Columns For Spring Fashion

I am a column. . .

They say you are what you think. Or is that you are what you eat?

Oh well which ever, today's look is all about column dressing where I wear all one colored top and bottom and then add a third piece in a different color. This is one of my favorite ways to dress because it always looks nice and it takes very little thought. I plan to style a white column and maybe a colored column here over the next few weeks just to play around with it. I just got the cutest white denim jacket that I can't wait to style and I think it will be cute on a colored column. 

 

For this look I am wearing 7 For All Mankind jeans with my DIY hem. I love this brand so much that I ordered a pair of black cropped raw hem for summer. I'm wearing a pretty sleeveless top that has a sheer overlay. I wish I had taken a closer picture of it although it is old it is a favorite. My third piece was a waffle knit cardigan in orange by Free People. Then I added my orange Tuckernuck earrings and tan wedge shoes. A neutral belt and tote completed this look. 

Its still gloomy here

But I keep acting like it's full on spring. What else are you gonna do?

I am staying really busy with work and home projects and I even got away for a day at the spa with my girl friends. I am sure I am going wake up soon to the sun shinning bright!

I am linking some of the same and other similar items in case you want to create your own look.

Fall Tones & Cardigan Style

MY OUTFIT

I am thrilled to add fall tones back into my wardrobe. I can almost hear the colors singing. Neutrals and browns look good enough to eat. We are still getting warm days here and there so for this warm day I wore a rich chocolate camisole with a neutral cardigan. I added a pair of skinny jeans and suede nude pumps. My black and brown tote was the perfect accent. For a little surprise element I wore a think leopard belt. This is close to a daily uniform for me for the next couple of seasons only changing out the camisole for long sleeve tops. Cardigans are very popular and it is so fun that they come in all lengths which gives them even more versatility. 

SMOKE FILLED skies ARE OVER FOR THIS SEASON

You can see the smoke in the air in the background of this picture. I'm happy to say that at the time of this post, it is raining like crazy and the smoke is gone for the season. I am a little shocked about how quickly it seems we are going from summer to winter as they are focasting snow already. Yikes! It will be short lived as next week is supposed to be back to our normal beautiful fall weather. Here's hoping!

How I Style Over The Knee Boots For Fall Fashion

My OUTFIT

A few of years ago when Over the Knee Boots starting popping up everywhere, I was sure I was too old to wear them. I let society whisper in my ear, no no, you can't wear those, you'll look like you're trying to be younger. But as with so many whispers in my ear, I ignored it and showed my husband a beautiful pair of Louise et Cie OTK boots that I loved and he got them for me for Christmas! I was so excited and the minute I put them on I loved them. The heck with what anyone thought! Over the next couple of years I added two more pairs. They are so versatile and absolutely a fun addition to my wardrobe! 

For this outfit I wore the second pair of OTK boots purchased, they are a rich caramel color and they can be scrunched down to below the knee for variation.  Right now I prefer over the knee. I wore them with a pair of pants in a copper color. My top is a fun cold shoulder in a blue that reminds me of stormy nights.  I wore a layered necklace and a choker and carried a tote bag. All I can say is, I love this outfit. The top made it comfortable for the still warm days we were having but I got to style the boots so it is a perfect transitional outfit. 

THERE'S SNOW IN THE MOUNTAINS

As I write this post I am enjoying a day in the mid 60s and sunny with a little wind. But the wind is blowing in an early winter storm. For the next week, it is only going to be in the mid 40s and Tuesday through Thursday the forecast predicts snow! It's crazy and way too early for snow. A first in my experience.  I think the next week it is supposed to warm up to the 50s and 60s so hopefully our fall isn't over. Meanwhile my husband has been stacking wood for all our fire places. Stay tuned for weather updates! Ha Ha!

Casual Friday

The outfit

I'll admit that everyday is casual day for me now that I no longer have to go in to an office each day. I sometimes miss that part of working at the University. But most of the time I am grateful for my peaceful, slow pace lifestyle. This outfit is about the best of the best in my casual repertoire. Relaxed jeans, soft black shirt, tan mules that slide off easily and a nice bag on standby if I need to run an errand. In this post I am showing my outfit with a couple of different bags. I'm wearing a new layered necklace that I love and new really big hoop earrings. Both will be on heavy rotation this fall I am thinking.

Thanks for stopping by!

Peace!
