Wind in my Sails

 Tee - Route 66, thrifted
Scarf - Thrifted
Trousers - Elevenses, thrifted
Amelia Boots - Miz Mooz
Hat - Target
Jewelry - gift, gift, gift (Mom, Sheila, Keely?)

Final day of my official unofficial Sheila Week.  I remembered the brand was carried by Anthro while I was puttering around Goodwill waiting for the hubs to pick me up. These pants were in nearly perfect condition (one button needed some reinforcement), and cost me about $3. I actually came out with a few great scores, including a silk and cashmere blend sweater for D. I also snagged a skirt and 3/4 cotton tee by Patagonia. 

I probably need to do a clean out though, because right after I got out of the store, my mom called and told me "I got you some new clothes!"

I'm sure everyone was anticipating my yellow skirt, but I couldn't wait to wear these trousers. Instead of my yellow skirt, I wore the snake ring and "our boots". Sheila has these same boots in a gorgeous blood red.

This outfit is a reinterpretation of this 2009 outfit. I think my attention to details has upgraded in the past few years, but my tastes have stayed relatively the same. The biggest difference though? I wear brown now. Three years ago, I discounted this whole color range because I hated a certain shade of brown. I now appreciate rich cognacs, deep siennas and oxbloods, and my favorites - bitter cacao shades.

Don't forget everyone - Layer Up Week starts on Monday! Join up if you haven't already.
