friday at the office

It's Friday of a 3 day work week for me (YAY!) so I thought one of my favourite (and oldest) sweaters was appropriate - especially when it's like a rainbow! I bought it years ago during my Club Monaco stock-chick days and I only wear it a couple times a year so it can last be almost forever. I have to say that of all the clothes I've purchased over the years, the stuff I picked up at Club Monaco sticks around in my closet the longest. I find their stuff to be fairly classic like Banana Republic but often with way more of an edge. Anyhoo, the sweater is too short for my no-hipped, bit-of-a-gut-cause-i-don't-know-what-a-gym-is self so for these pics I threw on a Club Monaco coat (coincidentally) I have also had since my Club days. I remember shopping in Montreal and spotting this coat at one of their huge stores there and freaking out because it was such a gorgeous colour, then I begged the manager to let me have it at 50% off - we got 50% off CM clothes that we could wear to work - because I convinced him I would wear it as a "blazer". Smart me. I keep it at the office since I walk to work in an ugly-ass, falling apart wind breaker so I can walk to get a coffee without looking like a complete tool.
