Great Minds Don't Move In Straight Lines...Neither Do I...

Worn to work Monday, June 27

Top-Banana Republic/Skirt-Old Navy/Belt-H&M/Shoes-DV for Target/Jewelry-DIY, NY street vendor, Target

The start of another week and I am tired already...I just cannot grasp the fact that it is almost July...almost my is starting to traumatize me that I am going to be that old...ahhhh!

I decided to starting smiling in my photos...instead of the usual stare or look to the side.  When I smile, my eyes get kind of squinty and you can see all the lines in my face...but I guess they are lines of experience, life and emotion.

I really liked how this outfit turned out.  I usually wear this skirt with a solid top, but I thought I would throw caution to the wind and pair it with a lace, I am adventurous... (sarcasm).  I have been really loving mixing black and brown I mixed the lace top with the rugged brown belt. Then I loaded on the jewelry like Hamasa hand necklace dangly earrings and piles o' bracelets... one of them is a preview of this weeks Arts and Crafts Wednesday

Today was the first day at camp for the boys...first time ever for Alex.  He was a little nervous at first, but after I sat down with him and started to play with the play dough, he relaxed and said "bye mommy...go to work". Jack didn't even look back...just went in, found a car and started playing.

What a great mix. I have never been so bold as to mix black & brown... maybe I'll try black & cognac soon - baby steps! Oh, and you look good smiling!

I'm definitely a fan of smiling in pictures! And black and brown is one of my favorite color combos (and it used to be one of my biggest pet peeves, haha)

You look great, I love the black and brown!

I can't believe he told you to go to work. I have a feeling my daughter is going to be like that too!

I think that the lace top is a nice touch. It is more interesting to the eye than a solid shirt.

I can't STOP smiling in pictures. I try to look serious and arty and it's a disaster! :)

I've been feeling black and brown lately too. I think it looks sophisticated when done right - like you did here!

Smiling is the absolute best! When I'm editing my pictures I always migrate to the happy looking ones (even if they do have one or two more crows feet than I'd like the general public to know about).

Tara said...

Well, isn't Alex just the stylish one today :)

I think this outfit is one of my favorites...I just love how everything works together! And yes, yes, yes on the smiling. I just can't pull of a non-smiling picture for some reason. I try to look thoughtful or something, and I end up looking drunk or half asleep. It's odd...

I hear you on the birthday girl! Where does the time go? You look great - and confident with that smile!

the lace top works so well with that skirt! i tend to get in a similar rut with some patterned pieces...thinking that they can only be paired with solid colors, so it's great that you broke free!

thanks for reminding me that I have that
Seriously bought it last summer and kind of forgot about the flouncy feel of it, no?
You look the mix of black and brown.
