I'm linking up again with the ladies at Fine Linen and Purple for their What I Wore Sunday series.
Old workwear. Ugh. We all have it, and I will readily admit that I have no idea how to wear it now that I'm no longer teaching.
Looking to the side to avoid the dreaded glasses glare.
Additionally, I have no idea how to wear black work trousers without looking like I'm going to work, which is why I left my shirt untucked (but now I see that it just looks sloppy). I have Googled "what to wear with black trousers" and the only decent post I found was this one from Ain't No Mom Jeans. I need more ideas, so leave me suggestions.
The shirt I'm wearing is pretty awesome though, and I'm sad it doesn't look awesome here. It's a light grey flannel shirt from J.Crew that I bought a few years ago. It's one of their "perfect shirts." I love, love, love this shirt. It looks great with yoga pants & ballet flats. It looks great with jeans. It's warm but thin, and it's perfect for layering. I usually pair it with a red scarf for a pop color, but I chose to wear my former workwear/bridesmaid pearls in lieu of the red scarf because I wore a red jacket instead.
Sadly, now that I see myself photographed in this red jacket, black trousers, and glasses, I'm positive that I look eerily similar to Sarah Palin.
So since my outfit was a fail, let's look at a better one. Here's what my daughter wore today.
sweater: GAP Kids (gift)
leggings: GAP Kids
sparkly shoes: Target
