For the next three days, two of my staff are out of the office. While we have systems in place to keep things running smoothly, it was a bit daunting this morning thinking about the rest of the week. I feel that clothing can be a suit of armor, and I decided to dress pretty professionally to steel myself against the craziness I may be dealing with. So far, so good, great other folks on the team who are helping to keep everything going great!
I have been wanting a peplum top, but each one I have tried makes me look like Judy Jetson's aunt. I was happy to find this softer peplum at Ann Taylor, and that it also is made of Ponte knit. It's a good match to other ponte pieces in my wardrobe (like this skirt I've owned for a while), and I like it with pants as well as skirts.
