I’m playing catchup here on some things here. This outfit, let’s see, I wore it March 27th! Oops. It’s been a repeat outfit though because I really love the polka dot shirt I found at the Talbot’s outlet. Click for a larger view.
“and go and get yourself some cheap sunglasses…” I scratch my old sunglasses and needed some new. The kiosk mirrors were horrible so I was taking photos with my phone to get a better look.
Yeah the dresses are not working … was trying to find a dress for a wedding. I ended up wearing a skirt instead (it was a bajillion degrees, people were in all manner of dress.) It didn’t help that when I was trying on dresses I had been bitten by something (I think spider) and had a reaction that included mild systemic inflammation. I felt a good 10lbs heavier and poofy. :/
If this hadn’t been black I would have bought it. Perfect for hot weather, cute (cuter than in the photo) but not a wedding guest dress. Not in KY, not in the daytime.
Talbot’s outlet. Felt like a sausage in this.
Cute but too “fall”… also not what I was shopping for.
Moved on to shoes.
Cute but not quite. (Marshall’s)
Better but wanted a little darker… these are cute however and I might go back.
LOVED these navy nautical wedges but they got veto’d for a wedding. A little over the top. I was already wearing neon nail polish. TJ Maxx so close.
Then JACKPOT – Payless Shoes (again somehow)
Top:Riveira in saddle LOVE these sandals and the fact that they can be worn two ways.
I had a board meeting yesterday so I was aiming for business conservative without being completely boring. The shirt is a very light dusty rose which comes across more like a cream in the photos.

Simply Vera by Vera Wang black heels seen in my previous blog post here. I got a lot of comments on these. Lot’s of questions about whether or not I thought I was going to fall in them too because they’re so tall. 🙂 I wouldn’t want to wear them daily but they’re fine for a day with a little walking and a fair amount of sitting in between.
Talbot’s outlet dusty rose silk topseen in this previous post. I love how simple the draped strips of fabric at the neckline make the blouse just that little bit interesting.
Chico’s gray dress slacks. These are a great staple item for me. So much so that I bought a second pair when they were on sale. Long enough to wear with heels and short enough that somehow I can still wear flats without them puddling at my feet. I believe they are the “Smooth Stretch Flare Trouser Pant, Style: 570034128” which they don’t seem to have gray in at the moment.
So I went shopping today at the Talbot’s Outlet again.
I ended up with 4 tops which I think will be good spring additions to my wardrobe. I ended up taking photos of some of the other things I tried on. Click on the images below to enlarge and get descriptions.
