Work Week Chic

Hi guys! I love dressing up during the week because it just adds a little oomph to my work motivation and environment, puts me in a good mood, and makes me feel good inside. And of course it gives me a chance to take some amazing selfies. Here are a few of my work week outfit highlights from this week:

I love a good set of fall colors to spruce up the day experimenting with color palettes so I love playing with bolds, prints, and solids as well as various textures.

Ruffled top: Not sure where I got this but it was a gift from my sister a little while ago and I just love pieces that you can dress up or down.

Jacket: NY and CO about 5 years ago. I love that it’s structured and I can mix and match it with so many pieces and that it has held up so well over the years.

Pants: Bebe about a year ago. I love the color and how fun these pants are. They are super comfy and they add a pop of color and sophistication to whatever I pair it with it.

Shoes: Bloomingdales. com. These are Vince Camuto and they are so fun, girly, and fabulous and for the most part very comfortable.

Accessories: A mixture of Alex and Ani, Bourbon and Boweties, and a wonderful charm bracelet I inherited from my grandmother.

Dress: I actually just got this dress not too long ago from one of my favorite boutiques, Touch Dolls. I absolutely love how fabulous and sophisiticated, affordable, and fun their pieces are. This houndstooth dress is versatile enough to go from day to night and is meant to be worn off the shoulder but since I was going into work I pulled the shoulders up and made it work. It’s definitely a flattering piece for any shape.

Shoes: Michael Kors pumps with gold metal studs that I bought from Dillards about 3 years ago on clearance. One of my favorite pairs of heels.

Accessories: A collection of pieces from Alex and Ani, Bourbon and Boweties, and a braclelet that I inherited from my grandmother.

OOTD: Flowy skirts and structured tops

You know how you have a crazy week but you still have joy? It’s been one of those weeks for me but I can honestly say beyond just internal joy  and peace it’s the little things that have really made me sing this week. Those things include flowy skirts and structured tops. Both of these OOTDs are from earlier this week but I love how mixing colors and prints just puts you in a good place (plus the right cup of coffee and productivity) Eeek! I over love a good mix of patterns or prints with bold colors or fun shoes. Oh and ya’ll please excuse my mirror, it needs a cleaning but it’s been THAT kind of week. LOL.

OOTD #1

Details

Blue stripe button down: Touch Dolls boutique { Touchdolls.com}  The fit is great and runs a little roomy and I ordered some other items from there that I absolutely am in LOVE with.

Red High Waist Skater Skirt: Choies.com (I love this skirt because it’s so versatile and I can wear this to work,  church, and pretty much anywhere else and can be dressed up or down and has the right amount of sophistication but comfort) I commonly look for pieces that go well with multiple things or can give me different looks so I am not having to update my wardrobe all the time. Did I mention it has pockets? Yay!

Gray ruched pumps: Jessica Simpson (DSW I think #recoveringshopaholicprobs) The detailing in these shoes is EVERYTHING! I love that they have a great height (just about 3 1/2 inches I believe) to give me that extra boost of confidence for anything I face during my day and they are just subtle enough to be worn in the office but dressed up for after work festivities.

OOTD 2

Red fitted turtleneck body con top: Meow and Barks Boutique  This top just gives any outfit or pairing the perfect pop of color and splash of fun that any fashionista is always searching for.

White contrast polka dot print maxi skirt: Choies.com I probably stalked (YES STALKED) this skirt for a good little while before I actually caved in and bought it. What I really love about this skirt, is that as the wearer it gives you such a regal feel especially when you dress it up with your favorite boots or pumps. And it truly is perfect for any occasion. Unless that occasion involves running or vigorous running. LOL.

You can probably barely see the ends of my boots peeking out (we caught a few days of cold weather so I got super excited and decided to bust out my boots) so I will save my review and details of them until a later date where you can get a better look.

Don’t be afraid to experiment with different colors, prints, etc. and let your fashionista flag fly loud and proud! Create a style all your own and strut your stuff with confidence!
