workwear wednesday: from day to night

Workwear-Wednesday---Day-to-NightHave you ever had to rush out after a long day at the office to go meet some friends for dinner and drinks or meet your honey at an event? If you have, then you know how annoying it is to have to either detour home for a complete wardrobe change or pack clothes to change at the office. My thought about this is with very minor changes, you can take an office ensemble to night time outfit in no time and with minimal effort.

In my example, I take my button-down shirt, vest, and skinny jeans and add a few accessories (and shoes) and let down my hair to turn it into something cute for going out to dinner or drinks.

workwear wednesday

Hi friends,

I’ve decided I needed to bring back my weekly work wear series to help me get back in the rhythm of blogging. Let me know if you’d like to join!

This post has been a long time coming. This is what I wore on my first day at my new job at TransLoc. I absolutely love dressing business casual and being extra comfortable but still being sassy and chic.

Hope you like my outfit. What did you wear today?

chevron & olive green, a #workwearwednesay post!

Hi friends! Happy Wednesday. I’m finally back to blogging more (hopefully). A lot has happened in the past few weeks:

1. I had my arm procedure and 2 subsequent weeks off work (it was nice to get a chance to relax)
2. I turned 30. WOW, I can’t believe that time has come. I’m feeling somewhat bummed but somewhat excited. It’s a strange feeling.
3. I returned back to work, although part time for a few weeks (doctor’s orders!).
4. I did A LOT of thrifting with my mother-in-law during my off time, because not being able to drive and being home alone is boring! So of course my January budget has been blown.
5. I finished reading a book!!!! I had hoped to read 3 but actually finishing one is good; I’m a habitual non-book-finisher. BTW the book I read is Laura Shapiro’s Something From The Oven: Reinventing Dinner in 1950s America. It’s quite good!

Ok, now let’s discuss the good stuff, my workwear Wednesday outfit:

hello, fall

I can’t believe it’s almost fall here in NC. It has been a strange summer – much cooler than usual (but still just as humid and rainy). I am really excited about fall though – the beautiful fall colors, the cooler weather, apples, pumpkins, and of course – long sleeves, scarves, and boots.

Here’s what I wore the other day: a long-sleeved blouse, my leopard scarf, skinny jeans, and my favorite booties.

I hope you are all enjoying the late summer/early fall weather. What’s your favorite thing about fall???

glamorous gothic {a thrift style sunday post}

So I totally forgot to post this on Thursday. My bad, I guess life and work got in the way (as usual). This week’s theme was gothically gorgeous. I really didn’t know what that meant but I thought maybe wearing the color black and adding a little office chic to the outfit would work. Plus I wore heels for the first time in forever, yay! So here’s what I came up with:



Outfit Details:
Top: White House Black Market, old
Pants: Lands End Canvas, old
Shoes: Cole Haan peep toe slingbacks, thrifted $10
Necklace: thrifted, $10
Cuff: Swarvoski

Ok well that’s it! I hope you like my take on glamorous, gothically gorgeous!
