Since I've been doing this blog for about 2 years, (and I brought a new digital camera to replace the one that died on me right before Christmas!) I thought it was time I put a few pics up of my daily wear.....
Shirt - Eddie Bauer
Pants - Lands End
Sweater - Lord and Taylor
Bag - Etienne Aigner Bruckner Tote
(I warn you - IF I decide to do this sort of post often, you are going to be seeing a LOT of black!)
Pretty much everything I was wearing on Monday were beloved oldies. It was going to be a mostly at the desk day - no meetings scheduled - but I knew that if I was pulled into one, this outfit would not only work but I would feel very comfortable in it. And that cashmere sweater is nice and toasty - definitely needed on the cold Chi-town day that Monday was! (It was a great buy too - $50.00 bucks down from I believe $150.00 during the "Water Tower Lord and Taylor, American Girl Store is kickin' us to the curb" - closing sale about a year ago.)
And speaking of go to black, do yourself a BIG favor and check out the wonderful slide show On the Street - The Modern Woman by NY Times photographer Bill Cunningham. The pictures are wonderful as is Mr. Cunningham's narration. (Big old shout out of thanks to About: Women's Fashion for the heads up on this one!)
Green around the gills is what I was wearing - sick and working from home! What did I wear? You don't want to know!
Shirt - Talbot's Stretch cotton sateen blouse - Bittersweet
Sweater - Talbot's Belted tweed cardigan - Balsam Green
Pants - Sears Covington
Handbag - Etienne Aigner Bruckner Tote
The Talbot pieces are new - the shirt and sweater worked great with my chocolate brown Covington pants.
Took my mom to a doctor's appointment - knock about clothes, strictly going for comfort! (Yes, I'm cheating - I'm not going to share!)
Family issue, working at home again!
So as you can see, I'm pretty much your average 50s+ gal - I've put on the pounds as I've gotten older, but gee I still have to dress (go figure!). And because I, like so many women, are one size on top and another on the bottom, my closet is composed mainly of separates.
Special thanks to my long suffering sister for taking the pics!
