Layering Lavender (OOTDs)

So, upon seeing my outfit today, my husband said, "You're wearing camo." And when I looked confused, he added, "For romping through a field of violets."

Ah. Got it. ^_-

Shirt: Burberry Button-up (similar here and here)
Top: Muted Lavender Top, Anthro (similar here and here)
Pants: Nanette Lepore Tweed Trousers (similar here and here)
Shoes: Miu Miu Suede Platform Pumps (similar here and here)
Necklace: Purple freshwater pearls (similar here)


I must apologize in advance - I'm a lazy, lazy girl.

Today's OOTD was just a simple recreation of an outfit I'd put together in the Anthro fitting room a few months back. With the change to Daylight Savings Time, I am completely, totally discombobulated so I didn't exactly have an outfit in mind when I stumbled out of bed an hour earlier than usual. (I swear I didn't mean to hit my husband in the head when I woke up!) I guess that's when I'm thankful for shirtdresses that are so easy to throw on that you don't even really have to think about the rest.

Forgive me for the weeds in my backyard - I'll have to have my husband attend to those, haha!

Refined Cord Shirtdress (Anthro, Winter 2010...pretty option here and a cute option here)
Brume Chemise (underneath, also Winter 2010)
Belt from Triumvirate Belts set (3 belts for SUCH a great value, at $48!)
Steve Madden Intyce Boots in Cognac (buy here)
Nordstrom Charcoal socks
Anthropologie Idesia Necklace (Christmas present from Carol)

I hate time changes.

Thanks so much for reading!

  2. hehehe... husbands say the funniest things sometimes. Looking good Carol!
    And Kathryn, you look effortless in your shirtdress. I get my hubby to attend to weeds too ;-)

  3. Carol, I love the way you've styled this lavender top. I would have never thought to wear it over a buttong down shirt with trousers. It looks great! You're husband is hilarious too!

    Kathryn, what a throw-together-last-minute-outfit! You look so put together for being all "discombobulated" :) And I didn't even notice you had weeds!

  4. You both are adorable! Carol, didn't your husband mistake something else for camo recently??? Funny man! Kathryn, I need to break out my knee socks again now that it's not freezing here - so cute!

  5. @Jan - yes, he did! He said I looked like I was wearing "girly camo" when I had on the green bianka blouse a couple months back. Haha, who knew I had so much "camo" in my closet?

  6. You look so great in those pants! It's just loose enough to look classy...and not baggy. The length goes well with those heels as well. Perfect!

  7. I loved this post! It's always fun finding out more things about women you admire and whatnot.
    How awesome for the two of you to have each other to bounce ideas off of and get inspiration! You both are so lovely!
