What I Wore Wednesday IV

Welcome back for the fourth edition of WIWW! It’s still raining and dreary out, but it’s finally not freezing so I’ve been in sort sleeves all week. It’s a pretty exciting time around the office right now, I work at a community college and graduation is tomorrow night. The program I work in has lots of graduates moving on so we’ve had award ceremonies, lunches, professional development, etc. Today is the first day I have nothing on my schedule but regular day to day tasks!

We normally keep it pretty business casual around here, but especially so now that the students are gone. Surprise, surprise- I’ve got more navy, elastic waist, comfortable clothes on today.

 

 

 

I really am all about being outwardly professional and inwardly super comfortable all day long.

My top has a boat neck and a peacock feather pattern, and the sleeves are that extra wide drop style so I’m cardigan free this week. My pants have got to be at least 5 years old and in ironing them this morning I noticed how badly I need new brown dress pants- but man are they hard to find! I don’t want cream, I don’t want beige, I don’t want stripes- I just want plain old brown pants. Also, I only want them if they’re from the Gap because their petite length pants are the only pants I can find that I don’t have to hem shorter. I’ll be keeping my eyes out for a sale!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In addition to my simple little outfit, I picked out some really cute accessories. I have to admit, I’ve been wearing the same earrings everyday for months now so I really needed to switch it up.

 

I’ve been using this purse all week- it’s work appropriate beige, but Stephanie appropriate metallic :). Then I’ve got a gold watch bracelet and some dangling pearl earrings.

 

 

 

Here’s the run down on where it’s all from:

  • Satin shirt: honestly, I have no idea. Sorry!
  • Brown pants: Kohl’s, about 5 years ago
  • Shoes: Walmart, about 5 years ago (you’d never know!)
  • Purse: TJ Maxx, Ecko Red brand, within the past 2 years
  • Bracelet: Modcloth.com, within the past 2 years
  • Earrings: Etsy.com, within the past 2 years

 

So tell me- what are YOU wearing today? Tell me in the comments, or join me in linking up the The Pleated Poppy!

    • thank you! And your yellow belt is so cute- I seriously need to invest in some spring colored things, if Massachusetts ever decides to have spring weather that is! 🙂

  1. I’m all sorts of H&Med out today. Most of my office is gone so I dressed down a bit. Simple blue khaki-style pants, skinny leg, rolled up at the bottom, and a baggy/long beige button down with a belted waist 🙂 also, love the bracelet! modcloth will be where I go when I have all the money in the world to spend.
