There are a few days where my schedule really determines my outfit. Today, I had a very full (and very dull) schedule of errands to accomplish, which involved a LOT of walking. That ruled out any shoes with a serious heel. Sometimes, I can’t bring myself to wear a sneaker… I just can’t. Yes, Athleisure has made it acceptable and even fashionable to wear sneakers with everything from jeans to a slip dress, but in the words of Johnny Cash, ‘No, no, no, it ain’t me, babe.” So, for today’s dressed down day, I wore these silver glitter boots that I bought a few summers ago. Since it is the last few days of cold weather, I thought I’d wheel out my wool cape (worn before here) one last time before packing it away until next autumn. Due to a particularly bad hair day, I grabbed a cashmere beanie to hide the evidence. A cozy grey cashmere sweater, black trousers, and I was off!
To add some ‘me’ to an off-duty outfit where sparkling statement jewellery doesn’t quite work, I wore this fox earring and necklace set. Anyone who knows me in real life knows I am OBSESSED with foxes. Beyond obsessed, probably. My son (who has zero interest in foxes) has had to endure a fox bedroom theme and endless children’s clothes all emblazoned with various foxes motifs. So, of course, I think these sterling silver foxes are absolutely gorgeous.
I never feel fully dressed without something sparkly, so I relied on my Lizzy O wrap bracelets for shine. Speaking of shine I added this very functional dove grey tote bag which has a motto I can totally appreciate. Even on this, the dullest and most tedious of days, I have a very visible reminder to Shine Bright!
