Three work outfits which prominently feature blue for a short break in between fall storms. First two weren't intentionally both blue; today I figured I'd finish the theme before switching to more hectically bright/colorful/patterned outfits for the upcoming rain. In the meantime, quite happy with these three, very different, outfits!

#2 11.09 - Monday was extra crisp and dry so I figured suede boots were in order. Love how cognac looks with light blue, going with cognac mid-calf boots and a column of light blue (periwinkle, aqua) fully tucked for a crisper feel, plus a vintage cognac belt; after mostly low contrast belting the last couple years this was a nice change. Finished with red droplet earrings and cherry lip gloss for a little extra color depth, then orangey outdoor accessories to play with, but not match, the cognac boots in the peachy sunnies and tan/neon orange clutch. I am lukewarm on how the coat looks here but currently lack something more suitable for brown footwear in an outfit that doesn't feature black.

#3 11.10 - Yesterday I wanted to wear this ink fringed sweater again so I could snap some outdoor photos with it while it's dry Originally tried the sweater with my olive joggers but wasn't feeling it so swapped in tuxedo stripe knit pants (i.e. fancy sweats) for a cozier overall feel. Paired with black patent pumps for a little more "luxe", and cherry gloss + cream/black striped hoops to add a little brightness for my face. No blush here AND you can't see the ink with it, but still inspired by Angie's ensemble to wear my burgundy coat with this. Also popped this outfit back on, subbing in black patent loafers and my nighttime high bun, at 4:30am to drive my sis to the airport. No photos of that but it was extra cozy for three hours in the car!

#4 11.11 - Today (after the loooong car ride followed by a nice warm shower) I wanted to try the denim shorts+tights thing, which I haven't worn in a few years. Fully opaque black tights felt too heavy so I opted instead for a semi-sheer black pair instead. Paired with a cobalt tunic sweater because, blue, and then little boho touches (boots, earrings, peachy nude lip gloss) to soften the look. For outerwear chose predominantly black with lots of patterns (plaid coat, taupe bird print scarf, creamy leo clutch). Also enjoyed the vaguely mod vibe with the legs ^^ Bonus: my husband actually liked this so I'll be wearing again this weekend for a short anniversary trip.
