Two Days of Meetings

Our office is pretty business casual and most of the younger girls dress fairly trendy so, when I realized I had two meetings with vendors in two days, I took the opportunity to dig out some of the more business formal outfits I own.  I don't wear them as often because I feel fairly dressy compared to my coworkers when I do.  In fact, I am not going to lie, I feel fairly dressy on normal days too (and you see those outfits most of the time when I post them). 



Day 1
Necklace: ModCloth
Shirt: Express
Skirt: H&M
Shoes: Target




Day 2
Jersey Cardigan: Francesca's Boutique
Necklace:F21
Blouse: Rogan for Target
Skirt: ModCloth
Leggings: Target
T-Straps: Crown Vintage London



In more serious news, I have been completely obsessed with a few items for the spring and since my husband finally got a job after 7 months of being laid off as a architect, I am itching...ITCHING to shop!  The following items have me breaking my New Years no-buy resolution!

Congrats on your husband's job!! That definitely deserves a little celebratory shopping trip! :) Right after grad school I took a great, but very low paying job. A year later I took a much better paying job, and treated myself to a killer shopping trip with part of my first paycheck (I wasn't shopping at all when I was at my previous job)!!

I love the first skirt so much...I have been looking for a black or grey skirt with that shape everywhere!

Ugh, I need some pants other than jeans--I love those ones on your little "wishlist of items", the modcloth ones.
And I love that skirt you wore for your meetings w/vendors...pretty draping.
Sooooooo, idee_geniale and I would LOVE IT if you could make it to the chictopia thing; that would be fun!
