Scarf Weather

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

My full time job is a system engineer and I am on a predominantly male team. Out of the 45 people on my team, 5 of us are girls. This means that, for the most part, my coworkers don't understand what us girls are wearing. One day I was wearing a green bubble necklace and a coworker told me he liked that "green thing on my neck". Now, he was complimenting me so his intentions were good... but did he really not know what a necklace was!?

Lately, one of the guys has been "yelling" at all of us girls for wearing scarves. He says "it's not cold enough out yet for those!" (Doesn't he know scarves are a fall staple!?) Well, it was 50 degrees out this morning so I think it's officially scarf weather!


I'm not trying to say that all of the men I work with are like this; it's just a good majority of them. They're harmless... but today when I got dressed I was like "Yes! I can finally wear my scarf without being ridiculed." :)




//Express earrings/ Express scarf/ Express bracelet/ Old Navy top/ Forever 21 jeans/ Express belt/ DSW boots/ Marc Jacobs tote//

P.S. is anybody out there watching The Blacklist!? It is on NBC after The Voice and is so good. None of my IRL friends are watching it, so I need someone to obsess over it with!

I would love it if you would follow me on GFC or BlogLovin'!

  12. you always look so polished! whenever i attempt that, i look like i'm wearing a potato sack which is why i always relegate myself to wearing workout gear (or as close to it)!

  14. Hi there, fellow KC friend! :) Glad you found me!

    Aw, your poor male co-workers- have they no sense of fashion?! Probably not, as is the case with most boys. :) I love scarves, and feel like you can wear 'em all year long (as long as you're not trying to wear wool in the summer!), so work what you've got.

    Love the classic stripes and tall boots- perfect fall outfit!

    Keep in touch!

  29. Ahaha I know what you mean because I work in a male environment too: when I wear foulards tied on the side they ask me if I have a sore throat! Be patient, they'll learn!

  30. I am so ready for scarves!! It is still in the high 60s, low 70s in the mornings here, so I just can't do it yet. But I am hoping soon! You look adorable. Love the stripes and the red scarf! I realize men are fashion challenged, but green thing around your neck? Seriously? That is just sad.
    Oh, and I am watching the Blacklist!! I haven't seen the last two episodes, but I have them DVRed and am going to watch them this week. I will happily obsessed over it with you

  32. Ok! A) My cousin is a systems engineer also and the female's I've seen him working with have no fashion taste! So this is nice to see you rockin your style! and B) I LOVE The Blacklist! I could go on and on, but that would require a whole separate blogpost!

  33. HA! I work in a primarily female office (and most of my clients are women too), so I find that comment your co-worker made hilarious. I'd take it as a compliment for sure :P

  34. The red scarf adds the perfect dose of color to your outfit! I wear scarves year round. Good on you for working in a male dominated field and still being stylish :)

  35. what can you do? I think men just like to pretend to be ignorant about fashion. I'm sure they all know what a necklace is!

    and scarfs are so great for adding a bit of color and visual interest to a look. it's definitely cold enough for them!
