Presidential

Posted by writergrll. Comment (0).

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. 🙂

Sport’s Tee’s

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.”

Mid-Week Trousers

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.
