Because black

Monday

Monday: Rosen top, YY skirt/pants, Eileen Fisher slides.

The AC crapped out on the hottest day of the week. Luckily, I was still comfortable in my flowy linen top and skirt pants. It was very odd how the AC only stopped in some areas and I found out we have a lot of AC units. The front offices were hot, the post production area was frigid, the larger shop area was hot, but the smaller milling area was cold.

I also heard overheard this:

Coworker:  “I see everyone got the black memo today since we are all wearing it. I’m wearing black, and so are X, Y, and Z [coworkers]. Then there’s Jen, but she always wears black….”

I laughed a little at that and it made me all the more aware how comfortable I am wearing black in general. I seem to be accumulating more black items at an alarming rate as well.

tuesday

Banana Republic top, Pas de Calais pants, Frye shoes.

I wore a sleeveless top, thinking the AC might not be fixed, but it was, so I was frigid for the first half of the day. By late afternoon the AC was having trouble keeping up with the super humid weather outside and the temp started to creep up in the office.

I am still on the hunt for oxfords/brogues. Any recs? I still have the two I showed before on my list, but the Frye ones aren’t budget-friendly at the moment. I have check TRR and Poshmark, but not been impressed with the selection.

  1. The Rosen top is just so cool! I may have commented on it already last time you posted. (And the skirt is beautiful too, with the velvet-looking texture.)

    1. Thanks. I am really glad I got it. I’ll most likely be wearing it again this week because I need something light for covering my burned shoulders. The skirt is mostly velvet with some cotton parts.

  2. The flowy outfit with the skirt/pants! I’d love to wear that! Our styles are different but they do intersect in some ways. That skirt/pant is a beautiful thing. Is it velvet?

    1. Yes it is mostly velvet. There are a couple of cotton parts on it (bottom of one leg/back flap thingie, rectangle are near the zipper up top)
