Mix, Match, and Repeat

Some clothing pieces just look right when worn together. The camel cardigan + burgundy blouse top half may look familiar, as could the lace pencil skirt + leopard pumps bottom half. Piece the two halves together and voila! A brand-new outfit.

All Business

Weekly work customer meetings call for a slightly dressier attire than usual. And I'm not the only one with these thoughts. My coworker showed up in the male version of my outfit -- a striped dress shirt in the same color scheme tucked into black pants. Seems like a fairly standard work uniform, right? Yet we were the only ones in the room who could almost pass for twins... if only he had worn red shoes instead of black ones.

Fall Preview

I love everything about today's outfit, so much so that I must've exuded way too much happiness for a regular workday. More coworkers chatted with me than usual and I even received a few compliments! Well, with the exception of DH calling me "Gramps" after seeing my sweater cardigan.

I used to only wear short cardigans, but have found myself preferring longer lengths as I've aged. The Caslon collegiate v-neck cardigan in heather camel-navy stripe (sold here) is already a closet favorite. Made of 60% cotton/20% viscose/20% nylon, the cardigan is well made and very soft to the touch -- not at all thin with loose weaving. The horizontal stripes on the sleeves add interest for an overall preppy look. For reference, I'm wearing size XS; measurements are: 14" shoulder-to-shoulder, 28" in length.

While my cardigans are increasing in length, the sleeves on my blouses are only getting shorter. This is an uh duh moment for me, but layering is so much easier with sleeveless blouses! They're the perfect base layer because there's no need to deal with fabric bunching at the elbows or fear of fabric stretching. I've seriously been living under a rock all this time. The J.Crew Factory sleeveless blouse in vintage cabernet (sold here - 50% off) is an example of my growing love for sleeveless blouses. I really love this shade of burgundy. There is a slight sheen to the polyester fabric in person, but certainly not enough to cheapen the look. The blouse runs TTS but is long. For reference, I'm wearing size 00 P; measurements are: 12.5" shoulder-to-shoulder, 27" in length. Size 00 measurements are: 12.5" shoulder-to-shoulder, 29" in length.
