The Great Debate I...

Blogging at lunch again today.  I do not really like to do that but I missed my post yesterday and I wanted to ensure that I got one up today.
Without giving away my political leanings...
I thought I would try to give a nod to tonight's very important US Presidential Debate between President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney.
Yes, I know this is actually the second debate between the two candidates but I did not select anything "special" the last time out.
This time...

In the spirit of our American political season, I chose a "Red, White & Blue ensemble."  Is there anything else that would be more fitting?

What do you think?

LOVE this blouse.

One problem, it is not as warm as the weather man promised it would be. 

Thankfully I keep a sweater at the office for just such "wardrobe malfunctions."

Hee Hee

This blouse is truly wonderful.  It just a joy to wear.

Lightweight.  VERY "girlie"... which I like.

Perhaps even just a little "sexy?"

Certainly very elegant in my book.
 LOVE this new skirt, too.

You may recall that I recently acquired this classic item from Kohl's... "Yes!"... Kohl's!

Honestly, I am not a huge fan of Kohl's but for less than $30 this skirt was just too good of a deal not to at least try.

Vibrant color.  Great cut.  Fully lined. 

Great classic pencil skirt.  I foresee years of wear at work and at play for this one.

What do you think?
And the finished ensemble...


What do you think?

Before I close I want to offer my best wishes to our two candidates.  I am confident that both of you are intelligent and driven.  I am confident that both of you care and want the best for our country and the rest of the world.
I wish you both the best of luck tonight.  Your country is watching.  Many around the world are watching.  It is a critical evening for you both.
I ask only one thing... be truthful.  Tell us all what you think, where you plan to lead us.  We are also bright people.  We will make an intelligent decision.  All we need is an honest comparison.
In the end, no matter who the winner of the election turns out to be...
I hope that our President will always do their best to consider the many above the desires of the few.
