Morning y’all! Welcome to my least favorite days: a Monday after a 3 day weekend. I enjoyed my time off immensely. I wore this outfit last Thursday to work. You saw a sneak peek in my last post. Once again, I’m going to start the week out by talking about the end of a week. Summer always makes the weeks go by quicker!

I just can’t help myself. I’m going to talk about this blazer again. I don’t own an “updated” Schoolboy blazer, but I can’t help but think it’s just not quite as good as the classic schoolboy. BUT like I said, I haven’t tried the new one, so I can’t confidently say that. What I can say with confidence is that I love this jacket. I wasn’t wearing it much in the pictures because it was already 90° at 8:30 AM, but I have been carrying this blazer with me to work almost every day. Navy is one of those colors that my mom drilled into me as being a professional color. While my office doesn’t require business wear every day (read: as long as I’m not in pajamas and flip flops I’m fine), I’m still seen by patients and while I’m interviewing people (yes, still. know how to pick references people…) I want to show them that though what’s on the outside isn’t what you should be judged by, it should definitely help tell the story of who you are. A patient’s children told me Thursday that I looked like a city girl. I laughed pretty hard at that one. I told them that I spent 18 years in the city but dressing nicely is something that you can do anywhere.
