The controversial scarf

Happy 4th of July everyone!!

Even though its on a Wednesday, I’m thankful I still get the day off. A little reprieve from the work week never hurt anybody. Least of all me.

Yesterday, I stepped way out of my box with my outfit. I’m normally a simple dress pants and top gal when it comes to work, but I couldn’t take wearing pants one more day and was dying to wear a skirt. Since the legs were far from shaved, a long skirt was the only way to go.

I combined my maxi dress with my maxi skirt and added a belt. But then I took it even further with a red scarf…and that’s where the controversy came in.

I put the outfit on Instagram for opinions. Everyone loved the skirt/dress combo but virtually everyone said no to the scarf. I kept the bravado of this bold choice and decided to go to work with it on, even though everyone was giving it a thumbs down.

The moment I walked into work, a co worker said (with just a bit too much surprise in her voice) ‘You look so nice!’ as if I don’t every day..hmmph

Throughout the day, several of my co workers complimented me on the outfit choice. I haven’t had that much attention on an outfit ever since working there! So picture me confused with all blogland ladies saying no way and in real life people saying definitely!

Whether it fully worked or not. Whether the colors and patterns clashed, I felt good. Which doesn’t happen often with me and my clothing. I stepped out of my typical predictable outfits and was different for a day and I’m glad for it.

So, here’s the outfit in all its patterned glory. Enjoy or cringe. I’m ok with either.
