Sucking It Up

My sinus infection and I tried very, very hard not to come to work today.  And we would have succeeded too, if not for those meddling kids.  Well, those kids, and the 8-hour conference call I had scheduled.  So, I sucked it up and put on some clothes:


Sans scarf

As I was going to be trapped in my cubicle all day, I dressed purely for comfort.  I layered a cowl-neck sweater-dress thing-y (Kersh, v. old) over a dolman-sleeved tunic (Gap) and leggings (Macys, v. old).  I added a pop of turquoise with a bracelet (vintage via Lil’ Gypsy), black wedge booties (Nine West “Peekaboo” via Piperlime) and an infinity scarf (Steve Madden via Macys).

Happy Thursday, All!  Please forgive the wrinkles.

  2. Okay, well you look freaking fabulous dressed solely for comfort. Sorry you had to work while sick! Always fun to be the person blowing their nose all day. Hope it clears up soon!

  3. Aw man, sinus infection? Instead of sucking it up I would have just said "suck it, Trebek!" and rolled over in bed. Don't make yourself worse! That said, you look grrrreat. That sweater-dress-whatever is amazeballs.

  9. Hey - real people have wrinkles :) (In their clothes and on their skin!) I always think it's kind of weird when bloggers photograph their workwear and it looks pristine and un-wrinkled. Those bloggers must do their photos in the morning before work :)

    Also, that sweater dress looks amazingly comfy. I would sleep in that thing.

  11. 8 hour long conference call?! That sounds pretty awful if you're healthy, let alone if you have a sinus infection! Ah well at least you look so pretty while sick-I love the scarf!

  13. 8 hour conference call? I can't imagine. The last time I was part of such a thing, it felt so confusing.
