Cassandra's Gonna Wear: Outfit #2

Keeping in theme of wearing the jewelry I make, I've planned out another outfit for work with a recent set that I've made, and one of my absolute favourites.

Here's the work outfit:
  • Green military-cut khaki jacket, H&M.  I know, here's that jacket again.  It's a great fit, funkier than a 'blazer', and goes with most of my wardrobe.
  • Brown dress pants, Rickis.  Yes, those brown pants again.  I said the last time these pants are indestructible, and have outlived two pairs of jeans, so far.  A great fit, and goes with most of my wardrobe.
  • Blue cotten shirtdress, Value Village purchase; Bluenotes.  I had bought this shirtdress for $2, and would have probably cost about $10 at its original store.  I loved the green trim around the sleeves and bust, and I can wear this to work or casual.  Versatility rocks!
  • White tank top, H&M.  This tank top is one of those you could only really wear with a bikini or the 'appropriate' bra, if there is one, to show, but works great as an undershirt, especially for those shirts and blouses that tend to 'ride low'.  
  • My standard bangles, rings and watch (the 'brown one' this time, keeping with the hue of my outfit).  I threw in my lapis lazuri ring to give myself a little more 'blue' coordination.
  • Om bracelet, CNE/Arts & Crafts Building/Design by Cassandra.  I had worn this bracelet in the last outfit posted.  Sometimes I reattach myself to pieces I had worn constantly at one point, and I'm probably reattaching myself to this one.
  • Wood Heart necklace and matching earrings, Design by Cassandra.  I had made this set on Day #32 of the 365-Day Make n' Tell Challenge and really wanted a chance to show this one off.  It sit really nicely and felt incredibly light.  The earrings were really comfy, too, with a good dangle without being obnoxious. 
It's an advantage to incorporate my jewelry with my 'work and play' outfits, because it gives me a better idea of 'wearability', durability and comfort.  And a chance to brag about what you made when someone pays a compliment!

I do a lot of wardrobe arrangement around my jewelry too - matter of fact, when I'm packing for a trip I pick out the jewelry I want to bring first and then coordinate my clothes around it!

I pack like that, as well! Problem is - the shoes. Matching shoes. And I have so many shoes.
