Funny thing about sandals....I actually had to get a new pair when I was downtown the other evening because the pair I was wearing broke at dinner! I had three minutes to spare before my fave lil neighborhood shoe shop downtown closed so I high-tailed it to Ether, where they let me peruse until I found something I liked and could wear on my feet for the night. I just snagged a T-strap black leather sandal....and a cute brown clutch. Just what I needed---another excuse to buy something cute! :)
The weather has been a total mix lately--mid 60, gray but warm feeling days and 80 degree sunshine weather. So sometimes deciding on what to wear can be a challenge!
But below you'll see a smattering of what I've been wearing to work and out-about the last few weeks. I've been trying to mix it up and wear trouser jeans or shorts a bit more than usual:
Skirt (thrifted), cardigan-cami-ballet flats all old Target
TOTALLY NEW LOOK OUTSIDE COMFORT ZONE:
tan & gray plaid walking shorts-Penney's, gray ruffled tunic--Target clearance, white cardi--old Walmart clearance, platform wedges (purchased from my gal Heather)
Black bermuda shorts-Target, ballet flats-Nordies Rack, black floral button-up-Penney's clearance
COMFY FOR DRIVE HOME:
Red tunic (Penney's & altered by mom), my poor ol' Target sandals that gave out, gray cardi-Target, shorts--no clue they're so many years old!
White button-up: Target; Trouser jeans: Banana Republic outlet; nude wedges: Nine West outlet; khaki blazer: passed-on from friend
OFFICE TRIP & ERRANDS:
CK dress via Costco; adorable Steve madden sandals via Ross; belt & cardi via Target
Trouser jeans via BR outlet (recent); blue tank: OLD; cardi via Penney's clearance (recent); tan platforms via friend
WORK: Same dress, Different twist
Dress: Target (recent) & Cardi: Target
Tan platforms: friend
TODAY's "STANDARD" WORK UNIFORM (& HAPPY HR):
cream cardi & gray skirt: both Target (& available still); cream sandals: clearance
necklace: one of Mom's donations :)
Definitely some new looks thrown in with some old stand-bys. I'm thinking I'll wear the floral skirt from the first picture with black flats, a black blazer and some color underneath for my big interview coming up in the next few weeks-----any other thoughts on what to wear to show authority yet fun personality for a job that's somewhat out of my league?! ;)
And....for real, keep or return the blue sandals pictured up top?!
