Not Going Out Like That



I was having trouble coming up with a title for this post, hence watchamakalit. This skirt is pretty ancient, from the days when I was addicted to Club Monaco. I am happy that their current in-store collection seems to be striking the colorful retro vibe that I always loved about CM.

I am also thrilled that cobalt blue seems to be a color that is wearable ALL year. I only own a few items in this color but they seem to get a lot of wear. These shoes are bright, fun and comfortable for a heel of this height. They have previously been seen here and here.

And this is the same garage gate where I had the run in with the “how’ya doing” dog walker. This time – no run ins. Phew !

Shoes – Jessica Simpson. Tank & Cardigan – Zara. Skirt – Club Monaco, so old.

  7. Nice! Ok tell the truth, are the shoes comfortable? I have heard that the Jessica Simpson shoes are comfortable but have yet to try them.

    P.S. Thanks for all of your lovely comments on my site! I always love meeting new people, so you better bet I will be following you back!

  9. That skirt is lovely! I love it when pieces that you’ve had forever continue to be relevant. This always makes me feel like an expert shopper. 😉 And I am so into to cobalt shoes that I’m loving so much right now? Cobalt isn’t a color I buy a lot of in terms of shirts or pants – but I’m absolutely obsessed with cobalt shoes. Love yours!

    • Thanks Ruby. Shoes are Jessica Simpson and I got them at Loehmann’s but I know they were previously on Zappos. If you go to one the other posts where I wore them, there is a link to the exact pair on Zappos.
