I named this post Aunt Nancy mainly because it was my nephew’s 3rd birthday when I was wearing it.
Surprise surprise, my outfit is basically all from the store Dynamite. Jeesh! I had no idea I have so many things from this one store in my closet! Guess it’s my favorite g0–to place for work attire.
The top I’m wearing doesn’t get much wear out of it as my purple one does. I bought the purple ruffle top first and ended up absolutely in love with it (meaning wearing it maybe more than once a week!) so I bought the yellow, and white one! Gotta say, it’s pretty difficult to pair the white one with a pair of trousers or shorts because I’d end up looking like a waitress/server! So that barely gets any use. Hmpf.
Wow. I really need a hair cut. Colonix? Not so much needed. Fret not, I booked a hair appointment for July 31!~ Though it got me thinking, I want to go back to my orange/yellow/black/blonde hair days. See what I mean? It looked good, and I miss it!
Top: Dynamite [circa May 2009!]
Cardigan: Smart Set [bought a long time ago but rarely worn because I used to hate the color]
Capri’s: Dynamite maybe $35? [purchased two summers ago when I started working here]
Shoes: Brand name: Seychelle’s. Purchased in spring 2007 from Browns online store in Toronto, and have worn the heck out of them. I mean, look at the toes on them! What a disgrace :) I have yet to make another purchase from Browns. Guess it was a one time only thing. I really don’t like anything they have listed and even if I do like it, it’s like three hundred bucks for a pair of flip flops!
And now for some close ups! First, the capri/bermuda/shorts. Probably not the most flattering photo known to mankind, but what can you do. It was taken swiftly and with my blackberry. So there ya have it. Some minature triangle design with a black satin sash belt to boot. Lovely.
Shoes? I really shouldn’t be wearing these to work. They’re so worn out. They’re the most comfortable soft leather flats available. Decided I needed a backup second pair and ended up contacting the designer of Seychelle’s and asking if they had any in my size in Canada or the US. Unfotunately, I was a few months too late as they stopped making the shoe. Wah wah!
