Preppy with a bit of punk

There’s a part of me that felt quite preppy in today’s outfit. Something about a cardigan with a matching necklace does that to me. But here’s a little secret: my top is faux leather. Which I think takes this outfit from preppy to a little bit of punk.

I could have worn a plain black top with this cardigan and these pants but I wanted to give this outfit a bit more interest. That’s the benefit to having tops in interesting materials and textures. It takes your outfit to a slightly different level. Not particularly ground-breaking information, I know, but I figured I’d share it with you anyway.

    I like this outfit very much. That’s a pretty shade of blue and looks great on you.

    Odd comment, but I just noticed your foot. Have you ever written about your thoughts on tattoos being visible in the workplace?

      Good question! I’ve written about what my tattoo is but I’ve never written about how it’s been accepted in the workplace. Perhaps because as long as I’ve had it both places I’ve worked have never said anything about it. One of my current coworkers has a tattoo on her ankle that’s visible all the time (she basically never wears pants, only dresses) so clearly having a small yet visible tattoo is not something my boss cares about.

      It’s something interesting to think about, though. One of the reasons I got it on my foot is so that, if necessary, I could cover it up with shoes pretty easily just in case.
