It’s hard NOT to love a short week at work. Not only is it, well, a short week, but it ALSO means no one cares what I wear to the office. Thus my ability to participate in this weeks Inspiration Monday. This weeks Inspiration was this picture:
Now, I admit that I don’t have a lot in the way of that kind of neutral; they just aren’t great colors on me. And I realized when I went looking that, uhm, I didn’t have a SINGLE stripped shirt. (I ordered one on clearance about a week ago from J.Jill but it isn’t here yet.) So my interpretation is a bit loose. However it’s VERY me; my colors, my style, and totally comfortable.
- Striped Chevron Tee- Kohls
- Denim Jeggings – Avenue
- Ruched Purple Cardigan – Coldwater Creek 2+years ago
- Black Boots – Avenue
- Gear necklace – SAHoltArtist1 on Etsy
The boots were a fun find yesterday at Avenue; marked down and then 40% off that, so they came out to $36. Plus the styling on them is fun and a little butch. Instead of trying to hide the inside zipper, they matched it with an OUTSIDE zipper and some neat straps. Fun! They aren’t even a little leather, but since I only can wear boots for about 3 months out of the year this was about all I felt comfortable spending on a new pair this season.
I bought myself an early christmas present today, though. As you may have noticed, I love bags, but I’m a bit of a cheapskate. I’m not about to pay multiple hundreds of dollars, let alone THOUSANDS of dollars, for something that is going to get tossed around, sit on the floor, and otherwise beaten up. However I’ve had two things I’ve been thinking I wanted to get lately:
- A purse that was predominantly black and white; check, houndstooth, zebra, something…
- A green purse
