WIW shortie does volume over volume

Following Deborah's new silhouette yesterday, I thought I would try my own version of volume over volume. These are the pants I haven't shortened yet. I think I am going to take in just a bit in the front of my foot, not all the way around. Vince Camuto Rack pants, Angie recommended gianetta blouse, target wedges (gold bag not pictured).


WIW my heart will always belong to the mini

I know midi's are taking over this year but at least on me, my heart will always belong to the mini. This is the express overlapping stripes skirt. It feels so 80's, like coming home to find an old friend who hasn't changed a bit. I'm pretty sure the length of the skirt would be obscene on a normal height person but it feels just right on me. Worn with my nordie's bp cardi, target polka dot scarf, bandolino heeled boots and Dotty for the final graphic touch.

Vote with your heart please, no hard feelings!

Yay: length is short but fine on me
Nay: too short for work, possibly dated length


WIW something old and something new

This is a combination I've been wearing a lot lately. I'm really enjoying the look of a short cropped jacket over a longer tunic. This is the first time I'm wearing the caramel jacket with matisse booties, even though this is just the pairing I had in mind when I bought the jacket. The pants are new from my mini meetup with Janet at the Rack in Annapolis. They are a new shape for me, not too wide and not skinnies. I thought they'd be a nice change for work. Also new here is another target boys button down shirt in white. Hope you like, suggestions happily accepted! Have a great day!!

WIW nude boots meet animal dress

This is a YLF outfit from head to toe. You all helped me pick out the dress as part of my fall dress overhaul and the nude boots are a treasured memento of my first YLF meetup in NYC. On this blog anniversary, I dedicate my WIW to this warm, loving, endlessly inspiring and creative community. I am honored to be a part of it. Have a great day everyone!

Two by two

I'm happy I got to spend some quality time in my closet this weekend. I feel like I have a better handle on what I have and what I am looking for this spring.

I realized that I have duplicates of almost all of my blouses. I have one light and airy and the other shorter and more fitted of the following: dark with white polka dots, animal, gingham and chambray. Is that crazy?! All of them are in heavy rotation these days. I reach for them on casual work days, MOTG and date nights. Should I look for more variety in my wardrobe? I like having fit options but it seems like I could either minimize my wardrobe by not having duplicates or I could use more color options.
