Fashion Friday - Loud

It's been a while since I posted one of these Friday nuggets. But I had to capture the rarity of shopping downtown in the middle of the week.

The Man had a meeting downtown for a couple of nights earlier this week. He packed first thing in the morning of the meeting (he's been doing a fair bit of travelling again, so this is old hat to him), got into his car and then joined the legions of vehicles making the trek into the city. About an hour and a half later, I got a phone call:

"Uh, Karen, could you do me a favour?".

"Uh, what might that be?"

"Well, I forgot my bag ... with my laptop and all my work in it. Could you bring it down for me?"

At first I was exasperated ... driving downtown can be tricky at the best of times, but if you time it right it can be smooth sailing. I'm always concerned about making it back home in time to pick up the boy.

Of course, I then snapped out of it and realized that his hotel was right in the middle of the Mink Mile.

"Sure, I'll pick up the girl and bring your bag down."

I'm not in the position to be buying Prada, Gucci ... but it was fun getting some holiday ideas at Pottery Barn. Of course I wasn't going to go home empty-handed, so a visit to Zara was in order ...



Cuter on...



Yeah, a little loud, eh? I yell so well because my clothes often chime in with me. Here are a few other items I've purchased in the recent past...







And I guess I've always had a soft spot for paisley, as this has been in my closet for about 8 years...



But alas, not all is lost. I did pick up practical mom wear which I wore today because it was the coldest day of the season so far, brrrr ...



So the favour did cost someone somewhat... but at least I didn't go ballistic at Tiffany's.

Happy Weekend all!

I LOVE Your "loud" tops! SO totally cute, and they look great on you. I've been wearing black 70% of the time since I was about 15, so I'd photograph all my new shirts, but it would be "ooh, look at the ruffle on this black top" and "Ooh, that black top has really cool sleeves." The rest of them are red, or pink!
