A Khaki Sort of Day

Apologies to everyone - I've been so busy that blogging has been moved to the back burner.  But today is Visible Monday!

What have I been up to?  Well, last Monday, I attended another council meeting; Wednesday I went to get a bone scan and at home, we are trying unsuccessfully to get the house in order after moving the older son downstairs.

We have some wonderful late summer weather - it was a nice 23 C degrees - any more than that and it tends to get sticky and unpleasant.

Pink Calico: Khaki

Today's outfit is my usual look, but sans scarf - it's my "work" look - a skirt, top and jacket.  Although it's sunny out, I'm starting to think autumn and wore darker tights.

Pink Calico: Khaki

I quite like this colour - it's sable and I think it would go well with all that burgundy that we are supposed to be seeing for fall.

The thrifty item from this outfit is the ruffled tank which I found at the Dollar Store.  Just the thing to wear under open v-necks.

Pink Calico: Khaki

I am still quite happy with the comfy, easy-on tube-waist skirts, although I am more comfortable with a jacket worn over top.

  1. You look great! The weather is funny - sometimes it feels like summer, and then, boom, the sun sets like a typical autumn day. I love the sable colour.

  2. You look great in this grey! And I think the tube skirt is perfect with the blouse. The waistband is very slimming! What is council? Tribal council? Good luck with the foot issue. I hope it's something that can be easily taken care of!

    1. Thanks Susan - I'm hoping the foot thing will fix my "cannot wear heels" problem - or as it is now - cannot wear flats either!

      Tribal Council yes! no, the council meeting is for my work - I'm an executive councillor for the union - it's sort of a glorified job steward role - we attend budget meetings and the like.

  4. The khaki colour is really great on you! I love your blouse, it's such a lovely pattern, and the jacket - with the different texture. Very nice outfit indeed! And lovely dog of course!

    1. I bought the blouse just because of the print during my green-buying spree...

  6. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in
    your article seem to be running off the screen in Opera.
    I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you
    know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon.
    Thanks
