What I'm Wearing: Nothing Rhymes With Orange

Hello gorgeous people! How are you all doing today? Does it seem like this week is already super long to anyone else? Being an adult is super lame. If I could go to school for the rest of my life I totally would, but alas I got a degree years ago and I'm a working girl now (not in the street corner, "Hey baby, come here" sort of way). Working girls need professional attire. I push the boundaries a lot with what I wear to work. A lot of it is very non-traditional, but I think that personal style shouldn't just be for the weekends. So far I've gotten away with it.

This is me trying to be professional (we saw clients today) and keep my funky factor alive. How did I do? Is an orange blazer too much for the office? I think not. Does it bum anyone else out that there is no rhyming word for orange? I like to rhyme because I'm secretly an amazing rapper. Also, Dr. Seuss and I share a birthday - it's in my blood.



Blazer: Thrifted from Savers, Pants: New York & Co., Top: Express, 
Shoes: Elder Beerman, Necklace: Wild Iris, Belt: Wal-Mart

  1. You brighten my day- for many reasons. And I don't say that to many people, mainly because they make my day sad. Orange-blorange.

  6. What a great outfit. You always pair such great colors together, Kassi! and I sat here thinking about what rhymes with orange for a good three minutes (which is a long time if you think about it). I've got nothing! sorange? dorange? It's safe to say I won't be a rapper ever...

  9. Kassi, I had no idea you had a real job and that your office did not involve a street corner? HAHA! Love the look, the orange jacket looks great and so does the patterned shirt and jewelry! You know...oddly I never thought of words that rhyme with orange, hmmmm ok but we do know of words that rhyme with lime like dime, time, chime...lol!

  29. I think the orange blazer is both professional and says, I don't blend into the walls! I think outside the box!!! Love it! You kept everything else neutral so it works!

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
