Marine chic

Taking pictures at work is always a little embarrassing, you can't help but feel like an asshat. Luckily N and I are honing our picture-taking skills to a fine art. We are in-and-out now baby (speaking of In-and-Out, are those burgers any good? And is it true there's a secret code for extra-special deliveries to your car? And I'm not talking narcotics either)

Anyways......even N's lightning-quick shots didn't help me escape the awkward looks of the, oh, about 3,447 people showing up to a post-lunch meeting close by. But we persevered for the sake of the blog. I thrifted the belt and blazer in this outfit and wore them together for a classic red-white-and-navy combo, anchored (no pun intended) by the neutral beige skirt. I tend to stay away from full-blown red but I don't mind it in small doses. I included a picture of the white top I'm wearing under the blazer to show how I remixed an item I originally assumed was too bulky for layering. Previously that top had only ever seen the inside of bars, so I'm glad I found a new use for it.
