What A Novel Idea!

 Sweater, Tommy Hilfiger. Scarf and jeans, Banana Republic. Flats, Geox.


OK, so I know that this outfit is not exactly original, but you may be surprised to learn that it landed me several compliments (and only a couple of those were backhanded) when I debuted it at work last spring. I believe one guy even called me original, suggesting that I'd somehow invented pink and green. Together. Obviously this man had never been golfing, or anywhere in New England, or noticed Andy Bernard's wardrobe on The Office. But who was I to teach him about the preps and the wasps? Besides, it's not like making such an outrageous claim was beneath me. Back in high-school, I terrorized my little sister with the Kelly Green and Lavender combination. "Soooo me," "no one else thought of it," and "I should patent this," were heard leaving my lips. And although I like to think I've matured since then, my sister won't let me forget it. Undeserved flattery from a coworker instead of warranted mockery from a family member? Yes, please!

lol, yes, compliments don't have to make sense for me to lap them up either. And you look way more fun in these colors than Andy. :)

So I think I'm going to have to head into BR to check out their jeans now that I've seen how marvelously Audrey Hepburn you look in yours!!

Too funny! At least you're better than me, in junior high I thought I invented wearing your sweatshirt inside out (you read that right). Even IF and that's a big if, I was the gal who started that trend do I really want to take credit for it?!
