Monday Greys.

 Monday Greys for you today, ehh? Actually at first glance it looks like this mostly monochromatic outfit doesn't have much color but there are actually a total of 5 colors here: grey (pants), olive (tee), pale blue (jacket), tan/nude (wedges) and pops of turquoise (wallet and bracelet). With the exception of the wedge sandals which I purchased earlier in the Spring, this year, all the other pieces have been in my closet for years. But flowy palazzo pants are very much IN this year as are bomber jackets. This very light wash blue denim bomber jacket is the cutest. I have owned/own several denim jackets from Gap through the years, and loved every single one of them.

 I wore this outfit to work last Monday. When I leave in the mornings now is quite chilly (actually today will be cool all day, as it was Saturday and Sunday), so a jacket is a necessary layer. I did carry my lap-top bag with me but rather than that, all I carried was this large wallet instead of a clutch. It fit my money, cards, some change, a lipgloss and even my phone. I have had this leather turquoise piece for years. It has the "BB" logo in silver (by Bebe) and I even have the large matching tote. In one of my hands I have a gray leather cuff with silver studs and rhinestones, purchased at an art show as a birthday present to myself in May. In the other hand I have a little beaded stretchy turquoise bracelet which paired well with the bold aqua cocktail ring. And my mini oval-shaped gray sunglasses have a bright silver metallic sheen to them. And there is texture in that top: the front is 100% silk, while the sleeves and the back are in the softest cotton jersey. What do you think of this outfit? Have you ever paired olive with grey, pale blue and tan together?

Yesterday, I reminisced about the 15th anniversary of September 11 and wrote this emotional post. Check it out and let me know what you think. And over the weekend I shared some wishful shopping.
I have a very special post tomorrow collaborating with a blogger friend. The post will be live at 6.00 AM Eastern time. =)
