What I'm Wearing: A Mixed Bag

Do you ever just wake up in the morning and start throwing clothes on until it looks right? That was me this morning. I knew I wanted to wear my new skinny cords and the orange blazer caught my eye, so I just went from there. As I was digging through my sleeveless tops drawer, this white floral number jumped out at me and I knew it would go perfectly. It picks up the orange in the blazer and adds interest to the two solid pieces.  I wanted to play with a few of the colors in the printed top so I added my new Christian Siriano for Payless shoes and a mustard belt.

And so I ended up with a comfortable, work appropriate outfit that says "I know what I am doing." Fake it til' you make it, right? This look actually kind of goes against  my normal grain of clothing. Corduroy pants and no heels? I barely recognize myself, but that chick in the photo looks pretty neat, so maybe I will let that alter-ego out on the town more often.

Blazer: thrifted from Savers, Skinny Cords: Rue 21, Printed Top: Aeropostale, Shoes: Christian Siriano for Payless, Necklace: Forever 21 (3+ years old)

Thank you so much for stopping by! Your comments always make me giddy like a school girl on a sugar high. Leave your link so I can creep on you. The good kind of creeping. Not the kind where I hang your pictures in my room or anything. (awkward shuffle)

Fashionably yours,
