Some of my Angie ensembles were fails. Alas. But I figure it's good to post the less successful outfits, too. So here goes.
I absolutely loved the idea of the slogan tee with print bottoms and jacket. But the reality of the outfit wasn't so great. I would have liked it better with pants than shorts -- but apart from jeans, which felt too hot, I have no print pants right now. It was also too hot for the jacket but it didn't feel like an "outfit" without it. So I took the whole thing off before I went out, LOL.
I did like the tee -- an Out of Print "library stamp" tee that I swiped from my DD.
I don't know why I decided to try the olive ensembles when I have so little olive in my closet -- all I have is one pair of BF shorts. I did not enjoy them with the cobalt silk top (purchased for me at the London Ontario Costco 3 years ago by the lovely Sveta). Maybe because the cobalt is more "royal" than cobalt or maybe silk and army green just felt like too much of a juxtaposition to me.
Then there was olive and espadrilles. Not only do I only have one item in olive, but I don't own espadrilles. So I wore a straw stretch belt as a sub. Did not like this -- way too casual/ boyish for me.
Finally, we have denim shorts, interesting top, and a hat. This felt downright ridiculous, so again, I didn't go out in it. The hat is not exactly current but it is sentimental. It belonged to my late sister in law -- one of her baldness-covering hats. She was bald due to the chemo.
Ironically, the version that worked better was an impromptu one in a truck stop during my trip. My brother and I both found hats. :) But we didn't bring them home with us. Too bad.
