Unfortunately, my little stop meant everything in my day was delayed and I stayed up way too late and had to get up for work the next day and by that time my occasional cough had amped into full gear. I was (am) officially under the weather but needed to be at work, so I took as much medicine as I could, got my cough drops and found an outfit as close to pajamas as I could justify for work:
Okay okay, I *also* confess I couldn't wait to wear something from Hope Missions!
Zebra print sheer top $2 Hope Missions Bargain Shoppe
Gray cardi $6, leggings $6 from VV Boutique
Multi-strand necklace $4 VV Boutique
Oxmo tank and Miz Mooz boots from my closet
I love this top! Love the animal print, love the gray colour, love the fit - so comfy yet so forgiving!
This ensemble was just what I needed to sit on stairs and small chairs all day.
I am very lucky. My work environment is quite casual and I can pretty much wear what I want (within reason). I don't know why, but to me, leggings dressed up are work appropriate but I would never wear yoga style pants to work. If you disagree with me, email email@example.com.

Even though I wore pajamas to work, that is no excuse to be sloppy or unpolished! I still fulfilled the rule of 3 and finished off my ensemble with my usual accessory trifecta and make-up to
hide the fact that I coughed all night long brighten my face.
It worked! I was comfortable, I bragged to anyone who would listen about my $2 top and tried unsuccessfully to arrange an early education field trip. What? We could work so much learning into a trip to Hope Missions Bargain Shoppe! I jest but for everyone else out there, you really should take a little field trip! I bet you think $16 at an outlet store is a good deal for an item of clothing - try getting 8 for that price!! There, now you know what to do with your Saturday! (hours are from 10:30 - 6:30 BTW)
One last confession: I have registered VV Boutique Style for the Made In Blog awards - you can see the info at the top right of this page! There are so many great blogs in Canada - I am just happy to be in good company but if you like what you read, click on the "vote +1" box to put your one vote per category for VV Boutique Style! Now, time for a decent bedtime. Good night!
Haha! Although I do love my yoga pants - and probably could wear them every day if I was forced to! :) - I must confess that I pretty much save them for lazy days/evenings at home and quick trips to Wal-Mart. You are absolutely right! I feel just as comfy when I wear leggings, a long comfy top, and a bit jewelry, and I feel so much more confident, put together, pretty, and better about myself! :)ReplyDelete
Also, I hear ya with that cough! Mine just won't go away, and I pretty much haven't worn anything but leggings for the last 2 weeks! :)
