On Thursday last week I had a bit of a rush to the head. You see I'm a bit of a fan of Madam Secretary, for Elizabeth 's outfits as well as the storyline, and similarity to my life (yeah, right ) haha. Elizabeth dresses for the office but in a slightly quirky manner, which is the appeal to me. I haven't yet managed to replicate her outfits. Elizabeth 's female sidekick, Nadine, is not one to wear outfits that send my heart racing and my thumbs rummaging through my closet. To me her character dresses a little bit more prim, or preppy, which is not me.
So last week, as we were catching up on the series, I was stunned to find myself taken with a Nadine outfit. In the episode we were watching she wore a raspberry blouse and black skirt. Perfect. (I so want a pink, deep pink, blouse, now, this minute.)
In the meantime, whilst I awaited a deep pink blouse to materialise out of thin air into my life, I picked out my Boden pink cardigan and my Sainsbury's officewear black.
I was pleased with the look for the office. Formal black with a nod to summer brights.
You may see me in the Oval Office yet!
As I walked to the station wearing this outfit I was struck by my shadow (not literally, that would just be plain scary). No, I was struck by the fact that I looked like a Playmobile character on stilts. Nothing miniature about this stretchy individual following me around though. Still, she was gone by nightfall.
