The first outfit (Tuesday) was pretty simple- I took a dress I wear pretty often because it's so comfortable, and layered my new Tulle jacket on top. I accessorized with grey tights, my flat, black boots, my new brown headband and some fun chartreuse earrigs and button ring. Basically, the only new pieces were the jacket and headband. I ran around town all day in this. I had a bunch of errands to deal with and it was a perfect outfit for the day.
Yesterday (Wednesday), I wanted to glam it up a little more, so I put my new Brooklyn Industries skirt together with my new satin top and my new Christian Siriano for Payless shoes. I made the outfit a little more funky with the addition of the teal tights. It actually made for a someone monochromatic look with my shoes and tights. I finished the look with a necklace from Forever 21 and went off to work. First thing in the morning, I got two remarsk from women at work about how I looked like a French maid. At first I was a tad insulted, until the men at work said to me, "It's not a bad thing." Anyway, it's funny that was the reaction I got because when I was in the store trying on the skirt, I had a black jacket on, too and Beth said that it looked kind of like a uniform. I figured the soft, satin top helped get rid of that feel (not to mention the teal tights and ocean blue shoes), but I guess I figured wrong. I felt great in this outfit all day, despite the "Can you get my room next, Miss?" and "Housekeeping?" remarks that I dealt with all day.
