too secretary?

I have a confession to make.

This OOTD is a lie.

I never wore it. Not in its entirety, at least.

I'm so ashamed.

I'm so sorry.


blouse, anthropologie
skirt, banana republic
belt, j.crew
pumps, levity

The truth is, I thought it looked too "secretary lady" after seeing the pictures, so I quickly swapped the pencil skirt and pumps for jeans and wedges. But what's weird is the fact that I know that while the photographed ensemble may have been too secretary lady for me today, that doesn't mean it won't seem pleasantly secretary lady for me some other day.

Curse my fickle mind!

Also, I absolutely love this blouse and its little neck bow. I can't figure out why I don't wear it more often...

PS. Happy birthday, Bilbo and Frodo Baggins!


  1. I actually LOVE this outfit, you look very polished.
    That blouse is SO pretty. Love the pumps too.

  2. Gasp, how could you not wear such a cute, yet sexy outfit. I don't think there's anything wrong with a secretary-esque look if done in a hot mama kind of way. :)

    I love that blouse!! I had a tie-neck blouse from F21 that I absolutely loved. I'm pretty sure I got rid of it recently because I've grown (in size) since I first bought it and I still miss that pretty top.

  3. Your hair has been looking long and luscious lately - loving it!

  4. I'm devastated! :) haha
    Love the outfit though and think it looks lovely on you. I guess that is just my sort of style.

  5. Aw, you look so cute..the print and color of that top is fab!

  6. Hee~hee!
    Wait until I am unemployed starting next week and living in yoga pants....will all my outfits be staged, or not????

  7. Sometimes I do that too after I take my outfit photo, swap out the cardi or shoes. I've never admitted it though :D I really like the top with the pencil skirt. I think it looks so professional.

  8. Dude! We're sorta kinda a bit like twinnerz today! Love it. Love your bow blouse!

  9. i love that blouse! i missed out on it when it went on sale. argh. oh well. i'll just live vicariously through you and other people :)
    and this is a great outfit! i love the little bit of yellow mixed in there. hmm at least you'll have a future reference for one of those days where you just can't seem to come up with an outfit?

  10. AmyK, this outfit suits you so well, even if you thought it was a bit "much". Definitely wear it again soon because the blouse is so pretty!

  11. Oh, this is so cute! Secretary looking or not, I love it! I bet it looked just as cute with jeans and wedges too though...such agreat versatile shirt! Love it!

  12. I think it's cute! Plus the secretary bow/blouse look is so in right now :)

  13. I think it looks great, not too secretary at all. That blouse is ADORALBE :)

  14. You look fantastic! I love the blouse, it's a great color on you :)
