I put together this outfit with day-to-night intentions. I wore it to work, and then to an alumni event at our favorite near-campus bar. Because I'm me, I wanted my outfit to match my fancy new work business cards, which are black and gold. I mean, it's a great color combo anyway, but I wanted there to be that ~brand recognition~ when I handed out my cards. This probably would have been more effective if it hadn't been like 32° and I hadn't worn my coat all night.

In case you missed it, I wore this shirt over here last time. It's pretty much the best (though I guess not as good as the shirt from yesterday's post!).

In other very fancy and exciting news, one of my dearest blogger friends is celebrating her 4th bloggiversary! Kate is a badass and I was so honored when she asked me to be a part of her bloggiversary celebration.
