Another Lunchtime Post...

Hello All,

I will not waste your time with excuses... I just have not had time to blog...

Today I am getting an outfit post up for the first time since May 4th, yes, 26 days ago.  Oh well.

Anyway, this one will be very quick... not unlike how today's outfit came together this morning.  For those that read my blog, you know that is not normal.  I am an obssessive planner, especially when it comes to my daily attire.  I rarely do what I did today... completely change my mind.

With that in mind, be kind, this ensemble came together fast... no time to think or re-think.

The ensemble...

This skirt is the reason that I changed my mind about what I would wear today.  I noticed the cool little "animal" print slit and it began to call to me.  Anyone else ever have such an experience?  I just had to figure out how to wear it today... I HAD to.  Hee Hee

Seriously, I do think the little pattern in the slit is unique and cool.  What do you think?

I went with this wine colored sheer blouse mostly because I wanted to wear it... despite the fact that I am not completely sure it goes with this skirt.  It is light & so feminine.  I love wearing it.

The pattern in the skirt is actually brown but when paired with this particular blouse I think it comes off alomst burgandy.  Well?  Do you go along with that?

And the two in their full glory.

Finally, I added my brown "chunky" shooties that I don't believe you have seen here before.  As I said, this came together FAST this morning so I forgot to photograph the shoes.  Sorry.

So... how did I do?

Gotta go, need to get a little something in me before my afternoon meeting.

See Ya!

Hot Outside - Hot Inside...

OK, truth... I could not help but laugh a little when I decided to go with that title for today's post.

There is good reason though...

I went all demure & ladylike all week.  It's Friday.  No Aunt Jordan tonight.  Soccer games tomorrow so sis gave me the night off.  Hee Hee

I am meeting the girls for drinks after work tonight so I thought something more my "style" would be good.

I even have to snicker a little as I type that.  What "style"?  Hee Hee

Anyway, today's ensemble.

Simple black & white combination.  My staple.  My go-to.  My "comfort zone".

I started with a great turtle neck.  It is May.  It will be 90 degrees today.  I know.  I like a great sweater. 

Paired the sweater with my beloved black leather skirt.  Naturally.

But at the last minute... I opted for a 'pop' of color.  These shoes really are quite lovely.  At least I think so.

And the entire ensemble...

Okay, the title of the post VERY quickly...

I have mentioned in the past (More Polka Dots Post) how awesome my boss truly is.  LOVE her.

Well, today I arrived at the office early so I don't feel bad about slipping out for "happy hour" a little earlier than I would normally take off on a Friday.  When my boss arrived, she spotted me in the hallway and said this, "My, it is as hot in here as it is out there." as she was checking out my wardrobe.  Then she says, "Jordan, I want those shoes.  Not kidding, I want them."

And with that little comment a blog post title is born.  Hee Hee

Well, enough with the blogging... back to work...

Not What I Was Planning Today...

Today I am showing you a new sweater that I picked up off a clearance rack (well, online) at Kohl's just a couple of days ago.  It really is not appropriate for a 90 degree day but I cannot help myself.  I just love the color and the collar.  Besides, my office is ALWAYS cold anyway.  Oh, and there is the small fact that I wear many of the same things all year long... not much for following seasonal trends.  This is what happens when you are so fond of black and white and leather.  Hee Hee

Anyway, I actually had not planned to wear this outfit today at all.  As I have mentioned before, I am very good about planning my outfits at night.  This morning was a moment of "blogger inspiration".  Yes, that is a term.  Look it up.

WEBSTER'S:  "Blogger Inspiration" - the moment that someone viewing a cute outfit decides to duplicate it for their own personal wardrobe.

Seriously, look it up.

I digress...

The offending blogs are:




When I was running thru my favorite blogs (just recently discovered these two) this morning, I was drawn to each of these lovely printed skirts.  Immediately I decided to rummage thru my closet... there must be something... something...

Here is what I came up with...

This baby has been hiding out in the darkest corners of my closet for months... maybe years.  Honestly, I am not certain how long it has been since I wore it?  Sad.

I think it's cute, girly.  What do you think?

As I mentioned, I pulled out the new sweater to protect me from the "office elements" (also, a term) and to provide some color.  Besides, I like it and needed only a small reason to wear it.  Hee Hee

Next, pull out the beloved Stuart Wietzman heels that I have shown you many times before...

Taada... an outfit is born...

What do you think?

I feel a bit "girly" again today.  Do not mind saying.

Time for idle chat is over.  Off to make some money.
