Otherwise known as: "What I wore to work this week," a post that is sure to bore the guys and probably some of my other readers. Sorry. It's hard to figure out what to to blog about while I'm not running.
The dress protocol at my work is very casual. As in, it's okay to wear jeans. I had fallen into the trap of wearing jeans almost every day and was starting to look more and more like a slob as time went on.
In mid-December, I decided to try to dress a little more fashionably which has required expanding my wardrobe. I'm also a bargain shopper, and as I'm experimenting with new outfits, I've decided to photo chronicle some of my them to help me figure out which look better than others.
I like the outfit with the blue print top better without the sweater, but it was chilly that day, so I wore the sweater. The grey pants that you can't see very well are from the Limited. The top is Calvin Klein. Picked up the sweater at Marshalls, not sure what brand it is.
The skirt outfit was paired with boots. I find skirts to be quite comfortable. The only thing I don't like about them is that most of my skirts don't have pockets. And looking at the photo, now I'm thinking that skirts might make me look pudgy. I remember buying the top at Kohls and the skirt at Marshalls.
I'm big on wearing scarves. I just love them. I'm surprised that I only have one outfit with a scarf so far in my photos from the week. No surprise, that outfit with the scarf is by far my favorite of the four. The whole outfit is from Marshalls, and if memory serves me, I scored that sweater for a mere $7 from the clearance rack.
I succumbed to wearing blue jeans in the fourth photo. I really like that top paired with the black bolo sweater. But I think it would have looked much better with black pants. Oh well, at least I wore dark jeans.
So there you have it, the first installment (and who knows, maybe the last) of wiw2wtw.
I can only wear jeans on Fridays, and I seem to always look forward to it. I wish that I could wear them more often!ReplyDelete
I'm also a big fan of scarves and own quite a few of them. Skirts and dresses tend to fit me better than pants, but I do wish that more skirts were made with pockets. I hate having to carry my keys around when I'm teaching.ReplyDelete
My favourite is the long orange-y coloured sweater and the scarf!! Looks cozy but still stylish!ReplyDelete

I love posts like these! Love!!!ReplyDelete
And when you start running again, please continue to do this too. Then I will definitely stalk u!!!!! :)
Love the scarf/rust colored outfit the best!!!!!
The skirt outfit, I think it's the top. Cos' the skirt is kinda not straight/form-fitting/pencil, and the extra cloth on the top is making it look that you have excess going on. Try it again with some "leaner" top.
And post it. Do a before and after / variation picture!
