Fashion on Friday – October 17, 2014

Another eShakti dress. It’s so comfortable and fun to wear. It’s lined with a cotton lining which will be great for summer. The pattern is quite Fall-like, but the color is light and bright which makes it another great transitional dress. It was raining the day I wore this which is a bit unusual around these parts and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

My other issue with hats is just that it can sometimes feel a bit costumey to wear a hat. I try not to let what other people will think affect my choices too much though so I hope to wear more hats this Fall and Winter. October 2014 163 (2) October 2014 162 (2) October 2014 160 (2)

I wore one of my favorite vintage owl necklaces – he’s articulated so he moves a bit. I always feel like I have to add a disclaimer when I talk about my love of owls – I loved owls before it was cool to love owls! This was a necklace I picked up in a thrift store years ago. I shall not let the popularity of owls dissuade me of my love for them!

I’d like to talk about heels. I love shoes. I love all the wonderful varieties of shoes that exist. I love heels. I also have a closet full of shoes, particularly heels that I love, that I never wear. Some people can wear heels for long periods of time and not suffer too much. I am not one of those people. I do have some heels that I can wear all day as long as I’m not on my feet all day. In the interest of simplifying, I am going to try to wear every pair of shoes in my closet and if I can wear them all day and I love them, I will keep them. If I can’t, then they will be passed on to someone who will hopefully love them and wear them. I’ll have a few exceptions for shoes that I am willing to suffer wearing for special occasions, but they have to especially special. October 2014 150 (2)

These shoes – I’ve had good luck with wedges so I had high hopes for these shoes that I picked up at Goodwill. They’re denim as well which I thought would be great to be sort of casual, but still be well-heeled. I didn’t have too much walking to do on the day I wore these, but I did work at the school for a bit. Sadly, these lovely shoes will be making an exit from my closet. They just weren’t comfortable enough and when I went to pick the boys up from school at the end of the day, I was not wearing them. They’re so cute though!October 2014 155 October 2014 149 (2)

So if I’m not going to wear these heels, I’ll at least keep my very long earrings! I felt like I was wearing a necklace, they’re so long.

Challenge #6 Outfit #21

Don’t let the sunshine fool you – we had more snow this morning, it was gone by the time I took my pictures though. We’ll probably skip Spring & go straight to Summer – the joys of Central Oregon!

I have to say that I love hats, I have a lot of hats. However, I don’t wear my hats very often – I just forget, or if I’m at home, they tend to get in the way. That being said, I’m going to try to wear them more often. Because I love them.

I realised after I put this outfit together that there are a couple of items that are repeated – the shrug & the jeggings. I think it’s ok though because they are helping me use another item of clothing that I don’t wear much which is the whole point of this!

Outfit #21

Dress: Ross – shortened by me
Shrug: Torrid
Jeggings: Pure Energy
Shoes: Target

While I was out taking my photos, my youngest son decided to lock the backdoor. That was fun. I pounded on the door for ages until my 3 year old finally came & let me in. Slightly scary, but pretty funny.
