This was my work uniform for most of my career. Until the past year, I worked in a very much behind-the-scenes capacity in my field, which meant little to no client interaction – hence, my casual take on business wear. I’ve been wearing blazers far more frequently than cardigans in recent months, but I still occasionally feel a twinge of nostalgia for the old standby. And what do you know? It still works. It’s a cute outfit, even if it does feel a little “2009-2012 Adina”. Long time blog readers will probably know exactly what I mean.
There’s not much else I have to say about it. You guys know I love me a nice floral, and J. Crew can usually be counted to bring out a good one every other year. This one is a few seasons old (found at consignment) and it’s definitely a keeper for me. I love the dark & moody palette, and it plays nicely with my wardrobe colours – including this jade green. Throw on some black pants, and I’m good to go. To work 🙂
