It's that time of year again, when The Absent-Minded Professor and The Teen head back to school, and I have to get my own outfit pics of my super
I set my camera on my desk, and cut myself off. Yes, I think my legs really are that white...
Intriguing Threads skirt ~ thrifted last year
Tarhari tee ~ old, probably Marshalls
Maripe pumps ~ thrifted
The Limited Obi belt ~ in the $1 range this spring when I was handed a $10 cash coupon
But the Internet is a wonderful place, and I did find some more straightforward tips for grabbing those tough low light and indoor shots that are all a working mom with a seven-minute lunch hour has time for, including using a self-timer (buy a wireless remote, will order this week), opening the aperture wider, and increasing the ISO (which I can now decrease due to blinding y'all with my white legs). Yeah, I don't know what that means, either.
ZOA cardigan too long neglected in my closet. It is gathered like a peplum in back.
Bangle watch ~ old, Steinmart probably
Stretch ring ~ Tuesday Morning, I think
Black beads necklace ~ Jada's Jewels, love my daily email
So I don't want to worry about my clothes. I realized there is nothing wrong with all the basic, conservative gray and black items I have in my closet, and they probably do look better on me than many of the last year's trends, because well, let's face facts, I'm short, and lots of clothes and patterns swamp me. This might be the week of the Most Basic Separates Ever.
When your life gets a little crazy, what are your go-to clothes for every day living? (Or working?)
P.S. I'm linking up to Visible Monday at Not Yet Dead Style and Monday Mingle at Bon Bon Rose Girls this week.
