Happy Monday friends! For most of you here in the US it's probably a short week due to Thanksgiving. It's sort of a short week for me, I still get all of Thanksgiving Day off, but thanks to working in health care that stops for nothing, I do have to work at least part of the day on Black Friday this year. It's mostly due to my boss still being out on her leave, she just wants me here part of the day in case any of the clinics have facility related problems. If all is calm by lunchtime though I'm free to go home for the rest of my day. Could be worse I suppose!
Anyway, taking the sting off of Monday, is Inspiration Monday and today's pick is Jenna Dewan-Tatum, aka Mrs. Sexiest Man Alive (she's married to Channing Tatum, whom People just picked as this year's sexiest man).
I really want a sweater like hers - it looks like a blanket, yet it's stylish! I sadly do not have such a sweater, so I kind of went after the stripes and boots instead for my casual look this last Friday.
T-shirt - Maurices
Sweater - Jones New York (from cousin)
Jeans - Old Navy
Boots - Target
Sunglasses - Lillian's
Bag - Coach via Ebay
Jewelry - S&D
So we sometimes practice with our music group on Friday nights, so we were over at our director's house and it was an early practice because my director had a work event, so I figured I'd treat MY sexiest man alive, aka the Pants Monkey, to a date at one of our local taprooms after practice. I figured my work outfit would transition well to a date outfit. I can't tell you how many of the other members of the group commented on my outfit. "Looks like Beth is dressed for what she's doing afterward tonight." I'm like, I did wear this to work all day too! I think it had something to do with the boots. I received more compliments on these boots on Friday and it's silly - I have had these boots for the better part of eight years I bet!
Anyway, we did go have a nice date at our taproom and I was laughing with Mr. Monkey about the comments and he said "well, they don't normally see you dressed up all that much." I suppose he is right, we wear a uniform to our masses and often to practices I go in a sweatshirt and jeans! They don't get the stylish Bethie very often!
