These past few weeks, we couldn’t have asked for better weather! For the most part, it’s been sunny, breezy and cool: perfect conditions for dressing. When the temperature doesn’t matter in the decision-making process of putting together an outfit, there are no limits on what articles to choose from. This particular look is so comfortable, I started calling the combination my “daytime pajamas.” 😉 The blouse is loose but still flattering, the cardigan keeps me warm and the pants fit like they were made for my body. Funny thing is, I didn’t have to get them tailored at all, not even a hem! The brand is an obscure one – Stoosh – and I’ve had a hard time finding any other work-appropriate pants by them. It always tends to happen that way, doesn’t it?
The sweater chain is what really makes this outfit Cubicle Chic. It’s quite different from any adornments I’ve ever worn to the office, and it reminds me of an updated-but-still-vintagey Mad Men or Emma Pillsbury sweater chain. What I love is its versatility: I was dreaming up different possibilities for it outside of the office during our shoot. I think it would be the perfect feminine touch on a cropped leather biker jacket, with one pin on each shoulder blade and the chains draped in between. If only I had the perfect leather jacket to pair it with! I still haven’t found one; the search continues…
