Happy (Canada) Thanksgiving

 Top - All Saints
Skirt - BB Dakota, gift
Chain belt - DIY
Boots - Jump, ebay

Happy Thanksgiving to my friends in the North! Hope you all are enjoying your holiday.

I've felt sort of frustrated with my closet. I know I've got some GREAT pieces, but sometimes I'll get in a rut and feel like I can't put pieces together into an outfit that *works*. So I gave myself a freebie today and decided even if I wasn't going to wear it all day, I'd sit down and try on a bunch of outfits until I found one I liked visually and then go from there. The skirt was the starting point. A gift from the lovely Sheila, it is a very strange weaved fabric (50% wool/50% rayon).. but it falls wonderfully and is the perfect shade of yellow.

Next I pulled out this All Saints top (that caused Wendy B to shop!). Now these two pieces I wouldn't typically pair on a Monday for a very specific reason: I have a 3 hour class to sit through. I don't know about you, but I hate having two snug-fitting clothing items on while sitting for hours on end. Adding the chain belt didn't help. But overall I liked the concept, I felt good flouncing around in this for a couple of hours before changing into the outfit linked above with my pleather jacket for added warmth.

Don't forget, sign ups for the next Fashion Challenge started today. You've got nearly two weeks to plan! Keep an eye out this weekend here on Megan Mae Daily for inspirational Polyvores.

  2. You finally wore the skirt! I just love this skirt so much (I am living vicariously through you since I can't find one). Yellow and gray look fantastic together. The boots are so much fun and a perfect item to finish off the outfit.

    Your hair looks good today too! Heather

  5. Your outfit looks great, but I agree about not liking to sit for long periods of time in fitted clothes.

  9. Pretty skirt. That really is the perfect fall shade of yellow.

    What's different? Did you have your hair styled/straightened? Whatever you did, it looks great. It frames your face nicely in this picture.

  10. Thank you! It was a really good Thanksgiving Monday! Enjoying a slice of pie and a glass of wine right now!

    I hear you about the frustration. I think it's that I'm so tired of casual clothes, and I just can't work from home in skirts / dresses.
