Pride

Welcome to Friday!  Boy, I thought this week was going to turn out to be crappy, but in the end it turned out pretty good. I had been fighting with an issue at work with some software that I use and had been on the phone with the vendor for days trying to figure it out.  Finally on Wednesday afternoon I did figure it out - all by myself!  The vendor was no help to me at all, I just played with some settings and tested things until I finally figured it out all on my own.  I was pretty dang proud of myself!!


This is my outfit from yesterday.  I have been wanting to pair these items together for awhile and just hadn't done so yet.  Lots of blue, but I love it!  I had to laugh, I was in the restroom washing my hands and this lady comes in and right away says "I love your outfit!" So I smiled and said "thank you."  And then she said "it kind of reminds me of the school uniforms I had to wear in the 60's"  I laughed.  This skirt has often reminded me of a Catholic school uniform, but I don't mind so much.  I love plaid and I love the retro feel of it!

Sweater - Christopher and Banks, from cousin
Scarf - S&D
Skirt - LOFT, thrifted
Tights and boots - Target
Bag - Jenna Lou Designs 


So anyway, to celebrate my small victory at work (and because my boss said my STO is close to hitting it's cap again), I decided to treat myself to a three day weekend - instead of today off though I took off Monday.  And I think this will prove to be a very useful thing, it's Spring Forward this weekend with Daylights Savings Time and I have a much harder time with adjusting to this one!  Having the ability to sleep in on Monday and acclimate to the new time a bit more slowly sounds pretty darn good to me!  Have a great weekend everyone!

  7. Hooray for blue! I've been loving blue a whole lot lately. I also love the plaid skirt. I tend to think of red or black/white as more school uniform-ish imo. Plus your skirt has awesome buttons.

    I'm lucky because my spring break is this next week, so I have a whole week to regulate myself to the lost hour.

  13. Combining shades of blue is one of my very favorite things to do. This all looks so great on you! I love how you tied your scarf. Yay for you figuring out your computer issue! That's what my husband does for work, so I can fully appreciate the frustrations of spending time on the phone with people trying to figure issues out...blech.
