Spring pencil skirt office outfit and Five for Friday

I love wearing skirts in the spring. When the temps rise, it's time to bare legs. Pencil skirts are perfect for the office. Pops of blue make this the perfect spring office outfit.

Another day of the layered hair cut.... I thought I was getting the hang of styling it, but it looked pretty pathetic by the end of the day. On the next washing after this, I could do nothing with it. I just couldn't wear it straight and I really don't have time for curling daily. Anyway, I'm sure you are tired of hearing me complain by now. Some of you left some nice comments on yesterdays post. Thanks. That was the day after the cut when I still had some of the salon styling going on. Once I washed it myself, it was all over.
At least I can always find happy shoes in my closet. I don't wear these much (last seen HERE and HERE, but pulled them out for an Instagram challenge on print mixing. I have to be careful about print mixing in a conservative office, but mine is relaxed enough to get away with some subtle mixing  once in a while. I doubt I'd wear this outfit to court, but I'd definitely wear the shoes to court with a solid outfit.

I wore this outfit to work the Monday after Halloween. I guess I subconsciously still had Halloween on my brain. I didn't even give the spooky holiday any thought when I went through my pinterest boards the night before and put this together. When I was completely dressed and about to walk out the door, it hit me that I should have worn this the week before because it looked like a Halloween outfit. What can I say? I'm known to be late. Halloween aside, the thought process that went into this was "rust orange top + black pants + beige blazer+ cap toe shoes + long gold necklace." You could create this look with any bright colored top, as seen here with red.

A beige blazer makes a good wardrobe workhorse. Check out my post Beige blazer- 4 ways for more ideas. I could probably do another "ways to wear it" post with different looks I've created since then.

I forgot my shoes

Blazer- Sears
tank- Cato
pants- JCPenney
shoes- Payless
necklace- gift
Worn June 4, 2015
I wore some cute Mary Jane pumps with this outfit but also took these flats because I was concerned about the pumps being comfortable. They are one of the pairs that was given to me by my coworker and they were a little tight. I ended up wearing these flats at the end of the day for errands and forgot to bring the pumps home. So... you get the flats version. And you may see me in flats more and more because I have been struggling with some tendonitis in my left foot and knee pain in the right knee. I thought it was from running or exercise but I've begun to notice that even when I lay off the exercise, the foot pain flares up. Based on some research and self diagnosis, it's the constant wearing of high heels that may be causing this. So.... ice, ibuprofen and flats. Poo! I'm otherwise comfortable in heels and think they look so much better with dress clothes.

Ann Taylor Inspired

tote- Payless Shoes  option  option
worn March 19, 2015
The Inspiration:
When I saw this ad from Ann Taylor, I was reminded of this top I thrifted and still needed to wear, so this outfit was inspired. As much as I love color, I love the clean blending of beige and black. Something about this is perfect for a conservative work environment, yet still polished and not boring.
You have probably noticed I don't add my purses or bags much. I tend to carry the same one over and over. I had to add this one in the pics because it goes so well with the outfit. And for a cheap, or inexpensive bag, it looks pretty good. The key is minimal hardware. Cheap bags with lots of shiny cheap metal look, well, cheap.
I think these shoes add a little more here too than plain black shoes. I've actually gotten more wear out of these than I thought I would, even though at 4 inch heels they are certainly not daily go tos.
Here's a look back at a few outfits with the shoes:

A flats day

Blazer- Sears option option
blouse- JCPenney option option
pants- JCPenney option
necklace- gift option
shoes- Ross option option
Worn June 4, 2014
I was inspired by Danielle of Goodwillista to put these pieces together. I think the shoes tie it all together. Even though I don't have cap toe pumps, I have flats, and sometimes, it's just a flat shoes kind of day. This is the same beige blazer in my beige blazer- 4 ways post. It's a such a versatile piece.

Worn March 7, 2014
I rarely ever wear this sweater anymore, but I love it's soft color so I decide to give it another wear. It's made to look like two pieces but it's only one. My "clutch" had straps when I purchased it at the thrift store, but I cut those off, making it into a clutch.
