WIW-It's been a while.

It has been a long time since I have posted a What I Wore. My schedule doesn't mesh with anyone else's to try and get pics so I thought I would try the self timer button on my camera. Still working out the kinks and that's why my feet are cut off lol.

I like this outfit much better in person than in the pics. I feel so me in this. It has a bit of all of my favorite things. Comfy, casual, a bit of sheer, a bit of sparkle and a bit of fun with the sunnies. This outfit makes me feel a bit sporty, sassy and spunky which I like.

The top is grey with tabbed 3/4 sleeves and sheer trim around the scoop neck. The pants are a coral metallic which i'm not sure shows up in the photos. My Cons are silver lame and the shades are just fun. I much prefer bootcut to straight legs and the cut of the top emphasizes my hips and curves but I still have a very high happiness factor in this outfit.

    You finally had a nice day for an outside photo shoot. I have noticed that you haven't posted any WIWs lately. You surely accomplished your mission with this outfit! Pretty neckline detail and pants color. Love those silver sneakers, they are so fun and sassy.

    Thank you pil! It finally is a gorgeous day. Our weather has been less than lovely lately. :)

    Perfect casual, fun outfit! I You explain very well what you love about this look and all the elements are showing really nicely together! Your curves are lovely and I realIy can't see the issues you point at. The curved hem on the top is flattering. Bright, casual and fun!   Hope the weather continues to be good.

    YOU MADE MY DAY posting, darling Cheryl. You are such a sweetheart. 

    *happy dance*

    Both jeans and tee are a super flattering fit. And you know I love Chucks. And to see them in sci-fi silver on you, simply delights me. The sunnies are dazzling and so is your smile. Hug your doggies for me. xo

    How cool are those silver Cons! I think the top flatters your curves nicely, and I appreciate your detailed explanation of the outfit and resulting happiness factor. It's so nice to see you.

    So fun!! Your personality shines through. Love the bright cheerful jeans and the sci-fi Cons.

  • shevia replied 7 years ago

    Love the shoes, love the sunglasses, top and shirt are great, you look fab!

  • jackiec replied 7 years ago

    Thanks for taking the close up of the details - great! Love the metallic shoes and especially love your pants - so cheery!!!! YLF!!! I totally hear you on the self-timer - that's what I've been doing when the kids are at school & it's a bit tricky to line up....

  • kellygirl replied 7 years ago

    You look sassy and sporty. I really think that curved hem is flattering--it creates a softer line across the hips. I always feel like straight hems emphasize my hips. Great outfit and fun to see you again! 

  • cheryl replied 7 years ago

    Thank you so much Aida, shevia, jackiec and kellygirl. I've been sad that I haven't been very active on the board latelyso I figured I may as well try and figure out my camera lol. It's nice to post a WIW again.

    I love the curved hem of the top on you; it's very flattering to your curves. And what's not to like about red pants?

  • cheryl replied 7 years ago

    Thanks so much Laura :)
