Because if you have to dress business professional, it might as well be in coral. I know, I know, this isn’t “business professional” until I throw on a blazer to match the heels–but it’s 90 degrees in Wacotown today; a black blazer was not about to happen.

I bought this skirt after interview season (boooo) so this was actually my first chance to get to wear it. The length is great for me; you know how heels have a habit of shortening a skirt by a few inches? I don’t have to worry about that with this one, because it still grazes my knees in 3-inch heels (#SicEm). And then this blouse…I am not known for the diversity of color in my wardrobe. If I’m not in navy or a neutral (tbh navy is a neutral at this point), someone call the Tribune, because that’s breaking news. There’s really not a top I’d rather make headlines with, though. I love the cut and buttons on this one, and remember how I said it was 90 degrees out? You couldn’t tell I was sweating, so that makes this a definite win.

I’ve had these heels for years, and have actually had them re-heeled three times already, and I’m due for a fourth soon. I should probs invest in a new pair, but I can’t seem to let these go. They’ve seen me through so many interviews, Rush events, and church programs, so I think I’m holding on for the sake of sentimentality. There are worse things a girl could do.

Hope you’re enjoying the first week that actually feels like summer! Here’s hoping it lasts (and that the forecasted thunderstorms don’t come through tonight…).
