Finally - A Feel Good Outfit!

Since the crisp white shirt and cords outfit didn't go so well, this week getting dressed has put me in a some find of a funk.  Not one single photo has turned out post-worthy until today.  Still, there is too much sun in the photo, but at least I really like what I'm wearing today.  I never knew I could love yellow so much. 

Feeling Good Outfit (location:  outside husband's office)

Clinton Kelly says the hem on jeans should be as long as possible but not so long they are dragging on the floor - he says the hem should be 1/4"-1/2" from the floor.  I think I achieve that here.  I am obsessed with having my pants the correct length.  I can't stand it when I see people walk around with bootcut or wide leg pants 3 or 4" from the floor.  That drives me completely batty.

My husband picked out this gold chunky fashion necklace all by himself and surprised me with it for my 40th birthday.  At that time I never wore big chunky jewelry but I wanted to.  I just didn't know how.  I was afraid.  I am no longer afraid.

Caslon cami chocolate brown -
KUT From The Kloth wide leg trouser jeans Delight wash - Nordstrom Rack
Another Line skinny patent belt chocolate brown -

Nordstrom brand crinkled leather handbag khaki 
Liz Palacios 'Zodiac' pendant necklace gold with light green and light amber stones - Nordstrom  

*I never should have said I ONLY wear Cole Haan heels because that is not true.  If the toe is not too pointy and does not squish my toes too tight and the overall quality is good and they are comfy I will wear them.

  10. ProfBerta,
    Thanks! I love it, too.

    Donna, Thanks! Yes, he should.

    Kelly, Thanks! I definitely want to wear more yellow. I always thought I shouldn't wear yellow since my skin is so pale, but I think it works just fine.

    Judy C, Awww thanks! This is as good as it gets.

    Joy, thank you! I am totally in love with the shoes. I don't seem to wear them enough. Here's a stock photo so you can see all the amazing detail:

    Chris, Hee Hee! I hope Clinton would approve. I think he might want a pattern somewhere... oh well...

    SU, Thanks, I will tell him he did a great job. The bag I got for 50% off! It is the Nordstrom house brand. I like it, but it droops to be vertical in shape more than I'd like. The stock photo shows it being more of a horizontal rectangular shape which I preferred:

    Thanks so much! He sure does when he wants to.
