Do I look like a nun or a box?
This morning my outfit was not very inspired. It was 7:50 am and I still wasn't dressed. My classroom doors have to be open at 8:10. Eeek! So I pulled out this Ricki's brown skirt from last year, polka dot blouse from Winners, Jessica shoes, Suzy Shier necklace and my Joe Fresh Fireball earrings.
I've decided to try as much as possible to take pictures of my outfits. It will hopefully spice up my blog a bit and give me a good visual reminder of what looks good or not so good. The trick is getting DH home to snap a photo of me. I'm working on getting a tripod.
Today my order from Martin and Osa arrived. First off is the Square-Neck Tank in optic white (size 6). I find it hard to find a dressier white tank that is not sheer. Unfortunately, this will not work. DH said it reminded him of something a nun would wear. Yuck!
Next up is the Pleated Silk Tee in Boat Red (size small). This fit like a box on me. No likey.
Then I tried the Ruffle-Placket Tank (size small) in Twilight Navy. I love it. For $10, I think I will order the other colors as well. I like how it doesn't show my bra and bra straps. So many tanks are see-through with spaghetti straps. I need more coverage.
The Pleated Skirt in Deckhand White (size 6) also came in this package. The skirt is ok but last week as I was digging on my closet, I found two similar white skirts I had forgotten about. I really don't need three pleated white skirts.
All in all, not a very successful order.
