Ode to a beautiful day

Today I am feeling pretty sharp.  Feeling sharp for a few reasons:

First off, I like my outfit.  It is a basic outfit with a sweater, skirt, tights, and pumps.  But the sweater is comfortable and interesting enough on its own to be a go-to-staple.  The skirt is part of a suit that I usually split up and wear separately.  I love texture pieces, and I regard suit splitting as bonus round in the office wardrobe game.  “Outfit one and, bonus! Outfit two!”  Both not too matchy-matchy to look like I am interviewing for a different job when I arrive in a business casual environment, but put together enough to keep it classy.  I also accessorized with my favorite FoundryM necklace.  Most stunning, I am wearing tights and open toe pumps and not freezing!  Hello Spring!  I hope this sticks. 

Second reason this outfit has me excited is the sweater.  Previously I mentioned its comfort but I also feel pretty smart because I found this sweater stuffed on an over crowded shelf while organizing my closet.   I managed to make it look totally presentable without an extra unnecessary dry cleaning.  I am not good at ironing, and I do not have a steamer but I took the sweater with me in the shower and like magic it looks freshly cleaned.  Yes the simple things excite me on sunny days.
