Skirt: Ann Taylor
Belt: vintage - thrifted
Shoes: Steve Madden via DSW
Earrings: gift from SIL
I am not loving my outfit. I am, however, liking my Posh Spice pose, in which you put one leg in front of the other, put your hands on your hips, and throw your shoulders back to look longer and leaner. That's not the official name of the pose, I'm sure, but it's what I call it because I've got a soft spot for Posh (don't judge), and isn't she always standing like that?
Here's a better look at my earrings. These are among my favorites, I think. My sister-in-law A. did a great job picking these out for me. They're walking the line between delicate and statementy and I like that.
I had a great hair day today. I washed it last night, wrapped it up in a towel with a bit of mousse, went to sleep on it while it was still damp, and woke up with these gorgeous curls. I tell you one thing about curls, you never know what they're going to do. When you wake up with them looking this good, though, you have to wear your hair loose. That's just how it works.
And because I have no other decent pictures of this outfit to show you, it's time for Turkey pics:
Turkish musicians near the Grand Bazaar after sundown during Ramadan - everyone was out on the streets at night.
Me and some really big candlesticks at the Turkish and Islamic Arts Museum. Also, Lorena of Lorena's Every Day Wear asked me the other day about what color purse I was using with this outfit. The answer is seen above. I bought that purse for the trip and I hate switching bags, so I've been using it since.
Finally, B. and some really big Turkish rugs at the museum. For the record, he's 6'3".
