Happy Sunday and, Yes, it is time to think easy like Sunday morning by focusing on great foundations in the closet.  What makes a great foundation? Pieces, usually neutral, which will go with a variety of different outfits; they fit really well; and make us feel confident every time we were them.  I have to be careful with my most confident foundation pieces, because I am tempted to wear them often…like really often.  I would wear these dark wash jeans from Chico’s to work three times a week if I could…I like styling them that much.

Thee lightweight navy cardigan from Talbot’s is a great piece as well.  I can wear it all year long…serves me well in the summer in my heavily air conditioned office and it goes with many, many other pieces.  You really need to have a solid foundation of these types of items in a working wardrobe.  It keeps you fresh, confident and provides fun with styling.  I have one pair of black pants I got a few years ago at a boutique and I am close to wearing them out they fit so well.  Locating another pair is a good problem to have, but I am not quite there yet.  This sleeveless floral top is one I found a Marshalls a few years ago and though it is fitting a little large right now I can still wear it.  It also looks good with my jeans and a white blazer.  I was meeting a friend for lunch during my work day (thanks for taking the pictures, Iris!) and that is why I have my large black leather James Avery work tote.  Normally, I do not carry a bag this large to meet someone for lunch

A touch of fun to this outfit is the colorful beaded necklace recently sent to me from Chicos Off the Rack.…such a great place to find Chico’s jewelry for discount pricing.  My shoes are the Metallic Gold Nuture shoes from Dillards…find below…so comfortable and cute!!  The outfit, the shoes, the company, the location, and the healthy lunch had me laughing!!

ABOUT WOULD YOU WEAR IT DRESS

A reminder:  I do not comment on the Would You Wear it Outfit on the day of the event.  I now comment on the day after.  This may surprise you…since so many did not care for the outfit, but if this garment is offered in my size, I want to try it on.  I like the fact that it allows me to show some leg in a modest way.  It would be perfect for a Fiesta party (which begins soon in San Antonio), or a trip with friends to a lake house this summer (much better than shorts and a tee shirt), or a summer evening dinner on the San Antonio Riverwalk. Alicia gets what I am saying!  In this area of the country, the style and the print are perfect.  I could see it have the potential to be flattering and age appropriate (so I do disagree that it is a style for teens only).  If I try it on, I will let you know how it went.  

Big Announcement!
