Today's outfit was possibly the most controversial/conversational of my documented sartorial choices yet - my co-workers had mixed feelings regarding the bright coral with the black and the tights with the shorts, and my mother was not a fan of the ensemble for work, but the ladies at the bank and our product manager at work all had my back. I even got several random compliments in WalMart this evening.
Speaking of, I somehow managed to waste my entire evening wandering around that ridiculous superstore, which is almost my explanation for why my photos were taken in the dark (which, in turn, is why they're grainy and a bit off in terms of color). New rule: never, ever go in WalMart without a list, budget and time limit.
I did happen across some fab new finds though, so my loss of time and money is your gain in terms of content. It also means that I am too damn tired to write any more, so you also get off easy tonight with a short post - lucky you!
In spite of the largely positive public reactions, I'm not 100% sure I love this look. This sleeveless black blouse is one of my favorites (largely for the drapey keyhole cutout on the back), but the length hides the sailor buttons on the shorts and the black & orange combo makes me think of Halloween. I have a floral blouse with a slightly cropped length that I'm thinking will make a much better partner for the shorts next time.
I really, seriously have to go to bed now. I keep falling asleep every time I blink.
