I was just about to pack this shell away until spring, after the big fail with the turtleneck. But encouragement from commenters prompted me to give it another go (although I haven't had time to shop for any cowl necks yet):
Hubby's comment this morning: "it would look better without the vest". Me: "but the main point is to see if I can make this (brown) top work. Besides, this (blue) shirt needs to be taken in and I don't have time to iron another." But he didn't see it with the jacket on.
One of our secretaries took these, and she likes the combo. So far, 1 yay, 1 nay....
I have no idea why the colors aren't photographing true. These match, I swear:
I bet this outfit would be even better if I get the matching necklace back from Snookums! I'll have to FB her stat.
Shirt: Freeda's castoff Eddie Bauer
Shell: Croft and Barrow via Goodwill
Earrings: made by my girl Snookums

FYI: I was doing this entire blog from my Android phone, snatching moments out of my busy life for quick photos. But I hate auto-correct with a purple passion, so now I'm using the computer for most of the work. I am still using my phone for the photos, though. My photo sizes may be erratic, and the quality isn't stellar. I am not a professional blogger, and do not have time for lots of scenic poses with a great camera. I don't even own a great camera! However, I DO appreciate your continued feedback, even in the absence of photographic artistry.
DJ/Radio Producer-turned-Lawyer attempts to dress like a grown-up. Sometimes I comically fail. And I occasionally post fun stuff, like music videos, book-club reviews, or photos of beauty or oddity.
