Comfy Profesh

One thing I love about my office is that it requires me to dress up, but not too much. I don’t need to wear a suit, but I also can’t wear sweatpants. Yay for casual professional!

I picked these oxfords up at DSW this weekend and am loving them. They’re easy to wear and work with pants and skirts, so I’m feeling pretty good about my new pair of Fall shoes. I typically allow myself one new pair of nice shoes per season (nice being not $5). This keeps things fresh, but without going overboard (which I have the tendency to do… oops).

I got this sweater at H&M years ago and still wear it a lot, the color is just so Fall! I really love goldenrod. Ok, that’s a lie. I love the color, but not so much the evil plant, with its toxic pollen that is currently doing a number on my sinuses. Can you see that haze in my eyes? Curse you goldenrod! But thanks for your lovely color.

About sweetersalt

Salt = sodium = bad. Sweet = calories = bad. Well, isn't that just a bleak outlook. I firmly believe that without salt and without sweet we all just live in a world of lettuce. Plain lettuce. Fun? No. This blog is about life. Namely, my life. But, not that specific. I myself am simply not that interesting. I live an ordinary life, work an ordinary job and do ordinary things. But... life is all about experiencing that feeling you get when you really, really like something. If you don't feel a little warm in your heart when you walk into a farmer's market or try on a piece of beautiful clothing that fits you perfectly (that just so happens to be a great deal!) then you should probably keep on a' movin' from my little plot of internet. Sweeter salt is my metaphor for the good things in life, sprinkled over everything in moderation. Banana? Kinda boring. Banana smoothie - yum! White tank top? Yawn. Statement necklace layered over said tank - now we're talking! I live in Portland, Maine. I love cooking, eating out, riding my bike and approachable fashion. This blog does not chronicle my every waking moment. This is because you will probably not be entertained by the 10th day in a row that I eat the exact same salad for lunch. It does chronicle a healthy, active, fun-filled, colorful lifestyle, in Portland and beyond. It also covers dogs. Cute ones mostly.

    What a great look! I just got a similar pair of boots but mine have a wedge instead of the heel (see here: http://ordinarilyurbane.com/2010/09/15/oui-effie/) They’re so comfy! xo

    Those shoes are definitely a good purchase! They’ll take you far in life! They sorta remind me of the Mushroom colored suede booties I wore yesterday and well let me tell you I wear those babies all the time!
