Office chic

I feel very office-y in my outfit today.  I'm sure it's the "pencil" feel of this vintage skirt.  But hey, I work in an office, so I suppose it is appropriate!  I was worried this would feel like too much pink, but actually, I like the way it turned out!  Forgive the look below here, was a wee bit tired this morning.

And per usual, our Minnesota spring has taken a step backwards.  It always seems to happen, we get a taste of that hot weather that will be quite prevalent in the summer to come, but Mother Nature has to first remind us that we are still one of the cold states.  So yeah, it was chilly this morning and from what I've heard it's not getting terribly warm today!  So, a longer sleeve blouse felt like a good choice today and I've only worn this one other time so far since I've had it.  It is one of the shirts from my cousin.  And I'm wearing the shoes from her too!  I didn't set out to combine items from her, but the more she's given me the more that has been happening here and there!

And ooh what's this?  I took one of my Megan Mae Buttonflowers and turned it into a wrist corsage.  I got this ribbon necklace with a couple of charms from Stella and Dot but haven't been crazy about it as a necklace.  So, I decided maybe it would make a fun bracelet!  

I think it's pretty darn cute, even if I did have to have the Pants Monkey help me tie it on.  I need to get more bracelets, I love having an arm party in the summertime!  Added a few to my collection last summer, but could use a few more.  I know what I'm looking for on my next shopping trip I guess!

Shirt - Ann Taylor (from cousin)
