It's a little intimidating to consider putting together something inspired by one of super-chic Angie's personal outfits. But seeing this coral blazer and black polka dot top with jeans...well, it was too perfect a way to try wearing my sorta-fancy-seeming blazer in a more casual Friday compatible manner.
I did not even try to get anything like the apple-green eyeglasses or sky blue purse into my mix. I kept it really straightforward.
Coral blazer (JNY), $6.19/wear
Short-sleeved black polka dot top (Liz Claiborne/JCP), $5.00/wear
Bootcut jeans (thrifted, Kohls), $0.47/wear
Black buckle flats by Me Too, $2.82/wear
Gold fish charm necklace (Ann Taylor), $3.86/wear
Outfit total: $18.34/wear
My touch of visual interest/whimsy was this fish charm necklace. That was enough for me.
This polka dot top is tied for Shirt MVP #4 in the Work the Wardrobe Challenge with four wears.
If I can move away from this ocean theme for a moment, this male red-winged blackbird is sporting a similar color combination...although he doesn't look very happy about it, does he?

In other news...Today has been the best day yet, pain-wise, since my surgery. I'm still taking a lot of painkillers, but not the maximum dose every single time, and I have been able to tolerate sitting at a desk chair better than before. I still came home about an hour early and am now feeling very tired and ready to practice my Coffin Pose for a while #kidneystoneyoga
