Grudging Nod to the Blue CA Skies

DH and I were feeling well enough to venture out for lunch today. Still, I really hesitated to post this photo, because I have toboggan-hat hair and a bit of a double chin from the angle of the camera. I also was not feeling the summer weather and would have been happier with an overcast day. :(

In the end, though, I still like the outfit enough to record it. I went for a column of color on bottom with dark wash jeans and a navy tank, hoping that the tighter underlayer would help give me a waist in the midst of all the volume. If I could go back, I would leave off the necklace.

dip dye top - Anthropologie
navy tank - flea market
boyfriend jeans - Old Navy
men's belt - flea market
Ted Baker bag - flea market
Sperry boat shoes - flea market

    You look great and I do not see a double chin! That ombre sweater is one of my favorites. Oh, and wait until next week, winter is supposed to return.

    I like the many shades of blue. The white bag is a peep of spring but not too much :)

  • Jjsloane replied 6 years ago

    No issues with the necklace and I only looked at your chin because you told me to.
    Very nice. I want spring already now, but it looks like we might get some winter this weekend afterall.

    Love it!

    I love this shade of blue -- especially in the ombre. It's very happy. This is such a comfy casual look. (Don't worry about the camera angle. We know how pretty you are!)

  • CocoLion replied 6 years ago

    No double chin, I think this is a really good picture of you. Is this a new camera?

    You really do the rolled bf jeans well and I love the dip dye sweater making for a very blue outfit (tonal love).

    But I would have rather seen the galaxy oxfords here, I am not a boat shoe girl. However if the boat shoe connection to water brings us some more rain in CA I will take it. (I'm with you on preferring an overcast day, actually I want some rainy days. We have enough sun here already.)

    Great BF styling! I love this, and it's perfect for a sunny day.

    Denise, I was this close to wearing the oxfords! I did not have time to try both, and I was afraid it would be TMGO on top of the ombre. Next time!

    Love it! That color looks so good on you - and I'm going to be wearing mine with a navy tank underneath as well. I'm with Denise on the shoes - the oxfords would have been smashing! (not that there's anything wrong with the boat shoes - its just that the oxfords IMO would have been better.) I am a lover of sunshine so today was my kind of day - sorry to hear that we are going to be getting "winter" weather again! Oh, and where's the double chin?????

    Rae, you look amazing and I could never tell you are feeling less than 100% healthy. That colour is my absolute favourite and the shirt is just fabulous. Love how you've styled it and managed waist definition too! You are radiant in the sunlight!

    Preppy Tomboy Fabness with a little Girly thrown in :)

    I think you look great in this clean, minimalist outfit.

    Suddenly The Mamas and the Papas' California Dreamin' is playing in my head. On such a winter's day....

    Love all the lovely sunny shades of blue; and I don't have any issues with the necklace either and definitely no double chin. You look great!

  • Andrea W replied 6 years ago

    Love the outfit Rae! It is a perfect combo (I am coveting the jumper too)
