Week 2 of the 250 Workday Outfits

It's picture time again, and thanks to lovely folks on Ravelry I believe I've got the orientation issue licked. 
Monday I wore the outfit that I wore on the plane home from Texas.

Investments poly/rayon/spandex slacks, Charter Club Woman aqua blouse with white floral pattern, my very useful aqua fake croc bag, and some new Texas acquired bling from TJ Maxx.  The strappy aqua wedge sandals were found in Savers, another fun place to shop in Austin.
Tuesday's ensemble includes Samantha Grey poly mauve-y pink slacks (I have a matching sweater, but didn't wear it), a BLAIR long sleeve top in multi-paisley print on black ground, a white satchel bag with black & brown trim, my trusty George penny-loafer style pumps, and a necklace from Savers of multiple black chains with pink diamond stations.

 Wednesday, day 8, still wanted lots of color -- how else you gonna get thru "Hump Day"?
My rather puny attempt at a this top, lots of teal, purple, & shiny too.

As you see, I chose to pair it with a pair of purple poly Allison Daley slacks (ancient!! covered in tiny pulls, courtesy the kitties), my brand new black Alfani wedge sandals (from Macy's), the favorite fake croc bag, and some wonderfully OTT (over the top) bling from my Texas swag -- a heavy goldtone chain with rhinestone covered baubles.  I had the goldtone & rhinestone earrings,
Thursday was soft grey, with Larry Levine grey tab waist poly slacks, a Calvin Klein poly grey snake print blouse with roll tab sleeves, a lovely London Fog in grey with darker grey croc print trim (I adore this bag!), some Connie peep toe heels in taupe with black patent trim, and a silvertone mult-chain necklace with rhinestone rondels.
Dontcha love that bag?
Super!  But I really need to practice smiling....
And at long last, it's Friday!  Casual day at work, so jeans, or in this case some White Stag jeggings, are definitely in order.
I found the shirt-jacket (Tapestry brand in the collar) at the Goodwill a few years ago, same time as I found the multi-paisley print worn on Tuesday.  The purse is actually light green leather, and you'd be surprised how many different tops with which it coordinates.  The sandals are SAS, bought at the SAS outlet in San Antonio maybe 5 years ago.  
I like to shop, maybe not as much as certain folks I know, but I do tend to hang on to what I've bought.  Shopping at places like Goodwill and Savers and Clothes Mentor really does allow more wardrobe choices for the puny dollar.
