My Outfit Monday: Stress Blues
It's the first day of our new weekly feature, My Outfit Monday! At the start of each week, one of us will show you what we're wearing, either from that day or from sometime over the weekend. We love looking at other bloggers' outfits for fashion inspiration and thought it was time we jump on board. It's great to see how people mix things, the chances they take, the hits and misses. We're not saying our looks are always perfect, and that's sort of the point. Let's all work on our personal style together! We'll tell you where we got our clothes, whether it's Saks (not likely), Target (likely) or free from a friend (very likely). We'd love to see your outfits, too. Definitely share your own pictures on our Facebook page.
It would figure that on the inaugural day, I woke up a ball of nervous stress. I have sooooo much to do this week. Five stories to write, reporting in strange parts of town, blogs, deadlines. And what's more is, I FORGOT TO DO MY TAXES. I did them first thing today, but man, my nerves are shot.
Also, the dog was being a total pill. Exhibit A:
Stuart was not interested in My Outfit Monday. He was only concerned that I pay attention to him, and NOW.
I finally got him out of the picture (mostly). Bad dog! Bad! Here's the full look.
I needed comfort today, and fortunately my job allows jeans. The jeggings are from Old Navy, and they're comfortable enough to sleep in. I have crashed in them before, sad to say. The shoes are Max Studio, scored at TJ Maxx for more than half-off. The shirt and chain necklace are both from Target (see?). The grandpa cardigan, which has a handkerchief hem, is Pink Rose from Macy's. It's snuggly and paper thin, an acceptable weight for this time of year. The purse (a.k.a., Heavy Spinal Curve Bag of Terror) is from Revolve Clothing Exchange in St. Pete -- $18! And to top it off, I went for a huge, sparkly cocktail ring from Dillard's to remind me that the weekend is just five days away. Sigh.
I think it's a little monochromatic. I could join the Navy with all this blue (ba-dum-cha!). But it was all I could do to get out of the house without putting the dog up for adoption, so there we have it.
What are you wearing today?
