  1. I love all of your outfits, especially the long skirt. I'm trying to get myself into long skirts but not brave enough yet. Soon.

  2. Serene, all of these outfits look like "you". It's great to have variety and change up your look! I love that necklace, that's kind of your signature piece?

  3. Congratulations on your evolving style! I understand exactly what you're saying. I vacillate between fearing that I fall into ruts -- TOO consistent in my style -- and feeling like I'm too all over the place if I try something new. We all grapple with that, I think.

    I LOVE the colorful new you reflected in that fabulous print dress (2nd picture) and awesome print top (3rd picture). And I'm seriously lusting after the shoes (oh, the shoes!) in the fourth picture.

  4. You are elegant, friend, and your look fabulous in every picture here. I love the pants from TJ MAXX...they are amazing...and fit beautifully. I have been through many closet moments like you describe...but I am now trying to develop a process that will make these moments fewer and far between. I hope to blog about the process later in the summer...around blogoversery time. But you look great and shouldn't question your decisions!!

  5. I love that your outfits aren't one particular "style" but instead reflect who you are and how you're feeling. I think you look fabulous in all of these, but I especially love the trouser jeans with the tunic and that fabulous tassel necklace. LOVE!

  6. It's all about evolving and change and diversity, in my book anyway! It's part of the artist in me. Love to see you change, of course very glad you are loving color now! Ain't it fun? Love--me

  7. I like the necklace you've made. I find I don't worry overmuch about having a signature style...for me, its about experimentation and keeping things lively for DH and my students. Why be predictable?

    I used to have the same idea about neutrals.


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! ~Serene
