Red Flannel

This shirt and skirt are part of a bunch of samples Ross got from work a year or so ago. FYI, he is a web designer for L.L.Bean Signature, and he used to raid the sample closet every so often. He hasn’t been able to make off with hundreds of dollars worth of clothes for me recently (boo), but I still make great use of the stuff he took home then.

Truth be told, I wore a long gray cardigan over it the entire day. My company moved into a new office a few weeks and we haven’t got the heating system worked out yet. My office is the only freezing one, which is great since I’m always the cold one. Lovely how that worked out.

Black pencil skirt: L.L.Bean Signature
Red flannel blouse: L.L.Bean Signature
Belt: vintage
Tan suede booties: Audrey Brooke (via DSW)

Watch: Michael Kors
Red necklace (worn as bracelet): boutique in San Francisco
Studded bangle: vintage

When I get cold at work, all I want to do is jump into a Forever Lazy, but sadly this isn’t the most professional look. I guess I’ll have to keep wrapping myself up in my pashmina (I look like a colonial woman when I do this) and drinking hot herbal tea all day long. Someone needs to invent a Forever Lazy business suit…

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.
