Take One, Pass It on: Day 25

DSC_0055So, are you sick of seeing me in navy blue yet? Yes, I’m wearing it again today, but at least this time I’m pairing it with a different color: olive green. I’m a big fan of the navy/olive combination, even if I don’t seem to wear it all that often.

DSC_0048This cardigan is a new-ish item in my closet, and I’m not sure how I feel about it yet. The particular shade of green has a bit more yellow/brown undertones than I would prefer, but I think I can make it work. Hopefully it doesn’t remind you too much of baby poop (or is that just me?). Regardless, I was very glad to have this cardigan today as I sat through a dissertation defense (not mine, obviously) and a few meetings–the air conditioning was downright frigid. #summerinthesouth

And the infatuation with navy blue continues. I definitely go through phases in terms of my favorite neutral, and I’m in my (navy) blue phase right now. Looking back at my archives, it seems that navy blue is a color I tend to favor in the fall.

Anyway, this infatuation is perhaps why I chose to pair yesterday’s blush top with navy blue pants. I added my pearl necklace, as I’ve seen a similar look on Fran and loved it. This outfit worked out fine for a day of working from home for half the day–the kiddo is still sick. Fingers crossed he can head back to daycare tomorrow…

Today’s outfit is another one from my list of most repeated looks of the summer. Truthfully, I bought this skirt as a means of getting free shipping during a J.Crew Factory promotion a while back (yes, that old excuse again…), and I ended up really loving it. It’s lined but made of a very lightweight material, which makes for a perfect summer skirt in my mind. Plus, it’s a length that is totally appropriate for work.

So, I really like this outfit, even if I don’t love the way these pictures turned out. My hair is a mess, I look a bit dazed, and my necklace is all kinds of wonky…but that’s real life these days, friends! Let’s call it loss for my vanity but a win for authenticity.

DSC_9136As I’ve mentioned several times before, I used to really hate floral prints. It didn’t matter what the color scheme or pattern was, if there was a flower on it, I hated it. I assumed that all floral prints belonged on my grandmother’s couch and not on my body.

DSC_9121Well, fast-forward 10 years, and here I am loving on some florals–clearly, I’ve gotten over my aversion to them. For this floral button-up, I went a little tomboy by pairing it with my utility jacket and boyfriend jeans. Next time around, maybe I’ll try it with a skirt? Any suggestions are welcome!
