Do you ever have one of those mornings where getting dressed is just easy? It doesn't happen to me often, but somehow this morning it all just came together. This teal top was the last item I added to my 30...I had thought about it as I was falling asleep the night before posting my list, and nearly forgot to make the change before I posted. Luckily I did get it in, because it's pretty cool. It's comfy (cotton with some stretch), demure (good sleeves), and has nice detailing that makes it just that much more special (neckline pleats and armbands). You can't tell from this photo, but the shoes are dark brown and the skirt is black. Usually I'll pair one brown item with mostly black, or mostly brown with some black, but today was just one of each. Nice and even-handed. Whatever.
I think my biggest loves about this outfit are the colors and the necklace. Kept me in a good mood all day. And good mood = confident = producing better work (for me, at least). It was a gorgeous 78 degrees out today, too, so it felt good to go bare-legged.
If I had been paying more attention during the day, the black and brown would probably have bothered me more, but since it was another day of hunkering down at my desk, it didn't bother me at all. I wish I could figure out more ways to knot my belt, but I think my current way will work until I find something better.
What items do you reach for when you need a quick put-together outfit?
