Blogging Besties :: Black Jeans

The Blogging Besties series is the brain child of Alex @ The Cheerful Closet and Whitney @ Whitney à la Mode. In 2015 the series expanded to include Maricel @ My Closet Catelogue and me, Selah @ A Bibliophile’s Style. It’s based on the idea of “take one, pass it on,” but we’re passing on an element from another blogger’s outfit. It’s a fun challenge that inspires us to be creative!

We took a brief intermission from Blogging Besties last week, but the elements Maricel gave me to choose from were an oversized grey top, black velvet boyfriend blazer, black jeans and knee-high boots.”

This is another older one from last fall, but I loved the outfit so much I just had to save it! I pulled out the maroon of the tank and the blue of the necklace from the print on the trim of the kimono. I finished it off with a black hat, black skinnies, and booties!

Tank: Old Navy (similarsimilarsimilar)
Kimono: Forever XXI, thrifted (similarsimilarsimilar)
Jeans: LOFT (similarsimilarsimilar)
Booties: Forever XXI (similarsimilarsimilar)
Necklace: Old Navy (similarsimilarsimilar)
Hat: Leith (similar, similarsimilar)
Next week, Whitney can choose from the following elements: a kimono, maroon, a hat, or something with a fun trim!

Due to circumstances beyond my control, there will be no Blogging Besties post from My Closet Catalogue this week.

I apologize to all the readers of the other three ladies’ blogs. They had nothing to do with this and were informed of my oversight at the last minute so they couldn’t even create content of their own.

I hope this didn’t inconvenience anyone and I promise to do better next time. I’m currently wearing an oversized grey top, black velvet boyfriend blazer, black jeans and knee-high boots. So for Alex’s challenge next week, she can choose from any of the above.

Last week, Whitney looked fabulous in floral:

The prompts she gave me were “mustard, floral print, or a piece purchased in a bind”.

In all honesty, this was my initial reaction:

While on a trip to Old Navy, I stumbled across this mustard top in the clearance section, and thought “why not?”

I paired my new top with a bracelet in complimentary purple:

When I woke up to 52° F this morning, I decided a Fall look was in order as well!

Next week, Maricel can choose from summer-to-fall transition, complimentary colors, and “why not?”.

September 7, 2017: Family, Friendship, and Fandom!

If any of my readers are even remotely sci-fi inclined, please help us out! Go on Twitter and make some noise! We need Dark Matter to finish its story in 2 more seasons! Syfy channel is a bust, but maybe Netflix can pick us up?!

So I’ve been taking meetings with various production companies, looking ahead to my next project (hopefully not for another two years) and when the conversation turns to Dark Matter, the response from those I’ve met has been bewilderment and sympathy.  Solid ratings, a strong creative and modest licensing fee should have translated to a pickup and yet…

It’s strangely comforting to know that news of Dark Matter’s cancellation has left even industry insiders perplexed.

Upon further reflection, I think one of the issues may have been the rebranding.

Also, at the end of the day, beyond the action, adventure, shootouts and dazzling visual effects, Dark Matter is, at its heart, really about one thing: family.  It was the theme at the core of…
