SIA: Tiffany Glass

Casual Friday · Office Appropriate Outfits - Spring · Style Imitating Art

If I was a good little blogger I would have actually gone to the Chicago Cultural Center and taken today’s blog photos underneath the Tiffany glass dome that inspired them. However, I am not that good of a blogger so instead you get photos that we took right before we left town for the weekend.

I chose this top because I thought both the colors and the pattern did a nice job echoing the colors and the idea of the stained glass window. I chose these shoes because I liked that the embellishment on the toe was reminiscent of the figures of the zodiac inlaid in the dome.

I wish I had been able to make to the Chicago Cultural Center and get some photos, though. But with my husband working in the suburbs, the only time we would have been able to go would have been on a weekend. And considering this past weekend consisted of a whirlwind trip to Indiana so I could run a race and Jason could race his car, well, it just wasn’t going to happen.

Trust me when I say I certainly don’t plan my life around my blog!

Speaking of which, I’m writing this post at 9PM on Sunday night which means it’s almost my bedtime. And after this weekend I definitely need my beauty sleep!

Monday mornings can be rough sometimes, right?  So what makes it easier to get dressed on a Monday?  How about using an inspiration photo?

Today’s inspiration photo comes courtesy of Two Birds blog who host an inspiration party every Monday.

Of course, for those of us who can’t throw on jeans on Mondays, I decided to interpret this into a summer casual office look.  Cropped dress pants, a flowing colorful blouse, simple hoop earrings and strappy heels fit the bill perfectly.

Don’t have a flowing blouse? Just put on something colorful up top to brighten up your dark pants, skirt, or capris.

How would you interpret this look?

P.S.  Don’t forget about You Pick Wednesdays! Only two days until the next one.  What do YOU want to see?
