Fashionistas, happy HuMp dAy!
Oh, yes it’s true…”My Fashion Haus” is open again. Joining up with the other contributors at The Blended Blog for “New Year Styled” and my buds Whitney and Carrie for “Create 28”. Been getting dressed every single day since the fashion haus last opened the first of the month. But can’t seem to get around to posting pics. I feel kind of silly when I do ‘style’ or ‘fashion’ posts because I don’t look at the way I dress as much more than just than putting on some clothes everyday.
Here are some of the clothes I have put on recently.
“Create 28”: Patterned Pants
Today’s “Create 28” prompt was patterned pants. I had set this outfit toward the front of my closet a few weeks ago so I would wear it. Not necessarily for this prompt, but just because I am trying to wear some of the clothes that don’t make it out of the closet much.
Coming to you straight from the potty…well, bathroom. The colors of this outfit are probably most accurate in this picture.
Patterned pants in gray, black and a little teal blue. The top is a bluish-gray with black trim and the cardi is navy. All three pieces are from Banana Republic several springs ago.
Here are a couple more looks in brighter lighting but the colors look off.
Well, maybe not. These colors are just weird. But my pants ARE patterned, by golly!
“New Year Styled”: Old Pants
This next outfit was one my Prince C. liked. You can tell because he agreed to take my pic without a fuss. My pants are old – no, make that vintage Loft straight leg khakis. Express black utility blouse, Walmart leopard scarf, Kohl’s faux leather bomber.
Not really ‘feeling’ this look myself. What do you think?
Hodge-Podge of Other Outfits
These next pictures are work wear looks I wore to sub in the library this month. None of these pieces are new. Kind of shopping my closet and trying to stay out of the stores these days.
Pink blouse from Banana Republic, gray jeans from Loft Outlet, faux fur from Charming Charlie, gray booties from DSW.
Burgundy boyfriend cardi, floral blouse, mauve jeans from Loft Outlet, burgundy booties from Payless.
Berry cardi and navy and white floral blouse from Loft Outlet, Merona at Target blue skirt, can’t see my shoes or remember them!
Merona at Target cowl neck tunic, Wit-n-Wisdom jeans, gray booties from DSW.
SIA Look: Style Imitating Art
Jen at Librarian for Life and Style does this really cool post called SIA: Style Imitating Art. I have joined her and a group of her friends on several occasions for this style feature. When I saw the art prompt for the most recent SIA, I knew I wanted to participate again. But time got away from me and I forgot to send Jen my pics. For this round, we were using the 1922 Georgia O’Keeffe painting called “Pond in the Woods”.
Here’s Jen with her interpretation of that painting seen in the middle photo.
And here’s what I put together but forgot to share.
Black patterned pants from Loft, gray polka dot tunic from Loft Outlet, gifted floral scarf from Loft, black pumps from Kohl’s.
Not sure why my right cheek looks like it has a pleat starched and ironed into it. Allergies? Sinus issues? Impending 59th birthday?
My Personal Favorite
While I like getting dressed up, wearing skirts or dress pants and heels, I also love my jeans, tees and tennies. We celebrated the 100th day at school about a week ago and this was the tee shirt everyone wore that day.
Casual spirit Fridays are the best.
So there you have it…a plethora of outfits for February. A virtual cornucopia. A profusion. An overabundance. Can you tell I am using the online thesaurus here?
My FitBit says it’s time for bed. So off I go. Wishing you a fashionable week’s end. And thankful that you took a few moments to join me in “My Fashion Haus” today.
Hugs and kisses,
