Pink & Camel:

Oooh it’s a Friday isn’t it! I shouldn’t be so excited, I go back to work next week! 😝 Today’s look is another classic work outfit. I’m pretty sure I almost need some black tights with this outfit considering how chilly it’s gotten over night lately! But, tights or no tights – either works!

My skirt is wool, so a little warmer, but is lined nicely. The rest of my outfit is old, but I’ll link similar items below. I really liked lightening up the camel a bit with the pink hue. However, you can wear about every color of the rainbow with this skirt – not to mention a ton of print options!

My skirt fits TTS. I’m wearing my normal size 6. It does fit a little higher on the waist. Since I’m shorter and wear flats to work, it really fits me like a regular skirt and I wouldn’t feel the need for tights on warmer days. It still passes the hand and “coat” test required for us. 🙃

*size tip: I’m 5’2″ and ~130 lbs. I normally wear an XS/S on top and 28/6P on bottom.

Christmas Work Look:

Another flatlay come to life today! I actually had a couple of requests for a try on photo, and it was such a fun Christmas outfit I couldn’t resist! This is honestly one of those outfits you only wear this time of year. It’s almost little too bright and cheery for myself ha! But perfect to bring out the holiday spirit and *sparkle*. And as stated in my previous flatlay post, you could always switch out the red skirt for a blue skirt, or even a neutral like black or camel — or keep the red skirt and wear a more neutral shoe color.

Top, skirt, and flats all fit TTS.

size tip: I’m 5’2″, ~130 lb. and usually wear size XS/S on top and size 28/6P on bottom.

Holiday Work Outfit:

Hi guys! Excited to share some new outfits on the blog this week, but we’re doing it throwback style with indoor photos! I stopped taking photos like this awhile back because of the lighting in our new house, but ahh you know what – you do what you gotta do!

I fell in love with this ruffle back top. It’s a new arrival from Cyber Monday and I ordered it right away – so happy I did! The material is called “crepe” which basically means polyester — and you know sometimes poly is alright, and sometimes not alright lol! Thankfully this poly is really good. The material is thicker, so good for winter and a base layer, and not flimsy. Fits tts (I’m wearing a size small). Also has some stretch. Comes in 3 colors (red, white, black).

Work Look: Floral Blouse

Ever since my workplace switched our dress code out to “casual” several months ago I’ve been all over the jean train and trying to make it as a casual blogger. Occasionally you’ll see me wear a skirt still, but mostly jeans. Jeans of ever color, maybe some chinos, but pretty casual none the less. I’m not gonna lie though – I’m getting a little bored with it! Work is busy, I’m on my feet literally running some days from one side of the pharmacy to the other (so jeans are better… always haha), but I do miss a good fun professional-esque work outfit.

So for today’s outfit post, I pulled out an old pair of work pants and styled them with this awesome new silky blouse and felt really good about it! This blouse has all the colors also. I saw it in store and fell in love. I paired it with pink pants, but it’s has blues, and grays, and pinks, and purples, and browns lol – you name it! It’s a beautiful blend of color.

I’m unconvinced also that at some point my work will take it all back and say “no more jeans”, so I hold on tightly to my favorite pants. I sadly listed most of my pencil skirts on Poshmark, but I know they won’t all sell – and I kept my favorites just in case. 😁

Dressing Up Casual

The last time I styled this henley pullover was with black jeans and peep toe booties. I thought about putting together another ‘flatlay come to life’ post, but thought it would be fun to dress the henley up a little differently. It’s a very casual sweater and easily paired with about any dark wash or dark colored jean. The stock photo is paired with a pair of green cargo pants, so I thought why not try a similar pair of green chinos, throw on some heels and a pop color…. and call it an outfit? 😄

The henley is on sale right now also – only $20 and comes in 6 colors!

Work Outfit: Jewel Tones

Today’s work outfit is a little business and a little holiday fun. Around this time of year the reds and greens start to take over the stores as we prepare for the upcoming holidays. I’m always been a huge fan of jewel tones (rich greens, blues, and reds like maroon), and when I put this outfit together it was all because of the necklace.

