Last Week This Week is a look back on what I actually wore last Monday thru Friday as long as it was a workday. I’ve included a brief description of each outfit and if I wore it for a specific event other than a typical workday. Without a specified dress-code in my workplace, casual Friday isn’t really an official thing but I usually adhere to it nonetheless.
Let me clarify … unless you’ve declared yourself to be retired, anything you do during daylight hours (and sometimes nighttime ones as well) whether or not you get paid for it, I consider that to be your “work” and you should/can be dressed accordingly. And even if you are retired, in whatever manner you’ve enjoyed your day is good enough for me. I’m inspired by the creativity I see shared on so many blogs and Instagram accounts.
It was a full five-day workweek for me last week and like the week before, I’ve found myself following a theme with my choice of outfits. In fact, I’m kind of liking the idea of basing my weekly choices around a theme, however hairbrained it might be. Like the decision I made the weekend before last week that I would wear a skirt every day and hence the title enhancement for this post.
I tend to go with a more professional look on Mondays for no other reason than to set the tone for the week. This is not the first time you’ve seen this little black jacket and I can guarantee it won’t be the last. The skirt is a “new to me” thrifted find from two weeks ago and in my preferred skirt length which is knee to just below knee.
Here again is another thrifted skirt that I found about a year ago. I’ve paired up it with my daisy print cami and light-toned cardigan.
Starting with my skirt choice for the day, I thought that it might go well my leopardish print utility jacket (a find on Poshmark). The hard part was figuring out a top to tie the two pieces together. As I sorted through my options for white or beige tops, this pineapple one shimmered and sparkled at me so prettily that I couldn’t turn down the offer. Could it be the start of a new thing … on Wednesdays, we wear pineapples!?
Another “new to me” thrifted skirt bought at the same time as the red print one.
I waited all week to wear this outfit. You may recognize it as the one from my last post. I’d worn the outfit to a luncheon a week ago Sunday and it was later in the day that the photos for the crossbody purse post were taken. And again, the skirt is a “new to me” thrifted find bought a couple of weeks ago (I hit the motherlode that day).
The title was just a teaser, there is no issue that I’m skirting other than all five outfits were based on skirts. And the weather in SoCal is still warm enough that I still wear sandals and be bared legged without being out of place. Although I would much rather be wearing boots and tights. I often find myself amused at the catchphrases used in advertising or that some bloggers come up with for titles of their posts so I thought that I’d give it a try too.
And there you have it, a look back at what I wore to work last week. I expect that in future posts there will be repeat wearings of some of these outfits or a mix and match of the pieces. If you missed the post where I explain the reasons behind this new weekly feature (minus the link up), you can read about it here.
