Go Your Own Way

May 17th, 2010 by Selise

I love the weather out there. I wish it wasn’t too dark to take pictures out but such is this time of year. It’s all grey and cloudy and chilly. Not cold yet but definitely chilly. I just feel at home when it’s like this. I’m in my element. Layering it up, clashing, mixing, matching. Yes, yes, yes, yes.

I like what happened today. I didn’t plan a lick of it. I simply picked things up as I walked throughout the house. The skirt from the clean washing basket, the shirt from the couch where the laundry was taken in last night before it got too damp out there. Then back into the bedroom to pull the tights out of my tights “bag”, a singlet from the wardrobe, the blazer off its hanger, the ring from my yellow jewellery tree. It needed a necklace so this wonderful gift from many Christmases ago came off the yellow tree too. A search through the bathroom, kitchen and laundry cupboards came back with no polish so these shoes will face another day scuffed. Why is it that one is so much more scuffed than the other? The gloves were already in my bag and as the day wore on they made an appearance.

I loved dressing this way. No stress, almost a fluid motion. I wish every day was this easy.

    Yes, this outfit is awesome. Love the second pic. And layering is nice, isn't it? Though I am glad we are going into summer here. It's hard to wish for fall in the spring. Though I do LOVE fall (and fall clothes).

    The gloves are the perfect touch.

    ps. I dress like this too! I thought I was the only one!

    Love that outfit. I like the mixing of the patterns. The floral and the plaid looks so good together.

    Perfect outfit! I love those arms warmers! I wanted a pair this past winter, but never ended up shelling out the dough for them. Maybe next year 🙂

    i love easy-dress days like that. some of my favorite outfits come from reaching into my closet and pulling out whatever i touch first.
    love your blog!
