     Week #2 of my pre-planned outfit experiment was a sartorial journey through a warming climate. #4 is basically just a cashmere tank-top, which is a totally unnecessary but awesome garment that I'm glad someone decided to make. Monday was the coldest, and will also be the focus outfit of the week, although you'll have to excuse the fact that my skin appears to be jaundice in these photos. As far as I can tell it was a weird side effect of the background wall color, and frankly I don't have the photoshop skills to fix it.

     Well, my first week of outfit planning is off to an alright start. I think it was the most useful on Monday, making the transition from the weekend to the workweek a little easier. I scrapped one planned outfit for logistical reasons, and then downgraded another from a fussy jacket to a warm cardigan, on account of heavy wind and rain. In doing these recaps, I'll probably just focus on my favorite outfit of the bunch, in order to keep these posts to a manageable length. I'll give you two guesses to figure out which outfit that was this week, but suspect you'll only need one. 


Jacket | Vintage Mary McFadden Couture
Dress | Alice + Olivia Lillyanne
Shoes | Kate Spade
Clutch | Reed Krakoff x Kohls
     This was another outfit from the aforementioned wedding weekend (print and embellishment were highly encouraged), and take a seat, because there is a bit of a story here. This dress is contemporary Alice + Olivia (purchased in 2015 from Saks Off 5th), and this jacket is vintage Mary McFadden Couture (after looking into it I'm not sure of the exact year, but I think it probably around 50 years old), and after having both of them sit in my closet for a few years, I never thought to pair them together, until this night. Now that I have, it seems crazy I never previously saw how complimentary they were.

      I went to a wedding this past weekend, and was finally able to take a few photos of this dress! I mentioned it as one of my favorite purchases of 2017, but hadn't taken any photos of it previously. 
     It is a dark navy with metallic thread embellishments, and has a three-tired skirt that floats and moves in any breeze. I had planned to wear a pair of four-inch red suede heels (and a coordinating red lip) but an hour before heading out there was a short downpour, with a looming threat of more rain. I figured flats were more practical, as I'm not very graceful in heels to begin with. A leather jacket and blue and black color-blocked clutch finished off the outfit.
