Birds at Work

Okay my haircut may be a bit too "edgy" for the level of twee in this sweater... 

sweater-Le Tote, shirt-Style Mint*, trousers-Banana Republic(very similar here), loafers-G.H. Bass, ring-French Connection(similar here)

So... I'm not in love with this outfit... Why, you may ask? Well, I feel like this sweater and shirt pairing would have been better served by a more dynamic bottom, say a leather legging, or even a bright cropped trouser. And why didn't I go with either of those options for this look? Because a leather legging wouldn't fly at work, and it was way too cold yesterday morning for a cropped anything. I needed a full-length wool situation, and while normally I probably would have opted for a heeled boot, slip-on loafers are becoming my de facto shoe because of day care's "no shoes in classroom" policy.  Basically, this outfit is a combination of functional compromises made due to the fact that I live in the real world and not (unfortunately) in a fashion fantasy land where things like office dress codes, weather, and babies don't exist.  

*Apparently Style Mint, Shoe Mint, & Jewel Mint are out of business... So, yeah that kind of sucks... :(
