Ever look at your closet completely befuddled?  What am I going to wear today?  I am particularly challenged when I have something I have to dress up for.  I live in casual clothes.  So for my friend’s daughters’ christening I stared at my closet for quite awhile before coming up with this outfit and I really like it.  It was dressy but not too dressy.  The skirt is Target from 4 years ago.  I love it because of it’s colors and pattern but also I can dress it up or down and it has pockets!  I’ve worn it with tanks and tees but I can dress it up with a blouse or cardigan sweater.  Today it’s something in between.  With my oversized menswear shirt from last fall (TJ Maxx, also seen here and here) and white tank from Target, half tucked to make it feel more casual.  The shoes are my pop of color!  They are so old I can’t even remember where I got them.  If I were going to buy another pair — I might go for these –love them! The blue and orange combo never grows old for me.  A little side note, the summer after my senior year in high school I went to Spain.  I had to pack for a whole summer.  As we shopped (probably all at TJ Maxx), my mother and I decided on a color palette so that I could make multiple outfits with fewer pieces.  So blue and orange became the winning combination for Summer 1987.  I wonder if that is why I still love it to this day.
