Office Appropriate Outfits - Spring · Pinterest Parallels

Last week we had a few more days when winter decided it wasn’t done with us yet. I decided that was possibly my last chance to bust out my faux fur vest. I’d been wanting to wear it with my olive green shirt and leopard wedges ever since I pinned a similar look from Christine at The View from 5 ft. 2 (who I have actually met in person when she lived in Chicago).

olive-shirt-fur-vest-3When I walked into my boss’s office wearing this vest he exclaimed, “Nice jacket!” Considering my boss wears dress pants and a polo shirt 4 out of 5 days (and on the fifth he wears jeans and a polo) I wouldn’t say he’s the paragon of fashion. But, ever since I told him I needed to leave early to get my photo taken for Crain’s I think he’s been keeping an eye on my outfits.

But let’s talk about this necklace for a minute. I have a very similar one from The Limited but I’ve had this one from Rocksbox for a week or two and I want to wear it all the time. I don’t even know why! In fact, I might just decided to replace my one from The Limited with it.

Crazy to see how much we’ve both changed in that seemingly short amount of time! I never thought I’d be wearing jeans as much as I do and I never thought Chewie would get as big as he has!

      Agreed that untucked is the way to go.

      We’re still working with Chewie on teaching how to “go to his spot” (aka a specific throw rug). He’s super eager to please but doesn’t always catch on quickly πŸ™‚

    I love this look… everything about it is just perfect. You make me wish I hadn’t gotten rid of my fur vests (I hadn’t worn them in quite some time) because I’d totally do a version of this look. I like this version better than the other, but I think this version is more my style and that’s why I’m more drawn to it.

      Truth be told, I like this version better. I don’t like the shirt tucked in (yay for having a short torso) and I always hate ankle pants with flats.

    Love the comparison to the first time you wore it! I think I’m sold on the fur vest…if they are still in style next year πŸ™‚
