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.

little black dress {workwear wednesday}

Well, life and work has been so hectic and stressful that I can barely keep up with my blog. Plus look at my eyes in this picture…I look TIRED. Y’all, I love my new job but damn…I am worn out.

Anyway, I am SO IN LOVE with this amazing Leota dress. The fabric is so stretchy but at the same time thick and luxurious. I am a huge fan of the LBD– especially one with a fit and flare shape!

workwear wednesday in monochrome!

Hi friends! Today’s workwear wednesday theme is monochrome or all one color. You can take that so many ways but I kind of went the safe (and possibly slightly boring) way and wore all black. I really love wearing black though, and I’m doing as much of it as possible while it’s cold, because once summer comes around, it’ll be too hot.

Check out Justine’s blog for her take on monochrome.

cocktail attire {thrift style thursday}

Although I’ve never actually worn it out, this is one of my favorite thrifted items. It’s a lovely Trina Turk dress, and I found it at Goodwill for $4.59. I imagine it’s the perfect cocktail dress.

The main reason for this blog post is to show off my new vintage St. John cardigan that I thrifted last month.

When hubby took the photos and I uploaded them to my laptop, I realized that the flash caused my bra to show through my black dress. Oh well. You live and you learn. I started to try and photoshop the photos but they looked kinda weird. I don’t have the PS skills to pull that off successfully…

Well, that’s it. It’s been a really busy week at work and as usual I’m stressed. Hope you’re all having a great hump day!
