Happy Wednesday, ladies! We’re in the home stretch not only with the holidays but 2021. In a mere ten days, 2022 will be here. I had to repeat 2022 since I clearly remember ushering in 2000 twenty-two years ago! Anyone remember Y2K and all the hubbub created about the new century? Yep, we were headed for a tech crash since our computers wouldn’t be able to handle the task of recognizing 2000 from 1900. Many of us stockpiled food, water, arms, cash and even bought backup generators to avoid disaster. Sound familiar? Ha! Honestly, those seem like the good old days when the world wide web was just getting its legs and information wasn’t slung at us in rapid-fire succession. I was thrilled to have email back then to stay in touch with my mom. In the aughts, I lived overseas and was on a completely different timetable than her. It wasn’t always easy to pick up the phone and say hello, but I could bang out an email and hit send, which solved the problem. Anyhoo, 2022 here we come!
Today, I thought we would take a look at shoes. Shoes are an accessory that reflects your lifestyle, personal taste, and even comfort. I’m a big believer that shoes make or break your outfit. Wide-leg pants require a different shoe style than a pencil skirt. And an evening gown needs a special shoe to match the special occasion. Many of us have developed feet issues through the years, which dictate our shoe choices. So far, my feet have held up remarkably well. I can still slip into a pair of stilettos or sneakers on any given day, so I have lots of choices when it comes to shoes. And I do love shoes.
Today’s ootd is a simple style recipe that consists of a cozy sweater and jeans. Everlane is one of my favorite brands when it comes to sweaters. And I like their denim too. Several weeks ago, I purchased this stroopwafel turtleneck sweater in a gorgeous shade of blue called bright cobalt in an oversized boxy shape. I liked it so much that I went back for seconds. This time I decided on a neutral called speckled brown sugar that looks great with white denim or, in this case, ecru. The denim is also from Everlane. I chose the rigid slouch jean this go-round made from 100% organic cotton with a button fly. It has a relaxed fit if you select your usual size. If you want a slimmer fit go down one size. I wanted a slouchy boyfriend jean look, so I stuck with a size 29. It definitely has that oversized look and feel, so I’m a happy camper.
Happy Wednesday, ladies. It’s time to put a smile on someone’s face including yours.
