Tuesday Blues

Dearest fair maidens, dashing divas and glamorous gals,

How are you? Feeling fab I hope :-)


Since I had a (somehwat reluctant) photographer I thought I'd do an OOTD post. Today was a mostly overcast day here in Chicago, so I opted for shades of blue and gray with accents of brass, red, orange and brown. Today's look was a super duper-comfy-casual-running to the grocery store look. I was going for no frills but I also wanted just a touch of drama...you'll see what I mean, lol. The first few pics were taken indoors due to some drizzling, but after the raindrops stopped, I took it outdoors for a more eye pleasing backdrop.




I had to put my camera on the bookshelf and use the automatic timer, lol.











Though I don't wear this necklace often, I love it because it livens up the neckline of any outfit. It adds a little drama and flair IMO.


















































Did I post enough pictures, lol? I had fun putting this look together today. Initially, I had no idea what I was going to wear and then I wasn't completely sure I liked the look once I had it on...but it worked out pretty well. Next time I'll play around with more color. Well that's it so Ciao for now bellas.

XOXO
