State Capital

 What I wore last Friday as I went with my son and his school Student Council grp to Sacramento to visit the state capital!

We were going to be gone from 5:30 AM to 9:30 PM all day so I wanted to pick an outfit that was comfortable and would hold its shape all day and not show dirt or stains but also look semi-professional as we toured government buildings and museums...

Inspiration from Cabi's current season:

I loved this cotton tank and pants combo immediately when I viewed the current season looks. The fabric is such a thick high quality cotton and it does not stretch yet has the feel of athletic clothing.
Due to the drapy texture it looks very dressy.

I liked the idea of adding a neck scarf and a long necklace. Nude ballet flats keep it practical and a thin cardi in the same tone allow to battle the chilly airplane climate without distracting from the outfit...

Must be the money

Well, I have started working!
This is what I wore on last Thursday...

So there will be some dressier and more conservative output posts coming up in the next following weeks...

Fashion wise, it is exciting to get to dress professionally again at least for a little while...
I tend to still show a sense of fashion style in small doses while keeping it finance professional.

I also decided I would start very basic and simple and slowly break in funkier pieces to create a solid first impression...

So 1st day's inspiration was from H&M Catalog:

Has the look of a suit but these are not matching pieces.  The pants are moto leggings actually and the jacket is part of an old Tahari suit I had.
Layered it with a sleeves chiffon top that has cascading ruffle detail in front for point of interest....

 Jacket - Tahari
Top - Target
Pants - Nordstroms 
Heels - J Crew
Earrings - Baublebar
