So far this is the week of taking items I wore earlier this fall and turning them into cooler weather appropriate outfits. When I Alternatives to tamoxifen and arimidex I paired it with a tank top and sandals and kept it safe with an all black and gray color palate. This time, though, I went with recreating an outfit I saved on Pinterest. I’ve paired this top with cobalt blue before so it was easy to swap the blue from the top to the bottom. I like that the sleeveless blazer gives it a bit of a different vibe, though. since it shows off the sleeves of the shirt and adds some interesting texture to the outfit.

By the way, if you’re a blogger in the Chicago area and want to get this blazer (or another CAbi piece) for FREE just check out this event that my friend Holly is sponsoring. Attend the CAbi kick-off keynote with Geena Davis, blog about it, and Holly  will send you a CAbi item of your choice.

Also, funny story: this building is basically across the street from my apartment. It has a fence all the way around with gates that are locked outside of 9-5 business hours. The building has no sign on it and we had no idea what they do. Until I decided to do a bit of Google research and discovered it’s the headquarters of what appears to be a pretty major construction firm. Still, there’s a part of me that wants to keep thinking it’s a super-secret government test facility.

Question: Would you like it if at the bottom of each post I included a collage of two or three ways I’ve reworn the items in the main outfit photo? Let me know!

P.S. If you want to see yet another way I wore last week’s purple dress and another dress-as-a-blouse outfit, head over to Work Your Wardrobe where I’m this week’s contributor.
