Pinterest Parallels [Vol. 17]

Office Appropriate Outfits - Winter · Pinterest Parallels · Style Imitating Art

When I got my new camel blazer for Christmas I knew the exact outfit I wanted to recreate using it. It was this one from Damsel in Dior. Turns out this outfit also kind of works for this week’s Style Imitating Art challenge from Animated Cardigan.

I know the original SIA photograph that Jess chose is all black and white, but I think the stripes on my shirt echo the trees and the tan jacket just alludes to nature.

In other news, I spent all of Friday and Saturday working at for a local half marathon and a good chunk of Sunday answering post-race emails. Our race shirt manufacturer missed our deadline and, as such, some of our shirts were stuck in transit and didn’t arrive in time for the race. Most people were understanding but there are always those who have to be rude or difficult about things, right?

Anyway, it just reinforces the life lesson that you should try your hardest to be nice to people. Why default to rude when it’s just as easy to be nice, you know?

I fully admit that I am not always the nicest person. Sometimes Jason has to say “Be nice” when I’m getting testy. So even I can stand a reminder now and then. No one is perfect.

Admittedly, even this outfit isn’t perfect. In the interest of full disclosure, I barely wore the blazer all day. After months of being cold our office is finally warm! So, I suppose, that my outfit ended up being a great interpretation of this week’s SIA choice after all.
