What I'm Wearing: Shades of Blue


Greetings fashionable earthlings. I hope this Monday didn't steal your soul. That would be bad. 
Has anyone hit the panic button on buying Christmas gifts yet? I started to get nervous today when I realized there are only 13 days until Christmas. Is that nuts to anyone else? I could hardly say I didn't know it was coming since retailers have been shoving it my face for 2.5 months. I just woke up and realized that I will be in a  load of trouble if I don't get my butt in gear ASAP.

Today I was going for casual comfort as it was just a lock myself in my office and get as much done as possible day. I got this pussy bow (Did you just giggle? It's okay if you did. I do too) blouse at the Goodwill with the tags still on it. I love vertical stripes, they make you look long and lean. Who doesn't want that? I paired it with a cobalt cropped blazer, turquoise and cognac belt, jeggings and some slouchy comfortable boots. I didn't even wear any jewelry today, which is a feat in itself as I tend to want to pile on the accessories. 



Blazer: Love Culture, Striped Top: Goodwill, Jeggings: Maurices, Boots: The Shoe Dept., Belt: Michael Kors via Clothes Mentor

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,

Kassi
