    She's excellent. One of the best dressed, and best photos, I've seen on your blog! The townhouse architecture helps :)

    I also love her oxfords. I used to wear blue black oxfords like those and was probably the middle school weirdo; wonderful how enduring fashions return to trump trend.

    Like the whole look. But the shoes?…Are boots a better alternative or has that already been done? I love that the shoes are nicely worn and that they aren't black. So in the end, I love the whole look.

    Love it! Great to see she used a light brown belt instead of a black. It makes the outfit! Awesome shoes!

    I thought this was a pretty average outfit until I saw the unusual shoes. Their shininess and colour make them stand out nicely

    This is so great, I love everything about it. I like the volume of the cape and skirt, and the pockets make it just that much cooler. I like the stripes to break up all of the solid color, and the pop of color with the red belt is just perfect. I even like that flat shoes!

    this is great. for so many reasons.
    #1: belt color
    #2: pockets in the skirt!
    #3: i think she is an expert scarf-draper. i can never get that look.
    #4: yay for laced flats.

    but most of all… the stripey shirt. it's a great contrast to all of the solid colors, without neutralizing the pop of the colored belt.

    Surprising oxblood and tan coordinate with the brownstone. The striped blouse lends an air of vulnerability absent from black ensembles worn by blonde women. Well done to both of you.
