Playgrounds & Lollipops - The Professional

{Blouse: Ann Taylor Loft; Trousers: Forever 21; Shoes: Dolce Vita; Jewelry: Stella & Dot; Watch; Michael Kors}
If I had a real, actual paying job to go to, this is what I'd wear.  Instead I only have a gig where I go into my husband's office to do some "bookkeeping" a few hours a week and get paid with bags of chips and silver dollars.  I didn't let the lack of a real paycheck stop me from dressing up just a bit today though.  We had a new employee start and I wanted to make a good impression, you know, try to at least present our family run business as somewhat legit and professional.  Not to discredit the husband, he does a fine job of running the place, he just does it in shorts and a t-shirt.

When I wore this cardigan last week, it reminded me of these pants that I originally wore with them and although today was a scorcher, the soft rayon actually kept me pretty cool and the cotton blouse is as light as air.  I felt cool and collected.  Not calm, because I really don't ever feel calm.  Just cool & collected.  I'll take 2 out of 3.

So happy Wednesday everyone!  I personally feel a little out of sorts after a very full and fun Labor Day weekend.  We took full advantage of our time together and spent all day and night with different sets of family and/or friends.  It was a fantastic way to end summer but having a Monday on a Tuesday sort of leaves you feeling a little behind.  Looking forward to playing catch up the rest of the week.

Linking up with No Model Lady for the first time & Lindsay for WIWW
