Indulge me for a second, will you?
I never talk about fashion here, and certainly don't claim to be a fashionista by any means. Especially today. Do you ever look down at your outfit and think "what in the heck am I wearing?!" I had one of those moments today, which makes J.Crew's "new items added to the final sale!" e-mail especially tempting. Just for kicks here's what I wish I were putting in my shopping bag.
I sent half of my sweater drawer to the Goodwill this year and now it's a little bare. I love a good grandpa-slash-librarian sweater, especially when paired with a frilly top and pearls.
I have this skirt in black and have to agree, it is the perfect pencil skirt. Of course now I think I need it in 'cinnamon stick,' too. The socks with booties? Not so much.
I love simple dresses and try to save them for days when I can't come up with a complete outfit (today should have been a dress day!). Add black tights and black heels and done!
Part of my problem is that I never just wear a shirt. Seriously. I almost always have two items on top (I just realized this recently). Shirt and cardigan, shirt and vest, shirt and light jacket, shirt and vest and jacket -- I just can't help it, I love to layer. Off the top of my head I can think of at least five different ways I could wear this beautiful plum top (and this one, too). Any winter sale items tempting you these days?
