What I wore: Polka Dots & Mix N Match Neon nails

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 then there are the nails. I actually did a full post on the nails before but you can tell here that they really can work well with neutrals.

Odd N Ends

Neon and chevron nail polish

First attempt at chevron and neon nails.

"And go and get yourself some cheap sunglasses"

“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.

Blue dress Kohl's

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. :/

Black dress Talbot's Outlet

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.I feel like a sausage - talbot's outlet

Talbot’s outlet. Felt like a sausage in this.

burgundy shirt talbot's

Cute but too “fall”… also not what I was shopping for.

Moved on to shoes.

Brown wedges

 Cute but not quite. (Marshall’s)

Tan wedges

Better but wanted a little darker… these are cute however and I might go back.

Nautical wedges TJ Maxx

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)

LOVE these sandals and the fact that they can be worn two ways.

All three purchased, all three are Montego Bay Club brand.

And finally, what I wore to the wedding.

Business Outfit – dusty rose & gray


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.

Outfit details below. Click any image to enlarge.

Dusty rose silk Talbots top, Chico's gray slack, business outfit

I’m wearing:

  • 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 top seen 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.

Talbots Outlet Shopping (April 10 2012)

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.
