For the record I didn't wear the jacket or scarf at work.
But I kind of like the way this all goes together.
I look like one of those people on Pinterest who are walking carefree in the park,
holding a coffee, and an awesome tote bag. But I'm not because,
I don't have anyone to take my pictures.
Also I'm wearing my wedding ring again, because now I have somewhere to wear it.
Scarf: Eddie Bauer Outlet (this year)
Denim Jacket: The Gap (circa 2001)
Actual outfit worn for my return into the wonderful world of retail.
Lace shirt: Kohl's, Lauren Conrad (fall 2013)
New Black Skinnies: Ann Taylor Loft (after Christmas sale 50%off)
Layering tank: Target
Brown Boots (my old stand bys): Kohl's (2012)
I had this mapped out in my mind for a few days, but with a denim shirt.
The denim shirt wasn't dressy enough for my taste so I added a mustard cardi.
Same boots as Monday, and a layering tank to make sure my boobs didn't fall out.
I mean no one wants to see those, I promise.
New gray trouser skinnies: Anne Taylor Loft (this year, 50% off at their clearance sale)
Lace tank: Target (summer)
Layering tank: Old Navy
Boyfriend Cardi: Target (last year)
Lets have an honest talk here. The pants I'm wearing, I found them in a bag
marked garage sale, no joke. The Hubbs brought in the bag from the last garage sale, I went through it again and found these brown pants from, wait for it, 2001. They were bought the same day as the denim jacket in picture one. Cardi, blouse, and nude flats are new purchases. I liked this outfit because it was comfortable, but looked put together.
Cream cardi: Target
Polka Dot Shirt: NY and CO
Brown trousers: Gap (2001)
Nude flats: Payless
Let's talk dirty mirrors for a moment. Didn't notice it until I was ready to post this picture. Shameful.
Skinny trousers again, but only because my other pants are getting alterations.
Wine and leopard is a combo that I just love. Brown boots again, but they are hard to see.
Those babies are from Kohl's. Also the leopard sweater is from Mervyn's (moment of silence for dead retailers), and its from the girls department because I'm kinda short.
So remember that giveaway from Kiki La Rue I won? Well I indulged in this gold and black cardi called the Gatsby. The gold is fantastic and has some shine to it. I'm not usually a fan of gold and shiny, but it's super glamorous. I paired it with a different lace shirt that has sleeves (that you can't see), and black trousers I found hiding in my closet from my former life as an escrow assistant. New black flats that aren't as comfortable as my nude ones, which sucks because these were twice as much!
Gatsby Cardi: Kiki La Rue
Lace Shirt: American Eagle (2012)
Black Trousers: Ann Taylor Loft (circa 2006)
Black Flats: Aldo
All in all a great first week at work. Did my feet hurt? Yes. Was I exhausted? Absolutely. Did I have fun? Yeah, I really did. Being out in the world is kind of fun. Did I miss my bloggy world and Instagram friends? So much. But by posting my outfits everyday, I felt like I wasn't totally in the dark. And look at this selfie, I even wore earrings. It says a lot about a person's new adventure in life, when it requires her to do her eyebrows and wear earrings on the same day. Snort.
