All Business




Head to Toe: Blouse, Banana Republic via Consignment shop; Blazer, Marshall's; Tights, Mom's; Skirt, Mom's; Heels, Target.

Thursday I needed an outfit that was a bit more formal and professional. I was very tempted to go shopping for a new outfit, but I settled for the next best thing--raiding my mom's closet. She is stocked with those classic pieces like pencil skirts and blazers that never go out of style. I actually gave her this blazer because I never had an occasion to wear it. It's hard to tell in the photo, but it's a brocade pattern, and the tights are textured as well. I love mixing textures and fabrics in a mono-chromatic outfit, and I needed one splash of color with the orange blouse.
As for the blazer, I guess we'll have to share.
