Green Bean

Blouse: The Limited (alternative) / Skirt: LOFT (alternative) / Shoes: Charles David


Wow I checked out for a minute there - work has been busy, per usual. I have posted on instagram, for those of you who follow us there. But here is a quick catch-up recap post for the ole blog.

Last week I busted out this navy lace pencil skirt which i LOVE, and which I only ever pair with neutrals. I know navy is a neutral, too, but why do I struggle to find colors to pair with it??  Adding to that is the fact that this skirt is lace which makes it feel even less neutral and thus more of a struggle for me to pair it with things.  Anyway, went with burgundy this time and I think I like it....

Also last week, I took this incredibly glam bathroom shot in the middle of a loooong deposition. Love this orange sweater but rarely wear it. Loved it with the tweed skirt - though worn on the first day of Spring, this is quite the Autumn look....

And then when I had a court appearance, I dressed in some classic work wear - navy suit, white blouse (I ditched the jacket after court).

And finally, yesterday, I wore blacks n blues, and tweed again....

Floral + Gray

This tried and true floral blouse must have cost me like $20 at Forever 21 a few years ago - and it has gotten some decent play in those years... love a good low cost per wear item...(oh, I have another great Forever 21 floral blouse that has gotten a lot of play too - see how I've worn that one over the years here).

See how I've worn it in the past below. In the meantime, here's how I wore it today - with a charcoal gray mini skirt that I'm not sure is really working with it. Would have preferred a camel colored skirt but that is something i do not have.

No Complaints Here.

Hi! I keep telling myself I need to keep it positive around here - no more whining and griping all the damn time - but of course, when you are burning the candle at both ends on a near-constant basis, complaints do tend to abound.  However, I got sick last week with what is possibly the worst cold I've ever had, and all other complaints seemed silly at that point.  Seriously, why is it that we don't appreciate our health until we are under the weather?

Anyway, I am back in business for the most part today (running on DayQuil and coffee!), and though work is oppressive, I am not getting stressed because I am too busy celebrating the fact that I actually feel decent!

In outfit news, I am wearing a tried and true combo of neutrals -  gray, white, and navy with my fave summer shoes. Also- this skirt is so cute because it has double side slits - wish I had gotten a decent picture of them; you can see better in this post from last Fall.
