Today’s casual work outfit started out much more complicated, with me mentally trying to layer about three different things and just not feeling it. So I simplified my outfit to a long sweater + skinny jeans + ankle booties. And once I stepped into these gorgeous burgundy booties, all seemed right with this outfit. 😉
After I wore this outfit, I realized it’s essentially the same outfit that I wore for Valentine’s Day in 2015 — with the same tote bag! — but with different shoes. (And I added a scarf to my tote bag this time around.) My style is consistent, y’all. But I like that it demonstrates, yet again, how much a difference accessories and shoes can make, and that remixing = real life!
At the last minute, I added my new-to-me vintage plaid scarf to my tote bag as a fun accent. There’s a burgundy stripe in the plaid, so I’m staying true to my color-coordinated instincts. 😉
We took these photos by the Sounder train station near the Tacoma Dome, where I spied this little enclave of foliage. I love these bits of nature tucked away in urban landscapes!
I often ask Sam to take some action shots of me walking. It doesn’t work every time, but I loved how Sam captured my gait in this shot. I do like to walk with purpose, which the pic below definitely highlights.
