Back to the Drawing Board

I mentioned earlier this month that I am on various committees for the kids' school activities and earlier this week we had a parent teacher conference at one school, then I stopped by the other school to drop off a check, and then I went back to the first school for a committee meeting followed by a board meeting.  I opted for flats again, and wore this awesome pair of Jill Sander grey slacks that I found at a consignment shop and immediately became my most favorite pants, as well as this oxford shirt that I ordered from Banana Republic last month during their 50% Sale. When I was looking up these pants it dawned on me that they are supposed to be cropped pants, but I am so short, they are just regular slacks for me.
Oxford: Banana Republic; Slacks: Jill Sander 
I would like to point out that the Banana Republic site showed this shirt rolled up with the blue cuff visible and it is simply not possible for the blue to be visible unless you do it on purpose because the inside of the sleeve is not blue.  In order for the blue to show the way I have it, you have to roll up the sleeves in a very deliberate way and there is nothing effortless or easy about it.  Also, while the regular size Large fits me loose in the torso, but the sleeves are extremely long, I didn't have the option of going up a size in the Petite fit to an XLP and ordered the Large Petite size.  As expected, the sleeves and shoulders now fit perfect, but it is much more fitted in the torso now and it pulls a little in the bust. I decided to keep it because I really love the fabric and the optimist in me is hoping that if I can drop those elusive 5 pounds, it will be my most perfect shirt yet.  My logic (or lack thereof?) gives my husband headaches.
Earrings: Blue Nile; Necklace: c/o Dogeared Jewelry 
Watch: c/o LaMer Collections; Bag: Chloe (very old, but I LOVE!)
Flats: Sam Edelman (old, but I want these next)
This is as professional as I can look these days, but I'm glad that I don't have a daily dress code.

Have a great weekend!
