Feeling NAUTICAL: Monday/February 28

Well.. this ensemble of clothes were supposed to be worn last Friday as my usual casual Friday. Thanks to the temperamental weather we had, I did not go to work. Rather than putting together a new one for Monday, I just used the one that I already had from last Friday. Yes, I am lazy like that.

Here are the details:

Jacket/blazer: navy blue with white trim (ponte knit) - TravelSmith
Long sleeves tee: white - Inc.
Jeans: dark washed boot cut - Express
Shoes: tan leather with tassle with stack/wood heels - Franco Sarto
Handbag: pebble leather hobo large tan - Dooney & Bourke
Accessories: light weight cotton spring scarf (made in India) - Ebay; long bead gold tone necklace (not pictured) - HSN; gold earrings (no brand)

The Warm BROWN-ish: Thursday/February 24

Today is the first day back to work after a long weekend (need more days!). It's almost weekend again  - yay for that - it's not snowing nor raining but it's cold. So I try to keep myself warm (especially since my office feels like an artic most of the time).

Three quarter folded sleeves light knit brown jacket (Chartered Club) - the neck is also foldable (like funnel neck style)
Cashmere blend (cotton) V-neck sweater: orange (Mossimo)
Jeans: flared leg antique wash (Express)
Shoes: dark brown croco embossed wedges (AK - Anne Klein)

An ORANGE A Day.. (Friday: February 11)

I picked up my clothes to work for today last night and as predicted, I went for the 'go-to' outfit, which is jeans. It's kind of boring I admit. But what can I say, it's just so easy (& comfortable) outfit to wear. Especially on Friday.  I made an effort though to make it  interesting. I added an orange (it's called Mandarin) handbag as a popping factor. Yummy!

Here are the details:

Jacket: light brown cotton(!! I know it's winter but what the heck) (Old Navy)
Mock neck: bone color cotton (St. John's Bay)
Vest: white/bone/dark brown striped (vintage)
Jeans: dark washed skinny (GAP)
Shoes: dark brown croco embossed wedges (AK of Anne Klein)
Handbag: croco embossed leather orange/mandarin color (Brahmin Daphne)
Scarf: yellow wool - made in India (from Ebay) - I forgot to put it in display when the pic was taken.
Accessories: dangle yellow earrings (no brand)
