Workday Outfit: Just Go With It...

 Well, I started out planning on wearing just a white t-shirt with these white jeans and scarf.  Then I thought about how cool our office might be and decided to add another layer.  I was originally going to wear it unbutton, but it looked neater buttoned.  Didn't realize you could see the t-shirt sleeves through the button down until photos were taken and I was needing to head out the door.  Too late to change into a more appropriate tank top so I just had to go with the men's undershirt look. :)
I also realize now, after the fact, that I could have rolled the sleeves up one more time and that might have helped hide the line of the t-shirt sleeve.  I don't believe that anyone I encountered today could have cared less (or even noticed) about any of the above though.
I really need to start trying that front partial tuck thing more often too.  That may have worked with this, but I didn't think about it at the time.  Plus, I am more comfortable with a loose shirt tail.  I would have been messing with that tuck all day and found it obnoxious. ha
So focus on the pretty scarf and cute sandals instead!  I love these blue green colors.
 I have these same flip flops in a tangerine orange color too.  Today is my first day to wear either pair even though I've had them a for two months.  I know I am not going to get to wear all my summer things before the weather turns colder.  Sad.  I must not shop any more...unless I need a smaller size.  That is my mantra.  Ohhhh, but those thrift shop sales call to me so endearingly.....
