What I’m wearing: to work (2)

aug17

Yesterday I was in a dilemma. I lost all of my work clothes. I had to scrounge up clothing that I wasn’t used to wearing (ie: skirt) and put something presentableaug18 together for work. Thankfully, I had a work shirt already stored at the new place and I came up with this measily outfit.

Earrings: Forever21 (silver balls) $4.80 for a set of 3
Bracelet: Aerie
Shirt: $25~ ish at Ricki’s
Skirt: $25 at a random boutique by my place
Shoes: Ordered in 2007 online from Brown’s Store. Seychelle’s is the brand name.

Outfit #2 (on your right) was chosen after I had found all my summer work clothes and I remembered that I didn’t put together a “outfit of the day” to post here, in a while. So I decided to get a bit more decked out than I usually do and snap a photo. This my friends is what I’m wearing today. I think my outfit is a little too long looking. I have no idea what to wear this pink shirt with. It’s probably not work appropriate as it’s sort of a halter, but I slung on the cheapie white jacket and called it a day. I’d normally just wear this pink thing on it’s own with some short shorts. But we can’t do that for office attire, now can we?

On with the show people… on with the show, right?

Earrings: Forever21 (silver balls) $4.80 for a set of 3 same as yesterday
Necklace: Forever 21 ($6.80)
Shirt: Very expensive, full price at Guess in Toronto two summers ago
Jacket: Costa Blanca (2008)
Capri’s: Mexx
Shoes: Same as yesterday. Boring!

I didn’t want to wear any gladiators with this as I only have two pairs and didn’t want to be too matchy match with the pink gladiators and the other pair are teal…??!

Nautical Nancy

july31-09I felt all nautical at work yesterday at work with the outfit I was wearing. I wanted to wear my score of a deal at Mexx t-shirt yesterday, so I paired it with my white capri’s and haven’t worn my pink $5.99 sandals either. Voila Nautical Nancy. Fancy dandy. Not too many accessories but I wore my silver armadillo or ant eater necklace (I don’t know what it is?).

Necklace: A hand me down, that I received when I was like 14.
Purse: Nine West (bought at Labels for $34!)
Tee: Navy scoop tee from Mexx ($14.99 w/ 25% off!)
Capris: Mexx
Shoes: Aeropostale ($5.99)

I got up a little bit later than usual today for a weekend. 10:30. Especially since I went to bed somewhat early for a weekend (around midnight). So I immediately popped out of bed and headed straight to the mall because I was craving that kernals popcorn they have in the kiosks.

I stopped into Shoppers Drug Mart and noticed they had a clearance section on the go with basically everything and the kitchen sink. Chocolate bars on sale, a box of super fun colorful 200 straws for $0.34 (hey I love drinking my soda with a straw).

Winners has their summer clearance on the go right now. It’s overwhelming rummaging through the racks and trying to find a gem. So I went over to the sports section once again as the racks there aren’t as packed and crowded with clothes and people that don’t move when you say please — but also  perhaps not on clearance. I only pick out women’s clothes if it’s literally staring at my in front of my face. I rarely buy clothing at winners  (mainly sports wear, purses, sunglasses and maybe shoes) unless it’s popping out or in the front view on a rack. As I was flicking through the clothes I found an awesome nike sports bra that was sorta pricey for Winners at $24.99 but cheaper than what I would get it at The Bay or elsewhere. So I picked it up.

Nice color hey?

It’s finally warming up outside (we have been totally jipped this summer in regards to our warm weather). So I’m going to spend it outside!

Pants: GAP (a few weeks old)
Zebra Shoes: Joneve (from earlier this month: buy one get one 50% off)
Bracelet: Aerie (I really want a ‘real’ bracelet like this!)

Think I need a little sparkle to this dull outfit. Or even a punch of color with a belt or hot pink shoes. Oh yea.
