I don’t use the “navy” tag on this blog very much, since navy isn’t usually my first choice for neutrals and I don’t have much of it in my closet, but I guess I really should use it in reference to this shirt. I think of it as blue, but isn’t it navy?

Where’s the line for navy, anyway? Is it a question only of shade or also of saturation? I guess I could look it up, but I’d rather ask you.

(Please to ignore the my phone; the sticky note just has a to-do list on it. I make to-do lists on my phone, on my computer, on Habitica, and it still isn’t enough. It’s a wonder I get anything done.)

Anyway, I find myself grateful that this blog doesn’t have a “mustard” tag in addition to “yellow,” or I’d be here all day.

The beginnings of this outfit were discards from the weekend–before deciding on the tunic and leggings from yesterday’s post, I spent a long, indecisive time trying things on for the very important task of leaving the house to go grocery shopping.

However, a few of these pieces ended up together in the meantime, which explains how I was so coordinated first thing on a Monday morning.

I don’t usually have the wherewithal to come up with something like this right after I wake up anymore.

(You might have noticed the simpler outfits, and I appreciate your not saying anything negative about it. You have wonderful manners!)

Anyway, the tiny tie worked out and we haven’t seen it in ages, so sometimes initial failure leads to later success. A life lesson for us all, especially in regard to tiny ties.

This outfit was pretty much inevitable, I think. It was just a matter of time.

20151009-IMG_4929

It works, right? I mean, I think it does, and I’m okay if you don’t. Life is a rich tapestry!

20151009-IMG_4932

Honestly, it’s not that surprising a mix to have made, even though it felt really edgy when I was getting dressed this morning. Same-size florals, both with pink/yellow/orange. Like I said, inevitable.

did manage to keep from wearing my Labor Day Pow-Wow earrings, which itself feels inevitable every time I wear these pants.

20151009-IMG_4937

Those earrings, these pants, and these sandals. They make a very compelling case for themselves.

20150930-IMG_4875

Hmm, this button-front doesn’t layer under dresses as well as I hoped it would.

20150930-IMG_4879

Not this dress, anyway. I suppose I should be grateful that it doesn’t look any more absurd than it already does; it’s just a little poofy on top.

You can tell the weather’s cooling down when I start to haphazardly and/or desperately combine whatever pieces of clothing I think will fit and keep me warm. Sometimes it works out, and sometimes, well…at least the color combination’s nice, right?

I only have one photo of this outfit because my after-work grocery-shopping trip on Monday went long, and I had to contend with dim light when I finally got home. We have garlic and rice stick noodles now, though, so I think you’ll all agree that the sacrifice was worth it.

I swear on a stack of last year’s Good Housekeeping that I ironed this outfit vigorously before wearing it.

Of course, silk and linen aren’t known for their wrinkle-release properties, and I always have to tie up these pants so I can bike to work without getting chewed entirely to bits by the bike chain.

The bike chain which just got cleaned and re-greased by me, I might add, so it better continue to be on good behavior! No biting, bike, or I’ll have to start crating you again.
