I should have known that on the Friday before a holiday weekend, nobody would show up to attend any meetings in person.

I've only ever worn this top once before, when we went out to dinner with another couple last summer. It was so humid out, but we'd been looking forward to sitting on the restaurant's deck, so we sat outside. That ended up being probably the sweatiest meal I ever ate.
Today was another one of those "you stood in front of the closet for how long to come up with this?!" mornings. It's just that it was so hot and humid, but I didn't want to wear anything sleeveless in case I took off my sweater because I haven't shaved under my arms for a couple days... Ah, the trials of being a woman. It turned out to be a good choice because I actually wore the sweater for 0.0 minutes all day at work.

It was disgustingly humid today. Even my office felt gross. What you don't see here is that I ended up wearing my hair in a cute ponytail all day (low and to the side, so it fell forward over my shoulder).

Fridays are always quiet at work, except I have a standing meeting with an external vendor that actually takes place in person, so I do feel bad dressing too casually. I hadn't worn this shirt to work yet, but I think it worked for a semi-casual day.

I try to at least have an idea the night before or in the morning of what I want to wear for the day, so I'm not just standing in front of my closet. This morning all that came to mind was "pink and brown," and I didn't want to wear that pink and brown striped top. So I pulled out this sweater that I haven't worn in a while. I guess a lot of other people had the "pink" idea this morning, too - I think I counted five other women in my area at work who also had on pink tops!

It's gotten quite a bit chillier this week, so I thought I'd get one more use out of this long-sleeved sweater thing. It's very lightweight, but I did end up pushing the sleeves up by the end of the day.

Here's the second watch I got at New York & Company. It's just a plain, stretchy-band watch, but I really like it. (Even though I have tiny wrists, my current stretchy-band watch is so tight! And the metal makes my skin itch. This one doesn't!)
I was sick all last week and didn't really wear any makeup (both didn't feel like it and didn't want to contaminate it with my germs). Feeling better this week, though, and brightening up with some lipstick.

I may have mentioned that my little Xhileration watch from Target was breaking, and wasn't worth the cost of repairing? I've been looking for a replacement, and picked up this one at New York & Company on Friday - they were buy one, get one half off! Moments after taking this picture, I realized I hadn't yet removed the little tab for the battery or set the time.
I had to walk somewhere this afternoon with a couple coworkers and we realized we were all wearing gray pants and black sweaters. But they were also wearing black shirts, at least I jazzed it up with my blue top.
Nothing that I thought was going to happen at work today happened. But I did get to go to a picnic at work. And later I swapped my gray pants for jeans and went out to dinner with my husband.

Yes, this outfit is almost identical to yesterday's... I promise that upon closer inspection, the shirts are different styles, the pants are made of different material, and the shoes have different decorations. The sweaters are the same.
Oh look, I wore those new shoes again! I was planning to wear a necklace, but nothing was falling in the right place compared to the neckline of this shirt, so I ended up wearing earrings. I try to avoid wearing them when I know I'm going to be on the phone all day, but, oh well...

Don't mind that weird chunk of hair sticking out - this was still the best picture I got today.
Took a few tries to get a good picture this morning - I have a bad cold (didn't even go to the office yesterday) and in every shot I looked like I was about to die :o( (Good news: I'm feeling better already, I think I'll beat this thing!)

Even though I bought them last year, today was the debut of these shoes. I ordered these and a few other shoes from Payless, but it was a little too cold for cut-outs by the time I got them. I love them, though! Expect to see them lots this spring and summer!
I wear little stocking socks almost every day, but I skipped them today because 1) it was warm, and 2) these shoes have a spot that destroys stocking socks, and I just pulled out a new pair, so I didn't want to wreck them right away. What's the point of this story? My feet are very pale.

Should not have bothered curling my hair this morning - the humidity turned it into a huge puff by noon.
Please disregard the fact that I look somewhat insane in this picture. I was supposed to have a bunch of meetings today, but then they ended up getting canceled or the people I was meeting with just called, rather than meeting in person, so as usual I was hardly seen by anyone all day.
