Basically Basics

      Have you ever woken up startled and immediately sensed in your bones that you were impossibly late? Today was that day for me. My fault for sure. I did press the snooze button twice and actually turned off my alarm while telling myself just... two... more... minutes...zzzzz. Yup. After remembering that it was Thursday (a.k.a. the only day I can wear jeans to work) I shimmied into my skinnies and grabbed this striped tube top before remembering I was going to work and made a quick grab for my black blazer. I knew in my head that all these basics HAD to go together. Hopefully...
     My purse was a whole other story so it's just not going to show up in pictures. Let's just say that my purse with a vintage map pattern is totally me and totally NOT this outfit's complement. Eh. You win some you lose some right?
     A pair of navy suede heels and some trusty necklaces completed my outfit. I should probably note that I didn't even have time to put on my jewelry until AFTER I arrived at work. I just grabbed it off my jewelry stands and shoved it into my purse. As I was putting on my necklaces in the bathroom at work, I reached in my purse for chapstick to find... black feather earrings! I forgot I had these in this purse from the weekend of going out. Jackpot. Here is my "OH CRAP I AM SO LATE" outfit.
