workwear wednesday: floral fun

I love fun prints and florals are no exception, especially during the spring and summer. Whether a fun floral print on a skirt, pants, jacket, or top, floral prints are an easy way to add visual interest to an outfit. I like to pair one floral piece with a solid color or another smaller print (such as thin stripes).

Here I’m wearing a Talbots floral print pencil skirt with a frilly J. Crew tee for Workwear Wednesday!

workwear wednesday: red & navy

Hi friends! I’m trying to get back in the habit of posting a weekly outfit post that I call Workwear Wednesday, with the help of my good friend and fellow blogger Justine of The Thrifty Girl’s Guide.

A little background info: I work at a small-ish tech company that is extremely casual (as I’ve noticed of newer companies – they never have a dress code) so it’s often difficult for me to get dressed up for work all the time when everyone else is wearing jeans and tees. I do have a lot of more formal office clothes though, so I’m taking the weekly Workwear Wednesday post as an opportunity to wear my nicer work outfits.

Here’s what I wore to work yesterday:

workwear wednesday: lemons and a skirt

Hi friends, hope you’re having a good week so far. It’s been a busy week for me at work but a good week nonetheless.

You might know that I love anything with a cute print. So, I was extra happy and excited when I found this super cute Talbots lemon tee at Goodwill, with the tags still on!

the forgotten jacket

You know when you have an article of clothing or a pair of shoes that you love but that’s buried deep in your closet. So deep that you kind of forget about it? Yeah, I have that problem a lot, because let’s face it, I have way too many things in my closet. But one piece in particular that comes to mind is this Talbots Tuileries swing jacket, which I pretty much got obsessed with as soon as it came out, and which I hunted down on sale. Happy with my purchase, somehow this jacket sat in my closet for several years after being worn maybe once. Why? Maybe it wasn’t the most versatile jacket, maybe I have too many jackets (YES), or maybe it was simply forgotten. The beloved yet forgotten jacket comes out of hiding to make an appearance in this OOTD.

pretty stripes + pyrex

I am trying to wear as many summery dresses as I can before the weather takes a turn for fall. Being that I live in NC though, that time might not come until October or it could happen earlier.

Here I am wearing one of my favorite thrift store finds, a Talbots nautical-inspired striped (chevron) dress that the first lady herself wore back in 2011.

I am also standing in front of the majority of my vintage Pyrex collection. Yes, I have a problem.

Oh and it’s hump day already? Whoa.
