My mother doesn’t like wearing much brown; she says it makes her feel like a little brown wren. Having inherited her medium-brown hair, I sympathize— though neither of us are half so cute as a real wren.
There’s no competing with that.
Today, I submitted job applications and needed to look respectable without sweating to death.
Blurry blogger, blurry browns, blurry beige…
Yep. Little brown wren.
I wanted to add color to this outfit, truly. But my only colorful shoes are teal boots (too sweaty in this weather), and my only colorful belt is red and matches nothing. I tried a big aqua beaded necklace, but this beaded neckline prefers to stand alone. Thank goodness for the green purse. I want to own more colorful clothes/accessories, but I’m also trying to keep my wardrobe small and versatile. Tricky business.
Only after submitting the applications did I try tucking in the shirt:
Top – annabelle usa, second-hand
Skirt – Jones New York, second-hand
Bag – Tambourine by Dan W via Tuesday Morning
Earrings – Scarcely visible, so who cares where they came from?
Bracelet – second-hand
Practically Unseen Shoes – Melissa Zig Zags from karmaloop.com. Will review soon.
The top’s a departure for me; I don’t believe I own any other embellished necklines or waistbands. I’m very fond of elbow-length sleeves, however, so I gave it a try. May remove the cheap faux-brass beads, may grow accustomed to them.
I was afraid the skirt might look irreparably dated, but it seems to be playing nicely with newer garments.
Look, my bag matches the weeds!
Blurry again, but at least my feet show.
