Yes, it's Spring, but here I am in a cowl neck, flannel, and corduroy!
#1 was the first time I felt the rubric truly saved the day. I went down my list and threw on a bright (orange top), dark (pants), structure (gold button cardi), waist detail (buttoning the cardi at waist)... and then realized I needed a tough element, but I was kind of "out of room" as far as clothing went. The pants covered my boots, so I slapped on this DIY leather cuff watch (#2). I'd made it to hold my furbaby photos. The guys at work thought it was pretty cool!
#3 was a trip out for tacos. I wanted something cozy, so I wore my flannel despite the season and brightened it up with the citron jacket and engineer jeans.
#4-5 was my Friday outfit. It was a jeans day, but I wanted to debut this hi-low top I'd purchased over the winter, so I needed a slim leg. Since I haven't bought slim denim yet, I went for my J. Crew cords. Chose the jacket because I liked how the curved hem mirrored that of the top. I felt a little like a ring master from the circus, but who says that's a bad thing? When the guys were discussing which of them was most fashionable on the team (they always comment on one another's ties... pretty fun to watch), they did comment that I had the most personal style. :)
