On the Edge

There are times like yesterday when you get dressed that you know it all works.

There are times, like today, that you are hoping you are not the what was she thinking spokesperson.

You know you have thought it; you see someone, and in your head you ask what was she thinking?

An outfit that starts cute can go horrible wrong. Perhaps something you thought was cute just doesn't work.

My first issue today was that I was breaking our company dress code. Leggings are not allowed. But, I thought if I wore them more like tights I could get away with it! No one sent me home, so I guess it worked.

The part that scared me in wearing them like tights is that this jacket is clearly a jacket in person. It is definitely not a dress. I didn't want people to ask what was she thinking believing that I had left the house without pants!

Whatever people thought, they kept the thoughts to themselves. Women looked, men did too, but I saw no quizzical looks!

This jacket was my Christmas gift from Ben.

The leggings - I have no idea where or when I got them. I know they are not the pair I own from Target. Those are easily identified by the brand tag. I must have picked these up in a boutique somewhere; the material is amazing. It is thick without being heavy. It is opaque without being thick. Does that make any sense? I didn't think so!

Thanks for checking in!




  1. Love the jacket, I like that you wore it as a dress. I am a big houndstooth fan so I think this is adorable :o)

  2. Just looking at the photo, it looks like you have on dark stockings, so the office may have thought that too. The coat......I WANT IT! I love, love, love that coat.

  3. Honestly, Kel, I was waiting for another picture of what you wore UNDER the jacket... and once I realized there was nothing under it, I did think to myself, "WHAT was she thinking?!" However, you do look fabulous, as always. :)

  4. This is how a flasher wears leggings. :)
