I have an online class this semester (yes, I hate them, but it was only offered online) and the way those work at my school is that once a semester everyone meets in person for class. Of course this in person session was scheduled right in the middle of one of my normal workdays. I decided to off-set the annoyance of this hectic day by wearing a fun outfit. I generally don't wear this skirt to work as the lace tails tend to get tangled in the wheels of my office chairs.
The short sleeves at this time of year are courtesy of my work building's ridiculous over heating. I hate over heating so, so much. I think it is totally reasonable to expect to wear a sweater or other warmer clothing indoors during winter and do not know why so many places heat their building to 70+ degrees. I personally keep my apartment below 60, and it's fine. I have sweaters! I understand public buildings need to accommodate people of varying heat tolerances, but wouldn't 65 be totally reasonable? Not only does it waste so much energy but it makes getting dressed really annoying. I can't wear sweaters or long underwear and such because I will be too hot inside, but that means being too cold outside. It's ridiculous and a major pet peeve of mine. I do, however, love this shirt and it is in constant rotation in my wardrobe. I am kind of astounded it hasn't shown up here yet.
It perfectly matches my plum and black striped socks which are great and I love the stripey socks peeking out of the lace handkerchief hem. They do, however, require sock glue to stay on, but that's not a huge burden. I am also wearing my new purple lipstick, from Sephora #RA24 Bewitch Me, which may be my holy grail dark purple lipstick.
