Oldie but a goodie

OOTD April 9 2010

Outfit Details:

sweater - Banana Republic, skirt - Old Navy, shoes - Steve Madden

This used to be one of my staple outfits from about 5-6 years ago. Most of my sweaters from this era of my life hit me at a similar place -- right at the top of the hip -- which is great for skirts. It's also a nice option to have in my closet since most sweaters and tops hit at mid-hip or longer these days. Yet another argument I have (yes, I'm talking to you DH) for having a well stocked closet.

A little bling bling would make this outfit much more interesting. But when I was getting dressed this morning, Maya was still fast asleep (she made her way into our bed midway through the night) and I didn't want my rustling through my jewelry box to wake her up.

What a gorgeous dress. There are not nearly enough navy blue dresses in life.

This is a great staple outfit, and could be accessorized in many different ways, which is fantastic. I agree that different shapes and lengths are important to have. There are so many mornings when I have imagined an outfit in my head only to find that things don't match up right and look weird!

I love purple and brown together--great staple--and this skirt hits you at the exact great part of your leg. Plus I am coveting your shoes. And enjoying your blog.

Hi! I've just spent lots of time browsing your blog at leisure as my little guy naps (I should honestly be doing several other things but oh well.:) and I really enjoy it! I love your outfits and I also really enjoy the bits you include about your daughter! Lovely writing! I looked for an option to follow so I can check in regularly but I can also just copy the link!:)
Have a lovely day!
