Today, I’m so excited to be co-hosting the Fabulous Friday link-up with Jennie from A Pocketful of Polka Dots, one of my favorite style bloggers! (I’ve been a reader of her blog for a long time — check my Blog Love roll.) Scroll down to the end of this outfit post for all the link-up details!
But first, a bit about my outfit, which is all about the accessories. I layered my black knit sleeveless dress over a black knit tee and black opaque tights in order to have a
blank, er, black canvas for my geometric-print scarf and burgundy booties. I felt great in this outfit!
This gorgeous scarf, with its black, burgundy, and bits of gold threading, was a gift from my husband, Sam, when he took a college trip to Turkey. My wine-colored lipstick played off both my scarf and my ankle booties.
And since the print on the scarf is geometric, I also went with my geometric bronze earrings, a gift from my good friend and fellow librarian Stephanie.
What goes into choosing photos for an outfit post? It’s mostly about choosing photos that highlight the outfit or details of the outfit (that’s the point of a style blog, right?!). But sometimes, I choose a photo for a purely arbitrary reason, like because I like the way my hair looks in that particular photo. See examples below. 😉
Weather: Drizzly and cold
Where: Work day with meetings and Reference Desk duty
- Scarf: From Turkey, decades old
- Dress: eShakti, old
- Turtleneck: Walmart, super old
- Booties: Naturalizer, this past fall
- Earrings: Gift from my friend Stephanie
- Lipstick: Milani, this winter
Fabulous Friday link-up
And now, time for the Fabulous Friday link-up, hosted by the always fabulous Jennie from A Pocketful of Polka Dots. That’s right — two Jens unite for an ultra-Fabulous Friday! 😀
Meet your host for Fabulous Friday, Jennie of A Pocketful of Polka Dots.
∼ Hey y’all, I’m Jennie and I am a 47-year-old frugal fashionista! I am mom to two wonderful (and handsome!) sons and one very spoiled Pomeranian. After spending most of my life in black and boring clothes, I now enjoy trying new trends, am a confessed shoeaholic, believe life is too short for boring hair, and never met a polka dot I didn’t like. I am also an avid photographer, reader of Jane Austen, Paleo/Primal enthusiast, and lover of DIY. You can follow me here ∼
Each week, both Jennie and that week’s co-host choose a personal favorite outfit from last week’s link-up. My favorite this past week was from Cindy, aka PRIIINCESSS from the I Am Priiincesss blog, who looks so fabulous and fresh in her “little white dress.”
