outfit post: coral/peach crepe blouse, striped skirt, wedges

Inspiration - Happily Grey

Easy cute weekend outfit. Only thing I'd change are my wedges. I like how the inspiration photo's shoes match the color of the skirt stripes. It makes the outfit feel more coordinated while I feel like mine is a little desperate with the coral then navy then tan/brown. But overall, since I don't own similar enough shoes, I was still happy wearing my version. :)

outfit post: black & white patterned crepe shift dress, black flats, teal clutch

Inspiration - Target

I went ahead and purchased the clutch I mentioned in my last shopping post. I was really excited to upgrade my 'going out' bag. I picked the fun teal color and anxiously waited for it to arrive. Once it came and I had it in hand I was a little surprised by how big it was. I then realized I didn't look at the measurements (rookie internet buying mistake!) before I bought it.

I decided to embrace the larger-then-expected size (yay room for more stuff) and bring it out to dinner with my hubby and extended visiting family. Soon as my husband (who doesn't often have much of an opinion on my clothing/bags/shoes) saw the bag - he asks,

"What IS that?"
Umm new cute envelope clutch?
"It's so big! Are you planning on bringing some contracts to dinner? Hahahahaha!"

And then for the rest of the night it was, "Hey I need to mail some documents - anyone have a giant envelope I can use?" He thought it was hilarious. Sooo, while I still like it enough to keep it, lesson learned - pay more attention to product details before making internet purchases!

outfit post: floral print tie-neck blouse, burgundy cardigan, tan work pants

Inspiration - What Not To Wear

I just browsed back through my outfit archives and I was really surprised to see that I've only posted two other outfits with this blouse. It's one of my favorite go-to no brainer tops that I wear to work all the time. Maybe it's the fact I wear it so much that I just assumed there were already a dozen posts with it and you'd be bored seeing it again? Who knows what my brain was up to... not me. Anywho - now that I realize my mistake - I'll try to show some of the other ways I wear it in the upcoming weeks. :)

outfit post: lilac pleated keyhole blouse, black suit pants, white belt, black pumps

Inspiration - Express

I found this blouse at Express (**update just saw it's 40% right now!) and I am in love. I am always on the lookout for easy work appropriate tops. When I first saw the shirt on the hanger I was a little concerned that the keyhole would show too much cleavage and ruin the suitability for the office. But I tried it on and found that the cutout is high enough that, even if you are larger chested like me, it's still conservative. And it's the kind of fabric that doesn't wrinkle very easily. Score.

The only issue I had was deciding which of the seven colors to buy. I finally went with lilac because I don't own many purple toned tops. And now that I have the blouse home and find myself wanting to wear it everyday - I am considering going back to get another color. :)
