Outfits of the Week: May 1 - 5

Happy Cinco de Mayo!  This week at work was so tiring and it's not even over yet for me.  I have to work tomorrow too.  Boo!  I'm so tired.  I just want to sleep.  Let's get on with the roundup of this week's work outfits so I can get to bed.

This outfit was perfect in the massive temperature fluctuations I experienced while wearing it.  It was a super hot day so while I was outside, I took the cardigan off and had a nice breezy top and in the frigid air conditioning, the cardigan kept me warm.  This is an outfit where very classic and basic pieces just came together to make something I really enjoyed both in form and function.

black captoe pointed toe flats - Payless

I love this blazer but I just didn't love this outfit.  I just don't really love the blouse.  The fit is great but I just think I really care for the pattern.  I think I prefer small, delicate prints like this fox blouse.  This print is large and loud.  I may start to look for something in a similar color to replace it that I like more.

I had a really important work meeting this day and I wanted to look my most professional so I went with a blazer (so many blazers lately, I love it!) and my pointed toe loafers.  I felt confident with my clothes and the meeting went great!  Double win.

white striped cuff blazer - Papaya
wine belt - Cato
moss essential chinos - Amazon
taupe pointed toe flats - Payless

This blouse is the same style as the one I wore on Tuesday and I feel pretty similarly about it.  I like the fit and shape but I just don't care at all for this large print.  I'll probably stop by Papaya soon and see if I can find a replacement for this too.  I find black and white tops to be really versatile but I always find myself steering away from this particular one because I feel like the print is too big for my small frame.  Live and learn, right?

These shoes are so cute!  But they are also so uncomfortable!  They aren't wide width so they rub against the tops of my feet and they also have a small hidden wedge that makes my feet lean forward into the rubbing section worse.  We walked to lunch today and even though it wasn't far, I had to change into little boat shoes because there was no way I was walking even the little ways there in these shoes.  I guess it's time to start the hunt for a replacement.
