Bringing me to my next point, recently I read a short but sweet blog post on dressing for work and I have to say after almost 4 years of blogging I feel like breathing a sigh of relief for someone else saying what I've thought forever. Sure, sometimes for work I love to look polished in a killer outfit I've put together. Other days, more often than not, I just want to wear an outfit like my vacation outfit. I'm running around all day doing a million things with my focus being pulled in all different directions. Usually I've swapped lipstick for chapstick 40 minutes into the morning and by my 5th cup of tea for the day (this is at noon if you don't know my habits) my shoes are off and my feet tucked under my bum in my chair.
Some days I wish I could wear all the layered-glittery-high-heeled outfits I dream of in my head or see in the blogosphere but that just isn't my reality. Since starting this blog I've striven to represent what I actually wear to my job. Maybe you've noticed my "what I wore to work" tags and if its there, that outfit got dragged in to work that day. Sometimes I see people in NYC streetstyle shots or in these phenomenal outfit pictures and I think, "There is no way they could wear that to work in all day," followed very shortly by, "And if they did, why can't they share their secrets to making awesome outfits more comfortable."
But for now, here is what I wore for a day off!
