Such a waste. Such a sad, beautiful waste. Oh well, time to keep calm and pour myself another glass. On a side note...think I could photoshop that mess up and turn it into a piece of art?
I had not really been in the mood to do pictures this week. I still had not felt well, had been extremely tired, and just indifferent and lazy all around. Then last night, I stumbled upon this gem. Oh. My. Goodness. The All That Jazz collection made me swoon. The giraffe print skirt made me melt inside. The dress from the Up And Away collection needs to be in my closet. Alas, I sadly report that I do not, in fact, have anything like this lying around in my collection. It's a good thing I'm on a shopping ban my bank account doesn't agree with the prices of those items, or else I would be in trouble.
First off, I had three outfits that I wore to work this week that I particularly loved. I was quite surprised at the amount of comments that I received. The day I wore the blazer, just about every other person at my desk told me how nice I looked. Andy seems to think it was because something else was wrong (i.e. I had a booger on my face, etc). He could perhaps be right. All I know is that I had a great work week in terms of outfits.
Outfit number one was perhaps a bit too much grey. I liked the idea of the outfit, though. The skirt is one of my favorite pieces. The blazer outfit is probably my favorite work outfit to date. I loved the pearls and the pants are my favorite khaki pants. Although they are a serious bitch to iron. The last sweater was one that I had actually put in a box to be given away. Just about everyone I know has dug through that box and taken what they wanted. I realized this was still in there, and could not remember why I would ever want to let it go. Once again, just about every other person commented on how pretty the sweater was, and how the color was very complimentary on me. I am ever so glad that I rescued it from the give away box. I bought it years ago to wear out to dinner with a friend. I haven't worn it in at least 3-4 years. In any case, I warmly welcome it back into my collection.
For the rest of my outfits, I decided to focus on a few main pieces and just change up my shirts. I chose a dark pair of skinny jeans, my brown riding boots, feather earrings, my owl necklace, and my rainbow hat. Then I went through my closets and picked out shirts, a scarf, and sweaters that I thought would compliment each piece. I won't take the time to explain every single outfit, but there are a few of them that I'll comment on.
I really like this outfit. However, I think for once in my life I see the reason forthese. Seriously, these are a buzz kill for males everywhere. But to get away with wearing this to work, I feel it necessary.
I think so far this is my favorite outfit. Definitely high in the running to be worn tomorrow or this weekend at some point.
Feather earrings! I love them.
I'm a pretty big fan of this combo as well.
I bought this shirt last October to wear to Cincinnati for Andy's birthday. I haven't worn it since. I forgot how pretty it was. So many options for the weekend/next week!
Here is a better shot of the feather earrings.
