This winter I changed up my wardrobe a bit to include shades of RUST.
Still wear a lot of grey and of course black, however thought the golden browns
fit in well and brought color and warmth - although still neutral/natural - to what
was becoming my somewhat dreary 'twenty shades of grey' closet.
I'd also bought the lovely taupe wrap coat whilst in ZARA in London, and the
camel coat at H&M, so adding warmer colored sweaters seemed the way to go
This rust color, more dressy cowl neck, I wore to dinner on board the ship as we
headed to the Western Sahara desert in October - it was a bit more dressy and
worked well for evenings with a black trouser or silky printed skirt. I pinned on a
favorite brooch rather than dangling necklaces. . . . . .
The neutrals - classic naturals.
. . . . . . . and then there's this gorgeous chunky sweater - found this week in the
clearance sale at Target for just $17! Of course I didn't go there looking for
clothes but this was on a mannequin with black pants and caught my eye!
It ticked all the boxes - rusty gold, loose crew neck and longer length, with
very long sleeves to roll up or cover the wrists on cold days, and with just a little
shaping knitted in to make it non-baggy looking. It's extremely light and feels
awesome on - don't think it will itch - and goes with my reddish hair!
Anyway it was tossed into the cart along with the items I was really there to buy!
Have you read this book? If you enjoy classical music as I do, you will find
this is a wonderful true story written by Korean violinist Min Kym.
I grabbed this at the Dollar Tree store and must say it's been a great read.
While talking about the color rust I have to share my hairstylist Suzi's
'babies' (she's given me permission to post their picture).
Roxy the miniature Schnauzer and Lucy the Goldendoodle were at the
salon on my recent visit - so well behaved and of course adorable.
They posed for me. . . . . . and made me wish I had a doggie of my own!
Hope your weekend is fun, as ours has been so far.
Dogs were also in the spotlight for us last evening when we
spent a couple of hours at our local theatre watching the
English play, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.
It also included a handsome 'rusty' Golden Retriever named
Sandy - much admired for his acting skills during his brief appearance.
BTW - I'm actually a cat person, my favorite being rusty colored
'marmalade' kitties, although I've never had one that color of my own!
