Colder weather today. Got the blahs

Slightly colder so I pulled out a pair of cords today.

Striped taupe top
Denim jacket
Brown bootleg cords
Taupe shooties
Blue multi print scarf
poppy raincoat
Orange purse
Black suede rainhat

I think it looks ok but don't really love these cords.

Thanks for dropping by.

    Don't you just wish the weather would make up its mind Meredith? You look great anyway!

    hi Shannon!
    Yes I do wish it would make up its mind!

    You always brighten up the gray days, Meredith. That orange bag is like a warm fire and ray of sunlight all in one.

    I think you look great in that top/jacket combo, plus hat, and I can't see a problem with the pants - but I'm feeling you on the weather confusion! We are going from cold back to warm this week (it's Autumn) and I'm having trouble getting in the zone (mentally) to dress both appropriately and fab-ly!

    I was thinking what to call your bag because I really love it then I saw Rae's comment and she is right on. Warm fire and ray of sunlight.

    You look great! Your bag adds such a perfect burst of color, and your layered blues are lovely on you. Also I really love your poppy coat!

    I hope the poppy coat and orange bag lifted your spirits?! We had a cool day here today and I was uninspired...pulled out denim and a corduroy jacket. Blah!

    I used to *love* cords, but I think my love affair with corduroy pants is definitely cooling...

    Meredith -- I think you've unleashed the "color beast" of Spring! It's hard to go back to neutral, cold-weather pants. Don't do anything drastic now, like paint grafitti all over them or make them into fringed cutoffs! Warm weather will return!

    PS -- I love the bag, too!

  • ManidipaM replied 9 years ago

    Blue and red-orange! Right on trend, Meredith. And you have a SUEDE rain hat? I'm so coveting that! Hope the weather makes it unnecessary soon though!

  • Kirti replied 9 years ago

    It has been freezing here too! I had to pull out my winter coat :'(

    You do look fab though :-)

  • Meredith1953 replied 9 years ago

    Thanks! I like your description of the purse being like "warm fire" and "ray of sunlight"!
    Thanks so much for the reassurance about the pants. Most of them feel a little short. I sympathize with having to change our way of dressing when we are mentally so ready for spring.
    Thank you for liking the purse!
    Thank you so much for liking the blue layers and the color of the coat.
    I think my own love affair with corduroy has waned a bit also. It also just feels so Fallish, and I am impatient for Spring/Summer.
    @Beth Ann,
    I agree it's hard to go back to all the neutrals of Winter when we have been dressing that way for so long. I promise not to do anything rash. Can't afford to trash any of the wearable clothing I have! I am so glad you like the bag!
    Hat is suede and sort of beat up looking but I believe it has "character". Yep. I want it to go back into the closet for awhile though.
    Weird weather. I am sorry it is so mercurial for you also. Thanks for the compliment!
