Some Mondays are just more Mondayish than others. Today was one of those Mondayish days. First of all, it rained. The clouds have a habit of doing that quite a bit lately. And I had to go to work. It seems like we tend to do silly things like that on Monday. And I had/have to study. But that sorta happens everyday. I guess that's why they call it college. Or maybe not. Then we can add in the fact that Dusty has to work all week. Including date night, because Dusties sometimes do that. I suppose it has something to do with that money stuff that comes in handy from time to time. Which means no date night, only study night. And study time is far less good than playtime.
I wore this outfit to work today. I don't think the boss would have approved of the boots on a Monday. Friday, maybe. Because I suppose in some twisted way it would be logical for clothes to change their level of office appropriateness according to the days of the week. But the boss was not there today, so you know what they say, "when the cat's away, the mice will wear boots that their boss may or may not approve of." Or maybe they don't say that.

No offense Monday, but I'm kinda glad you only roll around once a week.
Love,
Ramsey

Ha ha I don't think my boss approves any of my outfits, They are so conservative and would prefer me in black trousers and suit every day but neh! not me! ... Love the way your eyes pop out with the blue of the umbrella, you are so pretty!

I adore this outfit! All of the mixed neutrals look so chic on you, the layers, the patterns, everything is perfection!!!

Rissy said...

I stared at the pics for a second going "oh please let her explain the sweater" because I was like hmmm scarf? really cool sweater? what can it be.

Did I mention I love it?

This Monday was SUPER Monday-ish. The only thing cheering me up is that Mike & Molly will be on in a little over an hour!

Jo said...

Girl you are working it today! Love your rebelliousness!! :)

Jennifer said...

Ah! I love wearing black and brown together. I love how it looks. This was most certainly a VERY Monday-ish Monday. I wasn't a fan. It rained all day here too.

Boo!

Sorren said...

I heart this skirt, a lot. Combining the navy with the neutrals was perfect. If it wasn't 30for30 I would already be on F21 checking if the skirt was available for those of us up north.

Tinfoils Tiaras said...

Ugh I hate Mondays- back to work! Good luck on studying- you look incredible- I love that skirt! xo Emily

Alexis Kaye said...

I agree. I couldn't take more than one Monday a week! By the way, I love your cute, fun personality! your pictures are always so happy :)

Shannon said...

Such a cute outfit!! Love the skirt. Your post reminds me of that Manic Monday song where they sing about how they "wish it were Sunday" which really makes no sense...wouldn't you wish for it to be Friday afternoon instead?

Kate said...

ya! the blue really makes your eyes stand out!

Erin Willett said...

Really love this outfit today! I'm super jealous of that cowl too!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who had a bad monday, hopefully this week will make up for it!! I love your neutral outfit and that umbrella is too fun

Jen HaHA said...

Cool cowl! Now, that's an umbrella! Boots not allowed on certain days? That's crazy! Our cats don't go away enough. 'Tis okay, I don't want to be a mouse.

Alessandra said...

It may have been a Mondayish Monday, but you look great. Love that skirt on you!

Anja said...

Hehe, so funny post! It's true, sometimes Mondays can be a B..., but hey, it's over soon. You definitly looked cute and the Umbrella gave your pictures a nice splash of color!

Lucky you the boss wasn't there, even though you could have told him that it's fashion, maybe he would have understood :) They should loosen up a little in the office!

Farm Girl Fashionista said...

Ahhhdorable!! Love how you put together pieces & colors! Also, you've inspired me to wear my camel belt and boots with outfits that I would've never thought..and..I..love..it!! ;-)

Ana - Better in Sepia said...

You look great, that skirt is super cute! My boss actually did a double-take when he saw me wearing orange tights and a yellow cardigan last week. Oh well.

SherryB said...

You always look so beautiful! I love this outfit!! Oh- and I'm extremely jealous of your gorgeous blue eyes. Sometimes life is so unfair....

GIRL AND CLOSET said...

Ramsey, you are soo fab! I am loving all of your outfits, and thoroughly enjoying your beautiful blog. I think this outfit is lovely in every way, down to every last detail! You look beautiful. xx veronika

Lindsay Jean said...

I love your cowl! Looks so cozy on a rainy day!

meg annan said...

Haha... so funny about wearing boots to work. I've also questioned their appropriateness. I work in an office, and I did wear them one day when it snowed, and no one said anything. I did get a few glances down at my feet. Jealousy, perhaps? That's what I'm sticking with. I also wear colored tights. It blows people's minnnnnds. Cute outfit!

Stefanie D. said...

I love that skirt! SO CUTE!

A La Mode et Plus! said...

Haha I always wonder what my office thinks of my outfits too! My boss is from Texas so he is kind of a fan of boots, but I don't know about everyone else. I love your skirt and sweater/cowl! Both gorgeous.

jeanofalltrades said...

Love the boots/skirt/belted cardi combo! That's a cheery umbrella too! Perfect for gray days. Too cute!

Melissa: Write it in Lipstick said...

Your eyes just pop. Love it all. Oh and Monday I feel the same about you.

The Thrifty Designer said...

Hi Ramsey, I'm Haley aunt...thanks so much for guest posting for her. What great advice! She showed me your blog last week and I just loved your style. It really is classic and ageless - she's 15 - I'm 35 and we could both get inspiration from your photos. And thanks for giving the readers modest, yet super-stylish ideas! Great job.

Katie said...

I love your skirt!

Gaby said...

Even though the rain kinda sucks, umbrellas makes for some pretty cute pictures!

Elle said...

Camille @ NeverNaked said...

Keep saying it, it gets better every time!
