monochrome {a workwear wednesday post}

I wake up and it’s dark, I get home from work and it’s dark, it’s been cold and gloomy. While I welcome a break from the summer, I find myself cold and tired. Enter an all black monochrome outfit — as black as my heart (well not really, but I really need some more sunlight in my life).

But you really can’t go wrong with black. It’s stylish, classic, and matches pretty much anything. Plus nobody can tell if you spill coffee on your dress (true story).

out of my comfort zone

I bought this dress a few months ago and even though I liked it, I’ve been too self-conscious to wear it. It’s too tight. It’s too “edgy.” Is it even my style?

What drew me to this dress to begin was was the incredibly soft cotton material, so I decided to go for it, knowing that at the very least, I’d be quite comfortable. I went a bit out of my comfort zone, but I was comfortable AND sweet hubby said I looked wonderful (and that’s quite a complement).

Dia&co. is  encouraging folks to step out of their comfort zones with their Try-Day-Friday initiative, and today I’ve joined the fun 🙂

boots & tights {finally!}

It’s Workwear Wednesday again and I am happy to report that the weather in North Carolina has finally decided it’s fall. Today is the first day I wore boots and tights this season, and I’m pretty excited about it.

What are you plans for fall? Mine are enjoy the amazing weather, drink lots of coffee, tea, and hot cocoa, and cook!

very vintage workwear wednesday

What a week, y’all. Summer is most definitely not over (it’s been HOT). Work has been pure chaos. But, I got new glasses and I wore my new vintage-inspired Lazybones dress and I felt super cute at work. Sorry for janky photos; these were taken after an 11 hour work-day and I was beat:)

It looks like Justine’s been battling the heat this week too, go check out her Workwear Wednesday post!

twinning for workwear wednesday

It’s always a hoot when you get to work and realize that you’re unintentionally twinning with a coworker. My lovely friend Sarah and I had to document this lovely coincidence where I wore a purple dress with a cutout and a black jacket and she wore a black dress with a cutout and a purple scarf 😉
