Because I'm bored and a few of you asked...

I know that I should be thankful that I work for a company that gives so much to it's staff and sales people by sending us on a luxurious cruise, and I am.  But honestly these trips are not fun, it's work and I have to be "ON" at all times and the 4-5 day trips are hard enough, but at least we've never been stuck on a boat together before.  I have gone on a 4 day cruise before with my BFF, by day TWO I had enough of the boat (and the BFF) and barely made it to the end without jumping overboard.  SEVEN DAYS and SEVEN NIGHTS is a LONG TIME.  I was happy to have learned this week that I will have both internet and cell phone access during this time so it is possible that I might surprise myself and not kill anyone.  Lucky you, I am sure I will be spending an inordinate amount of time blogging about the great adventure...

So a few of you asked about the outfit for the SHOES...  Actually there wasn't an outfit, but a really cute shirt that I found at Target of all places:

blue shirt

My original thought was to get a pair of black slacks to wear with this shirt but then I discovered the SHOES, and they matched so well but had brown in them, not black, that I am rethinking this and now need white pants.  See how well these match:

Matchy 

So before going shopping again, I went through my closet to see what all I had to take on the cruise and I discovered that the SHOES also match these outfits:

Brown Strapless Dress

brown dress

and dress bought and never worn...

wild dress

wild dress 2

So since I am bored I thought I'd also share one of my 'formal' dresses that I am actually really impressed with, mainly because I got it for $49!  The extremely cute and MATCHING shoes cost more than that I am ashamed to say...

This dress is a little bit out of my comfort zone and I will have to pull out the spanx, but the matching shoes were too cool to pass up.

See what boredom does for me?

Wow that's alot of things to match those shoes! You so need to take me shopping!!

Jenn said...

Those shoes are awesome and will look great with all those outfits! I also like the formal dress. But I'm with you--I would not want to have to be "On" all that time. Last time I was on a long trip with people from work, one day I had to feign illness just to get a break! ;-)

Love the outfits Kat!! You are gonna be one hot lady....even if you are working.

Can't wait to see updates when you are on the trip.

I need to see the black dress on. I'm not getting the thingy on the top. Maybe you should do this every week. I like looking in other peeps closets.

Pat said...

Ok,being bored really got your talents going didn't it? Love the outfits. Like Jane be sure and take a picture in the black dress , love it. You have a good Sunday and I guess since you have 4 men in your life I take it you will be watching Super Bowl? Hugs, Pat

You're going to be the best dressed lady there, that's for sure!

So where does this said cruise go to? Does hubby get to go or are you alone on it? Do you think it's possible that maybe a blogger friend could accidently show up on this said cruise and well, keep you company for lack of a better word? What if you miss your flight causing you to miss the cruise. OOPS! Haha!

A cruise does sound great, but if I was forced to spend that long with my employees I would surely drink rat poison before the trip was over!

I don't do heels....but I LOVE those ones!!!

Dory said...

Oh Kat, I so hope you don't end up throwing yourself (or a coworker!) overboard... just surf the net when you get tired of all the cruising-shenanigans.

I hope you have a fabulous time, despite your trepidation.

Well, windows live "outed" me and I am mad as a hornet. I will probably be coming over here...if I can figure this place out. Hubby is not happy and is wanting me to close out my other blog. I probably will, but will let you know.

Hope your meeting went well today and I am bummed we didn't get together!! We will one of these days soon!

Hugs!
