All neutral but far from boring. The mix of stripes and python print is an adventurous take on the standard pencil skirt + cardigan combination.
Oh, I forgot to post a good shot of the shoes worn in Monday’s post. So here you go!
Halloween is my favorite holiday but I’ve gotten lazy about it the last couple of years. We haven’t put out our decorations (mainly because we don’t get many trick-or-treaters) nor have I gone full tilt with dressing up. So sad. I recently got this delicious orange tank and it seemed like a great start to Halloween inspired attire. We’ll see if I actually dress up this year (no plans to do so yet) but in case I don’t at least I paid a little homage to the season.
Stripes cut on the bias – so flattering. Added to bold colors and pointed toe heels is a fun way to do office style.
I’ve got a couple of fun things coming up. I’m giving away 2 tickets to the Be Well Expo in Pasadena on ThinkBriteBeBrite.com. We’re taking the horses camping this weekend and I’ve been invited to a Halloween inspired event at Goodwill. October is always one of my favorite months. The weather is perfect all around the country and of course, there’s Halloween. Will you be dressing up this year?

I wish I could tell you that adding my glasses to this outfit was a style choice but the reality is I waited too long to get my prescription and ran out of contacts. Glasses are a fun accessory though and I like how they transform the look. These shoes are so gorgeous with their suede orange ankle straps. They really add an unexpected touch to any outfit.

Some of you know that I’m not actually going to an office anymore (I left my job last September) but I do still go to work (check out Think Brite Be Brite to see what I’m up to) each day and dress the part. I’ve worn this skirt with several different tops but this is the first time I wore a classic white button down.

I’m very happy with this combination! Not only does it look striking but it is so comfortable. The lightweight knit skirt has a snug fit to offer shape but is made of a great stretchable fabric. The tank and lace t-shirt are also fitted but comfortable. I can’t believe how sharp this shirt looks with white underneath. All the other times that I’ve worn it, I usually add a colored tank so it’s not too dark. The hot pink accents add pizazz. A sexy get up that reveals very little. Isn’t that fun?

I instantly fell in love with this skirt when I first saw it. I didn’t even bother to think what I owned to go with it because I just had to have it. Luckily, I’ve been able to find several things in my wardrobe to wear it with. Whew!

I love mixing shades of one color. Pairing royal blue and aqua is always stunning. The addition of a striped button down keeps it from looking too casual and provides some simple pattern to an otherwise solid outfit.
