It's been grey and overcast for the past three days here in the "Valley of the Sun" with rain falling intermittently, very unlike our normal sunny weather. It is a nice change of pace, though, keeping us inside and curled up by the fireplace reading a good book. Our current weather is a reminder of the vacations I spent in England as a child, sometimes attending my cousin's private girls' school if I happened to be there when school was still in session. My outfit below reminds me of those times:
Nordstrom sweater; Brooks Brothers shirt; tie stolen from my husband's closet (maybe not "stolen" since he doesn't even remember owning it); Chico's slacks
Sorry about the flash reflecting in the mirrored surface of the tray behind me. That just shows what a grey day it was inside, too! Not even enough light to take a picture without the flash.
That's my little bagpiper I'm using as a tie pin. Growing up, it was always a treat when Uncle Bill would play his bagpipes for us in Nana's and Baba's garden. I'm not sure their neighbors felt the same way, though.
I'm keeping the grey going with a grey Michael Kors Hamilton purse; sterling silver ring and cuff
Top cuff: Ann Taylor; bottom cuff: new eel skin and silver bracelet from Roberto Mantellassi
Michael Kors watch
Grey flannel Gianni Binni heels
I know that other places in the country (and around the world) are much colder than here so stay warm, everybody! Hope to see you Thursday for my take on a Valentine's tablescape and more winter decor. Check in with Ann and Sheila this week on Tuesday and Wednesday for champagne cupcakes and more!
