Today, the day before Thanksgiving vacation, I decided to think outside of the box and come up with a more creative outfit.
I no sooner set my things down to get a cup of coffee at the office and I was already getting compliments! I love where I work because people notice new a different things and they always are willing to shell out a compliment, when it's due.
So, my outfit isn't really anything special, except for a few accent pieces.
Here's the look:
Jeans: Ann Taylor Loft
Top: (orange) Ann Taylor Loft, (white) Target
Cowl Neck: Pam Logan, a crafty lady at a craft show
Poesy Pin: Erin @ Four Munkees
Boots: Nine West
I've rolled my skinnier legged jeans from Ann Taylor Loft over top of my tall brown boots. This look, my husband would say makes me look like a pirate but I thought it was cute so I just went with it.
This morning when piecing this outfit together, I thought with the cowl neck being a little bit of an off-white color and the pin having a bit of orange in it I needed something that would tie it all together and not clash. So I went with the orange over the white and then added the two fabulous accents.
Here's a closer look:
The cowl neck was a STEAL from Pam. She's just a handy lady that can crochet like a champ! She sells these cowl necks for $5.00 a piece! I'm not kidding! If you look them up on etsy, they are anywhere from $30 to $75+ dollars! It's nuts! I almost bought some from etsy before I met Pam. I'm going to work with Pam to make a few Christmas gifts because these things are just so darn handy and so pretty!! I need a few more colors myself.
The Posey Pin, as I'm calling it... is from my friend Erin at Four Munkees. She's just got that look that ALWAYS is so cute! She was at a local artisan show recently where I finally got to witness her craftiness in person! It was great! She had little smock like dresses for little girls, owls, rings, earrings, bracelets, poesy pins, munkees and seek and find bag. So many cute things. I tried very hard to not buy one of each but what I did buy, I'm loving. My posey pin is just the perfect accent for many different outfits and I'm very happy that I made that purchase.
Anyway, that's my outfit for today. Hope you enjoyed it.
Have a happy, healthy and safe turkey day!!
