A Sleeveless Button-Down and a Printed Pencil Skirt.

Here is another pencil skirt in another Graphic Black+White print. I love Graphic Black & White and own at least 3 skirts in such a print, as well as a dress and a few tops. I think this skirt would have looked good had I not tucked in the top, as well. But this time around I wore it tucked. And it's another - shocker!! - Teal/Green shade I am wearing on top. I never realized I owned so much teal and this is the summer I have worn this color the most, I must say. Next time I am in the USA I will make sure to pick up some nice button-down/poplin shirts from Express, like this one. I especially love their sleeveless ones. Great for summer and very chic for work, while keeping you cool and fresh. =)

Sexy Orange and Yolo Mondays.

Hello All and Welcome Monday! This is the last Monday of this month and also the start to a new week and a new month - August. I am hoping and praying August is truly the last month of hot, blazing temperatures and that we won't have a lingering, Indian summer. I don't mind having a bit of summer through September and early-mid October as long as the temperayures are bearable.

I promised I would have a second outfit posted last night but I was still having lousy headaches and couldn't stare any minute longer on a computer screen. Usually my headaches are accompanied by me not being able to stand heavy or bright light, or too much (loud) noise. Computers in general are an enemy for the eyes and make your eyes even more tired when you have a headache. Great to report I am headache-free today and staying cool inside my office even-though it's 97 degrees out. Yep, that hot! LOL

Today's outfit features a staple: a black pencil skirt, worn with a cute, sexy tee and a statement necklace with matching earrings. The top is kind of sexy but yet appropriate for work. I also had to give a real quick TV interview that day for work and for those people who saw me on TV (I have rarely seen myself, because I either forget or I am usually at work when they show my features), I got compliments on this look. I must say, I should wear orange more often. I need to own more of it, actually. This top is bright but not in a saturated way.
