Day Three: Casual Taupe and Navy

May 11, 2011

Today is a casual day; we are off to see a new CFS doctor so I’ve got the day off.

Here’s today’s outfit. Let’s see:

Navy scoop-neck T from the Gap

weekend jeans

taupe/fawn cotton cardigan from H&M

favorite thrifted scarf

Dr. Scholl’s wedge sandals (I love these!)

Do you like my runway pose? God, I’m a dork.

Below is a close-up of the scarf, which is not entirely successful because I couldn’t get it to focus – the light was too low or something, argh.

Anyway, it has just about every color in my wardrobe except for green, and seems to go with just about everything. I wear this all the time when I need a little warmth or a little oomph. I’m a big fan of scarves. My office is always FREEZING and I always underestimate this.
The scarf really helps.

The Dr. Scholl’s are super comfy. They have a nice wooden wedge and are high enough to go with these slightly longer jeans, but are still totally walkable. I recommend them.

The t-shirt, scarf, and sweater are also work-appropriate (yay for fairly casual offices) and the whole outfit is something I might wear on a casual Friday, as well. I always feel like these jeans are a little on the iffy side even for casual Friday, but I wear them anyway.

Comfy for a day off, but still presentable for meeting a new doctor.

      I have seen it on a few people, which is funny b/c I got it at a thrift store! It’s a great scarf.

    i love this outfit and i LOVE the scarf. i have a similar one that i bought from a fellow at the portland saturday market for $6. i never used to wear scarves until moving to oregon but i can almost get away with it year round here. good thing i have an inexpensive scarf hook up. 🙂

      Scarves are a MUST in Oregon. And yeah, except for the warmish two months in July and August, you can wear them year round! Cheap scarves are the best.

    Scarves are a lifesaver! I have too many of them, actually, but they’re great for adding a little something *and* getting to be a little warmer too. I’d also always wondered about those Dr Scholls sandals (though I am an avid fan of his gel soles and suchlike.) Playing along, I never left the house today between a nasty headache and a deadline, and am comfy in black leggings, a thin chambray shirt dress, and a brown wrap cardigan over. This I would call nothing interesting.

      I have, arguably, too many of them too (two tie-racks full!) but I only wear 3-4 on a regular basis. I love them. And, I am a big fan of the non-wooden sole Dr. Scholl’s. These have a nice squishy footbed. I have a pair of flats from them that I wear all the time, too. So comfy and actually cute as well.

      Your outfit sounds like what I *wish* I were wearing.

        Totally understand the scarf over-purchasing. I always think I should get rid of a few and then remember that I wear them all – if not now, someday. The one I had when we were stuck in Athens was a total wardrobe lifesaver, but I’d never worn it before nor have I since! That’s a shame.

        Will look into the Dr Scholls…

    I wish I had the flair to wear a scarf well. I feel like I’m getting fashion lessons here!

      Anyone can wear one. Goes with just a tshirt and jeans, as easily as anything else. Try it!

    Love the scarf!

    I live in jeans. Live in them.

    We just found out that next year we will no longer be allowed to wear jeans to work. A part of my soul died.

    I’m thinking I’ll be rocking the Dickies with Vans look. Skatepunk kindergarten.

      That is so sad. I try to sneak in jeans at least two days a week. I would like to wear jeans pretty much every day, actually.