I was drawn into the color tones – it matches the blue clutch and green skirt perfectly, and then has touches of rose gold and a blush pink to off-set the bold colors. I love it!

How do you guys create an outfit? Sometimes I start with the jewelry or shoes like today’s outfit, and sometimes it’s the top or maybe a printed pair of pants. I know the golden rule used to be “always dress around a great pair of shoes” – but since my shoes are more sensible then fun, I choose the jewelry side more often instead! And sometimes… I just throw on whatever the hell I want, look in the mirror, and say “Ya. That should do it.” 😆 and call it a day!

Holiday Party

Hi everyone! So I took little extra time off from blogging last week – it was my husband’s birthday and we enjoyed just spending time together. We hung out near the coast (we live about 10 minutes inland) and at parks, with our horses, ate way too much lol! And it was actually really nice to just take a step away from social media for the week. I headed back to work on Saturday, so on Thursday I sat down and started to think about the blog again. I’ve been talking about taking some real outfit photos for awhile – and so we did!

Todays’ outfit is actually a “flatlay come to life” from a couple weeks ago. I still love this pretty peplum top. It’s definitely lightweight – so perfect for Florida, or throw a cardigan on over top if you’re up north. I would love to style it like that and with booties once we get a little chillier weather down here. That being said – I saw my breath this morning on my run! Woo hoo! The crisp fall air was so refreshing!

The “V” part of the top is a little low cut – I threw on a camisole underneath. I picked up this $8 camisole from Target.

I sized down on the peplum top. As you can see from the above photo it’s a little flowy. I’m wearing an XS and normally I’m a true size small.

I called this outfit “holiday party” because truly I can see this being a fun, affordable outfit for an office party or party with friends this holiday season!

Also – if red isn’t your thing, this top comes in 3 other prints!

Deal of the Day:

I’ve always loved this bag. It’s been around for the last couple years and everytime I see a blogger carry it I regret not purchasing it. I already have a white Rebecca Minkoff bag in my closet so I’ve always passed on it, but now it’s 50% off and only $25! Might be time to bite the bullet. And it’s ivory, not white, so that’s justified right? 🙂

Comfy Transition Sweater:

Love, love the casual comfy over-sized look of this sweater!  It has a v-neck in the front & back with a criss-cross pattern in the front. I felt comfortable wearing just my regular bra underneath, but would look really cute with a bralette also! The material is just a stretchy cotton and no wool, so just perfect for cool days in the 60/70s. The sleeves are longer and meant to push up for a casual look. I purchased my regular size.

These mules are the best! Of the few items I purchased during the #NSale (don’t get me started ha!), these were definitely worth it! The studded version seems to be a Nordstrom exclusive, but there is a plain version available also at both Nordstrom and Steve Madden. I really like the light grey color. Fits tts. And although I’m craving cooler weather so bad in in this Florida heat, these mules work in all of our seasons!

Transition Through Seasons

Guys, I go through this twice a year. That time of year where I’m so sick of all the pinks and greens and brights colors because they’ve been so prominent in fashion since February, and ready for fall colors even though it’s 562 degrees outside. I go through this same transition/blah/bored with clothes period in January (when I’m craving all things spring!) and in July when I’m craving all things fall (however jokes on me because we don’t get a fall in Florida haha!). I go from one day loving dark classic pieces to the next wanting my bright colors again.  The only fun part of this period in July is the Nordstrom Sale hitting stores next week ha!

I saw these nautical pants in store a couple weeks ago and fell in love with them! They are slightly high waisted, zip on the side, and very streamlined. I do recommend going up one size – I could get my regular size zipped, but uncomfortably lol. I returned for a size larger and so happy I did! I paired them here with this easy swing tank, but I’ve tried them on with a classic short sleeve sweater, and also a front tuck tank and both are so fun! These are definitely staple work pants.

So here is my idea of a fall transition outfit. Still summery in texture, but screaming fall and classic with the dark colors. Tomorrow I will be back to all things pink. 🙂
