I wore this brightly colored, jungle print tank top to work completely unaware of how bodacious it is:
When I'm standing up straight, it looks fine. But the second I sit down and slouch just a little (as I'm prone to do) - BAM! Suddenly the top is less work appropriate than someone who is actually sitting at her desk - at work- would hope for. I realized this when I noticed a male co-worker intently maintaining eye contact during a casual conversation. Whoops!
Thank goodness I'd paired the top with three conservative pieces: black cashmere cardigan, high waisted skirt and kitten heels. Toss in two of my favorite pieces of jewelry and you can see why I felt so great walking out the door. Oh well. I'm always complaining of having a wardrobe comprised only of work clothes. Now I officially have an item that is definitely play-clothes only!
