Rise and Shine

Week 2, Day 1 at work in San Antanio. As you can see starting the day quite early before the sun is up!
 These shiny satin pants are from Turkey. They have a nice classic fit that is timeless. Paired them with the slightly sequin tee and a khaki jacket. The necklace added a lot of bling and edge all at the same time. And definitely does not show its F21 prices.

By the way when I got back to the hotel and took off this necklace all those rings and spikes splattered everywhere. Apparently they can just come off! Lesson learned!

I love this ring. It was my mom's of course and I loved and she let me somewhat barrow it on a permenant basis. Even had to add wiring to the ring so it fits.

Some other cooler high heel shoes or booties would have looked sooo much better but I have learned my lesson and have the blisters to show it so stayed with flats. Thought these lizard skin sandals would still look cool enough. Although within the week I might attempt to wear heels again. I have been minimizing the meetings I go to which minimizes the amount of walking.

Jacket - gap (thrifted)
Tee - J Crew 
Pants - from Turkey
Sandals - Victoria's Secret
Necklace - Forever 21

Nothing blog worthy to write today other than the fact that I worked 12 hours straight. Nibbled on the steak salad with no real appetite. Enjoying a cup of decaf tea right now although my cup smells funny so that is bothering me. What is bothering me the most is that I killed a huge cockroach in my room when I came in. Eeew and yuck! I sooo hate cockroaches. Now I am freaked out and am constantly looking at the floor when I walk.

Participating in Monday Mingle, a fashion focused initiative that sprung from the minds of BonBon Rose Girls, and
