Adrienne Vittadini ankle boots (old), Chanel wallet on chain
We were blessed this weekend with mild temperatures – while some locals reveled by dining al fresco (didn’t think it was that warm!), I took advantage and wore this to lunch with friends. Alas, it was short-lived and the weatherproof boots were back on for today’s storm.
This skirt is actually part of a summery 2-piece set (last posted here), but the twill material is nice and thick for cross-seasonal wear. To keep it from rubbing and riding up my tights, I added my trusty slip skirt.
Adrienne Vittadini booties have been my favorite. They’re comfortable and sturdily made with some traction on the soles. It’s a shame I’ve only ever seen residual sizes at Marshalls, sample sale and other discount sites – I have no idea where the brand normally distributes its collection! Here’s a mid-heel ankle boot by AV currently available in leather (or suede at half the price here), in sizes 6+.
A basic black turtleneck tee has been on my shopping list for months. I thought it would be the quickest item to check off, but wrangled with chokingly tight, giraffe-length (despite being folded), or pilling-prone variations before I found this one from H&M;. The thin jersey is soft and comfy, plus you can’t beat the price. An XS fit me well except the sleeves are a little too long, but can simply be scrunched up or hemmed.
