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 photos...you know...photos 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 accessories...you 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.

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