Today's outfit was inspired by a little edginess that I wanted to impart, more than anything to blend in (or not, as the case may be) a bit with the clientele. And I really wanted to wear pants. My top is a beautifully cut graphic tee that is made out of recycled materials. Yay for "green" clothes! I found this particular designer, The Pursuit of Harmony, at a local boutique, and not only are their pieces reasonably priced, they're cool as hell. I haven't found anything new from them recently, however...which is a bummer to say the least.

Lovely blue Furla that I want to keep
Because it's also a wee oversized, I of course belted it. The neutral colors in the tee - tans with a small splash of mustard on the side (pun intended - tee hee) - gave me carte blanche with belt colors, but I settled on this burgundy double wrap belt to keep it on this side of autumn. I also like wearing it with a yellow and purple belt (yes, the two together), but I wanted to do a little something different today. I got oodles of compliments at work, too, so I must have done something right! I actually think it's because the double belt hits me perfectly at the narrowest part of my waist, and it did all sorts of wonderful things for my curves. And, of course, you can't go wrong with a nice-fitting pair of wide-leg pants.

Oh, and the party rocked! Too bad I was there in an official capacity - i.e., no adult beverages for me!
