Coming On

Posted by writergrll. Comment (0).

Wednesday was a bummer type of day.  First, the weather was doing something crazy and where I live we had snow flurries/sleet for part of the day.  I had my volunteer shift in the morning but I think that the weather scared everyone away.  We didn’t have any patrons for any of the 3 guided tours.  Plus, the 100-year old house was chilly!

After my volunteer shift I came home and picked out my outfit for school.  I needed to wear a skirt even though I just wanted to wear my pajamas!  I felt like I was creating a Fall or Winter outfit.  I actually pulled out my black tights and black riding boots.  Oh, and a sweater!  This sweater is technically a holiday sweater, but I think that “JOY” is a sentiment that can be felt or wished for anytime.  And, the sweater is a thin material so it’s great for cool, but not cold, weather.

I thought that the metallic thread in the word joy played off the gold in the skirt nicely.  I also liked that it brought some lightness to the overall outfit—I do have my entire lower half swathed in black.  I had tried this with a black velvet shell and a red boyfriend cardigan but it just didn’t look right.  I also tried it with a few other tops, but to no avail.  And then I was running out of time so I had to go with the look that I created.  A bronze gold skinny belt finished off my look.
