A quick reminder that it’s time to vote for your favorite outfit from February – thanks in advance!
For this Friday, I’m posting a “casual Friday” kind of work look. (Although I totally wore it on a Wednesday. But whatevs. I wasn’t teaching, and I was suffering from sinus congestion all last week.) I donned my new “Follow Your Heart” sweater I got this winter for about $5 on clearance at Old Navy, pairing it with patterned ankle pants. Add neutral flats, and I was done!
The backdrop is the Beverly Cleary map on the entrance wall to the Hollywood branch of the Multnomah County library system. It’s huge — it’s the whole wall and made of marble! — and it shows all the major locations in Portland that relate to Beverly Cleary and her books. (And yes, I was a *total* Ramona growing up. Seriously. As a kid reading those books, I suspected that Beverly Cleary was writing about me. Click here for a blog post by Cathie Glennon about Beverly Cleary spots, plus a larger pic of the map.)
I’m so glad my friend and colleague Stephanie suggested this spot for a photo backdrop — and again, a huge thanks goes out to her for taking pics last week while my husband was away at a conference.
And don’t those red tones in the pants and the sweater match up exactly?! A very pleasant surprise when I realized this. Plus, the pink lettering of the sweater matches the pink accents in the ankle pants. It was meant to be. ♥
Details: Sweater: Old Navy, gift-carded this winter / Patterned ankle pants: Target, gift-carded this fall / Flats: Payless, last spring / Pearl drop earrings: Bridesmaid gift, years ago
Hope y’all have a great weekend!
