Outfit of the day!

Now that I am getting a bit used to Polyvore I have been able to assemble a few outfits on there.  But what I don't understand is why we can't upload our own of clothes we own!  I have discovered the only clothes available on Polyvore are clothes for sale, online, right now.  That doesn't really help when I want to create an outfit around a shirt I bought 20 years ago.  Or even last year.  Anyhoo, I am plugging along, trying to find pieces that are close to my own.

I wore this outfit to the country club for Christmas brunch with my in-laws.  It's a white shirt, grey trousers, houndstooth wrap, T&Co twilly, LV bag, and some accessories I wear quite often as they appear over and over.  This really does confirm the idea of having a few good, solid basics and they will get you through most occasions. 

The Suburban Prince, for some reason, insisted on doing the driving this day so I got to spend time taking photos with my new phone.  If you are Facebook friends with me you probably saw the photo I took of myself in the car.  Apparently I look like a movie star in this outfit.  Works for me!

I took this photo in the parking lot...with my MIL in the background asking everyone what I am doing over and over.  She has hip and knee problems so she walks slow...which means unlike the rest of us who walk fast, she gets a much longer view of the world.  More time to take it all in.  I think because she raised three boys, she can't see anyone doing anything unsupervised and not wonder out loud what they are doing.  I constantly fight the urge to scream, 'Mind your business!!'.    So, here we see the grey trousers which, in this photo, make it seem like I have a thigh of gargantuan proportions (Must spend more time practicing with self portraits), along with the wrap and some can just barely see my polkadotty socks.  There's always a little bit of GTH going on with my outfits.   

Have a fabulous day!

Pinterest...most of the stuff on there is "sold out!" I just put stuff together that kinda looks like what I wear. I haven't done a Polyvore in a few days...chop chop Miss Janice!

Anywho...LOVE the houndstooth wrap and the LV goes without saying!

Oh lovely! Hang on there are Tiffany twillys? What a fabulous colour to own in a twilly, oh I bet it's another US only product.

Tres chic! I saw your look on FB and you do look like a movie star. I bet you stopped people in their tracks.

I love your outfit. I saw the pic on FB of you in the car!

Great outfit. I agree that it's key to have a few classic pieces that will carry through all the trends.

I love your outfit! I have to ask...what is the name and maker of your shoes? Are the same as the ones featured in the Polyvore photo? Please email me if you don't mind. Thank you.
