    Dapper! I love the jacket, classic without being dull.

    Another day, another opportunity to wear fabulous clothes. The shirt is another thrift store find, god I love Value Village. It's one of my favorites, very 80s with great detailing. It's hard to tell, but the collar is navy. On the back it also has great detailing: a diagonal navy dart from the hem to the shoulder. loose-fitting black trousers, the no-nonsense platforms from yesterday, a grey and black striped bow, and fab sunglasses. A sapphire ring to match the navy in the shirt, along with the pearl and pink crystal rings I usually wear:

    Closer detail on the shirt...too bad it's blurry, it was almost a decent selfie!

    ^Then they should know that I'm way too argumentative and high maintenance to fit the Manic Pixie Dream Girl stereotype.

    Since I'm not feeling well today I never made it out of my pajamas.

    Today's version of my uniform: jeans, black elliptical tee, black bag. This time with black MBT sandals and leopard print socks, simple silver/pearl earrings, and a beaded necklace (shades of purple and white) made by a Hopi artist. What a fashion magazine would call a statement necklace, for sure.

    Just for the record, no, I do not normally wear socks with sandals. Only when I feel like showing off a really cool pair of socks.

    I'm lounging around after work, so I'm wearing a baggy old longline sweater and grey leggings. I never wear leggings outside the house unless the top I'm wearing is pretty much dress-length, otherwise I bear a striking resemblance to Jabba the Hutt.

    I have to wear black or grey trousers/skirts/dresses at work, and the tops have to be black, white, cream or very pale blue, pink or peach. I wish I could add more colour to my work clothes, but at least we don't have uniforms.

    ^I don't know if I could survive such a restrictive dress code!
    I love you so much for wearing sandals with leopard print socks.

    I'm sorry, was that supposed to deter us? 'Cause that's not really the effect...

    Black socks and dark boxers. They go together, at least

    Today I'm wearing a variation of my "uniform" for days that I go to Planet Fitness: this shirred-back tunic in solid black over polkadot leggings (black dots on gray). Black and lime green athletic shoes at the gym; black MBT sandals the rest of the day. Silver earrings. The usual black bag. Black/gray/purple PF backpack.

    I love the tunic. Am thinking of buying the striped version in either charcoal or blue.

    I most definitively don't. More like Captain Bertorelli. :lol:

    Thanks! It was love at first sight: I needed a light-coloured jacked in my wardrobe, and it definitively hit the spot. And to tell you a horrible secret about that jacket... I had my sleeves rolled back under it. :eek: Not something I should do, but this September is has been hotter than August, so I allowed myself a bit of leeway.

    Love the collar. Just the right amount of asymmetrical, but no more.



    Yesterday I had another shindig to attend, so it was the beige jacket again, off-white trousers, white-and-brown bi-colour shoes, burgundy shirt, no tie. (I'm totally a maverick! ...or not. :rofl:)

    Today I had just an informal seminar (and it was hot as hell), so it was yellow RL polo shirt, stonewashed blue jeans, and blue sneaker.
