OOTD/Review: Mint, Mustard, and Grey. And Another Tilly.
Where: My house. Boring.
Ease of Wear: (4.5 of 5 stars--5 being the most easy to wear.) Again with the Turner pants. I now own them in four colors. They are up there with my Pure Collection tie-waist trousers (last photo, also worn with *another* Tilly Sweater**, lol) as the best pants ever. I *do* own traditional pants, with proper closures, but it has been remarkably easier to just wear these ones instead. (I will give a shoutout to the pants I have made since they are tailored to fit me properly, but I only have two pairs that I have made, so they don't get a bunch of wear.)
The temperature outside is 17 F. So I am more than happy to wear the current Tilly Sweater, which was one of the sweaters I promised I would wear at this blog post. I am very happy to report it feels great, it is keeping me warm, and is a wonderful color to wear on such a cold day (gives me the feel of early spring).
**Can Boden give some other ladies a chance at having clothing named after them? Sophie, Tilly, Laura, Olivia...it is getting boring. May I suggest Dina?
Cool Factor: (4 of 5 stars--5 being the coolest.) The Nike shoes help up the score, but again, a very basic outfit for a very basic kind of a day.
Anecdote of the Day: Mardi Gras is Tuesday, but Mr. Dina's parents leave tomorrow. I love making gumbo, and they seem to like my version, so I will be spending the next couple of hours preparing it.
The 6 fits awesome, hitting right at my mid-hip. The neck doesn't constrict, and while there is little shaping in the garment, the wool is lightweight enough to be drapey and show a bit of the natural curve my body has.
especially at J. Crew, much to Gigi's discontent), but it is still present, and if you loathe that detail, stay far away.
Tilly Sweater. Navy and carnation are fully stocked. The mint is selling well.
Okay, have a great day, will be back with one last review tomorrow night (right before the sale ends) of my last wear of the weekend. (I will be wearing the French Knot sweater!)
