Last week I was busy doing all the next rollout preview posts but I am still doing Project 333 and I thought I will do an update on the few OOTD I have worn recently, in no particular order.
I bought this striped navy boat neck from Banana Republic in January for $25 and I am very happy with it. It is form their Heritage collection and more substantial that my J.Crew vintage bateau t-shirt. It has long sleeves, longer length and more defined waist. I has some spandex in it which is good for keeping its shape but it does make it more clingy and prone to show any lumps and bumps. I have worn it HERE before, scroll to the bottom to see the outfit.

Another one of my favorites is my wool double serge pencil skirt in Ochre. You have seen it HERE before, and it truly is one of most versatile pieces that goes with about everything. Here I paired it with Brora lace thermal and Jeffrey Campbell shoes (hurray for Norsdstrom Rack and their awesome coupons and promotions, they were under $20!). The shoes have zipper in the back and you slide your feet in, they are also lined in leather.

Brora thermals can be quite sheer, since they are meant to be an underwear. But they are so pretty, I can not resist to wear them standalone with perfect fit tank underneath. I love the lace details, such a nice feminine touch. I bought five of them last year on super sale in January, they were about $25 each and worth every penny.

Below is the outfit I worn for Valentine's Day to the office. Bear in mind that my office is very flexible and diverse as far as the dress code, most people do not wear sweats, jeans are usually Fridays only and nobody wears suit and ties but everything in between is good to go. I love those perfect fit ribbon henleys, they don't get much exposure in blogosphere but they are perfect casual wear. This one is in maraschino cherry which is a rare shade of red I can actually wear.

This is another outfit with black double serge pencil skirt and again, my cheap Gap cardigan, this time in black. The skirt is from 2007 and I always say they had even better fit then, with fully fashioned waistband. My boots are also older, I think 2008 Glenbrae? in black. I am wearing a last year tank top and J.Crew pearls which are my fav piece of jewelry. I am cheating a little on Project 333 here because I did not count the tank since I consider it an undergarment. I would not remove the sweater so this was my rationale, I also use it with my camel colored v-neck.

This is my casual Friday outfit, featuring my True Religion jeans and J.Crew striped waffle thermal, another super cheap treat that costed me $14 on sale. Those thermal actually work for me and I love them. I know may taller, skinnier JCA hated the shrunken fit but they are perfect on me because I have proportionally shorter arms and I am wearing a Medium.
My shoes are patent Stuart Weitzman pumps and my necklace us from Ann Taylor. I usually like to wear nice shoes and some jewelry when I am wearing jeans to the office. A little trick I have with multi strand the necklace: this is actually a shorter choker length and I make it longer by simply hanging it around my neck with one of the strands.

That's all folks. I am getting ready to swap some of my 333 clothes and I am debating what to swap. I think I will swap some of my skirts and dresses and maybe a pair of pants. You can peak into what I currently have in my closet HERE.
What clothes do you think you would you swap if you were doing Project 333?
What was your favorite from my OOTDs? Have you shopped the President's Day sales?
Do you have any of the cheap finds like my GAP cardigans that you wear to death?
Please share, it is only fun when you are around!!!
