Outfit Post: Office... Chic?


Okay, so I haven't been trying very hard on the outfit front lately.  I roll out of bed and look at my closet, and then I feel very tired and want to go back to bed.  This is compounded by the fact that, because my skin is on hallucinogenic drugs from approximately March until October of every year and is currently having a particularly adorable tantrum, I have to wear long sleeves.

Needless to say, I am greatly unamused by this.


Yesterday I felt like sort of trying, even with the "work-appropriate" and "long sleeves to contain troll elbow" stipulations, and ended up with this.  I adore this skirt, which is polyester (usually yuck; sometimes spectacular) but has the greatest 70s-tastic print ever.  Look at those neon tulips.  Who could not love, or at least be somewhat entertained by, neon tulips in autumnal colors?  Speaking of things being on hallucinogenic drugs: this fabric's designer was, probably.


Last but not least, a relatively recent addition to my Fluevog collection!  When a bunch of styles went on sale last month, my mom kindly offered to buy me a few pairs to supplement my work-appropriate shoe collection.  (Apparently combat boots are not work-appropriate.  Pooh, I say.)

Anyhow, about a month after receiving my Danielles and wearing them quite a bit, I'm insanely happy with them.  I love the coral color, which adds a little bit of interest to even the most boring of outfits, and they're comfy enough to walk the two miles from the bus stop to work and back in the morning.  I usually wear a 9.5 or 10 in Fluevogs, but I tried on a pair of these at the store a few months ago and knew to order way, way down.  I haven't been a size 9 since I was probably fourteen, but somehow these are.  I thought they might be a bit too tight when I first got them, but a few weeks of breaking them in has made them the perfect length and width.  Another great pair of 'Vogs.
