    Looks great. Wine loafers for wine tasting! I'm jealous that it's warm enough for you to wear loafers.

  • Janet replied 6 years ago

    Love those shoes! You look comfy and casual stylish.

  • Sara L. replied 6 years ago

    I love those loafers! The stripes and green scarf look perfect.

  • Diana replied 6 years ago

    Looking good! The loafers are GORGEOUS.

  • Amy replied 6 years ago

    Perfect, Anna. Love those loafers, especially.

  • Girl X replied 6 years ago

    Super cute! And, I don't know if this is something you're doing intentionally or if indeed you're about to get it cut, but this longer hair of yours is easily as lovely as your shorter doos.

  • Transcona Shannon replied 6 years ago

    OMG - the SHOES!!! Those are gorgeous - such rich colour and beautiful texture. And then you add some stripes and your fab green puffer and POW - great casual look!

  • Tina.b replied 6 years ago

    Perfect outfit for the wine tasting. Loving those shoes!!!

  • rae replied 6 years ago

    Great shoes!! Yes, this looks perfect - nice and relaxed, a little bit French, and still with the Anna touch.

  • rachylou replied 6 years ago

    You have the best loafers!

  • annagybe replied 6 years ago

    Thanks everyone. I don't think I like this though. I'm not sure if it's the burgundy and green reading Christmasy or it's just blah.I had a completely different outfit planned but the shoes wouldn't have worked for a standing wine tasting.

  • CocoLion replied 6 years ago

    I like it but think a different jacket would have dressed the look up a bit. I really liked the puffer with another recent outfit you posted. Just thinking of something more structured as the jeans are a bit unstructured. (Whereas the pencil skirt with the other outfit was very structured.)

  • Sara L. replied 6 years ago

    I can see how red and green could read Christmas, but these particular shades, burgundy and dark forest green, don't make me think of Christmas. The placement with them being so far from each other also helps take away the Christmas feeling.

    I really love the basics of it but won't comment on the purse and puffer as I don't think my eye is developed enough for that. Sorry you didn't feel fab.

    Is your original outfit black or navy? Could you just toss on your Isabel Marant jacket or your sharp-shouldered jacket for some added cool? What about that deconstructed leather jacket you wore to the meetup in December? Or, you could switch the pants out for your flirty full skirt...

    In general, I don't feel making a purchase when stressed or in a rush is a good idea.

    I agree that this outfit is a little more mainstream than your usual outfit, but hardly anyone else in Seattle would look at it and say, "that girl is dressed in such a boring way." Rather, they'd be thinking to themselves, "she looks nice. I wonder what she thinks about this Pinot Noir?"

  • Caro in Oz replied 6 years ago

    Not sure but have you toned down your clothes to try to fit in? Is that why you aren't feeling great? I'd try to work out what is going on & use it as a learning experience:)
    ETA Love the dress though.

  • Joy replied 6 years ago

    Oh, my! I can't get past those gorgeous shoes!!

  • Sheila replied 6 years ago

    Anna, yes, the dress is cool BUT YOU are so cool yourself that you could go to this winetasting naked...well maybe not naked, how about wearing a brown paper bag...and then charm the pants off of anyone you might meet there. Yes, you are totally off the chart when it comes to social skills. You are an amazing lady.

    However, I know all too well the distress of feeling socially inept because I just did not feel right in what I was wearing. What about a third option? Like deciding to swing by the winetasting venue and then faking another event that you have to get to..just in case everyone else is dressed to the nines. Or heading home right after work, changing into your workout clothes and going to the gym. But do these things on your own terms, not as a reaction to some ideal in your head that you're supposedly not living up to. OK, I'll stop rambling here...Good luck, you are amazing.

  • Sarah A replied 6 years ago

    Not really helpful, but I love your usual avant garde style. I think this is a little more mainstream.... which I think is totally great for the occasion. If you decide later to get the dress and rock it that's awesome. But for now I hope you have a fun night what ever you decide to wear! :)

    Oh, I have had that feeling and you look fine, so you know it is just your brain running away with you. Take deep breaths. No one is thinking about it the way you are.
    Agree don't make purchases or changes based on brief mood swings--there's a whole concept about that, that every day we have these..ideas, feelings, ups and downs and they don't mean anything in the big picture so it's important to kind of step back and realize that and realize in a few moments it will pass.

    Maybe this outfit is not as cheerily or brightly colored? But that is not much of a drawback at a wine tasting. Cozy and casual, not overly done or prissy is what I recall were some of the goals, and I think you've got that. Beautiful shoes!
