Strike a pose...

...or don't. Please.

outfit of the day

Now I can appreciate what those intrepid fashion bloggers have to go through. At the end of the day, the last thing in the world you feel like doing is posing for a photograph. I ended up grabbing a prop, because my first effort today looked identical to the one I did for July 4th. I can see where this would work for others, but didn't care for the deranged short Barbie effect I got?

turtleneck: Eddie Bauer--wears surprisingly well (I've washed and worn it many times over two years)
cardigan: J.Crew Jackie in Wild Mushroom
skirt: gift from husband
shoes: Cydwoq Category

Because the weather's been so nutty lately--cold, but San-Francisco-Bay-Area-summer-cold, not actual-autumn-cold--I thought I'd play with the idea of wearing fall colors in lighter weights. Were it in fact fall, I'd have worn the same turtleneck and skirt with a wool sweater, wool tights, and boots. Here I have the cotton Jackie, cotton tights, and shoes.

I'll be honest, I'd rather have worn this with a different brown sweater. I like Wild Mushroom Jackie but hanker for a more masculine style cardigan in a deeper brown. It's no great rush buying it...likely there will be better choices in, well, autumn.
