Days 10-13

Sometimes I play too hard during the weekend, and end up so tired on Monday afternoon that I need another weekend to recover.  Today is one of those Mondays.  We celebrated our friends wedding this weekend and maybe I channeled Ramona of Real Housewives of NYC and had one too many Pinot Grigios before awkwardly cutting a rug on the dance floor.  Anyway, I have survived Monday and almost two weeks of the 30x30 challenge.  Here's what I wore starting Friday:

Friday: Day 10, Shear Stupidity.  This shirt has quickly become a favorite of mine because of the embroidery and adorable buttons down the back.  Too bad I got dressed in the dark and forgot how shear this shirt was and wore it to work without a tank underneath.  Fortunately, no one works in my office on Fridays or it would have been quite a frightful sight.

Shirt - Marshall's, Skirt - Old Navy, Sandals - Nordstrom, Hat - Tyson's Corner, Watch Necklace - Gift
Holy sheerness Batman - let's just admire the detail, shall we?
Saturday: Day 11, The Mane Event.  Friday night we stayed at my in-laws beautiful farmhouse. Before the wedding we spent some time visiting the horses and eating the world's sketchiest breakfast in what appeared to be someone's garage complete with old furniture, Kinect toys, cobwebs and bad creamer.  At least I looked cute for what might have been my last meal.

Shirt - Anthropologie, Shorts - Macy's, Shoes - Nordstrom, Necklace - Key West, Bangle- St. Lucia

Sunday: Day 12, Brilliant Disguise.  In the wake of surfing the Pinot wave Saturday night, I pulled this together while searching for sunglasses, a hat and two Advil.  I thought I had brilliantly disguised my hangover until the cashier at Wawa had to swipe my ATM card for me while ringing up two barrels of Gatorade as I longingly stared at the donut case...mmm donut.

Shirt - Ann Taylor Loft, Shorts - XXI, Shoes - Nordstrom, Earrings - Laila Rowe

Monday: Day 13, Coral Cardi. Back to work, back to work-length shorts.  Thank goodness for casual summer attire!  Coral is very hot this summer which I love because it's one of the most flattering colors for picking up any semblance of a tan, not that I have one...yet.  Hooray for Hilton Head this coming weekend!
Cardigan - Christopher & Banks, Tank/Shorts - Old Navy, Shoes - Seychelles (Nordstrom),  Necklace - Handmade Gift, Purse - Permanently borrowed from Mom

One of these days I promise to take a picture before the gym aka before my hair looks like a dry mop.
I've got one more good work outfit up my sleeve and then the remixing begins!

Thank you Nakiya! Genevieve, thanks, I can't wait to wear it again, just appropriately this time. :)

Haha! That's funny! I would've been too embarrassed to work through the day if that happened to me. But you pulled it off well



Cara said...

Candy, I was embarassed! Once I realized it, I just tried not to leave my desk until the end of the day :)

Absolutely LOVE your Friday outfit, despite the sheer-ness! It's perfectly vintage while still looking modern and fresh!
