WiW: 10.17 - Playing it safe (alternative: a little boring)

I think the drab fall colours work to make this not the most interesting outfit in the world: I don't think the camera picks it up well, but there is a subtle plaid in this jumper dress.

I really am a fan of the fall colours: the oxlips (HAHA, iPhone error - oxblood) and the grey and the navy, but I am thinking it's too many darks. Maybe this dress with white and mustard next week??

Also, booties came and the tops are too wide for my narrow calves. Sigh. #firstworldproblems. :3

    Looks good again, Lyn*! It may be lower contrast than what you usually wear, but the rich wine color is good on you.

    I think you look great!  Sleek and chic.  We are almost twins today. :)

    Not boring at all. Love the red and gray together. I miss my Lyn style print though ;-)

    Love these colors on you, great for fall.  Too bad about the booties.

    To me you look elegant and sophisticated. But if you miss your trademark quirk factor, maybe this look is not 100% comfortable for you!

  • MuseumGal replied 9 years ago

    Not at all boring - rather subtly rich.

  • pil replied 9 years ago

    More subtle than many of your other outfits, but still fab. I really, really like this on you, Lyn*. Your Burberry was probably really nice with it.
