Dark colors + stripes + aqua shoes

After writing a beautiful blog about how energized and happy I had been for the last couple of days. I've now hit rock bottom. I've hit that wall that we hit once we've run out of fuel. I hit that wall at work today, about 40 minutes before my shift ended, so that's good. But I've hit it hard. 
This morning I was scheduled to work 7:30 - 12. When I got there my manager told me that someone had called in and she had to go work at the other store, that she was going to leave me alone for an hour and then one of the assistants was going to show up. But if I could she needed me to stay until 4 pm. Which is okay, but not when you barely slept because your so used to falling asleep at 2 am instead of 11 pm. And it took you forever to fall asleep. But hey! who doesn't want the extra cash? 

Well, today's blog is an outfit post. So on this day I got dressed super fast. I originally wanted to wear a different shirt and no blazer, but I ended up wearing this outfit instead. This outfit was inspired by my desire to wear my shoes. So that's pretty much how this outfit came to be. Also, I love this skirt. I wear it all the time. 
Blazer: Dynamite
Shirt: Unknown
Skirt: Old Navy
Shoes: Le Chateau
