Casual Friday - Doing that Rocker Thing

Ooh, I love Fridays. This is the new skirt that I got at the swap a few weeks ago - I've been saving it:
I've done this combination of my cashmere striped sweater and red rocker t-shirt before (but as a very casual weekend look), but this is the first time I've done it for work. I thought the addition of the buckle-y belt and the kitten heels helped keep it from being too too casual.

It was slightly cooler in the morning, so I did a jacket:
I look so "not amused" here, ha! It ended up getting a lot warmer, so I had to carry the jacket around.

No stuff picture, but I did get some pictures of us dragon boating on Wednesday night. Here is our boat getting some instruction about form from our coach (he's up at the front). I am 2nd paddler from the front, in the white ball cap (click to enlarge):
Resting after a hard paddle:
There I am again - and that's Madame Splashy-Pants behind me, resting before she showers me with cold salt water again.

Have a great weekend!

  3. I literally said "Oh my God" as soon as I saw your pic today. You look that good. I am currently wracking my brain trying to come up with a long sleeve striped T buried in my closet so that I can steal this look. Sadly, I know I don't have one. But I find one, I am going to be a big big fashion thief!

    And thanks for posting the pics of you on the dragon boat. I love seeing photos of everyone in different element. And I'm not gonna lie - it's hilarious to now have a face to go with the name of Madame Splashy Pants. hehe.

  4. That looks like so much fun! I wanted my oldest son to take up skulling; but it's during baseball season and he can't do both.

  5. Dragon boating looks interesting. I'm a kayaker, although I haven't been out much lately.

  6. I love the striped rocker t-shirt underneath it really lifts the look.
    Great lake pics too - that is something I have never tried. Maybe I shoudl give it a go.

  7. Nurmisur, thank you!

    FashionAddict - it's totally fun. Thank you.

    Tina, you are so sweet. Please steal the layering if you like. Glad you liked the pictures.

    Sher, it's a blast - so much fun.

    It's a bit different than kayaking in the strokes, Chris, but loads of fun. There are always tons of kayakers around when we practice - makes me want to try that too.

    Thanks, Wendy!

    Thanks, Jane. That's actually the Pacific Ocean - an inlet off the harbour. Try it!
