Happy President’s Day! That’s not really a thing that people say, but who cares. Today is Monday and a lot of people had the day off, but not me or my students. My college does observe President’s Day but because the M/W classes missed a day of instruction for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day it is being observed tomorrow, Tuesday.
This morning to work I wore this silky shell with a navy blue boyfriend cardigan, dark wash skinny jeans, and red ballet flats. But, for work I had a different idea in mind. I paired it with a black pencil skirt, royal blue blazer, and black pumps. I wanted to go with royal blue and gold earrings but I couldn’t find the back to one of them so I was forced to go with red and gold earrings, instead. I also opted for my oversized gold watch, a subtle grey smoky eye, and matte red lipstick.
Here are some other ways that I’ve styled this presidential red, white, and blue sleeveless blouse:
As you can see, weirdly enough I’ve never done this shirt with my royal blue blazer! I’ve done it with a red blazer, black blazer, grey cardigan, and a black cardigan. I have also, oddly, never done it with a skirt. Until today. 🙂
Yesterday I went with a casual outfit. I was also able to dress in less layers since the sun was shining and we had a high in the 60’s. I didn’t have a pre-planned outfit and when I asked my husband what I should wear he said “Indian’s.” Well, I only have one Cleveland Indian’s shirt so that is what I went with.
This time around I paired it with my distressed boyfriend jeans, a casual grey cardigan, white Converse sneakers, and a silver belt to pull it all together. I like to sleep in an extra 30 minutes on Saturday’s so my hair went back into a ponytail and I called it a day!
Here are the other ways that I have styled this very same shirt. At this point, I think that I am getting close to running out of ways to wear it “different.”
Wednesday’s outfit was going to be a silky blouse, grey skirt, and royal blue blazer but I didn’t feel like wearing a skirt and I’ve worn the blue blazer and grey skirt recently so I went in another direction. This outfit is based on this pin, here. I did a dressier version with burgundy trousers instead of skinny colored jeans and going with pointy-toed black pumps. My blouse is short-sleeved so I added a black cardigan over top. I thought that the black cardigan helped tie in the black pumps.
Thursday I went with another comfy and cozy outfit. This time around I paired a white sweater with khaki trousers and a polka dot infinity scarf. Lastly, I went with my newest brown shoes. Although I’m not so sure that you can tell, this outfit was based on this pin. I don’t think that I captured the right vibe.
