Office Day Outfit

Hi everyone! Sorry for the absence. Work has been, well, work. So much that I needed to make an office trip Wednesday. I haven’t been in to my office since the end of April so I was due to go in for a day. Going in meant two things. 1)..Wearing a new item, particularly one of my new pencil skirts; and 2) Stopping by the J’Crewlet, where dina found some goodies I had to see in person.

So the first part will be taken care of below. I will post later today or tomorrow the outlet finds.

Here’s the Polyvore.

And how I wore it.

(I don’t have the bag but I saw it IRL and it is gorgeous!)

I am so happy with this outfit, except for one thing. The tank had a rouge ribbon that stuck straight out in the most inappropriate place. AND, it was right where it could be covered by the cardi, or not. So I need to do a little stitching to lay that sucker back down.

Have a great day!

    Love the outfit – was just at the outlet (San Marcos) and bought the imperial tee!!! Another JCA raved about it and she was right! Hey, when you get a chance could you please take a look at my Coach entry on their facebook page – mine is the wild rocker outfit at the bottom under "love2shop4" – I don't have a facebbok account and any help from a fellow JCA would be much appreciated!

    Great outfit! I love the color combination and especially the shoes. They were one of my faves from JC, but sadly I missed them.

    That oak tweed skirt is marvelous on you! I also missed out on the Penelope shoes… such a shame but they look fantastic with your outfit!

    That is a fantastic outfit! You've inspired me to dress better for my work (which is bus casual).

    Love your blog,

    Jcrewcrazy – I'm glad I already had the Imperial tee b/c they ran out of my size at the outlet. I found your Coach entry too. Thanks for letting me know about it.

    ABC & Andrea – I love the Penelope. I actually searched on ebay. It was sooo worth the wait.

    Patina – Thank you!

    Anon aka Linda – So happy to hear I've inspired you!

    Sarah – Thanks! Me too!
