Wow. Okay. So, it’s Monday. And, just like Garfield, Mondays and mornings are very difficult for me. I had an amazingly fun weekend but it basically left me with no time to prep anything for this week. Including taking any blog photos. So these were snapped on my way out the door by my husband who wasn’t fully awake either and had the settings on our camera all wrong. Oh well.

Anyway, this outfit was inspired by the latest Style Imitating Art choice by Salazar, “Louison and Raminou” by Suzanne Valadon:

I couldn’t pose with a cat since I’m terribly allergic to them. Also, as we know, I don’t own anything orange. So, here’s my ode to the painting. A green sweater and my leopard print skirt. That’s close enough to an orange kitty, right?

Oh, and in case you’re wondering, yes, I did commute to work via train in the sub-zero temps this morning. I wore a pair of yoga pants over my tights along with my snow boots. And, of course, my down coat, scarf, gloves and hat. Sigh. Some day I’ll be able to leave the house without taking 15 minutes to add extra layers, right?

In fact, here are two outfits featuring today’s sweater and skirt that did not require the addition of 6 other pieces of clothing.

    I was thinking this morning, “When is Erin going to do her blog pics?!” since we were together all weekend 😉

    I am happy you had a warm trip to the office, even though it took so long to add all that!

    That is a great leopard skirt and I’m amazed at any blogger who can take ANY pictures on a Monday morning! I didn’t get to Macy’s this weekend! I really wanted to be the cool blogger who found your leopard booties but it didn’t happen…yet. I will definitely check next time I’m at the mall just in case. 🙂 Glad to see you like to shop at Express too! 🙂 Thanks for linking up again today!

    Oh man, you are a trooper for going through that layering process for your commute! I am spoiled that I basically go from garage to garage from here to work. I love that skirt though and double love that you paired it with that sweater – it’s such a great color combo! Thanks for sharing this with Manic Monday!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Fashionably Employed Link Up – it’s great to see what you’re wearing to the office in these miserable temperatures. We all need a little extra inspiration to get up when it feels like -27 degrees outside!
