It’s Wednesday again and guess what- it’s still raining. I think WIWW has seriously cursed the weather around here. Anyway, I tried to insert a little cheery color into my outfit today to help brighten things up… but that’s not really my thing so once again I’m mostly draped in dark colors.
We’ve got an office retreat today from 8:00am-1:00pm, and by “retreat’ I mean we’ll be sitting in the basement of the library today and hopefully we’ll all make it out alive. But for that reason, I wasn’t super worried about being fancy and decided to be a little more fun.
Point of note: so many of my clothes and shoes right now have some sort of ruffle on them. It’s nearly impossible to buy clothes without ruffles right now.
My pants look a little stretched and pulled, but that’s just because they’re straight out of the dryer. By the time I got to work today they were back to they’re usual self, haha!
What you can’t see in the picture above is that my pants have the slightest pin stripe going on. I have hemmed them up 5inches even though I bought the petite size! Let me just say that I absolutely hate how “petite” and “ankle” and “short” labels still assume that you’re over five feet tall. Well I am not! I’m five feet on the nose and because of that everything needs heels or a hem. Ugh.
My shoes have the slightest snake skin pattern on them, I’ve had them for years and they’re one of my go to summer shoes because the heel is only about two inches and the front is wide enough for my big fat feet.
Here’s the run down on where it all came from:
- Cropped yellow top: 5*7*9 (over 3 years ago)
- Shirt: Ann Taylor loft (within the past year)
- Pants: New York & Company (within the past 3 years)
- Shoes: Payless (within the past 3 years)
- Bracelet: I honestly do not remember, probably Forever 21 though.
So my friends, what are you wearing today? Leave it in the comments or hook up with me on The Pleated Poppy. Dutch is just dying to know….
