Dec 22nd, 30 for 30- Day 22

Boy it’s a frosty morning- but still no sign of snow, so I’m thinking we will not be having a white Christmas this year. Darn!

Today I’m wearing my black skinny pants with this cute animal print top and my grey grandpa cardigan.

I used to be afraid to wear animal prints like this during the day- thinking they were too dressy, or too wild for ‘everyday’ style. But then I decided- what the heck?

Wearing this tank makes me feel fun- and gives my outfit a little kick. I’m needing that right now…

I’ve also changed out my shoes. On the right I have on these awful black things. They make my feet look enormous, and do nothing for my style. It’s hard to see in the photo how bad they are, so I’ve included a picture below. In theory, they are sort of cute, right? Unfortunately, they don’t work with skinny pants.

Nice mud on the sole! Yuck!

Instead of the black shoes, I’m wearing my black boots- yes, I do wear these almost everyday (in the winter), but they are warm, comfy and stylish. Why mess with that?

The long sweater hides my butt- which is important when wearing pants these tight!

Oct 3rd, Walking the Dog

The vest adds a bit of edginess to this look.
This outfit is too plain, no personality is showing.

I have affectionately named this vest ‘the dog’ because of it’s shaggy hair- and for those of you who know me- this is the closest I’ll come to owning a dog!

Since I don’t have any client meetings today, I thought this might be a fun and edgy outfit. I’m showing on the right my original look- just the plain black v neck t shirt and jeans and boots. Nothing special. To bring some fun and personality into it- I threw on my furry vest and added a long necklace.  It’s what I call ‘rock star glam’. In my mind, if I were a rock star wife I’d wear stuff like this (although they would probably be wearing heels, and definitely wouldn’t be shopping at  Marshalls!).

I spoke of this last week, but in case you are new here- I like to dress in 3’s. So here I have shirt (1), vest (2) and necklace (3). I like the way the necklace pulls some color from the vest, and the length draws the eye down.

To me, it’s fun, different and very comfy! Perfect!

I found this vest at Marshalls. Gotta love that!
