The neighborhood ladies Christmas Lunch is today and this is what I’m wearing. I love the Frances cami in this Moroccan Blue and I was finally able to purchase the Constellation Cardi on ebay. The pants are actually some cropped wide leg wool pants from the Gap a few years ago and I’m finishing off the outfit with my new Loubies.


I was inspired by Joyce this morning to get out of my work-at-home sweats and layer on some “real” clothes.

Here’s my Polyvore.


WAH OOTD by audreybella featuring J Crew


And here’s my IRL…I have a turtleneck, the Pewter Rosette Tee, Cashmere Argyle Sparkle Cardigan and the Velvet Eden Blazer.

I’m glad I changed clothes.

Our neighborhood ladies go to lunch every month. I go every once in a while only because I’m one of the only 30-something’s. Most everyone else is late 40s and up but it’s still fun and you get to hear all the neighborhood gossip.

I put tights on first but I don’t think I pulled it off so I’m going bare-legged.

With Tights…

Without Tights
The shoes – Love these…the back is so cool. It changes from purple to blue…sooo pretty. (Although I wanted these so badly I didn’t size up in them. Just a teeny bit tight on the left.)

Blouse: Leifsdottier Gathered Top (I didn’t realize it was so sheer, I think more so with the flash.)
Skirt: J Crew Deco Shirred Skirt
Tights: Anthropologie-Eloise Mullion Tights
Shoes: Heartbreak Cutout by Nanette Lepore
Necklace: Faux Pearl w/Chains – Saks Off 5th

What do you think? Tights? No Tights?

I love these skirts. The Terra Paisley Mini is the same style as the Deco Shirred Skirt and the Shirred Wool Skirt. I like the Terra Paisley and the Deco the best because I can wear them all year as opposed to the Wool skirt. I hope J Crew comes out with more for year-round wear.

Here’s what I wore to work yesterday.

Ring – I love love this ring. I bought it in the Shore Pink because they didn’t have the gold in-store but I like the color of it a lot better than the gold (from what I’ve seen online).
