Chartreuse & Lace

"It's looking like a limb torn off
Or altogether just taken apart
We're reeling through an endless fall
We are the ever-living ghost of what once was"
~Band of Horses "No One's Gonna Love You"

Date: October 25, 2010

Ensemble message:  I have a confession… I was a super lazy blogger for the past 4 days.  On Thursday, I was on a business trip for the Day Job, and Friday I took pictures but never got around to posting them.  I hope you’ll forgive me!

blouse: H&M ($40) ~ cardigan: Target ($15) ~ skirt: Zara ($35) ~ shoes: Steve Madden via Famous Footwear ($14) ~ earrings: boutique in Arizona ($7)

These pictures are from today (I’ll save last Friday’s for a literal rainy day), and as you can see in the photos, the weather was particularly soupy this morning.  Thick, dense fog wreaked havoc on all commutes, even my usually easy 20 minute drive.  The words “thick” and “soupy” remind me of pea soup, so I guess it’s appropriate that I wore a chartreuse cardigan :) 

But onto why I chose this outfit… It’s pretty warm today, so no need for pants or even tights.  And I had one important meeting today, so I wanted to feel confident (via a funky color combo) and comfortable (flats all the way!)  For some reason, the longer skirt, silk shirt + cardi, and ankle socks + brogues made me feel pretty gamine.  Then again, the real definition of “gamine” is a homeless girl or street urchin (true story).  So make of that what you will ;)
