I wore this outfit to work on Tuesday.  These green skinny khaki’s are from Old Navy.  They are non-maternity and I don’t know how in the world they still fit, but they do !! and so I have them on a heavy rotation.  It was a bit chilly that morning so I broke out this thin orange sweater from storage.  I love the color in the Fall and it was perfect for the weather.  I didn’t want to wear ballet flats so I went with these brown Oxford style shoes.  My ankles were cold and I had to wear socks even though I think it looks kinda silly.  On one hand I thought that this outfit looked good but then on the other I thought (and felt) like a giant pumpkin.

Lately I haven’t been pre-planning my outfits.  I really should get back in to the habit because I think that I come up with outfits that look and feel good as opposed to feeling overwhelmed at the possibilities and spending a lot of time in the morning searching through my drawers and closet only to find out that my idea doesn’t work outside of my head.

That’s sort of what happened to me on Friday.  I had decided that I wanted to wear my kimono scarf shirt thing.  Even though I wore it with a white t-shirt, skinny jeans, and a pendant necklace last time I still wanted to wear it with a white t-shirt this time.  But, I couldn’t find my short-sleeved white t-shirt.  It is possible that it could be in the laundry basket but I’m not sure.  So, I had to come up with a new plan.

Although I wasn’t too fond of the outfit and felt sort of off the whole day, I had to put clothes on my body to go to work.  I ended up going with an orange-y t-shirt, dark wash cropped jeans, and gold ballet flats.  This time around I tied the front two ends of the shawl to make it more of a “shirt” and less of a topper/completer piece.

I was excited to do something more colorful with my eye makeup that morning.  It doesn’t really show very well in the photo but I did go with a mauve/burgundy/plummy eye look.  But, I didn’t really do anything to my hair.  That’s been the trend lately– I just haven’t wanted to get out the heat styling tools in the morning because it’s been hot and it’s time-consuming.  In this photo my hair is still a little damp.  Later than morning I ended up pulling it up into a quick and messy bun.  I should really think about getting a more Summer-friendly hair do.  Suggestions?

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.
