in photographs I am not so sure (top Skirt looks too big or boxy or something, and not sure if the mix of black and brown leathers work either.)

I am in desperate need of a hair cut and color, so I hope to do that and video tape the cut tomorrow.  In the mean time, Happy Weekend!

COMMENT OF THE DAY:  Today's pic was difficult since there were so many VERY sweet comments!  And a lot of new blogs for me to check out!  Thanks so much for stopping by!!

i just rediscovered your blog...don't know how it slipped my radar for so long, but i'm glad i found it again so i can follow all of the lovely fashion inspiration you have to offer.
i may or may not have just gone through the last.... oh ....maybe 10 pages of your blog. you are absolutely beautiful and a complete fashion inspiration. the way you pair things is so fresh and lovely. and i actually adore the first outfit in this post. the juxtaposition of the leather skirt with the floral and the unexpected bit of brown leather. i think it's perfection...but that's just me.

so glad to have (re!)found you! xo

I especially love the last outfit. Reminds me of Katharine Hepburn a little bit. It looks like it would be a perfect outfit for a spring day.

Sidewalk Chalk said...

I really like these combinations -- especially the first and last ones. You look like Katharine Hepburn in the last one -- love your take on menswear-inspired looks.

so adorable, and i love your hat and shoes!

ru.kurarin said...

It's a great idea to do this when one has time! First, you can clear out stuff you realise you never wear and won't wear and second, you know what works on a day when you have to put something together really quickly.

I'm loving the folded over chambray shirt (menswear gets pretty!) with the comfy-looking light pants and hat in the last photo--it's such a great warm weather look...I'd love a black 1950's style one-piece bathing suit underneath also! spring is coming!

Actually, I LOVE the first skirt combo! Looks great!!!....and please know that you have given me an abundant amount of support through everything and without us even really knowing one another. It makes me so happy to see that people can be kind and supportive....this just proves there is still hope for our world.

chicfaced (Megan) said...

that orange skirt (or dress?) is h-o-t - your legs look amazing! It is fun to sometimes play around in your closet to get re-inspired and a cold winter day is just the kind of day to do that!

That hat is so great on you. I absolutely love the last outfit - so classic and chic.

sfordinarygirl said...

I always enjoy visiting your blog. It brings immense joy and inspiration as I've been living in running clothes on the weekend barely leaving the house.

I love how you take a structured/formal shirt (light blue one) and wear it so casually especially the cutoff shorts and the orange skirt.

La Historiadora de Moda said...

I can't even begin to tell you how much I love that first outfit! The last one is also so great, and, as some of the others in the comments have noted, looks so Kate Hepburnesque.

HeatherClark said...

Wanderlusting Fool said...

ooo I love love love the last photo. Sort of has a beachy vibe with the light blue and white pants. I was pretty unproductive this weekend. But seriously how tiring would it be to be productive 24/7?! Its just not possible!

Thanks for posting all these combos. Its neat to see how your outfits progressed. :)
