Daily MelWear: Pink, Yellow and Gray

First of all, is it gray with an "a" or grey with an "e"? What's the difference?  Considering how persnickety I can be about language, you'd think I'd know the answer to that but I don't.


In theory, I really liked this outfit.  Gray (grey?) pants, yellow and white striped shirt, pink cardigan, nude shoes.  I like the combo of gray, yellow and pink.

In life, however...I'm not sure this meshed very well.  I think it'd be better if the sleeves of the cardigan were a little longer, if the pink was more pastel than deep, and maybe if the cardgan was longer too.  And maybe a belt.  At any rate, I think up my oufits either during the day or while I'm drifting to sleep at night and I don't normally have time before work to try anything out.  I picture it in my head and hope it works because I don't have time to change.  :) (Notice the wet hair every day?  I used to have time to dry it...not sure what happened.  Workouts taking longer?  I dunno.)

Oh, I had my annual job eval yesterday.  She used the word "excellant" a lot.  There was nothing she told me that I needed to improve.  However, there was also no mention of a raise.  I do know that within this corporation, if you get good marks on everything you're pretty much assured of a raise.  This year I think it's 2%.  I'm pretty sure she just forgot to mention it, since she's not really the one who decides if I get it or not.

Today starts a new study on a blood glucose meter (I work in Diabetes Research as the Clinical Research Support, which is really just a fancy name for Administrative Assistant but it gives my boss the excuse to forget Administrative Professionals Day because she says that I'm not just an Administrative Assistant. Heh. It'd still be nice to get taken out to lunch or something.).  These meter studies are EXHAUSTING and I'm not even a Research Coordinator!  We have patients coming in and out of our office all day long, so much paperwork to do, questions to answer, places to run.  This one is going to run for the next 4-5 weeks.  My goal is to be dressed comfortably since I'll be running around like a chicken with its head cut off most of the time.  But I still wanna be cute! :)

Whew! This post got a little lengthy.  Sorry about that!  Here are the items in today's outfit:

Yellow/White shirt: Macy's (clearance) (first wear)

Pink Cardigan: Plato's Closet

Gray Pants: Charlotte Russe (pre-pregnancy)

Nude Snakeskin Pumps: DSW (clearance)

Necklace and earrings: Wal-Mart


  1. Grey is the English spelling, Gray is the American. Both are acceptable.

    I like the yellow shirt.

    Today (wait for it) I got dressed. Khaki pants, multi colored not solid top, burgundy shoes. I had to go to the college to turn in paperwork. And pick up my class schedule. Because I'm cool like that. ;)

  2. I always use "grey" and I have no idea why. Glad your eval went well today!

  3. Adorable shirt layering. I especially like the sleeves. Cute shoes too!

    I think of cool-toned as grey and warm-toned as gray. But often I end up typing grey.
