WIW--Look, I do casual!

Also, Shannon, what were you saying the other day about unflattering photographs?

I think I was too tired after a long day [at work and my bus blowing a tire on the way home and having to run several blocks in heels to find another way home and then to find both my kids and husband home sick and needing TLC] to smile properly.

Oh well. The outfit was comfy! Some day, I'd like to get a white or red or pink jacket to wear with the top. This ensemble is a tad too dark for me.

    OK, yes, I can absolutely see you with a white, red or pink jacket over this (and there are a lot out there right now). However, this is so amazingly fun and perfectly you. The black provides a perfect backdrop for the modernist top and the fabulous shoes. Hope your weekend gives you a little chance for a rest.

    Very cute! And still very polished even for casual. Sorry about the flat bus tire and the sick family : (

    I like it too. The skinny pants look great on you. Meredith has put together some fabulous casual outfits with skinny pants. You should check her pics for inspiration. I think those pants could be the perfect casual bottom for you.

    Sounds like you had a rough day. I hope you get a chance to relax a bit on the weekend.

    Wow, what a day, Amy! I hope everyone is starting to feel better.

    And this is a great outfit! I agree, the top would be fantastic with a pink jacket, but it's good as it is, too. You look wonderful in the pants and shoes!

    Wow, the shoes really work well with the top! Nice! I am on the lookout for a cream jacket myself...preferable leather or pleather. I'm going to check the Rack this weekend.

    Sorry about your exhausting day. )-:

    What a great top, Amy. I like it as is but I see what you mean about it being too dark. I hope you will find a fun bright jacket to wear it with!
    I also hope your weekend is better that today and you can relax :-)

    I love the top and the outfit, Amy! The top looks very versatile with lots of styling options. So sorry to hear about the commuting problems and your sick family. I hope they are feeling better soon.

    Amy, what a hell of a day! Hope things are looking better at home.

    I LOVE the modernity of this outfit. Softened up but strong. I wonder if this top would work with the Chanel-esque tipped jacket in your other thread?

    What a crazy day - luckily it's the weekend already.

    That top is so fun - cream/magenta/red/grey - you could spin it other directions but the asymmetrical hem on your topper pairs well with it - your overall look is very mod :)

    I love that top! Wow, that's a great print. And yes, you officially *need* a light or bright jacket once it warms up a bit more. Love the shoes and you look super in your casual skinny pants! If I hadn't heard your tragic story, I would never have known from this picture how rough your day was. Seriously we all just pick ourselves apart in photos! Hope you get some down time this weekend, Supermom!

    So sorry about your exasperating day!

    That top is FAB. I thought you had a colored draped cardigan that you made? You had linked to a website that showed how to tie it in different ways.

  • Joy replied 9 years ago

    You look great to have had such a trying day.

  • Amy replied 9 years ago

    Thanks, everyone.

    AJ, I do have a colored cardi,but it's a burgundy color and doesn't look quite right with thsi :)

  • Jewell replied 9 years ago

    That is a really fun top, and I love the shoes!

  • Jonesy replied 9 years ago

    What an unbelievable day you had! I would probably be in tears by the end of the night, if that were me :). I think this outfit is fab. The oxfords add so much style!

    awesome outfit Amy! I love those shoes with it! A lighter color jacket or even a colored one will make it super springy!
