Work Outfit Challenge - Day 81 - Channelling Popeye.

Today marks 5 years since the boy and I officially began as an item. We basically have been together since his 21st birthday (10th May 2006) but agreed that we would make the 19th May our official anniversary date. Forgive the photo overload in this post but I thought I would share some memories from the last 5 years. 170 days till our BIG day!

Okay, enough of that lovely dovey stuff and on to more important business - today's outfit. Today was one of those days where I just could not decide to wear. I think I had at least four outfit changes before settling on this outfit, not due to satisfaction but due to time constraints. I think I left the house with 3 minutes to get to work and arrived a minute or two late - ah the benefits of living in a small city and close to work. I love this vintage blouse but due to its oversized nature I feel a bit POPEYE-ish in it. The pants are a bit of a concern too ... comfortable but a little melvin/camel-toe-causing when seated lol.

Oh, you may have missed my latest accessory - a pedometer. Our workplace is participating in the Global Corporate Challenge - a pedometer based walking challenge where employees engage in a virtual walk around the world. Teams of 7 record the amount of steps they do each day and basically it shows you where in the world you've travelled to. It is not a prize winning competition - more of a PRIDE winning competition - one where you want to beat the other employees at your organisation. I didn't start well today - told Rocky I'd take him for a walk last night and then only dragged myself out of bed at 7:20am to be at work at 8:00am. I'll have to take him this afternoon. I'll keep you all up to date on our team's progress :)

Oh, and for all you cheap accessory lovers, DIVA and EQUIP are having a $5 and under sale. Went yesterday arvie and picked up some goodies and might just have to return this afternoon to see what else is on offer.

Apologies for the massive post. Will be away tomorrow as I'm taking a carer's leave day to take mum to the dentist.

Till Monday, over and out
