My Hair Flower Totally Matches My Backdrop

Yes, I am wearing a light gray hair flower. Yes, I am posing in front of a light gray backdrop. As a graphic designer, I should have known better. But I don’t always have time to change out the backdrop before taking photos, and when I do it kicks up a lot of cat hairs that stick in my lip gloss. So yeah, sometimes we simply don’t touch the backdrop. 🙂

This simple gray skirt came from Target many years ago. It’s pretty versatile, due to its simplicity, but I neglect it because I’ve had it so long it doesn’t excite me hanging there nestled amongst my sleek pencil skirts and ruffled girly skirts. But I really like it when I do wear it. I have an identical black one, also.

Today was the perfect temperature for a cap-sleeve sweater. This one came from some random strip-mall clothing store. The necklace and bracelet are New York & Co. They dress up a rather plain sweater, and match the skirt. Awesome!

  1. Yup, this is one of my favorite outfits, hands down! I LOVE that sweater and necklace. LOVE. Everything about this screams: SASSY.

    It’s so nice to see you back and blogging again. It’s been too quiet around here without you. I’m really looking forward to our mutual blog themes and challenges. Sending you many hugs from NYC.

  2. I need a sweater top like that! Love the look 🙂

  3. What a great combination! I really love how the flower in your hair doesn’t just match the background, but also the necklace and the skirt! Even if the skirt is rather basic, you should show it some love: I think it would look great with lace tights or an oppulent top!

  4. What a great outfit! I have some execs coming to my office next week, you insipired me for an outfit! Thank you!

  5. Sometimes, the simplest outfits make the most impact. And grey, always a good look 🙂

  6. Given the choice between a slight design faux pas and cat hairs in your lip gloss, I think you made the right call. 😉 I love the necklace and bracelet!

  7. You look fantastic!
