Gray Halogen blazer - Nordstrom Rack; Feather blouse - H&M; Pink lace skirt - Target; Purple tights - HUE via Nordstrom Rack; Black Etienne Aigner boots - Marshalls
As far as outfits go, maybe not the most adventurous. I was also low on clean clothes and dug the feather blouse out of the Discard Pile because I had nothing else to wear. After I washed it, it went right back into the pile. It's just too big and unflattering.
The boots are new! They are technically for work, but I like them so much I couldn't resist taking them on a trip to Target. I found them on a layover in DC a few weeks ago and I've worn them to work twice (including the 6-day trip!) and found them to be quite comfortable, considering I only wear them during boarding & deplaning and whilst walking through the airport. I slip into flats for the service.
And there are more new things!
Purple tweedy blazer & faux-leather leggings - Gap; Tshirt- Jimi Hendrix Experiences; Black pointy-toed flats - Nine West
Oh yes. I'm wearing faux-leather leggings. I tried them on as a lark when I was shopping with my mom & sister. And then I left them behind. And totally regretted it. After they left, my sister texted me and told me to go back and get them. I had to return something for my mom anyway and the cash back from that was pretty much equal to the cost of the leggings ($17! On Sale!) so I took the plunge. And I am SO pleased with this purchase.
They do nothing for my hiney, but I think we've established that there is really no help to be had for that. The blazer is also new, and was also $17! I do love a good sale. It fulfills my want of tweed and it is a different cut than my other two blazers. Plus, I've decided that purple is a neutral. Think about it. You can wear purple with black, brown, blue, red, pink, ALL the colors! And in my book, that makes it a neutral.
This last photo is just to brag about being spoiled. The Boyfriend had that gorgeous bouquet sent on Saturday to congratulate me on my race and to wish me a happy early birthday. Every day is bringing the end of this deployment closer and I couldn't be happier about that. I'm ready to have my mister back!
