What I Wore to Work Today: September 18, 2013
Some pieces in my wardrobe are like old soldiers, just fading away. I’ve thought about taking in this skirt to make it straight instead of A-line, I haven’t gotten around to it yet. I’m not sure the shoes are even in my possession anymore. I used to wear brown a lot more than I do now, I guess, they were in regular rotation several years ago. Whoa. Like 6+ years ago? Which was 5+ years in the picture’s past. Maybe one day I’ll get caught up. In the meantime, let’s keep seeing what I wore in 2013.
I had a pair of red pants from Old Navy that I loved from, oh, 2004-2008. Eventually I let them go because they had faded. Also, they weren’t really the right size anymore when I slimmed down by about 10 pounds, which is enough to make a difference on my 5’2″ frame. I’ve been chasing after those red pants ever since. These are more fuchsia than red, from Target clearance a few years ago. Next up: fancier professional crisp red pants that are a different material than fading cotton chinos. Big dreams.

Jacket: Goodwill, probably $1 Thursday
Skirt: Goodwill, $1 Thursday
Oh my gosh keeping a blog is hard work. I used to do it more regularly. I guess I’m just old now. I’m 33. But only 31 in this picture! The glow of youth.
I didn’t realize this jacket had a peplum when I first saw it on the rack. I decided to buy it anyway. This was at the tail end of when peplums showed up on clothing for a bit there. I don’t have the jacket anymore, it was too tight around the ribcage and added to that early pregnancy look I sport all the time despite being, you know, not pregnant.
