Week in the Life… Fashion Edition

Hey there!!! How are you all doing?  My week is going great!  This week is a lot less busy than last week, which is a nice change of pace.  My husband is one to have some commitment each night of the week and I am the very opposite.  I like to have most of my nights during the week free from commitments and save them for the weekend when I have more time (and sleep :)).  

I hope you guys don’t get the wrong idea by the title of this post… I am so far from ever being a fashionista.  Most of my wardrobe comes from Target or Old Navy, but I do love popping into cute boutiques when I am with my mom or sister.  I have never loved shopping, but I do enjoy it more when I am with my mom or sister and have some help.  I really don’t shop for clothes often because it’s just not something I do by myself and I hate buying clothes online because they never fit me right (my husband appreciates this about me :)).  

In honor of branching out of my blogging comfort zone and incorporating more unique and different type posts, today I thought I would share some outfits that I regularly wear to work.  When it is chilly out, I love a good pair of slacks or capri pants, but since it has been extremely hot, I have been wearing a lot more dresses and skirts to work.  My work if very relaxed about the dress code, but I try to dress up just a little bit so that I am comfortable, yet a little stylish.  I think taking the time to look presentable is important because it makes me feel my best and I am more productive if I am all ready for the day.  With that said, most of my outfits are very comfortable. 🙂 

I am obsessed with long-sleeve dresses.  I like long-sleeves, which are normally too hot for summer, but if they are on a shorter dress, it is the perfect combination for me.  I can’t remember exactly where I found this, but I will venture to say it is from Target from a few years ago.

It’s super comfortable too!

I love this skirt paired with a solid top.  The skirt is quite a few years old from Forever 21 and my sister gave me this top when we cleaned out her closet last year.

One of my favorite dresses ever.  It is SO comfy and can be casual or dressed up depending on what jacket/sweater and shoes it is paired with.  Pretty sure it is from Target or Old Navy.  I love these Kendra Scott earrings too.  I really like big earrings with a ponytail… it’s a nice way to dress up a simple pony.

I’ve actually worn this dress to a couple weddings.  The material is really stretchy, which I love.  I think it is from White House Black Market.  It is from a few years ago so I am not positive.

I love a good statement necklace to add a little excitement to an outfit.

As you can see, I am pretty simple with my work outfits.  I like to look nice, but not fancy.  I sometimes wear heels, but more commonly I wear nice wedges, flats, or dressy sandals.  I don’t wear a ton of jewelry besides my wedding rings, but I do love some earrings, a bracelet, or a nice necklace to dress up an outfit.  When it comes to work attire, I like to keep it simple, yet cute.  I think it’s important to put effort into the way you present yourself, but it doesn’t have to take a long time or be complicated.  I wash my hair one or twice throughout the work week and supplement with dry shampoo for the rest of the time.  It saves me SO much time (my hair is SO thick), which is awesome during the week.  That means more sleep and time to workout.  🙂 

Thanks for reading today!  I would love to hear about what you wear to work!

Questions:

  1. What is your dress code for work? 
  2. Do you wear a lot of jewelry?
  3. What are your statement pieces of clothing for the work week?

  1. The attire at my company varies from very casual to business professional. Honestly I prefer to dress casually because it is more comfortable. I work as a business analyst and I don’t meet in person with people often. I do make sure to do my hair everyday and I try to look put together but I HATE dresses and skirts during the work week because it either gets too cold at work or I just get uncomfortable having to “sit like a lady”. Do you ever wear jeans to work? I also have to wash my hair everyday or else I would love like a sweaty mess at work with greaseball hair!

    1. My hair is super thick so it literally takes forever to dry so I use a lot of dry shampoo. 🙂 I do wear colored jeans with a nice top, but usually more so in the winter. I can’t do pants with how hot it has been outside lately. I really like dresses as I am usually pretty hot. Dresses are comfy to me and don’t hug my waist like pants do. I am so impressed that you wash your hair every day!! You go girl!
