A Touch of Whimsy

Daily Outfit, 1/25/11

The Breakdown:
  • Lace applique blouse - Nine West - Macy's
  • Three-quarter sleeve cardigan - Gap
  • Fine wale corduroy pants - Banana Republic
  • Peep toe pumps - Aerosoles - Piperlime
  • Vintage bug pin - Lil' Gypsy
I need to apologize for these pictures.  I know mine are always sort of haphazard at best, but today they seem even worse that usual.  We presented to the Feds for five hours today.  Five straight hours, no breaks.  It was exhausting.  All together, we were at work for just shy of 12 hours.  Again, exhausting.  So, I apologize for the lint on my pants in the close-up of the pin.  I'm too tired to use a lint roller and re-shoot.  Ater my week of professionalism is over, the shots will hopefully get better.

This was day 2 of my "professional" work week.  I tried to keep it professional, but instead found it boring, so I spiced the look up with fishnet trousers socks (you can't see them, but I know they are there).  And I added a touch of whimsy.  The pin is very small and unobtrusive, but it still makes me happy and is representative of me.  And you can't see this in the picture, but the wings are actually on little springs, so they move - I love that.

When you guys have to dress more professionally, do you include touches of whimsy or sex appeal for yourself?
