LBD for (Winter) Work: February 22nd, 2011
Outfit: Black dress: Gap (handed down from mom); Striped tee: Gap; Tights: ?; Boots: Diba, Necklace: Gift; Boot socks: Target
This is a dress I would probably wear a lot more often across all seasons if not for the sleeves. Their fluttery nature (which I love!), does not allow for a lot of seamless layering. But, hey, after trying layers underneath my plaid dress, I figured I’d give it a shot with this one. I think the results were work-appropriate and dressed up what can be a pretty fancy frock. Added some knee-high socks for a smidgen of extra interest (and warmth!) and called it a day.
Not much else to report. Work has been fine, but it’s always rough coming back after a long weekend. One plus: It’s our pet-themed week, so a staff member has been bringing a dog every day…excited to see whose dog we have tomorrow! I had to put my selfish side away and admit that Arwen’s still a bit crazy to be some three-year-olds’ first doggie experience. She’s full o’ love, but she can be full o’ jumping, too. The kids have been LOVING the dogs, though, and I’ve been loving having doggies to pet all day. We must get a therapy dog, stat. Brings out a whole new side of some of our kids, especially those who are less verbal.
Speaking of Ms. Arwen, she was an ESCAPE ARTIST yesterday! We’ve been crating her during the day for awhile now due to lots o’ destruction, but yesterday her cage must not have been latched properly and she was just chillin’ by the door, waiting to greet me. Pretty minimal damage, considering she had unexpected run of the entire apartment. Might have to give her another chance soon.
