Ok, so I know I used this inspiration once before, but it’s a different cardigan and therefore a more literal interpretation. (Even though it’s not a blazer. And I’m not wearing heels. And don’t have a purse like that.) The first one is the inspiration, the second is an outfit I wore on 4/21/13, and the third is what I wore today.

Friday Happy Hour
Friday happy hour has become a somewhat regular thing for me with my KISA and his coworkers. It’s nice being able to put a face to the names and get to know they a little bit better. And, I’m not gonna lie, I love hearing them tell me how much he gushes about me.
Since I worked from home for the day I decided to do all of our laundry while the apartment washers and dryers were available. I do realize I wore these clothes earlier in the week, but they didn’t know that.
Jacket: The Limited; Shirt: J.Crew (this season); Necklace: Urban Peach Boutique (this season); Belt: H&M (this season); Jeans: Levi’s; Shoes: Zara (this season)
They Call Me Mellow Yellow
Ok, so maybe mellow has never been a word used to explain me.
My gracious coworker Mansi invited me to join her for lunch with her husband at his work…Google. (I’m that dorky girl that gets excited about visiting a company I’ve heard of, even though there are tons of them around Mountain View. I’m even that way when I see a building or sign for a company that I’ve heard of, which seems to happen a lot around here. I get to rub elbows with a bunch of the big, techy geniuses. Ok, I digress.)
We toured only one of the campuses at Google. They have about 15,000 employees that work at Google in Mountain View, so you can probably imagine they have a few campuses. And, each campus has a bunch of cafes where you can eat – they even take reservations. They’re pretty swanky “cafes” too (I suppose Google is a multi-billion dollar company). We went to an Indian restaurant, which was kind of cool to do with people from India to explain more about the food and drinks, as well as how to eat some of it. I liked every single thing I tried and have recently declared Indian my favorite cuisine – which will come in handy when I’ll be visiting there (no suitcase of food for this girl). The best part was the food was free. Mansi’s husband decided to treat us to a dessert bar, so we went to another “café” for that.
Oh yeah. And, this is what I wore for the day and my inspiration.
Cardigan: Gap Factory (this season); Tee: Mossimo; Belt: Banana Republic Factory; Jeans: Levi’s; Shoes: Zara (this season)
I wore this outfit on Sunday to go to brunch and then also for the plane ride home. I was sad to leave, but I know we’ll be back soon!
I really want to get a blazer like the one used in the picture, but I suppose a cardigan will do for now.
