My promise

Even though my new job is not the typical office job and instead allows me to work from anywhere, I’ve made a promise to myself that I will incorporate some business-appropriate clothing into my daily life … despite the fact that I could easily work in my pajamas most days. But come on—would this girl actually wear pajamas past 8 in the morning? No way. Here’s the breakdown:

Blouse: JC Penney (similar)
Skirt: Old Navy (similar)
Pumps: Nine West via Goodwill (similar)
Bag: Brahmin (c/o Vogue)
Sunnies: Franco Sarto via Marshalls (similar)
Ring: Kenneth Jay Lane via Giveaway (earring version here

Why would I wear pajamas when I have some amazing pencil skirts just waiting in my closet to be worn? This particular one has the subtlest plaid running through it. I also love the mix of seafoam and gray; it’s almost as if spring is meeting fall when the two are mixed. What a great combo for a late-August day!
