|I LOVE Colors: Feeling comfy-cozy in a a green, mustard yellow, black and brown ensemble.
First off: this outfit is much cuter in person. It didn't photograph very well. When I started shooting, one of my neighbors walked past me with his dog. While Princess-the-Puppy scampered about, said neighbor thought he'd show his support by watching me take photos of myself. Uh, not very comfortable, but since I couldn't shoo him away, I tried to pose anyway. I was so self-conscious especially after some "encouragement," in the way of him telling me I was doing a sexy pose, LOL. I know he meant well, but...uh, awkward! So these are the best of the lot, and if you look closely I'm sure you can see the look of discomfort in my expression.
The outfit on the other hand was total comfort: big slouchy jeans shorts layered over a pair of mustard yellow tights (you can get a pair like mine over at We Love Colors Inc., click here to shop) with brown suede flats to shuffle around in. The T-shirt is probably an antique by now, an ancient Target Tee bought on clearance in the last century, and now on the verge of falling apart. In better shape is my favorite cashmere cardigan, an old standby purchased from J. Crew, back in the day. Super soft and warm- I feel that wearing a 2-ply cashmere sweater is the sartorial equivalent of sipping a cup of hot cocoa: toasty goodness! And I LOVE this color of yellow! It seems to add happiness to grey days like the ones I'm having right now in Sacramento. The necklace is from The Clothes Horse, my first give-away prize! I love the wooden heart with the black leather over it. Very simple and easy to wear! The jacket is a recent score at a yard sale: a vintage moss green corduroy jacket that is so easy to wear. I am so into this down-to-earth color of green which is a nice change from my recent diet of black & white prints. What do you think?
