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!

first day of work {pineapples for workwear wednesday}

Today was day 3 at my new job at Red Hat in downtown Raleigh! It’s such an amazing, crazy, wonderful place. I’m completely overwhelmed of course–it’s my first time working in a corporate environment for such a large organization. Also, it’s my first time with such a long commute (and I’ve taken the bus for 2 days already, so that might start playing into my WWW outfit posts).

I know it’s Workwear Wednesday, but I wore this outfit for my first day of work on Monday! I love this pineapple print and wanted to add a bit of quirk to my first outfit.

bright red pants & a new leather tote {workwear wednesday}

Sometimes, bright red is scary. Sometimes bright pants are scary. Put them together and you’ve got yourself a recipe for disaster  fun. Until recently, I was a little apprehensive of putting the brightest color in my outfit anywhere near my bottom.

Fast forward a couple of years, and seeing other bloggers pull them off (Justine has a great pair of red pants) plus gaining a bit more self-confidence, and I’m able to rock my bright red skinny cords with aplomb.

Here, I pair them with a feminine blouse and cardigan in more mellow blue hues. What do you think of bright red pants? Yes or no thanks?

Annnnnd of course I gave myself a little early holiday gift of *yet another* leather purse, this time a beautiful brown leather tote.
