I ask you to please forgive the quality of these pictures. It was an early day at work so no full-body shot by the hubby, and I swear each time I went into the office bathroom there were people in there. Very few coworkers know I have a blog (I don't hide it, I just don't advertise it) so I didn't want them to catch me shooting a self portrait. The headshot was taken as another woman was flushing (maybe she wouldn't hear the camera), the leg shot was taken in the office hallway. Oh so glam and polished!
Taupe chunky cardigan – Ann Taylor (last year)
Gray pima scoop tee – Banana Republic (also last year)
Denim pencil skirt – Ann Taylor (this fall, and too large. Will be going on eBay come 2011)
Gray tights – Spanx
Cashmere knee socks – Gift from my fabulous sister
Tan Boots – DUO Boots “Bern”
See? Craptastic pics. And it's unfortunate because I am actually having a decent hair day, and my outfit is actually kinda cute in a bundled-up Casual Friday sort of look. This morning on Twitter I said it was, “Cozy Casual Friday for a Snowy City.” Yep, that sums it up. It snowed yesterday. Nothing compared to other parts of the country (folks did you see this lighthouse in Ohio? OMG! And FYI link goes to a video) but DC folks freak with one snowflake. Today is sunny but cold, and I wanted to take advantage of it being Friday and wear a more casual look.
So what are your weekend plans? Top of my list? A CHRISTMAS TREE! Yeppers, we have YET to get on the ball and get our tree. Tomorrow after my husband finishes teaching, if Emerson is still awake we're going to go get one. Tomorrow evening my friend A is having her annual Christmakwanzaayulenukkah party. Christma-wha? From her invite:
Christ-ma-kwan-zaa-yule-nuk-kah (unpronouncable) n. festival combining a variety of winter holidays having to do with lights, turning points & new beginnings and learning about & celebrating their similarities and differences; great excuse to avoid other gatherings; reason to get drunk and party with friends
Sounds pretty fabu, eh? Well it is! Still not sure what I will wear, will see how the mood strikes me that day. I'll be sure to take pictures, and pictures far better than the ones from today!
Hope you have a fantastic weekend!
Thanks everyone! And thanks about the freckles, I have always loved them, even when I can remember other friends hating them. 🙂
I didn’t realize my husband has a shoot today… hopefully we get the tree tomorrow. Goodness, I have NEVER put up a tree this late ever! I am usually a Thanksgiving weekend sort of gal!

Another fantastic look! The cardigan looks so cozy, perfect for a snowy winter day. Your accessories really pull it all together and take it up a notch though!
I wasn’t paying attention to the weather, it snowed all day yesterday and my shoes were not snow-friendly at all. I need some cute flat boots like that.
Have fun decorating your tree!

That bangle is stunning! I love how sleek and substantial looking it is. And Callandra’s totally right about the freckles – I’m jealous.
Your best accessory has to be those adorable freckles!! 😉
What a lovely and cozy look! I really like your necklace. I’m thinking of picking up some Spanx tights, I’ve heard good things.
Aw thanks mamacita! Not too shabby for 5 hours of sleep and a 4:30 wake up time! 🙂

Full shot or not your face GLOWS and your hair looks marvelous!
Hi Chris, thanks for coming by & subscribing!
These boots, I LOVE LOVE LOVE. Got over three years ago and best money ever spent. I wear them constantly, they are uber comfortable, leather high quality, etc.
However I haven’t had luck with DUO ever since. Ordered 3 different pairs, none of them fit right. Shipping back is insane and only a week to get them back to them.
However I have to say their customer service is outstanding. Email them with measurements of all parts of your legs, what you’re looking for, etc. and they will do their best to find a pair that will work for you.
I am toying w/ ordering another pair, have to measure my lower calf & send it to them so they can inform me if this boot will fit.
Let me know if you try them!
Discovered your blog and now you’re on my RSS list! I noticed you were wearing Duo Boots – how do you like them? I’m in CA and I’m a little wary of ordering “custom” UK boots without trying them on. Are they comfy? I’m really interested in the black croc flat boots they have but again, I’m nervous to order them and not fit right…
