Do you ever have those days when you’re trying to take an outfit picture, and everything seems to go wrong? This was one of those days for me. I’m pretty sure I was in a wind tunnel the whole time, and it was so windy that my hair eventually felt like hay. Yes, hay. Am I painting a pretty enough picture yet? Then I get home to upload my computers, only to realize half of them have terrible shadows. It just wasn’t my day! Luckily, a picture doesn’t always tell the full story, which in my case is a good thing.
Nonetheless, I still enjoy today’s outfit, and it’s probably going to be recycled real soon. I like to be comfortable at work since I’m always on the go. I’ve talked in the past about pencil skirts not being my best friend. Yes, I do own pencil skirts, but I try to avoid them at all costs. I’m not a big cold weather girl, but there are a few perks when it comes to the fashion. Since I don’t like the confinement of a pencil skirt, I tend to go for a length slightly shorter than a pencil length. This can be a little questionable for a work environment, so the ability (and need) to add tights this time of year is a lifesaver! That way, I can have the movement of a shorter hem, but still look office-appropriate at the same time. Win win! This Tiffany blue skirt was a Gap purchase last year, and is incredibly comfortable. It’s come in handy for those times I need to remind myself to add a pop of color to my monochromatic outfits. I’m also wearing the polkadot stockings again. At least I gave fair warning that they’d be popping up a lot on here ;).
