How I wore it: Tuesday twofer

Hi, all! Wow, it's crazy how time gets away from me. Too bad a full-time job gets in the way of blogging, n'est-ce pas? Anyway, thanks for your kind words on my last post. It's a new week and I'm feeling better about life in general. Let's hope that it all lasts...

Anyway, yesterday's (Monday's) outfit was one I'd had in mind for quite a while and finally realized because the temperatures were perfect for it. There's still no real need for tights, but boots come in quite handy, and a cardigan was pretty necessary for the outdoors. It's my olive/taupe/grey-brown dress to the rescue!

I paired it with my super-beloved cognac Steve Madden boots (which I honestly can't remember wearing after March, but I'm sure I did at some point) and a bottle green cardigan to give a sort of autumn effect. To add to the autumnal palette, I added my Greek carnelian jewelry - and since I wanted al the jewelry bad-ass juju possible, I wore my Cycladic ring:

Caught in the act of adjusting my glasses. PRETENTIOUS.

I was quite happy with how the look turned out and, of course, to wear those boots. On Saturday, while strolling the streets of downtown Boston, I realized that almost every girl (and literally, their mother) was wearing tall boots - with tights, without tights, with dresses, with shorts, with leggings... boots. It's the time of the season, people, and I, for one, couldn't be happier.

In continuing with the boot theme today (Tuesday), I decided to go comfy with my new ponte pants (which I wore all weekend, too) and my grey Fryes, which is - so far - my go-to pair with these pants. But I paired it with something a little different from the last time:

Trying to artistically cover the big ol' gauze + cotton ball on my left arm from having my blood drawn today

On Sunday, my husband and I hung out with a friend who just had her second (and, she says, last) baby. She gave us about seven or eight bags of baby clothes, some of which contained a few nice maternity garments as well. I think this green number might really be a dress, but I wore and considered it as a tunic (or as a shortish dress with leggings) for today. I really enjoyed it.

And that's all on my end, folks! I was actively missing blogging, so I'm glad I could come through with a few looks for you. So tell me - what's been going on with you?

  1. I love that olive dress and am now waffling with the idea if I should go get one for myself. Then again I wouldn't want to be all matchy matchy to you because that would make me seem creepier than I am (which I promise is only mildly)

    Glad you've been feeling better!!

  2. That first outfit is so full of win! I may be biased, though, due to my love of cognac boots. I'm so glad that it's boot season!

  3. Cassy, I would be super-flattered rather than creeped out, for reals. :) I've been finding the dress nice and versatile, myself...

    Thanks, Cynthia!

    Thanks, Raquelita! I get pretty excited also whenever cognac boots make an appearance...

  4. I love the warm neutrals you're working here. Looking great, C&B!
