my 9 year old directed yesterday afternoon’s “photo shoot”…
because WrW wasn’t around, i asked taylor if he would snap a few photos of me. not only did he agree, but he got really into it. he was telling me where to stand, to move if i was in the sun too much, to smile more, etc…
and then he started telling me to “move” after every click of the shutter. it was so flippin’ cute!
anyway, i wore this outfit to work yesterday.
i was particularly inspired by kate of twinkle toes and gold dangles.
when i first started my job, i tried to be really professional…meaning, i wore suits.
i hate suits.
pretty soon, suits turned into nice dress pants with pretty tops or the occasional printed wrap dress.
then i started to incorporate shirts, blouses and vests from urban outfitters and other non-work related clothing stores.
once i started thrifting and buying vintage…it was all over. i’m often seen wearing a dress from the 60s, wider hemmed pants with a ruffle blouse, etc…
which can only mean one thing…
comments from the coworkers.
yesterday’s outfit brought on a plethora.
“you look like a cowgirl! where are your boots??”
“oh look! it’s the sunshine farms girl!”
“that’s a very 50s look”
“i think i had that skirt in the 70s!”
you have to understand that most of the people in my office stick with suits and pencil skirts. and usually, the colors are very basic…red, black, white, gray…with the occasional splash of green or blue.
so, maybe i’m the “daring” one in the office.
or maybe i’m just the freak show.
either way, i’m okay with it. i think if my coworkers stopped talking about me…i’d be kinda bummed. ;)
do you get shit from your coworkers about your wardrobe??
i’d love to hear some stories or great comments!
like this skirt?? it’s for sale in the shop. see more information and photos, here!
hope you’re having a fabulous thursday!
ps…not to brag, but today is my friday! woot woot. i’m headed to palm springs tomorrow for sunshine, relaxation with the man, yummy cocktails and good eats.
***update*** i forgot to mention that the shirt i’m wearing was purchased at the flea market for $2…$2!! the label is the old school gap label, but i think it was just a more recent throwback…i was gonna sell it, but i’m not 100% sure it’s really gap from 1969. it’s a men’s shirt though…that i know. and the skirt…well you know about it…it’s in the shop!! click on the link above if you’re interested.
