I felt like this was a very Natalie-esque outfit today! I got this shirt a couple years ago and I think this is maybe the third time I've worn it. I really like it, it's just not that flattering on me - it turns sort of tent-like. Sigh.

I also rarely wear these sandals, because they're a little uncomfortable. I can't get rid of them, though. With turquoise and brown, they're so perfect!
I've come to realize that it's impossible to take a flattering picture of myself wearing this top. I don't know, maybe it fits weird? It just seems to make me look big and boxy, rather than conforming to my shape or whatever. Too bad, because I like it. I think it looks okay in person...

Remember how I mentioned that I hurt my foot somehow on Friday? I have a feeling that it might have been from wearing my new black sandals. I hope not, but that's the only thing that changed, foot-wise, leading up to this foot pain. So out of fear, I wore my super-comfy Clarks sandals today.

Last night on I mentioned that it would be nice to have a Closet Fairy who would just hand me an outfit in the morning so I wouldn't have to spend time picking out clothes. Unfortunately, she never turned up today. So this was the best I could do on my own.

Today we took a train into the city to go to a fun indoor/outdoor activity to celebrate my husband's birthday. I hurt my foot yesterday and we were doing a lot of walking today, so sneakers were a must. And the weather was cool enough to wear jeans, hooray!

I'd wanted this purse for a while, but my husband convinced me it was too big. However, when I saw a friend had it in green, and I couldn't find any other suitable platinum-colored purse I liked, I went back and got it. It's perfect, I love it!
Today was the last day of outfits that Natalie picked out for me. I was excited about this one! She said to match a cardigan to the blue stripe in this top, and I just happened to have one in the perfect color!
As for the skirt, I had been planning to wear a longer one, but it the long skirt plus this longer top just looked droopy on me. So I went with this shorter skirt, which I'd been unsure about because it's a fold top and I thought there would be too much fabric with that plus the tie at my waist. But it was actually fine.
Also, I finally found a replacement pair of strappy, low, black sandals! They just arrived yesterday. I ordered them from endless.com, and was very happy with both the price and shipping speed!

You know I usually crop my photos closer, but how could I edit out that cuteness happening next to me?!
Yet another outfit chosen by Natalie - though to be fair, I had been thinking about pairing this top with these pants since the success of my last pink and brown pairing. I don't usually wear white, though, so the cardigan was all her idea.

Another idea stolen from Natalie - she's asked how we organize jewelry. As you may have noticed, I don't really wear a ton of jewelry. Back in middle school when I got my ears pierced, I was totally into all sorts of funky earrings and big crazy necklaces. But now I just have a few small favorite pieces. My mother gave me this jewelry box, and it's perfect for my collection. (And I just reorganized it, luckily!) So I'm keeping easily tangled necklaces on the hooks inside the lid; watches, other necklaces, my one bracelet, and my two non-wedding rings on the upper trays; earrings in the small sections inside (here's a better shot of that); my flat watch and bulkier necklaces in the drawer underneath. The whole thing sits on top of my dresser.
Today's outfit was chosen by Natalie! She posted on Twitter last night that she'd already picked out her clothes for the week, so I asked her to do mine too - and she did! I have outfits lined up through Thursday.
This got us started thinking, it might be fun to do some sort of weekly blogger "dress each other" thing. Once a week, everyone would put their names in, get matched up with someone else, and choose one outfit for their partner, using what you've seen on their blog. I like the idea of someone putting together combinations I wouldn't have thought of. Who's in?! We could call it something like "Remix Mondays"...

I got this purple nail polish over the weekend. I was kind of unsure about the color and thought it might be too bold and crazy, but wanted to give it a try anyway. I love it! It's so rich and jewel-like - this photo doesn't do it justice.
* Nat, I know you said "aqua Merona shirt," but I wasn't sure what you meant - I assume you were referring to this one? If I was wrong, oh well, I already wore it :o)
I was excited because I'm taking off tomorrow, so today was my Friday. Also, I had my first staff meeting with my new group (even though it was just over the phone since we're in three different locations).

I really liked this outfit. I was going to wear a brown sweater, but I'm glad I decided to have a little more fun with it and go with the pink :o)
Remember a couple weeks ago when I wore this top in a different color? This time I made sure I got a side shot so you could see how it ties.
