Feb 7th - Outfit #6 - Stained Browns

Today was One of Those Days. I found out that I'd ordered food for a meeting for today instead of tomorrow (that's what you get when you're working in the middle of a carpet-laying glue-fest, like I was on Friday). I also had a big spot on the thigh of this skirt when I put it on.
A new skirt in the challenge! This is my tan/cream pinstriped one. You can't see a single one of the zippers or pockets in that picture, which is weird. The thing is littered with them, front and back.

The sweater is also a new item in the challenge. I love it because it's such a basic, and it's exceptional quality (merino wool with a titch of spandex). I last wore it here.
You can see my attempt at making the spot go away.
The Burberry white shirt makes its second appearance. I spilled black coffee all over my arm this morning which soaked through the sweater and stained the white shirt. I rinsed it right away, but could still see the stain. Arg.

Fortunately, I hit it with Folex when I got home and the coffee is completely gone! Hurray! I also put a smoosh of cornstarch on the skirt stain and it lifted it right out. Must have been some salad dressing or something greasy from last time I wore it. Oops.

The stuff:
Only two pairs of shoes left. These are my Miz Mooz walking boots. I walked home from work in them today.

Sweater (Banana Republic, thrifted), shirt (Burberry, thrifted), skirt (Sandwich, consignment), belt (Club Monaco), boots (Miz Mooz), necklaces (Plum).

  3. What a great skirt. I love all the pocket and zippery details.

    Sorry about the coffee spill. =( Last week I spilled tea all over one of my cardigans. I rinsed it out but then I had a big water mark to dry out on my radiator. I ended up wearing a coworkers sweater most of the day. It's become the "community sweater".

    Nice trick getting all the stains out too!

  6. I love your layered necklaces! They go so perfectly. I like the pocket details on the skirt, but omg spills and stains. I know if I eat or drink before photos I am 98% guaranteed to spill something on myself.
