So, I had a totally awesome outfit originally planned for today featuring my new sleeveless vest generously given to me by Holly from the fall CAbi line. Why my new sleeveless vest? Because today’s Inspiration Monday outfit featured one. I was so excited!

And then Chicago remembered it’s summer. And it’s over 80 degrees outside. And if I drove to work and just had to walk a few feet from my car to my office then pants and a sleeveless vest might be okay, But I don’t. I walk 5 minutes to the train, stand outside on the train platform, take the train, then have a 5 to 10 minute walk to my office.  Plus I need to run outdoor errands during lunch. I would be one heck of a sweaty mess if I tried that in my original outfit.

Which means that instead you get green and black as my nod to the Inspiration photo. You also get the same shoes I’ve been wearing non-stop because they are super comfy. Vince Camuto, I think you have a convert.
