Hello, everyone, and thanks for all the great comments last week! I hadn't planned to post three days in a row, but since I had a pretty good haul from Goodwill, and then Wendy Brandes got inside my head (post here) I just had to seize the moment. Speaking of Wendy B., did you see her invitation to send her pictures of your puffy shirt? (And the giant shout-out to yours truly? I'm blushing.) If you have a puffy shirt, send her a picture and she'll do a big ol' puffy shirt post of the pictures she gets. And if you didn't see that episode of Seinfeld, you can watch this.
This week I'm all about stripes, again (previous post on stripes here).

These pictures were actually taken a couple of weeks ago. A few people have had the discussion about taking pictures ahead of time versus true Outfit of the Day pictures. I do both, mostly because I don't have as much time during the week - work just gets in the way. Although I sometimes take pictures when I go home for lunch. The pictures of my puffly shirt (ruffle + puffy = puffly) were taken the same day I posted because I had to respond to Wendy B. right away. I did NOT want her to outdo me in Seinfeld references. Now we're Even Steven. (I might be a little bit ahead.)

In this outfit I'm posing leisurely because it was the weekend. It's almost exactly what I wore the previous week, with just a change of jewelry because I thought it was time I start shilling for my shop again. The necklace I'm modeling is available from my Etsy shop here.

The shirt and tights are from Target, the skirt is from Old Navy, and the shoes are Dockers, thrifted. The skirt is a large size, but it was all they had. I've had to do some tweaking with the waist and the hem, but it fits now and I love it!

Black shoes or boots would be good, too, but this time I thought it would be cool to not cut my feet off visually. I think the tan shoes work well, repeating the tan in the skirt.
The week I wore this, I wore stripes almost every day! I didn't plan it, and by the fourth day I thought I'd better make a conscious effort to wear something else. However, on one of my stripe days I wore my new obi from Megan Mae.

This picture was taken really quickly at lunch as I was about to go back to work. The pictures were not flattering to my face, so I cut my face off visually. I mean, we're all good friends, but still – some things are better not shared!
I'll be linking up (using a good picture) to Visible Monday at Not Dead Yet Style. See you there!
