Can someone please explain to me how personal style bloggers who live in places with REAL winters manage to look all stylish and chic when it's frickin' freezing outside?
White Blouse: Express; Black Sweater: 2nd Hand Brooks Brothers
Wool Pants: Gap; Black Oxfords: DSW
You have just seen the closest you are coming to a full shot of yesterday's outfit. I was not willing to exchange my fingers for a better picture. The magic wasn't happening and my fingers were getting numb.
So, I gave up.
I guess you're going to have to settle for a bit of cheesecake instead.
(I don't mean real cheesecake, either. I was just talking about an up close, mega smiley picture of yours truly.)
Can I also offer you a detailed picture of my shoes and the remaining snow left over from our white Christmas?
I might not have even shared this outfit since it was just assembled to wear to work (IE. black and white dress code mentioned previously). But, I believe it has magical powers. I'm being totally serious.
The first time I wore it, the owner said the one and only positive thing she has ever said to me. She said, "Now, don't you look nice? Why can't we all dress just like that? That's a great example of a black and white outfit." Score one for my ultra conservative, buttoned up look. I didn't have the heart to tell her that really I just wore it because the sweater is cashmere and the pants are lined. (Read: It's super warm.)
Today I wore it for the second time and was informed that they've officially decided to keep me on the schedule AFTER the holidays. This magical outfit not only earned me high praise from the owner, it got me a permanent (super part-time) job. Not. Too. Shabby. Don't you think the good deeds it has done earned it a post? Me too.
