Fall Uniform

Casual Clothes · Office Appropriate Outfits - Fall

I wore this outfit to work last week (and again yesterday) and while I was in the bathroom washing my hands another woman said to me, “I love your sweater with that shirt and necklace!”

I told her that I would dress like this every day if I could. I mean, I suppose I could but that might get a tad boring for you all. Still, I think this is my fall and winter “uniform”. I just love pairing a blingy necklace with the more traditional sweater and button up shirt.

The navy and the green are great fall colors and go well together without being overly matching. And, of course, the riding boots because I think it’s a rule that women in Chicago wear riding boots in the fall.

Okay, maybe not a rule, but it’s pretty standard. Especially when fall seems to have become winter overnight! I’m pretty sure that if we want to take Chewie to the dog park this week I’m going to have to bust out my snowsuit. Yes, I own a snowsuit. It’s for skiing.

Funny related story: growing up I couldn’t say snowsuit. I always said snowsnoot. To this day I have to think about the correct pronunciation before I say it out loud.

Thank goodness my daily uniform isn’t a snowsuit.

P.S. Due to some construction in our building our photo shoot was interrupted by an upstairs neighbor bringing his dog up the back stairwell. This is the only photo where neither Chewie nor I are making some weird face or pose. And even that is arguable.
