What I Wore: Monday, October 15, 2012

Posted on

We had one last interview at work today, so I tried to continue the habit of dressing a little nicer than usual to convey the idea that I’m kind of put together and reasonably professional. Ha. Fooled him…



    What I liked:
    •  I didn’t love the outfit while I was wearing it, but the pictures show that it’s a little better than I thought
    • The dress has pockets!

    What I didn’t like:
    • The weird white tie on the dress. It’s not quite long enough to make a nice bow in the back, and it’s too short to look right in the front.
    Dress- via my grandmother, cardigan- via Mom’s closet, tights- Burke’s Outlet, booties- gift from my future mother-in-law

    I was alone in the library after closing time, so I decided to try a different location. I like mixing it up a little. Ha. 

    What I liked:
    •  I felt comfortable and stylish

    What I didn’t like:
    • The boots kept falling down all day…a little too slouchy’
    • My hair looked awful. I wear a lot of ponytails, but this one was particularly bad…

    Shirt- Burke’s Outlet, pants- Old Navy, boots- Academy Sports

    I had to teach a class today, but it turns out that the professor had different expectations than what she had communicated to me. Argh. At least I looked decent…


    What I liked:
    •  I felt comfortable and put together in this outfit

    What I didn’t like:
    • Nothing really!

    Sweater- Walmart via yard sale, pants- Goodwill (don’t remember brand), shoes- Academy Sports

    Another day, another round of bedroom shots. Meh.

    What I liked:
    •  No ironing required!
    • This shirt is so easy. I should wear it more often.

    What I didn’t like:
    • The blue stripes on the pants weren’t defined enough for them to tie the shirt to the outfit
    Shirt- Goodwill, pants- Old Navy via Goodwill, shoes- Academy Sports

    Nothing much to say about this one today. My pictures are in a different order than usual, but I’m leaving them. I’m rebellious like that sometimes…

    What I liked:
    • The shape of the outfit
    • The pop of color from the tank top underneath, when it decided to show

    What I didn’t like:
    • Nothing that I can think of!

    Shirt- Burke’s Outlet, via Mom’s closet, tank top- Old Navy, pants- Burke’s Outlet, boots- Christmas gift from grandma

    Mirror pictures drive me crazy because you can’t see the outfit details as much as in my office. Grrr. This dress has now been downgraded to tunic status because it’s waaaaay too short to be worn with tights. That’s not a bad thing, but it is tough to discover that roughly 20 minutes before you need to leave for work…


    What I liked:

    •  The green and brown (hard to see in these pictures) felt really “fall-ish”

    What I didn’t like:
    • I felt like Peter Pan or Robin Hood. Ha.

    Dress- Ross, leggings- Old Navy, boots- via a yard sale

    Tomorrow is the Homecoming game at the university I work at. I’m not going, but I thought I would at least dress up and try to look spirited…or something like that. Also, these jeans have not fit before today. Yay!

    What I liked:
    • Casual…

    What I didn’t like:
    • I’m neutral on this one. There’s only so much you can do when trying to be spirited…

    Shirt- from my employer, jeans- Walmart, shoes- Old Navy
