WooHoo!

I mentioned in my last post that I had a goal of doing my hair, makeup, and wearing a cute outfit all on the same day.  So, last Friday I was selected to attend a quarterly round table meeting with my boss’ boss and represent my team.  So, naturally I wanted to look more polished and professional than I do on an everyday basis.  That’s sort of the great thing and the worst thing about working in a call center– no one see’s you so if your hair is sticking up in all directions and there’s toothpaste crusted on your shirt it can be your own secret.

I started with navy trousers and then added this printed blouse.  It’s new and I thought that it paired really well with these pants then to keep it more Summery I chose a yellow cardigan.  I added an oversized gold watch and navy pumps to complete the look.

I mentioned in a previous post that I recently bought some new clothes and one of the items that I bought are a pair of flowered pants.  I was super-excited to wear them as a nod to the first day of Spring.  I had planned to wear them with another new item, my chambray shirt, but the look didn’t come together quite like this.  Instead, I paired them with a sleeveless teal shell that I got for Christmas and my navy blue boyfriend cardigan.  I had some issues with what shoes I wanted to wear and in the end I didn’t really have the time that I wanted to decide or try other options because I would have been late to work.

I felt pretty great in the outfit, but after looking at the photo I think that the proportions are a bit off.  I think that I look top heavy and something with a slimmer silhouette would have been better.  Oh well.

Substitution

This is not exactly the outfit that I had planned to wear Monday evening but this is what I ended up wearing.  I had a different outfit planned but when it didn’t work out I grabbed this dress that I had slated for Wednesday’s class.  I had picked out my brown blazer to go with it and I had in mind to do nude legs and my cognac brown pumps.  But, in the end I did not go with the brown blazer.  Instead, I went with this mustard-y colored open front cardigan and then added a belt to tie in the shoes.  I added gold accessories and called it complete.  It’s not one of my favorite outfits and I accidentally grabbed those shiny/sheer hose again.  Oh well.
