With our wedding and travel over the past lots of weeks I feel like I’ve lost all sense of time and space, but my friends tell me it’s fall? So, as we enter this terrific time of year when everyone awkwardly dances around mother nature’s transitional bipolarity, I thought I’d share this sleeveless camel coat. Now, while a sleeveless coat seems to ring oxymoronic, it’s actually an remarkable piece for fall, especially as we get additionally into September and October. I’m a big fan of vests (most often of the puffer variety) to layer over sweaters during fall, so this sleeveless coat seems like a chic alternative with the added benefits of (a) covering my bum and (b) feeling like I’m wearing my bathrobe in public without looking like I’m wearing my bathrobe in public. The latter is especially frowned upon in professional settings. Don’t ask me why.
Speaking of things frowned upon at the office, I wouldn’t recommend wearing this spaghetti strap magenta number sans vest or blazer at work, but I wanted to highlight it because it is no ordinary tank. It is actually the elusive and formidable BODYSUIT. I feel like bodysuits are always polarizing, but I for one am an enormous, massive fan, especially for working ladies. The level of rage that builds within me as I regularly try to tuck my tee shirts back into my pants or skirt every damn time I stand up or sit down throughout the day is both unreasonable and unhealthy. And yet, it’s unlikely to change, so let’s slap a bodysuit on that situation and just have a great day, shall we? Deal.
