Pajamas to work

We have all had days when we wish we could wear our PJs to the office, today was one of those days for me. I can't imagine my co-workers reaction if I showed up to work in sweats or PJs. The fact that I wore flats today put several of them in a tizzy. One stopped by my office to tell me that I should warn people when I wear flats since she didn't know who I was. Apparently, people recognize me by the additional 3" inches on my feet. Because 5-11", red-head females are common in my division (not so much).

Today's outfit is about as close as I could get to PJs and still adhere to the "business casual" dress code. Other than the constant comments/questions about my shoe choice, I was extremely comfortable.

The outfit:
Boyfriend blazer - The Limited (v. old, but so happy I held on to it!)
Ruffled tank - The Limited
Trousers and necklace - Ann Taylor Loft
Bracelet - New York & Company
Sequined flats - DSW

Trench as a topper

This trench was hanging in the "dress" section of the thrift store. As you can see, this garment was not manufactured to be a dress. Wouldn't that be scandalous? I think with the skinny cords it is an excellent topper. Besides it was $2.00, so I think I will wear it anyway I want (except as a dress)

The outfit:
Trench (label cut out) - thrifted
Skinny cords - New York & Company
Orange necklace and heels - Target

Why are my pics coming out so dark? I have every light in the room and in the hall on. WTH?

St. Patty's Day

I am not one for dressing for holidays. I don't believe that you have to wear orange-black on Halloween, green-red on Christmas, etc. But legend has it that if you don't wear green on St. Patrick's day, other people have the right to pinch you. I didn't want to cause bodily harm to anyone today, so I decided to wear these fabulous green pumps.
The outfit:
Corduroy jacket and ruffled tank - Ann Taylor Loft
Lace skirt and watch - New York & Company
Heels - Nine West
Button ring - Etsy

Professor Plum

I haven't worn this blouse nearly enough since I purchased it. I love the all over pattern and the ruffles. Some may think it is not office appropriate since it is sheer, but throw a tank/cami on underneath and it is appropriate for almost any occassion.

The outfit:
Blouse - GO for Target
Black cami (underneath) - The Limited
Skirt - New York & Company
Heels - Jessica Simpson

Sexy Secretary

Do you remember when secretaries (now Administrative Assistants) used to dress up? Maybe some still do, but mine and the others in my department do not. Most of them dress for comfort (i.e. elastic waist pants, tennis shoes, Crocs). If I were an Ad. Asst. I like to think that I would dress like this everyday.
Originally, I thought about putting on a jacket but remembered that I have this cape. I don't wear this enough and thought I would at least get one more use out of it before warmer temperatures arrive.

The outfit:
T shirt - Mossimo (Target)
Skirt - Merona (Target)
Cape - Ann Taylor Loft
Lace tights - Target
Heels - Jessica Simpson
Watch - New York & Company (Black Friday freebie)

The outfit:
Dress - Merona (Target)
Cardigan - New York & Company
Tights - Hue
Heels - (October 2009)
Pearls - gifted

I have been a bad blogger of late. The only thing I can blame this on is my current workload. I am currently in the process of writing grant applications, manuscripts and presentations. I am writing so much at work that the last thing I want to do is blog (write) about my daily wardrobe. have updated the blog with pics from the last week (please scroll down), but you will notice there is very little narrative. I will try to do better in the future.

The outfit:
Grandpa sweater - H&M
Cami - New York & Company
Dress, necklace, and lacy tights - Target
Boots - Rampage
