My wardrobe, or lack there of...

medium button

Melanie over at Big Mama is having her first annual Fashion Fiesta!

If you've never been to her site you should check it out. On Friday's she offers sage advice on cute, trendy clothes and accessories. (I just wish you didn't have to be a size 2 to wear the clothes that woman finds!)

Any who...welcome to my virtual closet.

Monday through Friday I am an 8-5 girl. Granted, working for a state university at an "off campus" location has it benies. (Read: business casual, but IMHO it's more "as long as there aren't holes in it and you leave the Hooter's t-shirt at home" kind of atmosphere. Shhh, don't tell them I told you that.)

I used to wear skirts to show of my long, fairly shapely legs, but I think the last time I wore a skirt was the summer before I got married. Now my wardrobe consists of these pants, 3 pairs of black and one pair in charcoal gray. Or as my husband likes to call it "almost black":

And these pants(In an ultra daring shade of brown. *Gasp!*):

I have this shirt in red and black, then I have several similar 3/4 length sleeve V-necks (oh my!)in, you guessed it, black and red:

I have this shirt that I wear with my brown dress pants and the occasional pair of dark rinsed jeans:

In warmer weather I wear short sleeve version of the above cotton Ts and a pair of jersey knit capris.

I <3 shoes and accessories, but currently I only have 2 pairs of embellished flip flops in brown and pink and a pair or New Balance running shoes. (ha! that's a joke) I'm in desperate need of dress shoes and the only thing I can find that I like are these...and something tells me these won't work.

I'd have to break out of my comfort zone and buy a t-shirt in a color other than black or red.

Thanks for stopping by!

I love those sneakers. I am also a misplaced Yankee -- can't understand what they're saying half the time, but I am learning phrases like "yall" "all yall" and "a right lotta."

BTW, you are entirely too pretty to be happy.

For those of you who care, today I am wearing said red, scoop neck and black dress pants.

And yesterday, I found those cute sneakers in my size and purchased them.

My husband says they look like "little tykes" shoes. Yep, straight off the production line of Fisher Price. Thankyouohsoverymuch.

I think they're wicked CUTE.
