A little patriotic with a blue blazer and red pleated skirt.

“Lunch-outside-weather is over.  November is here.”  A sad, but true declaration from my friend.  I’m in denial.  I wore my gauzy pleated skirt anyway.  (But, with tights – I’m not crazy!)

I wanted to wear something slightly patriotic in honor of the election.  Actually, the same co-worker had on her own subconscious patriotic nod with a chic navy and red printed scarf.  I really loved it!

Maybe I will get one for myself, but then I have to be careful not to do the awkward “we are twins at work” thing.

I’ve actually done that a couple of times.  Have you ever been in a similar situation?  It’s a little embarrassing, but good for a laugh.  (:
