The classics

My head is still in the clouds after last night's Eco Chic Design Award show.  I can't really begin to express how excited I was to have an opportunity to be there, but also to sit in the front row. 


I did take lots of pictures, some of which have made it to my Instagram feed, but I'll post the others when the weekend comes and I can write up the event properly.  Feel free to pop over and look on my feed @imanorbyah if you're curious. (By the way, did you notice my new social media buttons? I think I need to make them smaller, don't you?)


But moving onto the topic of this post...do you know those mornings when you look in your closet and you're like I don't know what to wear??? I realize expressing that sentiment as a major dilemma for my morning sounds shallow, but so be it.  I couldn't think.  In hindsight, I think those mornings usually are a result of feeling overwhelmed with so much to do rather than feeling uninspired.


Well, I had one of those mornings last week.  Like if I actually tried to feel inspired and try a bunch of things on, I might end up with a whole new floor-drobe.  I just needed to get to school to deal with the stuff that was overwhelming me.  So I had to think quick and I really didn't have time to pick up lots of clothes and hang them up again. 


Then I had a moment of clarity.  I had kind of been wanting to wear my Five Stones Vintage maxi skirt from Etsy again.  It has such a wonderful spinnability.  What better way to style a dramatic skirt like this one but with the neutral colors white and cream?  


It's such a sophisticated pairing, don't you think?  And with just a hint of blue from my Shoemint loafers and my new green jade earrings (a sweet birthday gift from the hubby and kiddos), I was ready!


TGIF (nearly!)

You look smart and interesting. I just got a skirt like that for Christmas, only it is split into PANTS! I'm so in love with it. VERY comfortable.
