I had a late start this Friday so I didn't have my usual luxury of mulling over my daily outfit this morning. I was actually planning on just putting on the most basic white t-shirt and jeans outfit until I saw my new Urban Outfitters blazer that I had recently hauled hanging by the door. Thank goodness it was there to remind me creating an outfit that looks put together really doesn't need much work. I threw that on and found a nice big necklace to put on over the white t-shirt and was out the door. Looking at my outfit later that day, I actually didn't think it was too bad. Outfit add-ons like blazers and necklaces really do make a huge difference!
Now normally I can wear whatever I want to work and nobody on my team ever says anything (I'm the only girl in a small technology team of eight and I think the married guys don't want me to take it the wrong way). Although this would drive some girls crazy -- looking all cute and nobody noticing -- I actually don't mind at all as I really just enjoy getting dressed up for myself. However, today was different. My boss actually mentioned to me that "you look straight out of J. Crew". I found this super surprising as I really don't consider him the fashion forward type. Regardless of the actual validity of his comment, I realized that he had actually noticed what I was wearing and this was his version of a compliment! For a person who doesn't really go fishing for attention, attention when you least expect it is a definite bonus. Thank you blazers for instantly amping up the chic factor of my look today!
Now one last pic for shameless cam-whoring purposes. ^_^
Thanks for reading!
