Casual Tuesday

After a weekend of travel and bundling up, I tried to put a little effort into my outfit today – even though there was only 2 of us in the office for most of the day – with the grey weather and the next two days gearing up to be sleet and snow and rain and more snow, I decided it was time to bring a little brightness to my wardrobe.

I took advantage of the tax free shopping in Vermont as well as the spring line at Old Navy to get some springy looking clothes. I figure if I will it to be spring it will be right? Maybe?

 

Casual Tuesday

The sweater is a little more red than pink in that picture but…whatever.

Pants – Old Navy| T-shirt – JCrew (similar) | necklace – JCrew (similar) | Cardigan – Old Navy | Flats – Tory Burch

 I think I need more in this poppy/coral color. I’ll be revisiting Old Navy soon. They had some really cute spring finds. Kind of hard to shop for spring when you’re about to get 6″ of snow and nearly slip out trying to get into your car because of all the stupid ice.

What did the outfit look like on me?

Pardon my selfie-ing.

What do you wear for casual days at work?

Fashionable Friday

So i’m not really a fashion blogger, but lately I’ve been aspiring to show off a bit more of my “style” in my pitch to be more of a lifestyle blogger.

It’s going to take some time because well…working mom…with not a lot of time (or energy?) to  model beautiful outfit posts and then post them. Working mom blogger problems. Thats a bigger issue because working moms who blog regularly? I don’t know how they do it. I mean…I wrote half of this post while catching up on The Voice after a toddler dinner time meltdown, waiting for hubs to get home. Gifts to wrap, floors to vacuum, bathrooms to clean, trash to take out and I’m blogging but feel like I shouldn’t be.

I digress.

Yesterday (hi scheduled post. what of it.) I took a couple hours off in the morning to hit up my semi-annual dentist appointment. Before my mid morning appointment, I hit up Pure Barre before my dentist appointment, and then headed into the office. Thankfully, I work in a casual work environment and didn’t have any client meetings, so I opted for the “leggings as pants” look. Don’t judge me.

Either way, it was comfortable and had….a touch of class. Maybe. I don’t know statement necklaces and JCrew sweaters class anything up right? And those boots? I picked them up last weekend in Columbia and I love love LOVE them. Comfortable, fashionable and versatile. Love them.

Leggings (similar)  | Boots | Tank | Necklace | Sweater

The key? Dry shampoo, deodorant, and make up before I left Pure Barre – although thinking about it as I type I don’t remember if I actually put make up on. Maybe mascara? Maybeee??

My trick – because i pull similar looks off often on days without meetings – nice shoes. Nice sweater. Layering tanks.  I’ve also pulled this look off with chambray shirts, flannel shirts…

I’ll try to get some pictures this weekend to do the whole outfit modeling thing. (Read: I’m super insecure with my body right meow and don’t want to take pictures because I haven’t been working out as much. Real Life with Working Moms without enough time)
