Outfit Post: Heidi Goes to Work


So, since I last wrote, I started my new job as a yarn store clerk.  It's been really fun, and a fun challenge for making outfits!  There's a mild dress code - no jeans, no open-toed shoes - and I spend 6-8 hours on my feet at a time, so comfy clothes and shoes are a must.  I've started wearing skirts pretty much every day, but luckily the dress code doesn't exclude my weird style.


This morning I decided to go for Heidi braids, this awesome mustard yellow industrial-chic German pullover I got from Etsy seller pinguim, who has provided some of my favorite pieces in my closet.  I love how badass this shirt makes me feel.


The shoes are a recent purchase - new Fluevogs!  When I started work, all of my clothes were packed away in a storage unit, so I had to scramble to get something appropriate to wear on my feet.  Lumberjack and I took the bus to Seattle and went to the Fluevog store, where I tried on a gratuitous amount of shoes and finally decided on these relatively simple black Mary Janes.  Excuse the scuffing - I've been wearing them constantly!  They're insanely comfortable and great for showcasing hand-knit socks, which is one of my favorite things.

Hope you've all been well!
