Outfits of the Week

Over on my Instagram, I’ve been taking daily outfit photos and sharing them in my stories. I wanted to start sharing what I wear on a daily basis. You know an authentic outfit of the day, I even take them as a mirror pic. Just to give you all an idea of what my daily lifestyle is, I work a corporate job, in marketing and I typically dress in business casual. I should also say, these outfits are over a few weeks. My company offers working from home and on those days I don’t get dressed.

One of my favorite looks is to wear all black and to add a pop of color. It makes me feel chic and very well put together. 

This look was from a Friday. Typically, I try to go for a more casual look on Friday. I found this shirt at TJ Maxx, I have to say I loved it, then I just threw a lavender sweater for warmth. My office is always so cold.

This may be from one of those work from home days. Sometimes I do get dressed and I like to wear cute sweats to run errands. A trick I have is to put on a denim jacket to bring the look together. 

This look was back when it was still a little chilly out. Dresses, tend to be my favorite this to just throw on in the mornings. Being honest most days I am running late, dresses always work because you will look put together and hopefully it will be easy to get out the door as fast as possible. 

I’m sure this look was from a Friday as well. I really like to wear chambray shirts on Fridays. I am not a fan of wearing jeans to work, so I opt for denim dresses or shirts.

So, those are a few outfits in a nutshell, what do you think? Again check out my Instagram to see more of my daily life and all the fun that goes on over there.

Sequins Tee and a Pencil Skirt

Sometimes we just need to add some sparkle to our lives. I have been loving this sequins tee. It is amazing with jeans, it would look super cute with a pair of joggers.

Today, I styled this tee shirt with one of my favorite pencil skirts. I love a neutral outfit (they are actually my favorite outfits) but I love to add a pop of color. I’ve had these boots for sometime. They are no longer available, but I will link some similar booties here.

Pro tip: If  you find you wear a lot of t-shirts opt for a tee that has some interest in it. In stead of just wearing a typical grey shirt find some with pizzazz.

Hi Friends,

Have you noticed anything about my background in the last couple of posts? You guessed it.  Lately, I have been taking my outfit photos inside. Guys, it has been so cold here. I think within the last month there were two days that were not below freezing. Hence, the indoor outfit photos. I really miss my outdoor photos and I can’t wait until I can get back outside again.

This dress, I love it. I was hunting through, TJ Maxx and Nordstrom Rack looking for this dress in black and I found it. I already own this dress in navy — clearly I love it. I’ve worn  it in this blog post as well as this post. I can’t express to you how perfect they are for the office. You can wear it with a cardigan, I love wearing button up shirts under it, oh and don’t forget blazers, they always work.

What is one of your favorite items to wear in the office?

I have been wanting to work out for about a week now! I have been sick back to back and it kicked my butt, knocking me off my game. Tomorrow I should have time to go to they gym and I am going to go take a run which I am excited about it.

You may think I live in Old Navy, I do, but only because they have great things that are always on sale. I found this workout top in the spring for under $10. It is very comfortable, I love how it has a loose fit. I love wearing all back especially going to the gym. It makes working out chic.

Happy Tuesday Friends,

I am so happy that Independence Day is just next week! I love love love July 4th. Something about it just gets me so excited. Every year and it never fails. I purchased this skirt last year and never got around to wearing it. Don’t judge me, you know you do it too. I am getting it out to you this summer just in time for July 4th. I don’t plan on taking much leave, but I still have to be festive around the office. Here is a look I may or may not have already planned to wear Monday the 3rd. 🙂

Confidence in Black

Over the years I have been drawn to color –  the brighter the better. One of my favorite things to do Is mixing contrasting colors together. I get a lot of comments that they  would never have thought to wear that together (I take that as a compliment!).  However, in the past year or two, I have been loving more neutral colors. I find all black to be the opitaimity of chic! We can even see this throughout the years. One movie most fashionistas love, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” when she wore that amazing black dress and pearls. I do, however, consider myself a fashionista, but I actually thought that movie was boring.  I watch it for the fashions.

With black, by changing the accessories, you can create so many outfits that give you so many looks. You can have a sporty look when you wear an outfit with sneakers, then with the same outfit have an evening look with jewelry and heels (flats for me tho!).  I just love how versatile one color can be.

You can even transition it throughout the seasons. I love a simple black t-shirt in the spring and summer. A black turtleneck in the fall and winter has been a staple in my wardrobe forever!

Happy Friday Friends!

This week has been a crazy busy week. I am sure you all noticed I had a difficult time posting this week. Just know, I am here today with an outfit that would be perfect if you work in an office setting.

In the winter I wear a lot of dresses and skirts, which means I live in tights and stockings. It is always fun to wear colored tights for style and to keep you warm. In my opinion it just add a element of fun to an outfit.

I found this jacket a few years back at Target but you can find the current season here. The plaid shirt is from the Gap (similar here) and my skirt is thrifted, but is  J Crew . I usually get my tights from Target which has an amazing selection of colors and prints.

Work Work Work…

Happy Tuesday!

I am sure many of you have a job where you have to wear business type clothes. I wanted to share with you all how I typically dress for work. Fair warning, I am being honest. img_8169_fotorimg_8121_fotorimg_8122_fotorimg_8125_fotorimg_8181_fotor

First moment of honesty… I don’t typically wear heels to work. I am sure I have made mention here before I have had a problem with my foot in the past and I tend to be more comfortable running around in heels. Unfortunately, it is not the most flattering in my opinion. I was going to wear them for this shoot, but I decided to keep it honest.

I like to shop at TJ Maxx because they have a lot of stylish options to wear to work. I found this dress in a recent trip. I also found some other items that I will be sharing in another post.

Where do you all shop when looking for work clothes? I need more options, if any of you have ever shopped TJ Maxx then you know it can be hit or miss.

 

 

Boots and a Blazer

img_6093_fotorimg_6084_fotorimg_6118_fotorimg_6114_fotor

So let’s talk about this weather… it is so cold here! During this entire shoot I had to take some moments and warm up in my car.  Many of you know I work a 9-5, most day I am in outfits like these. Typically for work, I like to wear an easy dress and a blazer. I try to be as comfortable as possible, because I am running around all day and I get up too early to care about much.
