Mr. Picks Mondays: Blue Under Gray

When you wear a dress, tights and a blazer, what do you add so that you don't appear TOO dressed up for your pretty casual office?

A big chunky scarf that serves two purposes: 
1) to keep you warm; and 
2) dress down your tights, dress, and blazer combination.

Oh, and to pair with the cute outfit your husband picked out :)

dress & belt: Target sort of similar below
blazer: Aéropostale sort of similar below
boots: Rack Room Shoes sort of similar below

Housewife in Purple

these are the shoes I wore for our wedding, with a shiny 2012 penny glued to the bottom

I found this dress at a thrift store and it reminded me of something an old-fashioned housewife might wear. So, I brought it home and then cut several inches off the bottom to bring it into this century. I added a bright belt and punchy shoes to finish the transition into this decade. What do you think? The top is a bit boxy, but I think it helps to balance out the short & flowy skirt.

On another note, ya know how sometimes the days just get away from you and you can't seem to catch up all week? And then the weekend seems like the perfect time to recharge, but all of a sudden your weekend is filled up? And the next one, too, and the one after that? Yeah? That's me lately. Color me exhausted! But in a good way - lots of time spent with friends & family and big changes at work for my Mr. & I.

I'm so looking forward to putting my feet up this evening and doing nothing. Some people go out every Friday night and are amped up for the weekend. I'm the opposite - there's nothing I look forward to more on a Friday evening than laying low and having a movie night with the Mr. and the pups. Am I the only 20-something who feels that way? Weekends are the perfect time for me to regroup and get myself mentally, emotionally & physically ready to tackle the week ahead.

On that note, have a great weekend! I've got some blogging catching up to do, sooooo, yeah ;)
