Utilitarian Monday

I hope this finds you with a good Monday going for you on top of a great weekend!  Sorry for not posting over the weekend - I took a mini-holiday to see one of my best friends up in Greenwich, CT, and we even got to go into NYC for dinner, which was so fun!  I love NYC - I have got some great memories associated with the city, and Saturday's just added on top of it - so, yes, I have a small romance with it :).  I don't think I could ever live there - I need to see trees (and apparently the ones in NYC are deadly!) and greenery and blue skies and I don't think I can go back to living in the cold for so long.  But I love, love, love going to visit it and have an adventure!

Today's outfit is really very simple.  I was just feeling like wearing something very basic and couldn't decide on a dress that fit the bill for me this morning.  Then as I was looking in my closet I saw this shirt that I love hanging and decided that I wanted to wear it instead of a dress.  I paired it with these olive brown pants to give it a utilitarian feel, and then finally added my beloved Tahari grey ombre heels.  I decided to keep accessories very simple today - just some long earrings, silver bracelets, and fish/cross necklace that I always wear.  A long necklace just wasn't working right.  I think it's because it just distracts from the embellishment already on the shirt.

Also, you will be seeing this version of the curly hair until Wednesday when I get it cut.  I'm still trying to decide what I want to do...I'm maybe thinking a long bob (because I don't want to go too short) with layers - if there is such a thing - with side bangs.  Full-on bangs just don't work right with my face. What do you think? Think a long bob with layers would look good curly/wavy/frizzy? We'll see!
