I am a professional.

Today the big boss was in the office so I thought I should wear more of a "serious" work outfit. I saw a good amount of black and white on others too :) I've really tried to move away from black in order to challenge myself--it's a lot more difficult to mix and match when you eliminate black.

And of course the hair had to be in a bun.
Button-down shirt - Express, Black dress - BCBGMAXAZRIA via Ross, Belt - Express, Teal Watch - Michele Watches, Black patent leather shoes - BCBGirls
I do love this shirt because the colors are just fantastic. Unfortunately, Express used cheapy-looking buttons on it.
Buttons can make or break an outfit. A cheap shirt can look a lot more expensive with nice buttons, and an expensive shirt can look terribly cheap if the buttons are, and these buttons aren't stellar. I do like the shiny silver details on the sleeves of the shirt, though.
After a long day of work, I had to pop over to Forever Young Adult to see how we felt about the news that Lenny Kravitz has been cast as Cinna in The Hunger Games movie. Most of us range from confused to hell-to-the-no. Some of us have moved on to wondering what the heck they're going to do when it's time to cast Finnick. If you're not invested in the casting news coming out of this movie, then I am assuming you haven't read the books, to which I say, "Call in sick tomorrow and stay home to read these books." Yes, I am serious. Just look at my outfit.


  1. I like your professional look! I wish I could zoom the photo so that I can have a better look at it.

  2. Oh, professional clothes. Someday I will have to worry about them, but that day has not arrived yet. Looks like you managed to keep a little of your personal style in it, too, which is fun. (:

  3. Professional clothes can be a lot of fun. They make you feel fancy! But, yes, definitely never forget your own style.

  4. Hi, Divina Joy--I've considered having the pictures be bigger on here, but can't really decide. What do you think--definitely go bigger? You can always click on the photo and View, Zoom In until I make that change?

  5. I love the side shiny on the sleeves, yes I don't know why they cast who they cast for any of the parts of Hunger games. I really hope we won't be disappointed.
