Jewel Tones

Shirt: F21 - it's a bit more more purple than the camera picks up
Skirt: DIY by me almost 8 years ago
Shoes: Steve Madden from Emeryville Store; 
got these on sale for $20 because this pair was marked with the wrong price!
Bracelets: left arm - both purplish and beaded
right arm - Christmas gift from co-worker
Nail polish: OPI Quarter of a Cent-Cherry

This is a modified version of the outfit that I wore to work today. I was really sore today from hiking Runyon Canyon yesterday with the family so I decided not to wear the heels or the skirt and opted for some plain black dress pants from Express. Occasionally, comfort is the deciding factor in what I'm going to wear to work that day. I am not a morning person by ANY means so pants are usually easier to throw on in the morning instead of trying to find tights and a skirt. 

The skirt is made out of a men's large t-shirt from my grade school days on LHTV (Laurel Hall Television). I made it sometime in the beginning of high school when I was really into making clothing for myself out of old t-shirts from all my LH class trips. The band of the skirt is made from an old Limited Too sweatshirt that I wore when I was little. You can see the red of the band peaking out in the picture that I am holding Tanner in (it is the same color as the nail polish). 

I love this bracelet that one of my co-workers got me for Christmas. I am not quite sure where she got it but it came in the cutest case with some Italian on it. I don't wear it very often in real life (except picture taking) because it is very chunky and catches on all of my clothing, which drives me crazy. The same goes for rings, they tend to get in the way of typing and other activities, plus I take them off and play with them and subsequently lose them! So I just try and stay away from most rings and bracelets but I want to venture out more and try wearing more rings and bracelets.
