OOTD September 27, 2012

Been working very long days/nights lately, and getting up is hard.   Working from home, it’s so tempting to either show up in jammies or toss on yoga pants and a tee.  On a normal day where I’m full of energy, I can do that.  However, I have learned that if you are really dragging then you need to take a shower, do your hair, and put on something great.    Honestly I’m still waiting for the effects of that effort to materialize, but on to the outfit.

I paired some dark wash Jessica Simpson skinny jeans from TJMaxx ($20) with a basic Chico’s tank ($19), a tiered flowy jacket in watermelon that I scored at Marshalls ($15)  and a scarf from Chicos ($39) in taupe/white/cream and watermelon.

I know: I gasped at the price of the scarf when I bought it, but it’s a great example of how accessories make the outfit as well as provide some additional benefits.    Being over-blessed in the boobage department and having a short neck coupled with white tank is just a magnet for spilling something onto the tank.    I can just retie the scarf to cover up any damage and not feel like a slob the rest of the day.

(Note from Rebecca:  I never wear scarves, but this is a really good case for them.  I personally worry that they just add more weight where I don’t need it, but as a member of the “must always have a Tide Pen in her purse for when (not if) she spills something on her chest” club, this does present another possibility.)

The purse is a member of my Brahmin collection, A Tri-Color Lisa Dome Satchel in Prosecco, ($325) from Dillards; a color which appears to be sold out online, but available on eBay.

Shoes are taupe Delta Jellypop’s I found on clearance at DSW for $24.


Bracelet leather and silver in a soft chocolate brown from Lucky Brand from Belks.
