top &cardigan zara     skirt thrifted& tailored  pumps made in Greece , leather
You have to excuse me for this heavily photoshoped photo but it was too dark today when I took the photos. We are having an autumn sort of weather with a big drop of temperature and lots of rain.
I came up with this color combination after playing with my collages and I admit that putting together in an outfit two shades of beige or whatever this color is called has escaped me so far.
Note how the scarf has a few blue details that match the color of the skirt. If there was no danger to be considered as a crazy person I would wear this skirt every day for whole month. This skirt matches at least 25 of my tops as I discovered recently.
Another thing I discovered is that lately I've been shopping to fill the gaps in my wardrobe. I had been doing this without much thought but today I realised that the only reason I 'm justified to shop is to bridge the gaps.
I know it sounds a bit all over the place but I'm taking notes and write down what I miss and then I wait until things come my way.
And they do come like this pair of nude pumps . I needed a pair but waited until I found this pair which is leather ,made in Greece(I'm becoming a bit more conscious to shop local) and heavily discounted .They tick all boxes so they came home with me.
I wish everybody a great weekend and plenty of rest to be strong for the week to come.

  2. This combination probably would have escaped me, too- and what a pity! This is simply wonderful!! The nude pumps are sublime!!!

  3. It's a lovely combination, I like how the caramel-coloured cardigan and scarf add warmth, and I think your reasoning for buying the nude shoes makes perfect sense! xx

  5. Oooh! I love the nude pumps!!!
    You look so classy! I would not have put these two colors together, but it works! I think the scarf is a perfect finishing touch to tie the two together. Well done Angie!

  6. Whoa--I love these colors and the scarf pulls it all together so beautifully. Now you've got me wondering if I need to make this same database out of my closet...and you've also got me looking for a light blue skirt in the thrifts.

  7. Very nice!

    I like the way you've got the darker sweater knotted at the waist, it provides definition.
    Looking at this outfit I think you coulg try a belt over the sweater on the "Going Cheerful" outfit.

    I hope the nude pumps are comfortable, they look good with those colors.
