Ho-Hum

This outfit that I wore last Thursday is based on this pin, here.  But, there’s something about my version that doesn’t strike the right chord.  I think that the original is a more dressy outfit.  My khaki’s are a more casual style and fit and my black top is a basic v-neck sweater as opposed to a silky/blousey top.  My necklace is more simple and streamlined, too.  I was really cold that day, too.  I spent most of the day at my desk under a fleece blanket.

My outfit on Saturday was ho-hum, too.  It was based on this outfit pin, here, but I had to make it weather appropriate.  I don’t have a necklace with coral flowers so I went with a magenta statement necklace.  I also went with brown shoes instead of sandals and my bootcut dark wash denim jeans.

I snapped a quick picture but they’re very underwhelming so I don’t think you are missing out on anything by my not sharing.

Blazer+Scarf

Tuesday was warmer than usual but I was chilly and wanted and outfit that was warm and comfy.  While browsing my Pinterest boards outfits like the two above kept jumping out at me.  There were several more on my boards that combined a blazer, oversized scarf, and jeans.  That was just the type of outfit that I was in the mood for.  I’ve included the two above because they both feature a similar colored blazer.

I started with my khaki colored blazer and then picked out a scarf.  I chose this scarf because it is oversized but it’s not my red blanket scarf that I tend to wear the death out of this time of year!  I really like the color purple and once I had selected the scarf I chose to go with a three-quarter purple button-up underneath instead of a white dress shirt.  I chose my dark wash skinny jeans because I wanted a more dressed up look than my distressed jeans provide.  Lastly, I went with gold accessories and brown ballet flats to finish off my outfit.  I really liked this outfit.  My hair is a little wild in these photo’s because I didn’t wash it– I just sprayed in some dry shampoo.  Before lunchtime I had pulled it back into a ponytail, though.

I’ve mentioned before that with my new schedule I am off on Wednesday and Sunday.  Because of my mid-week day off Thursday can often feel like a second Monday.  I sometimes stay up too late on Tuesday night because I don’t have to get up early on Wednesday and then it throws of my wake/sleep schedule for Thursday.  Also, I can often be a bit sluggish getting into the work groove on Thursday mornings.

My outfit is based on several pins (1,2,3,&4) but mostly this one, here.  I’ve done many iterations of this basic outfit before, too: orange sweater, tan or khaki pants, scarf, and gold-toned accessories.  The one small detail of this specific combination is the addition of leopard print ballet flats.

Friday morning’s always have a buzz of excitement about them because most people are excited for the weekend.  I had picked out a dress, tights, and cardigan combination but I didn’t feel like wearing it.  I was chilly when I woke up and I didn’t want to have to fuss with my outfit.  Instead, I opted to go with something more casual and fuss-free.

This outfit isn’t based on a pin it’s just a creation based entirely on comfort.  I picked out the long-sleeved striped henley shirt first, my most comfortable pair of boot cut jeans, and then added an oatmeal comfort for some more warmth, a tan belt and knock-off Sperry’s to complete the look.  I was tempted to go with a purple eye shadow look but instead I went with a dark brown eye look and purple on my lips.  This outfit isn’t anything ground breaking but I was at ease.
