Time for Blue

Office Appropriate Outfits - Summer · Style Imitating Art

First off, apologies for dropping off the face of the blog-land last week. As I’ve mentioned before, we are still trying to find a balance between work, life and puppy.

However, I was able to find some time this weekend to take some outfit photos ahead of time. I promise, I WILL be wearing everything you see this week. It’s just easier sometimes to take all the photos on the same day.

So, without further ado, here’s what I’m wearing today:

White lace tee with cobalt blue pants and nude heels

Top – Banana Republic Outlet (similar) | Pants – LOFT (similar) | Shoes – Bandolino (similar)

And why am I wearing this today? Two reasons. This first is that I’m doing my very first presentation at work and I wanted to be a bit more dressed up than usual.

The second is that this week’s Style Imitating Art chosen by 14 Shades of Grey involves white and blue.

“Portrait of Elisabeth Lederer” (1913) by Egon Schiele

So with my dark hair, my white top, and my blue pants, not to mention my red lipstick, I think I’m hitting this one right on the money.

Of course, it’s not always about recreating something exactly. Just like when you see a picture in a magazine that you love you don’t have to recreate it down to every detail. It should just inspire you to try something new!

Speaking of which, if anyone has any suggestions on how to fit in blogging, working, puppy-training and exercising with spending time with your SO and having a social life, I’m all ears! THAT I might imitate exactly!

    For me, the only way I can maintain a busy schedule and still have time to have a social life (or just relax) is to try to plan as much as I can ahead of time but then remember that I need to be flexible. I use Google calendar (synced with my ical on my phone) to schedule all of my workouts, classes, and social events outside of my work hours. I also plan by the week instead of the day as much as possible so if something comes up, like a happy hour, I can rearrange a workout/study time so that I can attend. As long as I get it all (or most of it) in before the end of the week, I’m happy. I also try to schedule my personal things (like working out and even studying) during times I know Ian is busy/unavailable which usually means I’m waking up before work to work out (or during lunch). Its hard and not every week is perfect (most aren’t) but planning ahead really helps. Oh – and I find that having Google calendar e-mail me my events is really helpful. I won’t let myself delete them until I do them and I hate having unread e-mail in my inbox. Extra motivation :).

    P.S. I really like your top!

      What time do you get up to run? I envy your ability to get up and go. I can only run in the morning if I’m meeting someone and now with my new work hours I’d need to run at 5AM to get done in time to get ready for work and deal with the dog.

    Ooooh, I was so hoping you’d say that shirt was from H&M, because I have an H&M shirt almost exactly identical to that! I love it since you’re basically wearing a tank top, but it technically has sleeves so it doesn’t *look* like a tank top (even though the sleeves are just lace).

      It went well! It was just a short demo of some software we’re hoping to use but I needed some people to understand how it works so that they can give me feedback on how we’re going to implement it. Now I just have to wait for their feedback!
