Curated: Plaid shirtdress, fishnet tights, platform booties, and a felt fedora

Spotting this swingy little plaid flannel shirtdress was a “love at first sight” moment for me, dear readers!!

For my hubby, though??  Not so much!!  A couple of posts ago I mentioned that Robin has been hitting it out of the sartorial park on my behalf with a bunch of cute finds for my fall/winter wardrobe.  But this H&M dress is all on me; I picked it out on my own…and apparently, I’m adoring it on my own!!

I’m not exactly sure what he dislikes about it – and hey! maybe these photos will change his mind! – but Robin could only shake his head at my choice of outfit for our (probably) last road trip of the season.  I, on the other hand, am super excited about a piece that’s versatile enough to also work as a lightweight coat over leggings or jeans…or even another dress.  Plus, it has pockets!! 😁

It could very well be that my hubby will like it better styled as outerwear, but it’s always worthwhile pointing out that I wear what I want.  I value his opinion, but that doesn’t mean I’ll choose my outfits based only on his input.  Dress to please yourself…it’s the one and only rule when it comes to curating a confident personal style!!

      We had a lovely looong weekend, dearest Nancy…it was Canadian Thanksgiving!! The weather was mild and sunny, so we even managed to go for one more drive with the Solstice's top down to celebrate – woohoo!! XO

    I love this outfit! It looks great on you! Also, I love your hair! It's a great colour and looks cool. It's so true that we should dress to please ourselves-now that I'm 40 I finally am over worrying about what others think of me and my style! XXX

      I'm definitely past caring whether someone likes what I wear (or what I do with my hair!)…but compliments are always nice!! Thank you so much, Sasha…and I hope you'll visit again soon!! ☺️

    We can't always please our men with how we dress. My husband would love it if I stopped being so wedding to sensible shoes. Why don't I wear more sexy heels? He can ask that since he doesn't have to walk in them. I tell him it's for his sake. I may be significantly shorter than he is, but he's a very short guy himself. If I wear heels and bring myself close to his height, it just emphasizes his own diminutive height. I'm doing him a favor (although he says he doesn't mind).

      I wear heels almost exclusively, dearest Rachel…and after so much practice, I rarely find them uncomfortable anymore. That being said, I choose higher heels because I prefer the way they look on me versus flats; what my husband prefers comes second!! 😉

    I forgot to add, I love your sort of grunge-sexy look here. There is a modernized 90s vibe here. Your husband must at least love the fishnets. I know mine would.

      I just asked him…and he said yes, he gives the tights a thumbs up!! 😁
