SIA: Tempest in a Hat

Casual Friday · Office Appropriate Outfits - Fall

I think I must still be in a food coma because I’m struggling with writing something interesting today. We celebrated Thanksgiving with my family and then Jason’s family so there was a bit of travel and a lot of food!

On Thanksgiving proper we were at my parents and, although I had a different outfit originally planned, I ended  up in my favorite black jeans and this cobalt blue top. And, true to form, it was only after I had it on that I realized it worked perfectly for this week’s Style Imitating Art choice.

And of course I had to borrow a hat from my mom since she had the perfect one sitting in her closet, unworn!

I also didn’t do any Black Friday shopping, although that’s not unusual for me. I think last year I bought a purse but that was it. This year? Nothing as of yet. And I’m totally okay with that. Instead, on Friday we went for a 3.5 mile walk, drank margaritas, and played Sequence.


Saturday we drove to Indianapolis to visit Jason’s family where I got in a 12 mile run before spending the rest of the day with them.

Now it’s back to the grind for a few weeks before I take a short vacation to Santa Fe, New Mexico and then celebrate Christmas!

    Nice interpretation Erin! Love the cobalt blue that you chose for this SIA. I have a shirt that’s close to the same color as yours and next to my black shirts, is probably one of my favorites to wear. Love the hat by the way! It’s a nice addition to your outfit.

    I know what you mean. We’re just finishing up our leftovers from Thanksgiving and I still feel rather sluggish after 4 days of eating so heavy. I’m ready to go back to my veggies and rice!

    Glad to hear that you enjoyed Thanksgiving with your family. 🙂

    Stunning outfit! The hat and the scarf are like the frosting on a cake.
    Glad you had a good time with family and friends.

    I love it Erin! How serendipitous that you were wearing this without thinking. A friend of mine was wearing a perfect outfit on her blog so I told her to send it to Salazar. Whether she did or not, I don’t know! I hope so!
