July Style Sudoku: Outfits 11–14

I wrapped up my July style sudoku this past weekend, and goodness, this one felt like it really flew by compared to my past sudokus (catch the first five outfits here and outfits 6-10 here). The final four outfits are detailed below, and my recap post will be published on Wednesday!

July Style Sudoku: Outfit 11 — Cotton Cashmere Cat Hair

Today was another unexciting day at the office! Since it was going to be the warmest remaining work day of the week, I opted to wear my final skirt outfit. This is typically what I think of when I think of a more “professional” work outfit, so it’d be perfect to wear for a conference or networking event. At first, I wasn’t quite sure that I would like the color combination of the beige blazer with the brown flats in any of my style sudoku outfits, but I don’t think they look bad together. Of course, the true star of the show is miss Rosie. ;)

July Style Sudoku: Outfit 12 — Cotton Cashmere Cat Hair

It always happens that I get to the end of my sudoku and I realize I have to wear a couple of items in a row. It’s probably poor planning on my part, but I think some of it is the nature of the sudoku format. Since I didn’t want to wear my linen blazer two days in a row (I wore it on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday), I decided that my chambray shirt would have to be worn two days in a row. First up was my chambray with this look: a relatively casual work outfit with my straight leg crops, cream cardigan, and navy sandals. It worked, so that’s all I can ask for!

July Style Sudoku: Outfit 13 — Cotton Cashmere Cat Hair

I saved the second monochrome outfit for the last work day of my style sudoku. I’ve been wanting to pair my chambray shirt with my boyfriend jeans, but I couldn’t quite figure out how to wear them together in a relatively subtle way. Enter: the linen blazer…it helps to balance the look (and serve as an extra layer for the aggressive air conditioning). One of my coworkers complimented my outfit and the color palette, saying it was very calming. I have to agree; there is something about light blue and light tan/beige together that is pleasing to the eye.

OUTFIT 14 • Saturday, July 20th

July Style Sudoku: Outfit 14 — Cotton Cashmere Cat Hair

The last day! Korri and I didn’t have anything planned for Saturday, so we spent most of the day at home. We went for a walk by the river in the late afternoon, right when the air was hottest (of course, haha). I wore this entire outfit because my hat shaded me from the sun and I wanted to see how the sandals would feel after a decently long walk. (I normally would wear sneakers.) My feet weren’t killing me by the end, so that’s a good thing! I also didn’t experience any blisters. Woo!

I ended up changing into my navy sandals, losing the hat, and adding my navy Lilly Pulitzer sweater (not in the sudoku) for a walk to the stadium to stand outside the Garth Brooks concert. We tried to get tickets but the ticket office was long closed (I wasn’t surprised since Garth was on stage by the time we got there). I changed my outfit just in case we had been able to get in. His stage was set “in the round” with screens on all sides, and you could see them from outside the stadium, so we joined a couple hundred people outside and watched/listened. It was a great show! ;)
