weekend --> work wear!


My Monday Fashion Plan of Attack was to transform my new dress from Cocktail to Coffee Break... initially I was contemplating lots of Accessory Experimentation... and then HORROR OF TEXAS HORRORS our A/C went out. 

Luckily, our detached guest room has a window unit so our little family didn't die of heat exhaustion in our sleep... but come morning time, 87 degrees did not a pleasant dressing room atmosphere make.  

Thus... HERITAGE CARDIGAN.  

THAT'S IT!  ALL WE GET FOR TODAY!  

No fun belts.  No Extreme Layering.  No perky hair. 

JUST THAT DAMN CARDIGAN.**

**PS: My colleagues have officially noticed The Cardigan Obsession.  2 weeks ago, someone proposed the creation of a spreadsheet to keep track of which color I wear on what day.  Awesome.  I am officially Crazy Cardigan Lady.  Perhaps I should look into purchasing 27 cats with whom to loll around in order to really round out the cliche imagery.  

I'll try harder next time. 
Pinkie swear.

  4. I lived a summer in DC with no AC... it's not Texas, but it sure wasn't pleasant! Especially b/c my fridge was broken for almost a month. Needless to say, I did not renew my lease there.

    I am also a crazy cardigan lady. I wear one pretty much every day... it's the only thing I've found that works for walking to work in 90 degree heat, but then having to brave icy air conditioning during the day. :-)

  6. Well- we can be crazy cardigan ladies together. I am 22, and I wear cardigans ALL THE TIME. Sometimes I even wear 2 when it's cold.

    I LOVE that dress!

  7. Your colleagues need to meet our dear friend jmo. Girl has 34 cardigans, I believe. Well, that was a few months ago, so let's round up and assume she has 40 by now.

    See you Saturday !!!??!?!! I hope!

  10. actually, i have a question about the heritage cardigan...do you find that it stretches out alot? in other words can you get more than one wear in before washing/dry cleaning? i too am a crazy cardigan lady, but hate when you can't wear one multiple times before cleaning!

  11. So pretty! I love those colors together. As an intern in the event planning industry wondering what clothes to wear to work, I can always look to you for excellent professional (and after-hours!) taste.
