I got this cardigan at a little boutique type shop when my husband and I went on a little day-trip last week. I love the color! And of course black + gray + turquoise is always a winning combination for me.

I'm on a business trip this week, so surprise, you get a hotel room shot! This was my only day of having to go to work while I'm here, but it was a long day that included all-day meetings, a confusing hike around the largest office campus I have ever seen, and a team dinner that went late into the evening. But the day was fun and productive!

A somewhat casual Thursday at work. It was my second and final day in the office this week. Also, I wanted to wear the other scarf I had gotten at Kohl's last week.

It does not come across in these pictures at all, but I got comments on how cute my hair was all day. Next time I'll have to get a picture from behind, it's really curly and bouncy when I do it this way.
This photo may not count... I was going out for lunch and manicures with a friend, but at the last minute I changed into a scarf and sweater similar to what I wore on Friday. It was just too cold!

Later, my husband took me out for Valentine's dinner. I switched to the dark jeans I wore on Friday, but with boots that have a heel, which unfortunately I did not get a picture of. Let me just say, those boots are not made for walking.
I love this outfit. We decided after our two long weeks that we were going to skip lunch, then knock off work early to go out for a late lunch before heading home (where we did promptly get back online and continue working... ugh).

I just got this scarf when I was out shopping with my co-worker last night. We went to Kohl's so she could take advantage of no sales tax on clothes in PA, before she traveled back home!
I don't know what's up with the hair lump on the side of my head. Hopefully that went down over the course of the day...
Last day of our on-site activities! That means I get to retire my jacket for a while! But for most of today, it was back to the flyaway cardigan. And actually, this afternoon, I was just in short sleeves for a while. This top has fun, kind of fluttery sleeves.

Day two of our event and things are still going well! My outfit plans fell through this morning, so I ended up wearing this cowl neck top, and guess what: it looked not horrible under a jacket! But, like yesterday, I spent most of the day in a sweater.

I tried curling my hair a little at the ends, which I did over the weekend and it looked super cute. I don't know what I did differently this morning, but it was just not happening, so then I had to waste more time getting it all straight again. And it was never really right for the rest of the day.
Today was the first day that we hosted an on-site event at work. We had some additional coworkers in from out of town. We were told to wear suits, so I broke out the jacket just for the event in the afternoon - the rest of the day, and to dinner afterward, I wore this cardigan.

My coworkers and I decided to wear jeans to work today. Nobody is in the office on Fridays to see us anyway, plus we were all just locked inside a room all day working.

Going to work in jeans made things easy when I got home - I just dropped my work bag and my husband and I left for dinner.
In other news, eShakti came through the second time around and provided an item for me to review, which I got tonight. I chose the Embroidered Illusion top because it looked like something Carrie Brownstein wore in an episode of "Portalandia" (of course I cannot find a screenshot of her wearing it). Disappointment #1: the top part isn't lace or even really embroidered, it's like a zig-zag machine stitch. Disappointment #2: the top part is really stiff. Disappointment #3: It had this tie thing on the front with four very long strands that I assume you were supposed to tie into a bow, except they were connected on one side, so maybe not? Either way, it looked bad, so I just used my seam ripper to take the whole tie thing off.
Anyway, I selected the custom sizing option, but I guess because of the fit of it, it's kind of big and bloopy anyway. I'd been hoping to be able to wear it under a jacket maybe, and I'm not sure how I feel about that, what do you think?

I got this scarf over the weekend. I really want to wear scarves more. This was actually in Old Navy's new spring line, it comes in a lot of different colors, but of course I went with black and gray :o) It's actually a nice light jersey, I am a fan.

Had a weird wardrobe issue this morning because the tank I was planning to wear under this sweater left too much chest exposed, and the scarf looked strange on top of it. Finally, Modbe's modesty is good for something!
I just got this shirt this weekend. I am obsessed with gray clothes. Not heathered gray, just a solid gray. And these shirts are my current favorite, so any time I see a color I like in my size, I find I need to snatch it up.

Today was the first day of our intense preparation for a big event at work. We have a coworker in from out of town to work with us. Super busy starting... Now!
