top 7 workwear wednesday outfits of 2015

I can’t believe 2015 is coming to an end! In celebration of ending a good year and starting a new one, Justine of the Thrifty Girl’s Guide and I are posting our favorite #workwearwednesday outfits of 2015. Here are my best 7 outfits (as chosen by me):


[L to R: one | two | three | four | five | six | seven ]

I can tell from this year’s workwear wednesday outfits that I’ve been gravitating more toward pants (especially jeans) and tops instead of skirts or dresses. I guess I’m getting kind of casual 🙂 What trend have you noticed in your fashion this year?

I hope you all have a GREAT new year’s and I’ll “see” you in 2016!

workwear wednesday: lady in red

Justine and I are sharing our red looks for this week’s workwear wednesday. You’ll have to excuse my janky selfie, but due to being sick (both me and hubby) and time constraints, this is the only picture I could muster. I also wanted to share my super shiny red manicure. I’ve had gel manicures before but this time was my first time trying some nail art. I have to say, it was definitely not what I was expecting (I was hoping it would look better) but I’m still enjoying the snowflake/star design nonetheless.

Red is a wonderful color, and used to be one of my very favorites. When I went to go pick out my outfit for this week’s post, I was kind of surprised that I have very few red articles of clothing. Most of my clothes are blue and black. So, I decided to go for red dots with this top, which is probably one of my favorite thrifted finds.

I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas already. I’ll admit, because of work, being sick for weeks, and other things, I’ve been completely unprepared this year. I hope all of you are having a great holiday season, no matter what you celebrate. Xoxo

workwear wednesday: statement necklace

I love a good statement necklace. Wearing a classy but pizzazz-less work ensemble? No worries, just add a sparkly statement necklace. Also, I own an embarrassing amount of jewelry. I had to go out and buy a human-sized jewelry armoire to hold it all. And by that, I mean the thing is my size.

Here’s what I wore to work yesterday:

new orleans wedding

Last month, I had the honor of being invited to a lovely wedding in New Orleans. It was my very first time visiting the city and it was such an amazing experience (along with the gorgeous wedding) that I had to share it.

We stayed right outside the French Quarter in an artist’s house, close to great food, live music, plenty of bars, great shops, and more. What I really liked about staying in that area of New Orleans is that we spend the entire 4 days walking around, taking in the sights, sounds, and smells. It’s a truly magical place.

Here are some pictures of my friend Libby and I at the wedding. I decided to go with my trusted Henkaa Iris convertible dress and it was the PERFECT dress to wear to this wedding as the weather was quite warm for November but dipped into cooler digits later on in the day. Iris is a convertible dress with sleeves but can be worn many different ways, including ways that do not have sleeves for the warmer weather. Plus, as with all Henkaa dresses, it was super comfortable and flattering!

Well, that’s it for now. Hope you have a great Monday!
Xo,
Nout
