embroidered tunic {workwear wednesday}

My lovely mother got this tunic for herself when she was in Mexico last year. Little did she know that her one and only daughter would lust after it with such gumption that she would have to give it to her. Sorry, mom, but I.freakin.love.this.tunic!

The mom story continues with these awesome Beija Flor jeans, which my mom got me last weekend as part of our ongoing tradition of mom-buying-daughter-yearly-Beija-Flor-jeans. Thanks, mom!

skirt, blouse, cardigan {workwear wednesday}

Y’all, it has been raining non-stop for 4 days! It’s so gloomy and doomy (and so muddy) that we couldn’t take pictures outside. We even had a tornado watch today. Oh, North Carolina!

I present to you…one of my favorite outfit combinations: skirt + blouse + cardigan (or jacket). There is no easier way to pull together an outfit and feel like a fancy career woman! Hah!

lemonade {workwear wednesday}

This week has been another super hectic week at work with so many projects all going on at once and nothing seems to be moving toward completion. But, I absolutely love my job and have to peel myself away from it most of the time. And my mom is still undergoing her cancer treatments, and they’ve been making her really tired, but we’re keeping our spirits up.

As for the weather, today was probably the first really hot day of the year, topping out at 90 degrees. I think this fun lemon-print skirt is the perfect warm weather companion. And yes, I’ve been drinking a lot of lemonade too.

Definitely go check out what Justine is wearing for Workwear Wednesday, because I guarantee it’s super cute.

sassy spring dress {a workwear wednesday post}

Okay, so you don’t usually think of a little black dress (LBD) as being a spring dress. But the weather in my neck of North Carolina has been so lovely, I decided to break out my new BR dress to work today. And it worked perfectly because the dress is made of stretchy cotton. Only downside is it does wrinkle fairly easily.

I have to admit, the fun sleeves on this dress make me feel like a super hero or something? I don’t now. They’re fun. One interesting thing about this BR sheath dress {note: affiliate link} is that it does not look particularly special at all on their website or even in person. I actually went into a Banana Republic store to exchange a dress I had bought for another size, and the lovely associates ended up bringing me a bunch of different things to try on and this dress made feel so sassy when I put it on that I ended up buying it.
