Yesterday was a bit of a fashion challenge actually because my outfit had to be doubly work appropriate and still look casual enough to catch a bite to eat and The Amazing Spiderman later with a group of friends afterwards on break.  This ended up being the perfect in-between outfit, smart but casual enough to avoid being typically overdressed as usual.  Is it too early to dress and pretend it's spring to get through the rest of winter?  At mid-winter maybe but this outfit was just too perfect and I wanted to debut my new collared top so badly.  I wear collars like they offer protection against misfortune and evil but most of my pieces are more kitschy and cute in a Zooey Deschanel way, but when I saw this more sophisticated staple I had to get it. 

The mint blazer and my floral pants are actually two of my favorite spring staples: the blazer I thrifted from a local Savannah goodwill for $6, pants I got at a Glassons outlet for approximately the same during last year's spring sales.  The real problem with these pants is that as amazingly comfy and gorgeous as they look, they are unfortunately (or at least this pair) is really terribly made and the seams have ripped at certain places twice now which is a sign saying "donate me now to charity" but I can't really bear the thought of doing that so I've just been going along and patching them with my fingers crossed.
