WIW the state of fashion for me today

I love today's outfit because it feels totally me and it represents how I want to dress and how I want to present myself to the world at this moment. Dotty is having a pattern mixing day out with kitty wedges. The dress is slim but not tight. I feel ok without a waist cinching belt because there's already enough going on with the bag, shoes and leggings, and the cropped jacket emphasizing my waist. Minimal accessories feel just right today. I am wearing only my mk watch from the last NAS and my wedding ring. Tweaks and critiques gladly accepted, I always learn so much when I post wiw's here.

    I LOVE this outfit too! Perfect.

  • Transcona Shannon replied 6 years ago

    Wow Rita - there is no tweaking required. This is PERFECTION! You are right that the cropped jacket accentuates your tiny waist, love the leggings under the dress and the pattern mixing of Dotty and your wedges is so lux. You really look fabulous - no wonder you like this outfit!

    Those wedges are gorgeous BTW - what kind are they, if you don't mind me asking?

  • Jonesy replied 6 years ago

    You and Dotty make such a beautiful, stylish couple! I love the effortless chic of this outfit.

  • Suz replied 6 years ago

    WOW. That is drop dead gorgeous on you, Rita. Love.

    No wonder you feel good. You are looking good!

    And, like Shannon, I am eager to know the name of your shoes!

    Love Dotty, too. Sigh...

    Shannon, they are the Halogen Allie wedges that I posted a while ago. They certainly aren't my most comfortable shoes with their 4" heel, but I've already walked a few miles in them today and I am not crying yet. If I didn't fall so hard for them at first sight, I would probably keep looking for a more comfortable pair.... but what can I say, sometimes the heart wins...

    Cute outfit! The cropped jacket looks great with the dress and leggings.

    PS: I'm seriously thinking of having an affair with your dotty (shhhh, don't tell anyone)

  • Emily replied 6 years ago

    Celia, Endless is having a 20% off sale on dotty right now, free international shipping too! You should really meet her in person. She is so sweet!!! I am getting the matching wallet.

  • celia replied 6 years ago

    Oh Rita, you are killing my budget(She says while opening another tab to write Endless)
    Thank you for the tip.

  • NDMom replied 6 years ago

    Rita, you look just wonderful! I am glad that you are getting such rave reviews as I am wearing a similiar outfit as I type. I never can get pics cuz no one is ever around to take one for me and the ones I take never turn out.

    Love your stylish look though! Doesn't it feel great when your outfit feels right!

  • Transcona Shannon replied 6 years ago

  • rae replied 6 years ago

    Love this! Dotty is so pretty with denim and gray. I also really get a sense of "you" from this outfit, which is what it's all about IMO.

  • kellygirl replied 6 years ago

    Effortlessly stylish! You look fab, Rita. I love everything about this!

  • Sarah A replied 6 years ago

    Love the layering with the leggings dress and jacket! Dots bag -- wonderful! (i need another bag like a need a hole in the head right!) Totally incredible!

  • Janet replied 6 years ago

    Love it! it is so very you!

  • Makrame replied 6 years ago

    This is great! The cropped jacket is just perfect - exactly the right length and fit.

  • christieanne replied 6 years ago

    I can see why you feel great in today's outfit - because you should! All the pieces are working in harmony and no need for anything more. Also your hairstyle is adding to the greatness - sort of no nonsense but with a soft wavy side :) Love the whole look.

  • Ginny replied 6 years ago

    Wow, you keep on getting better and better, I love this!!!!

  • qfbrenda replied 6 years ago

    Perfect! I love Dotty... she's a great addition to your wardrobe. I think I need to copy the "sweater dress + denim jacket" idea.

  • Mochi replied 6 years ago

    Come on, you knew you were hitting it out of the park with this super outfit. Just fabulous in every way. Belt would have been overkill. Your instincts are perfect.

  • Kari replied 6 years ago

    I think this is my favorite outfit I've seen on you to date. Simply perfect!
