Layering with Lace

Lace is typically not something I utilize in my work wardrobe. However, this lace tank layered over one of my standard button downs adds just the right amount of texture. It’s feminine yet paired with these structured work separates adds an interesting and unexpected detail. I wore this outfit to work a few weeks ago, when tights were still a requirement. This outfit would look just as cute with bare legs and a pair of sandals or brown pumps.

P.S. I can’t believe Memorial Day is right around the corner. I plan to take it easy and enjoy the nice weather coming our way. I’d love to hear about your plans. Anyone doing anything fun?

Put a Fox on It

Several things come to mind when I look at this adorable fox sweater: Zooey Deschanel, Christmas gifts from your grandma, Firefox, Put a bird on it from Portlandia… the list goes on.

I wore this outfit to work one snowy day and when people complimented me on it, all I could say was something to the affect of, “Thanks, I love cute animals…”

My name is Christina, I’m 28 years old, and I am addicted to cute animals. Also, cat videos on YouTube, let’s just be honest.

I don’t care how old I am. I am totally embracing the quirky placement of woodland creatures on clothing. After all, I am curious like a fox.
