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.

neon sweater (probably the last sweater of the season!)

For this week’s Workwear Wednesday outfit, I give you what will most likely be the last sweater that I wear for the season. Spring’s here in North Carolina, and that means thunderstorms, yellow pollen covering everything, and impending heat!

What I love about this combination is that it’s unapologetically bright – which is kind of how I roll. To me this says “I know I have to wear a sweater because I’m cold, but I’m going to wear summer colors dammit.”

What do you think of neon for late winter/early spring?

pretty in pink {a workwear wednesday post}

I am a huge fan of the color pink. I can wear pink almost every day, given the chance. I will tell you a little secret though – light pinks do not work well with my complexion.

Like this blouse here, I was super obsessed with the style, so I overlooked the color. I have a soft spot for tops with tie necks! So here I’ve worn the lighter pink with a bright pink in the hopes of making it work, I hope it does 🙂

Do you have that one article of clothing that may not be the right color but that you can’t resist?

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!
