Another month, another set of adventures in the life of Me.
I really appreciate the Facebook comments about missing my posts. It really warmed my heart. I miss ya'll too. Admittedly life gets busy with two children at home; my 4 year old nephew, that I am raising along with my 20 year old daughter trying to decide where life will take her. Along with working a full time job outside the house at a local University. Bear (our 4 year old) has required some special attention over the last several weeks, then I was hit by a stomach bug and a bout of "Old Lady" syndrome with mother nature. If you get my drift. Not blog worthy I promise you. Ha!
I've snapped a few photos, but even that has been few and far between. Several weeks ago, I had a meeting with a room full of 'big wigs'. Here's what I decided to wear:
A photo snapped in the building's ladies room. So classy, right? Bad lighting, bad photo.
We've seen most of this before back in colder weather:
Alfred Dunner Animal Print skirt, Goodwill
Slim red belt - Salvation Army
Apt 9 black short sleeve blouse, with really cool ruffles you can't see because of the bad pic - recent Goodwill
Necklace - Goodwill
Sag Harbor heels - Goodwill
Red Jacket - Hand-me-down (from my Mom)
All Professional. ;-)
Another recent work outfit:
This was made on campus in front of a new art sculpture placed near my office.
Love this tribal print skirt from Cato's, a recent thrift purchase.
The brown blouse is 100% silk with no sleeves, hence the thrifted cover up cami.
Brown silk blouse, Ann Taylor Loft via Goodwill
Target belt via Goodwill brand new
Necklace - clearance deal from Rue21
My awesome Target sandals.
Since I haven't posted in a while, yep I wore the same skirt/blouse on another warm day to work.
Changed up the sandals and wore 3 new thrifted bangle bracelets.
I picked them up for 75 cents each. LOVE.
We've seen parts of this outfit before too. I wore the skirt in the winter:
I changed up the tops:
A newly thrifted black tank by New Direction found at Goodwill.
Tossed a NY and Company blouse (from Goodwill) over the inappropriate for work tank.
Belt - new from Goodwill
Skirt, Emma James via Goodwill
Necklace - Goodwill
Sandals - Goodwill
There you have it. A few of the outfits I've been wearing and REfashioned into still wearing it again. Hence my love of skirts. I can wear them with tights and boots in the winter; then sandals in the warmer weather. Which is cooler to me than dress slacks.
So I have a burning question for you.....
Do you prefer skirts or slacks for dressing up?
