Anthropologie Eyeleted Paisley Button-Up
Anthro With-a-Twist Henley
Anthro Organic Blooms necklace
Gap trouser jeans
boots ? ? DSW

I scored both of these tops on sale this past week. I like how this is a relaxed-casual look but just a step above jeans/t. I foresee this button up becoming a regular layering piece.

The Power of Belting

Old Navy tshirt and belt
Ann Taylor Loft tank and cardigan
Anthropologie Hartley trousers

More theme dress up days this week. Today was twin day so a coworker and I got these t shirts from Old Navy on the cheap. It felt like a maternity shirt when I put it on, so I had to put my own spin on it by belting. It felt much more me once I controlled the volume.

Miss kitty has been very interested in my a.m. photo shoots. If she is not careful, I am going to start putting her in little outfits.

Anthropologie Liquid Bouquet tank
Anthro Abuzz cardi
Gap tencel skirt
gray tights ?
Naturalizer green wedges
necklace ??
cat- Sookie

Finally some success in picture taking! I'm particularly happy with how this outfit turned out today. Very drapey and flowy and comfy but still professional looking. I almost didn't keep this tank but I'm glad I did. It goes with a lot of different things!

Anthropologie Contrasting Elements tank
Anthro Field Game Cardigan
Gap Perfect Boot jeans
Naturalizer maryjanes
necklace ??

This tank has been getting a lot of play lately. Because the base pattern is navy and sort of an offwhite, it goes with about half my closet. I also like that it is a tshirt fabric but a somewhat more sophisticated cut, so it toes the line between casual and dressy. Also, I wanted to participate in anthroholic's themed reader outfits with this cardigan, and I like the way these two pieces look together.

Onto other topics. #1 my goofy picture smile. My dear departed grandmother always had a very strange smile in pics and the extended family used to tease her mercilessly. I am seeing the same trait more and more in myself. It is hard to have a genuine smile in pics. #2 but related, my goofy body positions in the pics I have been taking. I am having some issues posing myself in an attractive manner when using the self timer on my camera. I either have 19 chins or some other strange body parts that only seem to be visible on camera, like my right hip here that does not actually exist in reality.

OK. I feel better now!

Unseasonably warm weather- bare legs in October! I think I could easily add tights, boots, coat to transition this look.
