Currently have 0% post title inspiration, but I wanted to post anyhow, so here’s one of my outfits from last week.  This is pretty typical work fair for me: dress slacks, Dansko Sally’s, nice top, nice cardigan.  I think it’s the details and the colors that make this outfit special.  Turquoise is definitely one of my favorite colors.

Outfits like this are so comfortable to me.  I feel very “me” with the vibrant colors, the slacks mean that I’m not self-conscious if I have to bend down or stand on a stool, and it’s all still very professional.  I definitely don’t feel that work clothes have to be boring, but I’m also a very practical person.

I wear this watch a ton, but I’ve never featured it on the blog before.  When J. Crew first started carrying Timex watches, I  loved them.  However, their insane price tags kept me away.  Meanwhile, my boyfriend acquired several regular (re: not insanely expensive) Timex watches.  J. Crew’s beautiful watch bands went on sale, and now we both have gorgeous watches at a fraction of the cost.  I decided to go for fun rather than practicality and got the orange band.
