I’m actually writing this post on Friday (yay for Friday) because this weekend I’m going to be busy. So, let’s pretend it’s the future and I’ll you about my weekend.
I went up to Benton Harbor, Michigan and stayed in a house with some friends and then we went to run the Michigan Wine Trail Half Marathon & Galloping Grape 5K. I stuck with the 5K distance so I could enjoy wine and pool time instead of worrying about running 13.1 miles.
But before I did all that, I wore this outfit.
This was another instance where I put together an outfit (based on this pin, actually) and realized after the fact that it fit with the Style Interpreting Art theme since Salazar chose a painting with neutral colors for this week’s inspiration.

Of course, since my office is freezing and I sit between two air vents. I had to wear a cardigan for most of the day.
This outfit is a great example of how swapping out just a few pieces can create an entirely different look. The shirt and the belt are exactly the same as in this outfit with my pink skirt but adding black and brown instead of pink and pearls takes it from girly to….well, I wouldn’t say tough but definitely tougher. Also, I liked that the strappy wedge sandals took it down a notch and made it feel slightly more casual.
