I worked at home today, but I did go out for lunch, so I had to get dressed, haha. I picked up this sweatshirt at Target a while ago. Not my usual style, but I liked the color and thought it was kind of unique. It is super soft and so warm! Even though it was a few degrees below freezing, I just wore a scarf and gloves out and was fine without a coat!

Today was my last day in the office until January, so I figured I could get away with wearing jeans. Most people had the same idea. These shoes are adorable, but I rarely have an opportunity to wear them, so I was happy to have a chance to show them off at work, too.

Who says there's no such thing as a free lunch? Today the cafeteria at work provided a free holiday meal to everyone. I forgot until I got to work, so I packed a lunch anyway, which I will just have to save for a couple days.

I love these earrings, they're just tiny silver circles, but they always make my ears itchy by the end of the day. Sigh.
OMG, Ready..Set..BAM gave me an award! Thank you!! Here are the rules, which I will not be following completely:
Thank the person who nominated me for this award.
Copy the award & place it on my blog.
Link to the person who nominated me for this award.
Tell us 7 interesting things about yourself.
Nominate 7 bloggers.
Post links to the 7 blogs I nominate.
This isn't my "real" blog so I don't write too much about myself here, but here's seven interesting things about me:
I can whistle really well.
I love cheese. Love it.
I love cats and currently have three (they occasionally appear in my photos here).
It's taken me a really long time to come up with these interesting facts.
I generally get one haircut a year and then let it grow out until the next year. (Last year I bucked the trend by getting a trim a few months after the big cut.)
I knit hats and sell them, but I do not wear hats myself.
I am really bad at writing about myself, especially when it has to be a certain number of facts.
Now for the part of the rules I won't be following - I won't be selecting seven other bloggers. Sorry, I'm a dead-end :o( But if you read this and feel inclined to share seven things about yourself, feel free!
Boring outfit to start a boring work week... Sigh.

The tank I'm wearing under my sweater I got last year from Target (along with a black one), and I've only worn it a couple times since then, but I think it might be the first Merona thing I'm really unhappy with. It's really long, which I don't mind because I like to tuck it into my pants when I wear it under something, but it's almost dress-length. And it's thick, so it's kind of bulky tucked in. And the neck's all stretched out somehow. Oh well, it's not like I don't have a wide variety of tanks and camisoles to choose from...

I painted my nails gold for this week!
Note to people coming here from the NY&Co Facebook page: Did they really have to choose this picture? I wear their pants literally every day, they couldn't have picked one where I look a little better?
I rarely wear this pink t-shirt because you can see through it a little bit. But I figured I could get away with it since it would be mostly covered by my sweater today. And that sweater is so warm (a good thing!) that you need to wear something light under it anyway.

Oh hey, yet another H&M sweater I hadn't cut the tags off yet. As you can no doubt tell, I love these v-neck sweaters. I got a bunch last year and then a bunch more this year. Yes, I am a "duplicate buyer."

Lots of brown... with a little bit of purple in the shoes! This is the first appearance of these brown corduroy pants, they're great, and it's nice to wear something a little different and casual to work.

I wasn't too festive for Halloween. In fact, I even forgot to wear my special Halloween pumpkin socks! We spent the morning at an outdoor event (with wind and misting rain), and then went to visit friends and watch movies late into the night. It wasn't terribly cold out, so I just wore my chunky sweater.

This also marks the debut of my corduroy pants. They're the same style as my favorite Old Navy jeans ("Sweetheart"), and they're so comfortable!
It must have been Pink Sweater Day at work today because there were about five of us on my floor that were wearing them. Funny how things like that always happen.

I realized as I walked into the office that I forgot to put on my watch this morning. Not that I ever look at it during the day, but of course since I didn't have it on, I kept trying to check the time.
I was very excited to wear my other new pair of shoes today! I thought they might be uncomfortable, but they're actually really comfy. I think because the opening is cut a little lower, they don't hit me right at the ball of my foot like a lot of shoes do. Oh, and I got compliments on them, too!

I just got this sweater yesterday (Bass is having a Buy 1, Get 2 Free sale!). It is so soft and snuggly and warm! My office has been freezing this fall, and I had to go to a big meeting in a room that was even colder, so it's a good thing I wore this!

Big things happening at work today, so I wanted to look professional. Somehow, professional = collared shirt to me...

Yes, that is another one of those sweaters with the collar and cuffs built-in. Luckily I looked semi-cute, because some co-workers and I had a little impromptu photoshoot around the office in the afternoon.
It was such a beautiful day today! I wore a jacket in the morning, but went out several times during the day and didn't need it.

I went to the mall tonight to look for some of the things Kimberly recommended for me. I actually liked a lot of the items she suggested, and there were some others I wasn't sure about but thought I would check in person. So here's how it turned out:
Forever 21: Kimberly recommended this 3/4 sleeve faux leather jacket, which I actually really liked in the photo. But in person, the leather was really crinkly looking, not smooth. Also, they only had smalls in the store. I would still get a 3/4 sleeve jacket. She also recommended a knit jacket that was sold out, but found a similar one. I'm not sure if I saw this exact one in the store, or another one (there were lots of similar belted knit jackets), but it seemed pretty bulky in person. I also found the braided pearl necklace, which was not bad, but significantly shorter than I like to wear my necklaces. My husband was also giving me a hard time about it. So I again passed.
Old Navy: I found the cowl neck sweater Kimberly suggested. I liked in the picture, but in person it is huge. I tried on a small, which was still enormous, and it just did not look good. I saw the patterned scarf, too - again, looked nice in the picture, but the quality just didn't seem good in person.
On my way out to do some errands. Unfortunately, some bizarre car trouble kept me from making all the stops I wanted - like going to the mall to pick up some of the things Kimberly recommended for me. Yes, my Fab Finds Under $50 Make the Most of Your Closet consultation was posted!

I was at a charity event for the day that involved walking around to different shops in a town and eating chocolate at every stop (nearly thirty!). We were walking, indoors, outdoors, in the wind, in the sun... so this sweater was the perfect thing to wear!
