Pinterest Parallels [Vol. 11]

Office Appropriate Outfits - Summer · Pinterest Parallels

When I attended the Bucketfeet event on Tuesday night I had such a good time that when I left to meet my husband for dinner (at Piece Pizza & Brewery!) that I totally forgot my gym bag at the Bucketfeet studio! I wasn’t able to get it back until Thursday but by going to retrieve it I found out that Bucketfeet HQ is super close to my apartment AND they have an office dog. Seriously, I could not love this company more.

Anyway, all of that drama meant that on Wednesday I was NOT feeling inspired to put together a decent outfit considering I had left my “good” makeup in my errant gym bag and I had to throw together some backup items so I could go to the gym. Let’s just say that Wednesday’s outfit shall forever be lost to annals of time. Instead, let’s focus on Thursday’s outfit.

I still wasn’t feeling THAT inspired so I turned to my trusty friend: Pinterest. And decided to go for something colorful with this blue and green outfit.

These are currently the only pair of dress pants that fit me. And that’s because I almost replaced them with some a size or two larger. But, hey, all this working out I’ve been doing is working so here they are fitting me again!

However, for some reason I felt like I belonged on the set of the Golden Girls in this outfit. I’m honestly not sure why. I welcome your thoughts!

At the end of the work day on Thursday one of our marketing directors came up to me and said,  “I have something kind of weird to ask you.” Uh…okay.

Turns out the company had an extra ticket to an event last night and the marketing director thought I would be a good person to go because A. I fit in with the group that was going because I know how to look and act professional and B. I know how to comport myself at events with open bars. Sadly, I was unable to attend and I’m a little bummed about it. Not because it was an open bar (although, let’s be honest, that’s quite nice) but because it would have been a good opportunity to do some networking. Ah, well. It’s nice to know that in the slightly-less-than-a-year I’ve been at the company I’ve made a good impression on people! Even if I do sometimes feel like a Golden Girl.
