You Better Work: 2015 – Week Eight

Written by Lindsay Scouras

I don’t want to be another person that’s just constantly bitching about the weather but FOR GOD’S SAKE WHEN WILL THIS WINTER END. There, I said it.

Listen, I know I don’t have it as bad as my comrades in Boston (as someone who used to live in Cambridge many moons ago with street parking, I get it), but I feel like I’m starting to get in something of a rut with my wardrobe. I mean there’s only so many outfits that you can plan around snowboots, you know? I don’t even remember the last time I wore a skirt. Even though Nantucket hasn’t had the same snow that other parts of New England are buried under right now, the removal of what is now almost a month old snow and ice seems to leave something to be desired. Falling on my face on the uneven sidewalks and cobblestones of Main Street was a legitimate fear of mine in July; I can’t even describe what it’s like just walking into the office from my car right now.

Never one to completely give up fashion for function, I’m doing my best to stay positive and bright. I don’t care that it’s winter anymore, I am wearing every neon and floral pattern I can get my hands on. I’m done dressing for the season. At this point, I’m just trying to wear the least depressing clothes I have. And for this past week, that includes:

Monday: Old Navy chambray & loafers (sim) / Thrifted Brooks Brothers blazer / TJ Maxx pants (sim) / ILY Couture necklace (sim)


Tuesday: Talbots sweater (sim) / Banana Republic top (sim) / J.Crew pants (sim) / Target belt (sim) / Old Navy flats (sim)


Wednesday: Forever 21 sweater (sim), pants (sim) & earrings (sim)/ Old Navy necklace (sim) / C.Wonder flats (sim)


Thursday: Limited dress (sim) / J.Crew blazer / Dolve Vita boots via Nordstrom Rack / Monelle earrings / LIT Boutique necklace


Friday: Forever 21 sweater (sim) & pants / NY&Company top (sim) / Claire’s necklace (sim) / Sears booties (sim)


What are you all doing to remix your wardrobes? I don’t know how many more “winter work outfits” I can Pin before I lose it and shred all of my bulky sweaters.

Stay stylish,
