This is one of my favorite scarves I've purchased this season. It's a gauzy material in cream, gray, and black. It works well with many things in my wardrobe.
This sweater vest will be able to be worn in many ways as well. I have several other outfits planned with it already.
Yay! These ballet flats passed the test and a painless day at work was had. These are a solid color, but have a sort of fish scale like pattern. They are the kind of shoe that has a little flexibility and makes them more comfortable.

The long, sleeveless cardigan and the scarf are new. The purse is fairly new also. Not sure if I've shown it on the blog before. I really loved the shimmery gold embroidery of the scarf. It makes it a special piece.
This whole outfit just ticks all of my boxes for what I consider a perfect look and style for myself. It may very well be my most favorite outfit I own...the outfit of my dreams. :) Do you have one of those?
This bracelet is also new and one of my favorite jewelry purchases. It is much prettier in person. I was not able to photograph it well .
Well, these shoes definitely took me out of my comfort zone. I was in agony all day at work. So much so that I had to remove my shoes and walk around our office barefoot. Thank goodness I was only working with one female therapist and I'd seen her walking around barefoot on other occasions before too. I explained to her my situation and she replied that she liked me barefoot...that it reminded her of being in Mexico. She'd just returned a couple of days before from vacation. I did not go barefoot in front of patients, of course, but on this day was mainly behind my partitioned desk area where they could not see my feet. (I don't think I've ever shown my office. Maybe I'll post some photos sometime.)
by the end of the day the worst of it was that I had a blister on my heel and aching feet. I stopped at
Goodwill on my way home from work not really expecting to find a more
comfortable replacement, but I was going to make it my mission...even if
it meant numerous thrifting trips to do so. The sacrifices I make.
haha But I got lucky. Extremely lucky. I found a pair of "bendy"
black ballerina flats and a pair of simple black canvas slip ons. Both
seem (so far) to be very comfy. Comfort is going to win
out over style. I'm okay with that. Sure beats a painful blister.
I found the canvas ones I couldn't bear to take them off and put my own shoes back on. When I got to the check out I
explained that I was purchasing the shoes I was wearing and donating my
own. The stylish woman behind the counter asked what size I wore,
dropped them on the floor, slipped them on, and said "I just got a new
pair of shoes!" I was happy she liked them. They looked like they
belonged to her. And now they do.

My first time to wear the circle necklace, shoes, and scarf. I didn't get a close up photo, but the necklace is a double tiered row of circles in an antique gold or bronze color originally from Chico's. The shoes are very similar to another pair I own, but are a lighter brown. Soooo comfy (and great price) I couldn't pass them up! I had gotten 3 different olive colored print scarves and this is the 2nd one. Still one left I have not yet worn.
