As a freelancer, “dressing down” has been one of my favorite concepts and, sometimes, best(est) friend. Sweaters, denim, oversized comic shirts – name them, I embrace ’em. Once in a while I need to meet at corporate offices and I lose all sense of style I feel I previously had. Tried to harness corporate sensibility with a few casual undertones, hence, dressy pants with beanies. Fortunately for me the meeting got cancelled. Something tells me had it pushed through I would’ve been kicked out of the building. Okay, probably not as brutal as that but I would’ve been forced to remove the beanie (presumably) leaving me with the worst hair ever known to man.
In love with this top a few sizes too large. At some point I got tired of trying to pull it up so I just let it fall – my dignity with it. Still trying to figure out this print – some sort of cross between galactic-a and the earth post-UFO attack – but I really do like it. It’s a fresher take on the (borderline trite) galaxy print I’ve been seeing everywhere. Although, ironically, this “freshness” was on sale and, therefore, technically not very fresh.
Unless otherwise needed, I’m probably keeping the dressy pants back in my closet and sticking to casual wear. Although it is the month of love so…maybe dressy dresses? That might just lead to a post-Valentine’s entry. We’ll see. Happy (post) Valentine’s, everyone! Kisses from my screen to yours. :*
