More fun with autumn colors! Today I wore a teal sweater with my orange and mustard tile pencil skirt (it's stretchy), and layered a maternity shirt with a faux white collar/sleeve/tails underneath. (You can see a hint of the fuschia color of the shirt in #3). I used mustard colored ribbed tights underneath for more coverage because the skirt looked a little short with bare legs, and brown ankle booties and leather satchel briefcase. Oh, and a peacock pendant (it kind of looks like a turkey, so I thought it was seasonally appropriate!). I thought it looked kind of preppy with the collared shirt and sweater and "schoolbag" satchel and cheery with the bright autumn colors. And I was happy to still be able to use my sweater and pencil skirt (I know they might stretch out, but I can't save everything "just in case" because then I'll never wear my clothes!)
But then at work I had some second thoughts...is this look too young (aka mutton dressed as lamb)? And I was going in to a patient's room and the family member of the other patient in the room said, "Wow, you're the sexiest doctor I've ever seen!" Um, OK...not the look I was shooting for, but thanks...The lady who said it looked like she was in her 70's so it was probably just an innocent compliment.
But what do you think? Work appropriate or not? Comments and critiques welcome--thanks!
