queen of hearts {workwear wednesday}

If you’ve ever read my blog, you know hot much of a sucker I am for a cute print. So it comes at no surprise that this heart print blouse is one of my favorites- and I got it at Clothes Mentor for a steal!

What you see behind me here is our little vegetable and herb garden. We’ve already started harvesting zucchini and cucumber. Oh so good, there’s nothing like fresh veggies from your garden. I do not have a green thumb though- all this is courtesy of my wonderful husband.

Oh, and I got a haircut!

workwear wednesday: fit and flare

I don’t have much to say other than I love this dress and I love the colors black and white together. As a curvy petite gal, I find that fit and flare dresses accentuate the smallest part of my waist and tend to be very flattering. What do you think of fit and flare dresses?

Add a sleek white blazer and you’ve got a fabulous corporate chic ensemble.

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!

workwear wednesday: keyhole dress

I’ve had this dress for several years and I love it. I was incredibly pleased when I found it at a thrift store for less than $5 (you know how expensive Boden is!). The triple keyhole neckline is one of my favorite details.

There’s really not much else to say about this dress, haha. Here’s what’s been going on in my life this week:

  • Work is crazy.crazy.crazy.busy
  • Hit up an estate sale last weekend and got some vintage goodies for my collection!
  • Getting ready to set up at a flea market this weekend
  • Not much else
  • My mom has gone back home to Bakersfield for a week

Alright, y’all that’s it for me but you don’t want to miss what Justine is wearing for Workwear Wednesday!

lazy chic {workwear wednesday}

This outfit is what I call ‘lazy chic’. Lazy because when I woke up to go to work early this morning, I just wanted something quick and easy to throw on that still made me feel professional and put-together. Sleek black maxi dress plus my tried and true J. Crew field jacket FTW!

What’s happened in the last few weeks:

  • Mom is doing her weekly infusions; she’s having some reactions but seems to be alright.
  • I went to Vegas last week for my first ever marketing conference. I got to spend time with one of my best friends, ate lots of amazing food, and learned a lot. But I was so ready to come home. Vegas is overwhelming!
  • Wes took down our ailing back deck (it was a big one) due to the termite infestation {don’t even get me started}. I’m looking forward to having a nice patio and maybe even a screened-in porch.
  • Spring is everywhere! Our azaleas are blooming and they are so beautiful, I wanted to include them in my pictures.
