Hurray for winter's last gasp, bringing cool, rainy weather back to Coldville (after a week of sunny days with highs around 70) so I can replicate this outfit that I loved from the Fashionably Employed blog.
I feel like I nailed this one.
Navy cardigan (Kohls)+
Bright teal pencil skirt (JCP)+
Navy/teal striped T (Kohls)+
Navy scarf (Target)+
Tall cognac boots by Sam Edelman+
(Items marked with + are new for the Work the Wardrobe challenge. It's like your first birding outing of the year, when even the ubiquitous house sparrow counts as new for the year--it's easy to make quick gains.)
I have to admit, even though tall cognac boots are a fashion blogger cliche, they really worked in this outfit. Teal, navy, and cognac are a very appealing combination.
Verdict: It was a good thing I was bundled up a bit today because it was quite cool. There was a stiff breeze this afternoon when I left work, and when I got into the car, the radio guy said it was 43 degrees. Yikes.
It was a relatively quiet day at work today because my officemate is on vacation today and tomorrow (staying home, working on her house--one of those home improvement projects that make me glad to be a renter). But I had a nice amount of work to do, so the day went quickly. My quarterly reports that were due at the end of the day today? I had them out by 2 p.m. Yay. And just before I left for the day, I received the data file that I need for my next big set of reports, so I'm looking forward to getting started with that tomorrow morning.
