OOTD: Casual Festive Fair Isle

LOTS to celebrate today :)

The first COVID-19 vaccinations were given to Seattle healthcare workers on the front-lines this morning ..... 

24 years of marriage to my soul mate.....

Wearing boots for the first time since March.....

Naked skin is rash-free....

Sam and I stayed dry on our walk.....

2 more weeks of 2020......

Today was a regular WFH day with errands and doggie walks, all on foot and in the city. The Fair Isle jumper was a thoughtful gift from a Fabber, and is fun to wear at this time of year. Dutch orange Christmas!

The rest in my usual mix of old and new, trendy and classic, tailoring and fluidity, lots of colour, white footwear, shiny pearls, crisp polish, extreme comfort, and Sam in tow. 

Straightened my hair for a change. 

COVID continues to ravage the US and we are still in partial lockdown. Life is very restricted, and will get a little tougher before things look better in the Spring and Summer. But there is light at the end of the tunnel. Hanging in there a little longer. Onward we go! 

Thanks for looking :)

    Gorgeous outfit Angie, you are the Queen of Colour !  And congratulations and Happy Anniversary to you and Greg.
    And yes hang in there re the restrictions.  We have had an extended period of very tight restrictions and we do now seem to have things under control and are slowly returning a new normal.  It is great news about the vaccine but I am wondering how people feel about a vaccine that has been created so quickly and without extensive testing?  I have to admit I feel a little anxious about it, but I am not in the high risk group and I think it will be awhile before it's offered to my age group. 

  • Angie replied 1 year ago

    Thanks, Debs. Glad Australia is doing so well! The vaccine has been very tricky business. I'm positive, and will also be one of the last groups to be vaccinated.

    Beautiful outfit and colors on beautiful you. Sam is such a sweetie. He needs a coordinating jumper or a blue coat. He looks ready to open his presents wearing that festive collar.

  • Angie replied 1 year ago

    Joy, Sam has a matching turquoise jumper! Thank you :)

  • suntiger replied 1 year ago

    Happy anniversary, vaccine day, and color combo :)
    Love the turquoise coat!

  • Bonnie replied 1 year ago

    Your new Fair isle jumper looks perfect for you. You have all of the right items in your wardrobe that work with it. I hope you have a lovely anniversary celebration with Greg and Sam this evening.

    Suntiger, it's a great coat. I find turquoise versatile. It goes with my red, navy, citron, pink and orange!

  • unfrumped replied 1 year ago

    Genius color combinations. How great is that.
    Happy Anniversary!

  • Angie replied 1 year ago

    Roxanna, that's high praise, thank you. And YES to the combo of both brights. That's why I believe you can't see colours in isolation.

    Unfrumped, Slim cat and Nikki, thank you!

    kkards, Fair Isle with jeans and refined boots - just for you. 

    Sal, this time next year, our world will be normal :)

    Lovely happy colors!  
    A big happy anniversary to you and Greg!
    I also wore my boots for the first time two days ago!  So fun to get out seasonal items that I missed wearing.  
    I love looking at little Sam!  Thank you for including him in your outfit posts.

  • Jaime replied 1 year ago

    What a great day and spectacular outfit to match. You are the very picture of optimism and energy!
    Happy Anniversary to you and Greg!

    Happy anniversary to you and Greg!
    Love the sweater -- what a beautiful, happy, delicious color!

  • Cee replied 1 year ago

    I'm alive... BARELY !

  • cjh replied 1 year ago

    Happy anniversary to you and Greg. You look beautiful. It’s a great day for sure. Lots to celebrate.

    I can’t wait for vaccinations to come. Most hopeful that my m-i-l will be receiving hers soon. From what I’m reading, senior assisted living people may be getting them soon, within the month. She says she’s waiting with her arm hanging out the door, ready for the shot, as soon as they can get it. Neither she nor we are the least bit afraid because she has been stuck in her building, under good care, since last March 13. We talk to her every day, have seen her from a distance, but it’s difficult.

    As soon as it’s available to us, DH and I will both be taking it. And as soon as possible thereafter, we’ll head for Colorado to see our daughter and her husband and our two little grandsons. 

    I am not worried about the vaccine.

  • Firecracker (Sharan) replied 1 year ago

    Beautiful, Angie! You look so great in that shade of orange.

  • Gigi replied 1 year ago

    Masterful ensemble with the blue coat! I love it! I'm also a sucker for a large cuff on jeans.

    Happy anniversary!

  • Suz replied 1 year ago

    Happy Anniversary, Angie and Greg!! And Sam, I know it's hard, but don't you hog all the attention. They want some for each other today!! 

    SO glad you get to mark your anniversary with this stellar news about the vaccine. Not to mention a fab outfit! You must make people super happy, just to see you on the grey street! 

    Hurray for light at the end of the tunnel!! 

  • Runcarla replied 1 year ago
