Pinks + Nudes

I've been going through an upheaval at work the last few weeks because the team I was on disbanded. Rumors had been swirling for awhile, so I can't say it was a huge surprise when it happened. However, I did have a hard time wrapping my head around the abrupt end to the team and how things quickly escalated afterwards. Everyone was placed on brand new teams -- some as soon as the following week. Unfortunately I was one of the unlucky ones who didn't get much of a say in where I landed.

A new team also meant a new seat, and so I went from a corner cubicle to a middle cubicle... one without an accompanying coat hook! With the temperatures dropping now, that just won't do. So I snagged a random chair that doesn't really belong to anyone and have been using it as my personal coat rack. It also doubles as a guest chair when others pay a visit. Well, except on days like today when I'm wearing a pink jacket (lest anyone think guys would be caught owning pink outerwear).

9 Ways - Blue Peplum Top

If a favorite clothing item is defined by the number of wears, then this peplum top wins hands down as my best summer yearly purchase. Now I'll be honest here... peplum was not a love at first sight trend for me. Being the slow adopter that I am, I need to see the trend hit the masses before I start envisioning myself giving it a try. But once I do, I dive in head first. For under $30, I'd say I've gotten my money's worth from this blue peplum top, from casual outfits on humid summer days all the way through chilly fall mornings in layers.
9 ways to wear: baby blue peplum top
Outfit details:
Row 1: one, two, three
Row 2: one, two, three
Row 3: one, two, three
