This is about the closest I get to a power suit in my line of work. I could go to work in a tee and a pair of jeans (if I wore those) everyday, and nobody would say anything. I'm glad that despite our freedom, we all dress creatively. And even better- sometimes when my coworkers get tired of a pair of earrings or a sweater, I am the beneficiary!

The wind was still with us yesterday, as you can see by my flying skirt and hair above. I originally thought I was putting on footless tights, since it was finally warm, but discovered that they indeed had feet and that I was running late, so full-on tights it was. It was a bit too warm for the beautiful, sunny day, but at least work was freezing as usual.
(Half of my pics came out like the above. I wasn't kidding about that sun.)
This is the first time I've gone full-on turban with a scarf, and I loved the results. It stayed put all day, which practically never happens, and it felt a little more fashion-forward than the scarf-as-bun or bandanna styles I usually wear. I think you can expect to see this one pretty often from now on.
The earrings are double-sided, and move around as I walk. Sorry to cover your face, Kierkegaard, but they're just so pretty. They didn't win for best decoration in my small office, though. That goes to the poster below, which never fails to make me smile:
