casual wednesday

(1) Note to all employers: Declaring the Day Before Thanksgiving "Casual Day" is not as awesome as declaring it "You Don't Have To Show Up Here Day."

(2) Note to self: Drinking 872 glasses of prosecco just because you're an adult and you can, doesn't necessarily mean you should.  We've been working on this lesson for a while now.  Maybe you should take notes.

(3) Note to the 7,001 people in line at Einsteins this morning: WHAT ARE YOU ALL DOING HERE?  You are all responsible for dashing my dreams of an Everything Bagel with Veggie Cream Cheese.  Curses on you and your employers who heeded my advice in (1).

(4) Additional note to self: Shut the hell up and show them your sweater with the fun buttons.

Green Sailor Sweater - Banana Republic
Trouser Jeans - Joe's via Anthropologie
Brown Boots - Banana Republic
Gold Flower Earrings - J.Crew
Gold Medallion Necklace - wedding present

(5) Notes to lovely readers who asked me questions recently:

Do I own pants?
  • Yeah, I don't really "do" pants other than jeans and cords.  I think I have four pairs of suit pants, but they usually don't see the light of day unless (a) the high for the day is 40 degrees or lower, or (b) we have an emergency dry-cleaning situation on our hands.   Reason being that I just don't find them as comfy or as fun as my skirts.  Working with mostly men, its nice to feel feminine.  Can you do that in pants?  Obviously.  But then its harder to see my pretty shoes!

  • Proof that pants do exist in my universe (and that law school kids know how to take one helluva photo): 

Does Evs think my little fashion experiment is ridiculous?
  • Probably.  But I think his dislike of pizza is ridiculous.  We're even. 


  1. i love you & ridiculousness. i'm ridiculous too. it's the only way to be, in my book!

  2. Mmmmm Einsteins... have you tried the pumpkin schmear? delicious!

    Oh- and i adore the color of that sweater :)

  3. I agree staying home would be much more fun than casual day, but your outfit is super cute. :-)
    Dislike of pizza?!? That is crazy talk!

  4. Your outfit is cute for casual day! I am the opposite...I can't get myself to wear too many dresses at work. I think I need to revamp my work wear.

  5. I'm still trying to learn the "just because you are an adult doesn't mean you have to drink your weight in alcohol." But prosecco is happiness in a class so I'll keep drinking.

  6. that pants photo is the besties. Love it. Let's see the thanksgiving outfit. ps anyone who hates pizza is an asshole. fact.

  7. you make me actually "laugh out loud"...and my coworker thinks i'm crazy for it. so be it. :)


stall scribbles appreciated!
