PCT: Working the Phones

For most campaign volunteers, any time not spent knocking on doors is set aside for making voter calls.  And while phoning hundreds of average Americans (hopefully, not during their dinner hour) is a good way to build support, the dress code for such work is decidedly casual.  (In ’08, my volunteers wore pajamas.) 

What?  It’s jeans and a sweatshirt.  I don’t care what you say, that’s casual.

1.  Cascade Sweatshirt (Alloy, $25)

2.  Raisin Sequin Silk Tee (J.Crew, $148)

3.  Citizens of Humanity Ingrid Flare (Revolve, $149)

I’m telling you, flare jeans are hot this season.  I also really love the wash on this pair — not too light, not too dark.

4.  Grey Suede Kyro Flat (Steve Madden, $60)

5.  Silver Marcasite Studs (Sears, $20)

There’s plenty of sparkle on the t-shirt, so it’s best to keep the jewelry minimal.

    Love the flats, and I'm happy that flare-leg jeans are back (I'll take boot-cut, too). A slightly flared leg opening is so much more flattering on most women than skinny jeans. Don't get me wrong, skinny jeans have their time and place, and are always great for tucking into boots, but there are just some women/girls who should NOT ever wear anything with “skinny” in the title.

    This may be my favorite outfit you've done in the recent past. I love the new posting format too.

    Have you thought about using Polyvore for an easier and linking-friendly collage?

    The House blocks the polyvore widget, so 1/3 of the readers wouldn't be able to see it.
