A Few Non-Work Outfits

Tho, to be fair, I could wear these to work if I wanted. My office is really casual, & nobody cares what I wear. *I* care, of course, & while I don't consider these unworthy, they're not my "A game" CorpGoth outfits either. These are just cool stuff I like to wear, not necessarily professional enough to me.

Outfit #1 - Worn to Meet an Out-of-Town Friend:
Purple velvet jacket, gift from Lisa | Black T-shirt, Old Navy
Black knit skirt, Target | Burgundy & black stripe tights, We Love Colors | Silver medallion necklace, eBay | Silver cameo earrings, vintage | Black T-strap flats, Aldo

Is it weird to pair purple & burgundy? Maybe it looks stranger in the photos than in real life. I don't know. That's one of the things that makes this combo a little too out-there for work. Fine & funky fun for hanging out & socializing.

Outfit #2 - Worn to Go Shopping:
Black knit military-style jacket, Macy's | Black & white stripe T-shirt, Express | Black jeans, Levis | Black buckle boots, Aldo | Black & silver skull choker, DisneyLand | Silver filigree earrings, Target | Grey flower in hair, random accessory store

Super-casual outfit! Great for running around from store to store. I had originally planned to just go to Target with my husband to pick up some replacement stuff (our space heater in the computer studio died). But ... I ended up breaking my clothing diet. More about that in another post.

This is kind of my go-to errand-running outfit. Dressed-up jeans & a T-shirt. I'm getting a little bit better at making this not look like a teenager :-)


  1. The pencil skirt separates the purple & burgundy enough that it works. If they were right next to each other, there might be some retinal burn.

  2. I am not an expert at wearing colours, so am going to refrain from advice on that. The purple jacket though, is wonderful, and needs to appear frequently. Both sets of earrings are gorgeous. Military-inspired jackets are almost always wonderful and this one is no exception. You should do an earrings post if you haven't already :)
