Making It Work



Fedora: Walmart, last summer similar, similar / Necklace: old similar, similar / Blouse: Goody’s, last fall / Cardigan (similar) and Shorts: Old Navy, this spring / Wristlet: Maurices, this spring / Wedges: Delia’s, 3 years ago

This is what I wore home from Jamaica.  It’s a bit dressier than my departure outfit here, but these shoes were taking up the most room in my suitcase, and something had to give.  Why does it always seem harder to fit it all in on the the way there than on the way home?



Anyway, I loved the way this blouse looked with my shorts (with little pink anchors…obsession) and knew I wanted to try a similar combination for work when I got home.


Necklace: Rue 21, this spring similar / Blouse: Goody’s / Cardigan (similar): Old Navy, this spring / Bracelets: Rue 21, last winter / Skirt: JCPenney, this spring / Peep-toe Wedges: K-Mart, last year

I definitely like the first outfit the best because I love the multi-colored beads and the wedges that give it a bit of a tropical vibe.  Unfortunately, that just didn’t come through in my work version.  The wedges looked a little awkward with my pencil skirt, so I compromised with the nude peep-toes.  And without the wedge sandals, the beaded necklace just didn’t feel quite right, so I replaced it with the statement necklace.

In the end, I guess it worked, but I will definitely be making another attempt.  Do you like either of these looks?  If so, which one do you like best?
