Ingunn made a February calendar to humor me (because I liked her January one so much). I'm hoping that she's using it too, and I'm not just mooching off her labor :)
Anyway, this week I took most of the calendar day challenges, and this is what I wore, in reverse order due to the pictures loading that way:
#1 skirted leggings I made these myself (just cut a black tee shirt and sewed it to fleece-lined leggings) so that I could have the width and length of skirt I wanted. I followed Angie's ensemble by wearing it with a plaid shirt and leather jacket. I've been wanting to try these tall boots with my new Birkenstock insoles, and this outfit seemed like a suitable time to do so. They were comfy for 4-5 hours, but not all day :( When I stopped by my in-laws in the evening, my mother-in-law said "You work from home and you dress like that"? I'm not sure it was a compliment :)
#2 white shirt or blue without denim It's not really a white shirt, but this white jacket was feeling lonely in my closet, and asking to be worn, so I accommodated it. My blue-without-denim the day before (see #3) had been such a failure that I thought I should make another attempt. I liked this version much better. But I suspect I would have liked it even more with blue jeans....
#3 blue without denim was difficult for me - the "I wear jeans almost every day" girl. I tried going for a column of blue, with a lighter blue top, but felt smurfy. So I put on a pull-over that I thought would compliment the brightness of the cobalt cords. I felt garishly bright. Putting my gray sweater over it made it warm and wearable. But the only reason I wore it all day was because I was too lazy and busy to change. The next day was a bit more successful (see #2).
#4 stripes I usually wear this tee shirt as pajamas, but thought that a "stripes" day would be a good time to wear it "for real". And I ended up really liking the outfit. This will probably get repeated.
Today I wore Angie's ensemble from this morning, so that'll get a different thread.
Thanks for any comments or suggestions for improvement!
