February 28, 2011-March 4, 2011: A Week In Retrospect

I did not completely drop of the earth last week, just the blogosphere. The "catching up as quickly as I can" thing got sidetracked by life but, I promise you I did wear clothes last week and thankfully someone (aka BF) was there with a camera to snap some shots. This week I am going to try something a little different, we'll see how it goes...

Monday was just like any other Monday, getting back to work. I mean who is excited about Monday? You would be absolutely wrong if you guessed me...
  • Top: black faux wrap shirt, New York & Company (same shirt different color here) with a tank top underneath for the modesty; gray wool blazer, Isaac Mizrahi for Target
  • Bottombrown and red pinstripe pants, New York & Company (these are one of the pairs of pants that I needed to lengthen and let the cuffs down, how do you think they came out?) 
  • Shoes & Accessories: silver hardware embellished flats, Preview via Nordstrom Rack; silver bead earrings, Tiffany & Spy Bag, Fendi (not pictured)

Tuesday was bingo night and this August I will be turning 88... just kidding! There is a bar downtown that does bingo on Monday and Tuesday nights so a bunch of friends decided to go and check it out. Since I knew I was going out after work I wanted to be comfortable, although for a night out I probably could have stepped up the glam factor a little bit. I wasn't a big winner but, it was a good time.
  • Top: red long sleeved shirt, Van Heusen; brown houndstooth jacket, LOFT
  • Bottom: gray pants, New York & Company
  • Shoes & Accessoriesbrown/black snake embossed ballet flats, Xhiliration for Target; rainbow beaded earrings, Moxie Bee; Rainbow beaded necklace, Moxie Bee (not pictured); black Spy Bag, Fendi (not pictured)

Wednesday was a sad day. I got an email from my high school alumni office stating that a classmate's mother had passed away. Since the graduating class my year was only about 48 people this was definitely someone I knew so I decided to pay my respects at the wake after work. Thankfully I didn't have to go alone, one of my other classmates and close friends came with. It was a very surreal experience and really makes you grateful for the things that you have.
  • Top: gray and black dress, Pretty Girl; black blazer, Ann Taylor via Melissa
  • Shoes & Accessories: black vintage patent leather pumps, Evan Picone via Unique Thrift Store; purple tights, Kushyfoot via Duane Reade; black patent leather belt, Apt. 9 via Mom/Kohl's (came with this top); silver bead earrings, Tiffany & Co.; black Spy Bag, Fendi (not pictured)

On Thursday I wanted to brighten up my mood so I pulled out this brand new sweater that my Mom got me. It was one of the first things I saw when we walked into New York & Company and I fell instantly in love. Do you know what I'm talking about? That feeling like, I cannot leave this store without at least trying this shirt, skirt, whatever on! This is why I try to avoid the mall like the plague, it helps me stick with the whole no purchases thing. Unfortunately there are still a few things I would like to add to my new work wardrobe so, I'll have to suffer through...
  • Top: orange ballet neck chiffon flower top, New York & Company
  • Bottom: beige pinstripe pencil skirt, New York & Company
  • Shoes & Accessories: black pumps, Nine West; blue goldstone earrings, mall kiosk in California; beige pantyhose, No Nonsense via Stop and Shop; purple tote bag, Coach (not pictured)

Friday I was just happy for the weekend! This would have been a great time to wear jeans and get into the spirit of the weekend but, charity day isn't until later this month... I settled for skinny pants, it was ok!
  • Topyellow ruffle collar shirt, LOFT; gray flyaway cardigan, New York & Company
  • Bottom: black really skinny pants, GAP 
  • Shoes & Accessories: leopard print flats, New York & Company; silver bead earrings, Tiffany & Co.; purple tote bag, Coach (not pictured)
