Welcome to Friday!! Friday basically means my brain doesn’t work so when planning my outfit I try to choose one item and then plan the rest of it around that one thing. Today it was these new bow flats I ordered from J. Crew Factory when they were having a 50% off sale.  The website suggested them when I was checking out and I threw them in my cart on a whim. Turns out they’re probably my favorite thing from my order. And since when I was walking home from The Limited last night and my left ankle started to hurt from wearing heels all day I knew I wanted to wear flats to the office today.

The outfit just moved up from there. A blazer so I would look semi-professional. The striped shirt because I like stripes. And finally I remembered I hadn’t worn my Vividly scarf yet so I tossed that on. The colors on the scarf aren’t as vibrant as I would have liked but I suppose that makes it look less clownish.

Speaking of bright and clownish (gotta love my transitions), I’m leaving for a conference in Las Vegas on Sunday so next week I’ll be sharing a post on what I packed, my October shopping summary (including my two new purchases from last night’s Limited 50th Anniversary Celebration) and, of course, the post where you get to vote for your favorite outfit of October!

In the mean time, you can find me on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook!

    You look fabulous!!! Those jeans fit you perfectly and I love the little peek at the striped shirt underneath the jacket. Those flats are super cute, too.

    Viva Las Vegas!!! Can’t wait to hear how you enjoy yourself out there!!!

    Oh I do love some good old pattern mixing. Fashion Challenge for ya… a friend of mine and I did a pattern mixing week on our blogs to which we discovered the “trifecta”:mixing three patterns at once. I dare you to give it a whirl!!

      I don’t really like long sleeves and much prefer 3/4 length. So that’s the main reason I roll up my sleeves. But I agree that it looks less “stuffy”. When I have to wear a full suit I usually roll down the sleeves but otherwise they’re rolled up.

    Ah, I like this one a lot! The stripes and the spotted scarf look so great together, and I never would have thought to do that.
