The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
First, via th’ Twitter, this is how my day started out:
Then it mostly rained, and was dark, and then rained some more, which is a killer for both outdoor and indoor pics.
Before I started reading style bloggers, and then expanding my budget career dressing posts from just sharing good deals to putting my wardrobe where my mouth is, most of my outfits were gray or black, and all the colors in between gray and black.
Inspired by Sal at Already Pretty’s recent post, “Dressed For: Monochrome Experimentation,” I decided my former gray ways could work, with a better mix of monochromatic textures. (In my prior career style life, my typical post would have been titled “Dressed For: Job at a Funeral Home.”)
Plus, I already owned all the gray stuff, except the xhileration top I thrifted for a few bucks this weekend. Normally, I don’t jump up and down about thrifting Target brands, especially for juniors, but this top is really well tailored and interesting.
|All gray looks good in black and white 🙂|
|Obligatory blooper pic of me falling off table. Thanks for the idea, Lisa!|
|I wish this was the firm nap couch. Don’t think I haven’t lobbied for it 😛|
|Sans sweater. I’m kinda self-conscious about taking pics of my butt, but this blouse has a cool drop in the back.|
|Multiple watches worn together inspired by style bloggers way cooler than me.|
|I’ve got to get my grandmother’s ring resized. I wear it stacked with other rings so it won’t fall off.|
So, are you living a monochrome career wardrobe, or do you experiment with the whole color wheel?
