I’ve got, here, a couple of outfits for you Style Nation that are now nearly a month old. Last time I posted, the thrill of the new chambray dress made those dress pictures jump the queue, leaving today’s outfits in the dust. Today, I present a study in colorful pencil skirts. Also a preview of new boots.
I bought this sweater in a fit of “Joe shopping madness” (TM, obviously) when in the Great White North for the holidays. What sold me on it was the picture of a model wearing it with a grey pencil skirt. Yet, once I got this sucker home and paired it with my own grey pencil skirt, it didn’t quite work (I may need to re-evaluate as that sounds crazy). But, with this blue skirt, total winner. Also, I may have blinded my students with my colorful brightness that day.
I bought this skirt in the fall, while I wasn’t teaching so it hasn’t gotten a ton of wear yet but I’m doing my best to make up for lost time now. I was describing it to my sister after I bought it, and she expressed incredulity that I didn’t already possess a pencil skirt in mustard yellow. So, clearly, I’m doing good work establishing my “brand.”
So this isn’t the world’s clearest picture, but it gives a sneak peek of my new, tax-refund funded boots. I love them. They’re a bit snug still in the top inch or so, but the leather is like buttah so things are going to get awesome soon.
Did you all survive the time change (those of you who have it)? Anyone else changed only those clocks that do it automatically?
