When: Thursday December 2, 2010

Plaid top: Birthday present from my parents
Yellow skirt: El Titan (Panama)

Brown tights: Target
Caramel boots: Old Navy
Brown Liz Claiborne purse: TJ Maxx
Floral headband: Saks (Panama)

Where: Went to work and celebrated a friend's birthday with cake and all! Yummy :)

Today I wore a more casual look to work than usual. It was just one of those days that I wanted a simple outfit that was easy to put together. When it comes to bold color combos, I think orange and yellow is one of my all time favorites!

Today is also the first time I wear boots to work. I somehow feel that boots aren't as formal as other shoes such as pumps or booties, but the weather is just getting too darn cold! haha.

Do you wear boots to work? Do you think they are appropriate?

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this plaid top:

  2. you look so cute in this outfit and colors. I delight with matrix eyes seeing all the hidden combinations surface, from your tights with your belt, the yellow flowers with your skirt, etc. Its a delight to the eyes to enjoy your thoughtful interest in combining everywhere. jgm

  3. Love that you can use many colours in one look so perfectly!

  4. Oh, I just love how fearless you are with pairing up bold colors! You look so fresh and beautiful in these colors:)


  5. I wear boots to both of my jobs. One of them we can dress casually but the other one we have to dress business casual. I think you can definitely wear boots to work- as long as they don't look to casual (like uggs).

  6. I love all the colors...such a great yellow skirt and very cool headband. I always wear boots to word...too cold here in Chicago not to!

  7. I think that boots are fine at work! I wear them a lot!

  8. These bright colors are too fabulous! I wish my work outfits looked this cheery!

  9. Love this look, the colors and the boots! I think in winter they are appropriate, and I do it all the time.

  14. I love the color combination! I think boots are totally appropriate for work when the weather calls for it. These are a cool choice because they are sleek overall a bit dresser then other boots!
