Embracing Modesty, No. 47

Embracing Modesty, No. 47

I only have 2 pictures for you today because, frankly, I’m sleepy and want to go to bed.  Thanksgiving wore me out and I can’t think of nothing but lying my head on my pillow and dreaming of a clean kitchen.  And pie.

I went out a couple of times this past week and so I will show you what I wore.  I am very quickly running out of shirts that I can wear.  I have been able to take in some skirts and found a couple of new ones.  But the tops are a problem.

This is what I wore on Thanksgiving day.  I wanted to be comfortable (which is why I am wearing slippers instead of shoes) and warm.  The black skirt and top are old, maybe 10+ years.  The silver top I got at Target last week.  It’s longer in the back than front, which is a cute look.  Just a few accessories and I was comfy but still dressed up for the day.

This other look is from a shopping day with my girls.  I didn’t get a photo before we left the house, but I took one (kind of blurry, sorry) in one of the dressing rooms when they were trying on clothes.  This red skirt is from Versona and the velvet jacket was one of my favorites from back in my skinnier days.  I want to get a few wears out of it before it gets to be too big for me!

The brown boots are my faves this winter.  They are made my Danskin….dreamy!
