OOTD: Out of Place

The ladies in my office:  fashionable.  Fashionable ladies.  As my "business casual" attire continues to evolve, I often find myself pulling inspiration from my female coworkers and their various interpretations of business casual attire.  It's a lucky thing---not only are these folks great to work with and helpful about professional topics, but they are also helping me mix up my style a bit.

The only significant downside to having such stylish coworkers is that when one of my outfits misses the mark, the misstep feels exponentially amplified.  (See, e.g., here.)

Take this outfit, for example.

I felt like going a bit more casual on this particular day, so I opted for a light gingham shirt and a formless cardigan.  I even passed on the heels and donned flats (glitter flats, but flats nonetheless).  Sure, it wasn't the crispest potato chip in the bag, but it seemed fine from most angles.

So of course that day was the day I had lunch with the girl who rocks navy like she came out of the womb in a perfectly-fitted blue dress, and the girl who actually used to be a no-joke real-live fashion model.

On days like that, I might as well be a character from The Walking Dead.

Hey, at least I try.

In this Outfit:
Anthro Cissus Buttondown (S, TTS)
H&M Cardigan
Anthro Colloquium Trousers (6, TTS) (PS:  The same sad fate as befell my Split Pea Trousers also befell these pants.  More on that next week.)
Payless Chelsea Glitter Flat (9, TTS) (here)
Anthro Earrings (name?)
Necklace from Florence, Italy
Zodiac Atmosphere Watch (gift)
