I didn't realize this until just now but I wore orange dresses two days in a row!
Yesterday I wore a J Crew origami sheath dress, with turquoise bracelet, shoes and purse. Got lots of compliments on the coral/turquoise color pairing. Today I wore my B44 orange stripe dress and gold OTBT booties to do an Una copycat. Funny anecdote...I came home and kicked off my booties and was playing with DS2. I kept giving him his toys to play with, but instead he kept crawling over to my gold booties to try to grab them. What can I say, he has good taste!
Another funny anecdote...we hired a new female doc recently. She's really nice and it's great to not be the only woman doc in our group anymore. At first I was curious to see how she would dress and wondered if we would get compared a lot (I kind of have a reputation amongst the nurses/staff of being a fashionista...they are always commenting on my clothes). But then she always tends to dress in very simple monochromatic outfits like a grey sheath dress, or a white button down shirt layered under a black sheath dress, so I haven't really been paying too much attention to her outfits. Plus I've been super busy these last few weeks. But yesterday she was wearing a grey sheath dress and she had left her grey suede heels at the computer workstation (she wore clogs into the procedure room) and I happened to take a peek to see what brand the shoes were...Christian Louboutin! Well well well! She's a stealth fashionista! And today she was wearing some turquoise peep toe wedge shooties. Hmm, now it's going to be a lot more fun around here--we can talk shoes in addition to talking shop! Her style kind of reminds me of IK if she were to work in a business office setting...clean lines, minimalist, monochromatic, not something that calls attention to yourself but high quality if you know what you're looking at. Whereas my style seems to be more loud and bright and matchy matchy and statementy and attention getting (although that's not reflective of my personality...I'm fairly introverted!). Hopefully I won't feel too cheap and gimmicky in comparison, LOL!
Good news...today I just ordered a pair of shoes online and a purse from eBay that I'm really excited about! Can't wait to get them and wear them with one of my favorite dresses...they will be the perfect match! Hoping to replace a pair of shoes and purse that aren't as comfortable or functional. I really want to post pics, but I don't want to spoil the surprise before my K/R. Though I'm sure you can probably guess what I bought! Bad news is I'm going to have to be on SYC...who knows how long...mabe I can aim to go for a month? SYC always makes me want to shop more, so instead of declaring an official SYC I'll just leave it as I will try not to shop for a while!
Thanks for looking and commenting!
