Green Pants and All That

Office Appropriate Outfits - Fall · Style Imitating Art

First, congrats to Erica, Tanya and Katrina for winning the Flywheel giveaway! I’ll be in touch soon. Also, I have another group giveaway starting tomorrow so if you didn’t win this Flywheel one I hope you come back for that!

Anyway, I had one busy weekend! Trip to the dog park, Beaver’s Donuts, a trivia contest (more on that tomorrow as well), dinner with my husband, going for my first run in weeks, and doing the usual Sunday grocery run.

I had plans to take a bunch of outfit photos while there was light and Jason was available but snow and my laziness (sleeping in is such bliss) made it so that instead of having my husband take photos I was left to my own devices using the tripod and the timer.

So, apologies for the slightly fuzzy photos. Also, I apologize for not being that inspired by this week’s Style Imitating Art pick.

Yellow is one of my least favorite colors and I don’t own anything in that shade. Gold, though, I do own which is why I went with my gold polka dot top. The green pants echo the green of the desk, and the navy cardigan echoes the dark shawl and the bluish hat. navy-cardigan-green-pants-3The red eye is all courtesy of the flash I couldn’t figure out how to turn off

However, even if this outfit isn’t all that inspired it is comfy. These jeans are nice and soft and the thin blouse layers nicely under the cardigan. And just like in my fall uniform post, I’m digging the navy and dark green combo.

I’m kind of okay with this except for the fact that curly hair is actually easier to deal with after my lunchtime gym sessions. I’m getting a haircut on Wednesday with a new stylist so we’ll see what he has to say.

    Funny I was just looking at your pictures and was wondering if you’d straightened your hair! I can’t imagine my hair would ever just not be curly. It looks nice on you but I can totally relate to the post-gym hair.

    I’m so happy for you that the white vest is back in stock! LOL. I hope you snag it during Black Friday sales next week! Love the blouse, cardigan and boots combo and yellow non-lovers unite. (I’m trying not to say hate here…it sounds a little dramatic for my feelings on a color!) My yellow handbag is all the yellow I need!
