Chocolate-brown dress w/full skirt that hits just below the knees
This belt in white/floral
gold & turquoise ring
silver owl pendant necklace (from a flea market in Germany, its my favorite)
floral flats

This evening I'll be wearing my stifling all-black work ensemble, so i wanted to contrast it with something comfy and cute. The weather is lovely today.

Black t-shirt
Chocolate brown slacks
black patent flats
big silver hoops

Not something I would normally wear, but I'm pregnant and my options are limited because I don't like buying maternity clothes.

I have a date tonight (belated Mother's Day gift) and I'll probably wear a black, green, and blue paisley summer dress and a black cardigan. Again, limited non-maternity options.

I'm also off to the gym (tho I only have to climb 2 sets of stairs up to my 3rd floor) so I'm wearing navy blue sweats, bright blue sports bra, grey thermal shirt with black skulls on it, whit socks, white/blue running shoes, the rings I never take off, my mp3 player and phone in a black arm band. Certain clothes, like sports bras, really do make me feel like working out more.

Right now, workout clothes.

Tonight we're actually going out *gasp* and I think it'll be dark wash trouser jeans, gray 3/4 sleeve top, gray flats and some cute jewelry.

I'm still in my pajamas: a gray t-shirt with this on it and black yoga pants. I am about to go work out in the same thing - yeah, I'm gross like that.

Last night, though, I actually wore real-people clothes to my boyfriend's Ph.D. graduation ceremony: a pinkish-purplish dress with a ruffle around the neckline, a black lace cropped blazer, black stilettos, and a tan trench coat (which I discovered has a weird stain on one side, after I had been wearing it for a good hour!).

On my way to a bachelorette party. Everyone else there will be from 10 to 30 years younger than me and will be all trendy and fashionable. I will look like I always do - vigoss jeans, blue sweater, black chunky loafers, black/blue purse, silver and blue sea glass jewelry. Costs me next to nothing, I'll be warm and comfy, and I'll still get compliments on my hair. So I'm cool with not spending fortunes to be trendy.

I'm very dressed up (for me). Max Mara smokey colored soft silky pants, coordinating turquoise/olive/smoke drapey tee, coordinating olive mesh short sleeve cardigan, silvery slipper type shoes, very pale pink Cole Haan purse, tiny fancy diamond earrings, pink tourmaline ring and makeup.

Meeting old boyfriend for lunch - unfortunately, he lives in the Philippines and only gets to visit on rare occasions. But I look good (if I say so myself - and I do)

Thank you S1onyou. (I actually don't know what your emoticon means but I've decided it's a compliment. You can tell I'm having a great day)

It means rock on, CP.

I think your outfit sounds great. You obviously have a great wardrobe, because every time you post about an outfit I'm left drooling.

In this instance it means "you ROCK".

You guys are making me laugh. I only post the good stuff. Most of the time I'm in sweat pant or jeans and t-shirt.

But I'm happy today - and glad for your comments. Whee!!!
