So this is what happens when I don’t have time to think about an outfit. I throw together something I have worn before that I liked. The problem with this in this situation is that I ended up a bit overdressed for work. I think it was that I didn’t remember how low-cut the neckline on this dress was until after I went to work and that made me self-conscious all day about it. But in any case, I felt overdressed this time.

New Seychelles shoes!That doesn’t mean I don’t like this outfit! I really love this dress. The colors are just amazing and whatever fabric it is made of, it drapes wonderfully and is sooo soft to the touch. I did get to pair it with my new shoes that Hubby picked out for me at Nordstrom Rack. They are my favorite brand, Seychelles, and were on clearance for $25. That is a deal you just can’t turn down for Seychelles, so he got them for me. I have a sweet hubby, though I am sure part of the reason he got them was to just hurry me out of the store so I couldn’t try on anything else!

I think I will probably be wearing this cardi more now that it is almost Fall. It is nice and light with the open weave but black is always great to go with everything. And I got to wear this new, cool vintage flower necklace that I picked up on Etsy recently. I got a few compliments on it at work.

Poor ol Tilde pupMy dog was very interested in the picture session. Usually she is downstairs with my son but this morning she decided to come check things out. I had to give her a few pets before she would settle down out of range of the camera. Poor ol’ puppy. I did manage to get a relatively new pose out of the session today. I had no idea how hard it is to force yourself to try out new poses before all this blogging. I really need to find some kind of posing guide… but I guess getting a new one every week or so is better than every one the same!
