Playful Pencil with kitties

Proportions look odd in the photo but it seems to look better IRL. I am in desperate need of a haircut and this is what I'll wear! Comfy and easy for a long bus ride. 

I'm aiming for look #2 here. 

ETA also with sheers. Better. Just like Angie said.

    You had me at kitties =^-^=

  • Sara L. replied 2 years ago

    It looks great!  I think the proportions just look weird because of the way you're standing.  Sometimes pictures don't do an outfit justice.

  • Teresa replied 2 years ago

    I think you’re pulling off #2 as inspiration really well! Love your color palette.

  • Angie replied 2 years ago

    Super cute, 2019, and creative ...... and the hair looks fabulous this length too. 

    NICE that the haute hiking boots are navy like the hoodie. Fab match.

    Suz, how do you feel about wearing sheer black hose with this outfit? 

  • kellygirl replied 2 years ago

    SOOOO lovely! You nailed it, Suz!

  • Mirjana replied 2 years ago

    Lovely Suz, and I agree with Angie about hose , maybe because I prefer sheer hose generally.

  • karen13 replied 2 years ago

    Love this! And those boots! I tried them on last winter and quite liked them, but have been backing away from heels over 1.25". And waving at my earring twin.

    'Owning it, Suz :)

  • Diana replied 2 years ago

    Cute and cozy!

  • Suz replied 2 years ago

    Coming right up, Angie

    This was actually my first choice but I was worried about commuting by bus in sheers. Giving it a try anyway. Cross fingers for me. It's warm enough for them, at least. 

    Thanks, all. This is a great twist on the pencil skirt and graphic tee formula for cooler temps. 

  • Angie replied 2 years ago

    Ooooh! I like the sheer hose. Prettier! Subjective of course, since I gravitate toward the prettier outfit. But FWIW :)

  • Barbara Diane replied 2 years ago

    Cute look. Hope the nylons make it.

  • Angie replied 2 years ago

    It FINALLY dried up here today. Hope your side too.

  • The Cat replied 2 years ago

    You look gorgeous, as always. Great outfit for a bus ride--very chic as well as comfortable.

  • Janet replied 2 years ago

    It’s not often that an outfit with a pencil skirt looks cozy, but you’ve managed it. You all are making me kind of want to try a skirt with some stompy boots, but my skirt inventory is rather summer-centric. Uh, and I have spent all day today in gear without intending too, oops. ;-)

  • Cardiff girl replied 2 years ago

    Looks great but also very wearable.

  • Helena replied 2 years ago

    So cute Suz!

  • Mirjana replied 2 years ago

    Fantastic with the sheer hose, love, love.

  • Bijou replied 2 years ago

    I love this, especially with the sheer hose. Those boots are great, I can imagine that you can (and do) walk for miles in them.

  • jussie replied 2 years ago

    What a trendy casual outfit. I also like your hair like this! But if it’s driving you nuts it’s gotta go....

  • Suz replied 2 years ago

    I prefer it with sheers, too, and they held up!! :) Amazing. 

  • Joy replied 2 years ago

    Fun. Much prefer the look of the sheers. Not as heavy

  • Firecracker replied 2 years ago

    Great outfit, Suz! I do like the sheers. You wear pencil skirts so well!

  • anne replied 2 years ago

    Love it, and specially with the sheer hose

  • Jane replied 2 years ago

    Lovely! The sheer hose make it lighter.

  • Adriana replied 2 years ago

    Yea. Better like this. I know what you mean, walking and wriggling to get those hose wear they belong again.

  • Windchime replied 2 years ago

    Wonderful outfit—clever to mix kitties and animal print! Seeing this with dark and sheer hose next to each other is instructional. I almost always grab my black tights to wear with skirts/dresses in winter. But the sheer hose really set off your boots and give the outfit a lightness. Like you, I would worry about them not being warm enough.

  • Kathie replied 2 years ago

    So cute! And amazing the difference the shears make. Thanks for taking the second photo for all of us to see.

  • Style Fan replied 2 years ago

    Love the boots!  I tried those on earlier in the winter.  Very comfy.  I like the sheer hose outfit best but both are great.  Kitties are so cute.
