Time For Citron: April 5th, 2011

Event: Work

Outfit: Citron embellished tee: JCrew Factory Store; Lost Time Skirt: Anthropologie; Boots: Steve Madden; Headband: LOFT Outlet; Necklace/studs: stella & dot; Socks: Target

And the post-shopping sharing continues. I grabbed this tee at the JCrew outlet—-40% off plus my educator’s 15% discount made me a happy camper. I heard a lady asking her friend whether she could pull of this color. Her friend said, “No. Well, maaaaybe with a tan.” I questioned my own choice for about a second and then shrugged and walked up to the counter. I’ll admit it—it pretty much never occurs to me to examine how a color looks on me/use that as a criteria to rule out a purchase. If I like the color itself, I’m probably fine with it. I feel the same way about blogs and magazine articles that more or less instruct/advise people on how to dress for their body, etc. I’m very much a “if I put it on and it makes me feel great, I go for it” person. No rules or guidelines, thanks—-beyond those that keep things work appropriate in my own mind. To me that’s what makes getting dressed fun!

Anywho: another day without tights! It was finally sunny and gorgeous here this afternoon. Arwen and I walked along the lake, I cracked open the windows.  It’s time to get ready for trivia–attempting to defend out trophy for a third win! Think powerful, sports-knowledge-giving thoughts for us.

P.S. Decided to let my morning cup o’ coffee join the photo shoot. I don’t have much time to sip it in relaxation, but I’m loving downing a cup before heading out the door. Ah, caffeine.

And the suited-up for trivia version:
