Que Bella – Times Three

Goodness…I should really try to keep up with my Que Bella’s. These were from last week. As I purge my closet, I am getting really happy with what I have and being quite selective on what new items I pick up…like this dress. I’m wearing a Size 8 which is slightly loose in the waist but a better fit in the chest. Any smaller and I would have had to return it. I love my Mini-Brompton in Straw but kind of wish I had bought the larger one now. Diva, in her Zaggfolio, is a little heavy so she comes alone sometimes. And these shoes, Stuart Weitzman, have gotten a lot of wear in the month or so that I’ve had them. They are one of the best neutral/natural colored shoes I’ve found. When I first saw them they had a pink undertone to them but when I put them on they blended quite nicely with my skin tone.

I wore this to dinner out last Friday. This is the Tulip Ruffle Cami paired with the Postage Stamp Mini in Confetti Tweed. Oh, how I have been wanting this skirt FOR-EVAH! I just couldn’t bring myself to pay full price for it. Then it went on sale in the store several weeks ago but was still FP online. This skirt lingered in the sale section in my store in sizes 0, 2, 4 and one size 10. I almost succombed to the 10 and asked for an opininon from the Store Manager and she said NO WAY. I need at least an 8 but probably the 6. Love that she was so honest with me. She then started looking for either size in other stores and found an 8 for me. Again, I’m wearing my versatile Stuart Weitzman’s.
See all the beautiful colors in this tweed! Anything could go with this skirt.
This was a weekend errand outfit. I am getting a lot of wear out of my Linen Cable Knit Sweaters. Yes, they are sheer but I don’t mind layering with my Limited Seamless Camis. I have almost every color and they are so comfortable. I’ve been wearing them for years. The shorts are from the Factory Store and normally I don’t go out and about in 3-inch shorts, even to the grocery store down the road, but I loved the outfit so much I took a chance. The main reason for this outfit was my Soludos for J Crew Spearmint Espadrilles. I knew I wanted to wear them but struggled for a few weeks on what to pair them with. Of course, start with something truly basic, like White and Denim.
Thursday, I head into the office again and will be wearing my new purchase, the Mint Mini Skirt. I will post pics sooner than a week later. Promise! Oh, and the other colors of that skirt at a Royal-ish Blue and Canvas/Beige. There are only 3 skirts left in the mint at my store and my PS was surprised they were not online yet. Also, I saw the Mint Jardin Maxi Skirt and LOVE IT! I completely missed it last week and I think I only love it because it’s Mint colored. I prefer my mini over the Maxi (and Husband just told me a few days ago he doesn’t like the Maxi’s on me! Huh? NOW he has an opinion on my outfits).  Any-who…the maxi is a little too full for me but I would certainly consider that color on sale and MIW!
So, what have you been wearing?

    Wow that polka dot dress is perfection on you!!!

    I've always dismissed the confetti tweed mini thinking it's much too short, is it really only 17" long?

    You look great in the 3" shorts. The linen sweaters are so comfortable. White looks great on you. Do you dryclean it or put it in your washer?

    I love the jardin maxiskirt. The regular was overwhelming, I decided, so I'm trying the petite and see if it makes a difference.
