Blame It on the Rain

I'm gonna take a cue from Milli Vanilli here...all this rain is killing me! I know April showers bring May flowers, but it's so hard to dress around rain when it's warm outside. Boots get all sticky and sandals get flooded...maybe I should get some jellies like I had when I was 6. I'll stop talking about the weather now though, because I get quite my fill of that at work...you'd think we were all working outside in the elements, not inside, with no windows, chained to a desk for 8 hours. I have never before been around adults who lose their fucking shit when it storms, or practically start crying when there's a 30% chance of rain. I think I've added people who freak out about the weather to my top 5 pet peeves, right on up there with obese people and/or smokers who give me long lectures about the dangers my vegetarianism poses to my health(it's been 9 YEARS...I've got it under control, people).
Anyway...this outfit is my stab at "work-appropriate". I've been in this office job for a year and 2 months now, but I still can't get the hang of conservative dressing. I suppose it doesn't help that polka dot rompers and leopard-print hot pants send me into transports of delight, while black slacks and blazers(THE HORROR) leave me cold. Just another sign that I was not meant for the corporate world...


  1. hehe i totally get the annoying weather freak out thing. my neighbor had to sleep on my couch wednesday night cause she was freaking out so bad. i just threw her a pillow and was like i'm gonna sleep through all this..

    A+++ on the professional. i forget dressing nicely is sometimes not the same as dressing professionally, but i like this :)

  2. i'm digging the black pencil skirt/ankle boot look! you rock it quite nicely.
