4/7/11


So after divulging my usual morning routine yesterday, I thought I would try to get back in the habit of planning the occasional outfit. If you follow me on twitter you might have seen this image late {and by late I mean 9pm} last night.

Tomorrows potential outfit. {minus the sweater - that's it's permanent spot}


The fact that my internet went out while watching Gone with the Wind might have had something to do with my motivation to plan this outfit, but so what. I planned and conquered. This skirt is a bit dressy so I paired it with a casual chambray shirt. I'll refrain from making a mullet analogy about business on the bottom, party on the top. Oh wait, I just did.

Pin It!

  5. Quick question... do you wear pantyhose to the office with skirts? I work in a corporate (business casual) environment, too, and I always feel weird about bare legs! More like... people just give me weird looks. But I HATE pantyhose.

  7. We need to go shopping together, since we either have so many of the same pieces, or you have the pieces that got away from me. I wanted that skirt from JCrew, but they didn't have my size after it went on sale. I love how you paired it with a chambray shirt and colorful scarf. It completely balances everything perfectly.

  8. i'm absolutely loving this look!! nude pumps, a big scarf, and a pop of color from the belt -- this is what i consider a home-run outfit!!

    cute & little

  9. That scarf is fabulous! I'm loving how everyone styles chambray shirts differently, though I'm still searching for one. I need one ASAP!

  11. How funny, I just got back into planning my outfit the night before too! I used to do it all the time when I started the blog, but I had been slacking majorly! I am happy to be back into the groove!

  12. Oohh, maybe you should plan your outfits the night before more often, I LOVE this outfit! It's so figure flattering and has that "ready for spring" look! One of my favorites for sure!

  13. I love the blouse with the scarf, and I wouldn't think that it could be made corporate-appropriate, but you've done a great job. This really is a good one... and my internet also went out last night, which I think is the only reason I got my work done and went to bed. I guess the internet-universe was looking out!

  14. My plans rarely turn out this mulletly awesome. The mix of neutrals is interesting enough but what fun little subtle pink details!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Love this mix and the pink belt on the black waistband of the skirt is perfection!

  16. Think the pink accents made this look so girly and pretty! Gone with the wind is one of my all time favorites, so many florals and lace, feel like watching it right now, romaaaaance!

  17. I love the mullet analogy! My friends and I just spent WAY too much time this past weekend discussing mullets and the phrase "business in the front, party in the back." Possibly my friends and I need to get out more.

  18. I LOVE this outfit. It's so feminine and pretty!

  19. Outfit planning is crucial for me being on time to work. Except, I never like what I planned the night before. I really like how the belt looks over the band on the skirt. I might have to re-create that. :)

  20. I absolutely adore the pops of pink in this outfit. And yes, this is totally a mullet outfit, but in a good way. Not in the Billy Ray Cyrus redneck scary kind of way.

    I also swear you have tape on the floor for where you should stand. You always manage to stand in the same place, pretty much without flaw, each time. It's impressive, and scary at the same time.

  22. Cute outfit!
    I love your blog. I have to say, it's so nice to see someone my age who wears office appropriate clothes! You rock.

  23. thank you thank you, i kinda like it myself!

  24. Once it's warm I ditch pantyhose. Some of the ladies in the office who are older than me wear them but it's not required. Gotta free those legs in the summer time :)

  25. We should go shopping Melaine! I probably should have waited until sale for this skirt but I couldn't. Thankfully I had a gift card so buying it at full price didn't sting as much!

  26. I feel the same way Kinsey---maybe your post kind of encouraged me to get back to my old habits. I definitely need to get back to doing this more :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I got away from planning for that reason Ashley! But this worked out so I may have to do a bit more planning going forward...time will tell :)

  30. I'm a night planner, I have to be. Or I'd never make it out the door! Anyway, I love this--the scarf and the belt are such pretty spring touches!

  33. I love your outfit! I've been wanting some nude pumps forever--they seem to go with everything.

  34. Super cute! I love how the pink in the scarf matches the pink belt. I don't think I've worn a scarf to work like that, but I should totally try it!

  35. I love this outfit! Denim shirts are my new favorite, they look great with everything.
