lazy chic {workwear wednesday}

This outfit is what I call ‘lazy chic’. Lazy because when I woke up to go to work early this morning, I just wanted something quick and easy to throw on that still made me feel professional and put-together. Sleek black maxi dress plus my tried and true J. Crew field jacket FTW!

What’s happened in the last few weeks:

  • Mom is doing her weekly infusions; she’s having some reactions but seems to be alright.
  • I went to Vegas last week for my first ever marketing conference. I got to spend time with one of my best friends, ate lots of amazing food, and learned a lot. But I was so ready to come home. Vegas is overwhelming!
  • Wes took down our ailing back deck (it was a big one) due to the termite infestation {don’t even get me started}. I’m looking forward to having a nice patio and maybe even a screened-in porch.
  • Spring is everywhere! Our azaleas are blooming and they are so beautiful, I wanted to include them in my pictures.
