Ugh! The weather in Atlanta has been so ugly this week. It’s gray, and rainy, and so uninspiring. I can roll with cold weather, but I hate gray weather. I need some sun in my life. Anyway, I had to break out the old tripod yesterday to take my own pictures. Let me tell you, the gray skies didn’t help! I keep saying I’m going to take a photography class….I at least need to learn about lighting. Everyone says overcast days are the best for taking pictures …but for me all the photos just like gray and depressing? No?? Just me? Lol. Let me stop complaining…
This week’s Style Me Friday look was over the knee boots. I’ve been wearing my Tahari OTK boots non-stop since I bought them a few weeks ago. They are perfect — suede, single sole, and hitting just above the knee. I retired my old pair of OTK boots, which were more like thigh highs with a serious platform. I never wore them because as much as I loved them, they were always just too sexy. My new ones are still sexy…but in a more understated way.
As I as searching for inspiration looks earlier this week, I feel in love with this tailored orange coat look. It reminded me that I just don’t have enough bright coats. I’ve gotta fix that! Lol. I found this oversized wool blazer at Goodwill a couple years ago. Red….double-breasted…gold buttons….isn’t gorgeous? Coats and blazers are one of my favorite things to buy at thrift stores…vintage coats are usually just really great quality…maybe even better quality than your mid-priced coats today.
