Matched My Surroundings (Pics)

I ran errands at our nearby outdoor mall today, which is stunning! (#1) Seattleites - go to U-Village soon. Great vibe. Took the full length pics in a furniture store. (#2 - #4).

Managed to park and get there before the crowds....but it was BUSY by the time I left. Go early.

LOVE my new NAS maxi navy coat! Workhorse wardrobe essential.

Fractured toe 3 months in, and on the mend. Could manage my super hero boots reasonably comfortably. 

Hair is soft and very natural. No chemical treatment. No style really, despite a few non-descript layers. This is a quick blow dry. The front grows more slowly than the back. It has to grow four more inches. Patience is a virtue I am learning! 

I'm big into wearing bold solid statements this year - sometimes I throw in some classic pattern like a dot, stripe, check, or floral. 

My colour combinations guideline: "wear whatever makes me happy!" :)

I won't be around much till Monday. Happy Thanksgiving to those in the US. xo

    Oh my, you look glorious, just like your surroundings and your hair is progressing beautifully. Have a wonderful holiday break.

    This bold outfit is one of my favorites, you look gorgeous. So dramatic and bold, but with a dose of pretty. I would wear it in a heartbeat. Actually, coming to steal the fabulous scarf ;-)
    The surroundings look beautiful, gorgeous colours. What a treat to shop in an outdoor mall like this.
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

    How lovely that you still have fall foliage! And how lovely that you match it so well. Thanks for sharing this fabulous festive outfit, Angie. Happy Thanksgiving!!!

  • Suz replied 1 year ago

    Oh, beautiful! You really did match the leaves! The coat looks amazing! I like the scarf as well!  

    That's great news about the foot, too. It takes so long to heal but you are getting there. The boots look fantastic. 

    What a gorgeous and festive outfit. Enjoy! 

  • LJP replied 1 year ago

    Lovely photos all the way around ! I’m so envious of the beautiful fall scenery - we in full on winter here now . Love the navy coat and scarf against the bright colours - you’re making me crave some navy in my life !

  • Angie replied 1 year ago

    Such lovely compliments! Thank you. 

    Helena, blushing :)

    Dee, you are consistantly gracious with your words. Lovely you joined my forum!

    kkards, I can see you my polka dot scarf! 

    Vildy, :)

    Katerina, such awfully kind words, and I'm humbled to have inspired you! Thanks for noticing "the pretty" too.

    Nikki, I don't! On my shopping list...... 

    Xtabay and CarolS, always creative and sweet.

    Sarah, how NICE to see you chime in.

    Kathie, Seattle misses you. And thankful to have healthy hair.

    Suz, I can see you in the scarf and coat - and any of my navy items actually! ;) Good grief, the toe has been slow to heal. But finally, getting there. 

  • Angie replied 1 year ago

    LJP, thanks! Maybe you'll wear navy again - when you don't need to wear black to work anymore.

    We've managed to dodge the snow in the city. It's full on snow an hour away though. Buckets of it dumped on the mountains a few days ago. Autumn has been beautiful here! 

  • replied 1 year ago

    Wow- I'm jealous you still have bright leaves :) Love that coat on you and glad you're on the mend! Fab all round!

  • Irina replied 1 year ago

    Navy is my hero color, literally everything looks great with it.

  • ChristelJ replied 1 year ago

    What a terrific outfit. One of my favorites ever. Beautiful hair, too. Happy Thanksgiving.

  • lyn67 replied 1 year ago

    Wow, what a gorgeous fall scenery and your outfit,longer hair and genuine smile so fabulous! This is my favorite way to dress, to match my surroundings/weather/places-and this is probably also why I cannot do your brights that way you are beautifully and professional doing my surroundings are never that bright, I'm afrai!:-(.
    Happy Thanksgiving,  Angie&Greg (and all)! 

  • ANewMindset replied 1 year ago

    You are a stylish ray of sunshine!! I absolutely love this look!!

  • Janet replied 1 year ago

    Lovely, Angie! I adore fall color and this looks so appealing. Glad you’re still getting fall foliage — I just returned home from southern Utah, where the cottonwoods are glorious at the moment, but the leaves are all gone at home.

    That coat is stellar! And your hair is really coming along nicely. I confess I really love the natural color more than your former platinum, which was pretty too.

  • kellygirl replied 1 year ago

    You couldn't look more beautiful in those colors. SO divine! Happy Thanksgiving, Angie!

  • JAileen replied 1 year ago

    Gorgeous colors, on both the trees, and on you.

    We had weirdly warm weather in October, and our trees never got the signal to drop their leaves.  

  • Bonnie replied 1 year ago

    You look fabulously festive for the holidays. Have a fun day and some restful time off. 

  • nemosmom replied 1 year ago

    What a cheery, festive combination!! You look stunning, and I am loving your longer hair!

  • Jules replied 1 year ago

    WOW! So stunning! Lifted my spirits and reminded me of a favourite storybook about a talented tailor who eventually stands out by trying so hard to blend in :)

    Happy Thanksgiving to all those celebrating!

    Amazing as always! Color inspiration as always!

  • Sal replied 1 year ago

    You look vibrant and polished and happy! What a special look for a special person.

  • Eliza replied 1 year ago

    Beautiful look in a place that beckons, Angie. How fun to see how your brights play together. Your hair is so pretty ; grow outs take patience and helps to have it take the journey with so much cooperation.

  • Sally replied 1 year ago

    What a visual delight.  Its a real new take on Autumn instead of the usual muted colours, the bright red and orange go so well together.   Happy thanksgiving.   

  • Dana replied 1 year ago

    So cute! Angie, you always look so happy and brighten my day! Enjoy your time. 

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    I also envy your bright leaves.  I am trying to see the beauty of naked trees.  They look best when snowy or frosty at sunrise or sunset. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.

  • citygirldc replied 1 year ago

    You make me smile with all those beautiful colors. Happy belated Thanksgiving. XXXOOO, Naz

  • Angie replied 1 year ago

    Thank you all SO much! Your kind words are good for the soul. 

  • whidbeygirl replied 1 year ago

    Love University Village! As you say, the vibe is so great. Since moving off the mainland I hadn't been in quite a few years but went recently to check out the Allbirds store and had a chance to shop around again. It was super busy then, even mid-week. And, as always your color choices are fabulous. 

  • RobinF replied 1 year ago

    Your hair is really getting long! Growing out is such a waiting game but it's looking great. 

    Love the outfit - that coat is gorgeous. And the pretty weather! 

  • Inge replied 1 year ago

    Seattle in Autumn is just so stunning!! And so are you and your outfit! Every single item is gorgeous, but I'm especially loving how you paired those trousers with the booties!

  • Angie replied 1 year ago

    Thanks so much! Appreciate the kind words. 

    And yes - get to U-Village the next few weeks :) 

  • ANewMindset replied 1 year ago

    I am now on the lookout for a black with white polka dots scarf so that I can replicate the outerwear look with my black wool maxi coat! This is one of my all time favorite looks of yours. Thanks for the inspiration!

  • Angie replied 1 year ago

    I hope you find the scarf! 

  • Debbie replied 1 year ago

    I love the outfit and your hair! Stunning!

  • Angie replied 1 year ago

    Lovely to see you chime in, Debbie :)
