Modern Mad Men

Sweater (Loft); Skirt (Limited); Nylons (Nordstrom Rack); Necklace (Macy's)
Heels (Nine West); Sunglasses (Charming Charlie)

Between the nylons, pearls, and sweater tucked into my pencil skirt - I'm feeling very modern day Mad Men.  After getting sucked into that show, I am so inspired by the style... fitted skirts and dresses, cinched in middles, and high waists.  In fact I pretty much want to be Joan Harris... and while I will never have her fabulous hair or curves, I can still put on a pencil skirt and sweater and pretend :)

You are FAR too hard on yourself Heather; stop that!

You are gorgeous and always beautifully put together...maybe Joan Harris would wish she could be you!

I'm clearly excited.

I do think this has a bit of a mad men feel - now all you need is a pen necklace! ;)

I agree that there's a Mad Man vibe to this outfit! For me, it definitely starts with those adorable nylons. I always have loved that style. It feels so vintage to me. You are looking pretty and polished, Heather!


renae said...

Oh Heather! You are far more glamorous than the Madmen gal. Far more! I love the seamed nylons......love them.

Kristina said...

LOVE this! I'm addicted to Mad Men too.. and anything mid-century modern, in fact, I may have mentioned it on my post today! I want to buy anything and everything that reminds me of the 50s and 60s! ;)

Lisa - respect the shoes said...

Your look today is so sleek and clean - and the detailing on the back of the hose is perfect for the outfit!

Jewel Laura said...

You always rock the pencil skirt! Also, those tights are amazing....very Mad Men-esque!

Great ladylike look!


Unknown said...

This is such a perfect outfit for work!! I LOVE the gray tones and colorblocked pattern- it's such a nice combination. Thanks for sharing!


Happiness at Mid Life said...

That such a pretty take on the Mad Men look! The colorblock & tights totally nailed it! I started to watch season 1 of Mad Men on Netflix and never finished the 1st episode - maybe I should it a try again.


dawn said...

perfect lines- you look amazing!! Love the tights too


Ashleigh said...

I love this! Nylons with a seam are usually so skanky any more because women wear them with tattered jean shorts and crop tops. You look elegant and lady like.

Jessica said...

Seamed stockings make everything sexy! I also adore the subtle blocking on your sweater.

Juneli said...

So true, this look reminds me of Mad Men! You look so polished and elegant Heather!
