I’ve had this skirt for 6 years and even though it was out of style for a few of them, I just couldn’t get rid of it. I pull it out with the rest of my skirts each spring and wear it faithfully. So when I was mulling over what I’d wear to work (for a client meeting) I kept being pulled to it. Even though I had my outfit already picked out…I just wasn’t feeling it.
So I put it on and grabbed the green shirt that I would normally wear with it. I did what I always do and layer a black tank underneath and wear it with the shirt on the outside. BUT…then I remembered this fabulous pairing from Shabby Apple that I fell in love with and thought hmmmm, can I pull that off right now?
Um, yeah. I think I can! And I did. I felt like a million bucks and didn’t spend a dime to look current. I LOVE THAT. And I feel like I could work at Sterling Cooper.

Another dress that I don’t wear and don’t know why. I bought it when I was pregnant with Marshall but always thought it was too revealing on my back side. But it was HOT today (over 90) and I had yet another client meeting. Determined to make more use of my wardrobe and pieces I love, I tossed my loud yellow cardi on and cinched my patent red belt up to cover the elastic empire waist. And then I tossed a handmade (by me) flower in my hair. BTW, I am kinda in love with Coca-Cola red and in my world, it pretty much goes with everything.
One of my favorite shirts. And comfy pants for a friday at work. Normally I would wear this shirt with a white tank under and on the outside of the pants. But I got brave again and tucked it in and wrapped on my favorite belt.
