First - to anyone who stumbled here through Mr. Linky - WELCOME! Grab a plate of binary nachos and a drink and check out my closet! I'll admit right now that I'm not into all the latest fashions, but I one of the awesome perks of my job is that I get to dress up for black-tie functions at least twice a year. That's when I get fancy, what you're going to see today is what I wear the other 363 days...
The first question asked of all Spring Fashion Fiesta was what do I wear on a daily basis - I'm going to begin with a photo of my closet. It's not huge, but suits my needs.
Now - imagine I have a pair of black pants (preferably from Banana Republic). If you're feeling daring - imagine grey pants. Or (gasp) a black skirt. There's the bottom half of my wardrobe. My favorite top is this lovely burnt orange piece from Target. (I love Target!) The sleeves are just a tad tight, but I can wear a nice shell from New York and Company underneath (in black, of course).
Next - I always carry a lunchbag to work, it was a gift from my sister, BooSheep on my 30th birthday. It's black and white (to match pretty much everything I wear) with my initials in hot pink. It's from Thirty-One, a Christian based company. It's insulated on the inside - without a doubt one of the best and most useful presents I've ever received.
Finally - the other perk of my job - occasionally there is really cool jewelry to purchase. Employees are always allowed to borrow jewelry to wear on our "black-tie" nights, but it's an exciting time when I can actually take a piece home with me. I have a pair of earrings that matches this necklace and makes me smile.
Please ignore the cat hair in the picture - scratch that - imagine the cat hair all over my black pants. And there you have it: Lone Butterfly's Daily Uniform!
BigMama's second question was what would we LIKE to have in our closet. I'm boring. I would prefer more black slacks (and skirts) from Banana Republic. Like these Martin Fit ones. Or for a bit of variety - this skirt has the word floral in the title. I'm also really loving this (in black).
