I was a bit worried about work today. Usually I’m prepared to shrug off any comments but I was feeling a little, delicate, today and if anyone questioned me I am almost sure I would have kicked them in the shin. And that’s not a good career move.

My fears were allayed as soon as I got in the lift this morning and the HR lady commented that she liked my hair clips. Win. Then my boss said she liked my nail polish. Epic win.

I mean it’s not as though I was indecent or anything. After all, I’m wearing tights, a skirt and a button up shirt. They just happen to clash. But if you look real closely, there is a thread. Allow me to direct you.

The leopard print tights share both the red of the shirt but also the darker shade of the skirt – which in turn has both a check pattern and a bluey colour that matches the check shirt – which has a faint yellow stripe – which works with my yellow skull and cross bones.

Not to mention of course the red of the paisley clip with the red of the skull clip which, wouldn’t you know it, matches the skull necklace.

Hair clips: Sportsgirl & gift
Shirt: Target
Necklaces: Gifts
Singlet: Was Mum’s
Skirt: Myer
Tights: Target

    Hehe, love your justification. I was just saying to someone else in blogland that I also do that. David even does it! "The red stripes on my shorts match my top" etc :p You look grand. Sorry to hear you felt delicate. Wanna talk about it? :p
