2nd Week of Work Outfits

Week 2 of filling in for our church secretary went pretty well, although I still didn't quite get the bulletin printed totally correctly. When Alice returned home from her vacation refreshed and happy, however, it made me glad to give her a much needed break. She asked if I'd be willing to fill in for her again sometime, and I agreed, mainly because I would really like to get that bulletin done right for once!

Once again, I took Monday off to get my own work done at home.

Tuesday:
I'm not a fan of wearing shorts. They don't do my chunky legs any favors. Capri pants are OK, but still feel too hot to me. I did like this all-neutrals outfit, however, while I was working at church in the air conditioning. As soon as I got home, I switched to a skirt.

pants ~ JC Penney's; Vionic sandals ~ zulily.com;
necklace ~ JCP (I think?)

Wednesday:
Please forgive the wet hair. In the middle of watering the garden, before getting dressed for work, it began to rain. It was just a few drops at first, and since it seemed unlikely we'd actually get enough rain to justify not finishing the watering...I finished watering. And it poured on me until I was winding up the garden hose.
Wearing a maxi skirt that day wasn't one of my better ideas. I don't understand women who say they are cool wearing a maxi skirt. Once again, it was tolerable in the AC, but I hiked up the skirt to my knees driving home, and practically stripped as soon as I got home! Maxi skirts are better suited to fall and winter for me, I think.

Outfit details:  t-shirt ~ Thrivent;
LuLaRoe maxi skirt ~ Facebook group;
BOC sandals ~ Vanderbilt's;
bracelet ~ yard sale

Thursday:
Print the bulletins day! A twirly skirt and tshirt is my ideal summertime outfit, so that's what I wore for a day of darting around the office. And it was fine for getting stuff done at home, too! I didn't think to get a close-up picture of the vintage fishy pin...but my explanation for why it goes with this outfit is that God created birds and fish on the same day, so a fish pin goes perfectly with a bird skirt.

LuLaRoe Azure skirt ~ FB group;  sneaks ~ JCP;
vintage fish pin ~ MIL

Friday:
There wasn't much left to do in the office, so I went home after about an hour. If it hadn't been so stinkin' hot that day, I might have worn this outfit around the house, too, but even being indoors, wearing black on a hot day isn't cool. I got a great deal on this skirt on eBay. The person selling it must have found it second-hand and didn't know anything about LuLaRoe. I'm surprised I found it! Glad I did, tho - not only does the Madison skirt have pockets, but this one is a BIRD print!
