I wore this yesterday to my monthly workplace after-hours gathering with my coworkers. This was our first time arranging such an event, outside the confines of our cubicles. This month, we met up for happy hour at Trinity Bar in Lincoln Park. It's a psuedo-Irish sports bar with lots of yuppie douchebags and Cubs fans. Popped collars and Abercrombie&Fitch. Not my kind of bar at all, but I needed to make an appearance. Especially since I work from home now, so I don't get to see my coworkers very often. I wanted my coworkers to see what I wear when I'm not decked out in BIZ CAZ.
This outfit is inspired by Luke's Tattooine gear. "Waaaaah, Uncle Owen, I wanna go to the Academy too!"
Here's a photo of how I stayed warm as I treked up to Lincoln Park. Scarf worn as a hood, legwarmers over my jeans and shoes, and belt went on the ouside. I'm really into the belted coat + hood look this winter...can't go wrong with functionality. This belt was handmade by Zana Bayne in NYC, and I love it. It's my new go-to belt for, well, everything.
(h&m scarf and legwarmers, gentle fawn coat)
I work with fantastic people and I'm really lucky to have my great job. The recession has been a nighmare for many people, and I feel very blessed that I have a steady job that I'm good at. Also, working from home in my pajamas is the fucking tits.
