Work Look: Floral Jacquard Skirt

Hi friends! Today’s outfit post is another work look ~ today featuring this beautiful jacquard skirt which is thick enough for winter with a nice floral pattern for spring. You might remember I have a similar skirt in a gray base with pink and yellow flowers from last year (LOFT brought back an almost identical version here), and that skirt is one of my favorites in my closet. Somehow the skirt shrunk in size (ok, just kidding… one too many holiday cookies…😝) and I’m afraid it’s going to reach the Poshmark pile soon. So, I was pretty ecstatic to be able to replace it with this new version!

Although most days in Florida I could probably wear this exact outfit, I wanted to put together a “winter” version for all of my friends and readers up north ~ see the bottom of this post for my favorite $8 blackout tights and winter accessories!

Work Look: Bell Sleeves & Tweed

Hi guys! Today I wanted to share this new bell sleeve sweater with you! It’s a new arrival from J.Crew Factory. You might have seen it on my ‘Sunday wish list’ from a couple weeks ago. J.Crew Factory offered me a 25% off coupon if I allowed a sweater I ordered (on clearance no doubt… and free shipping…. I think I paid $5.30 lol) to be shipped at snail mail speed. And let me tell you, they held to that promise! I think I ordered the sweater on December 23rd? And it arrived promptly on their “estimated shipping date” of January 4th. Ha! Anyway, I was really happy to have that coupon, because it allowed me to order several new arrival items including this bell sleeve sweater! Thankfully not via horse courier. 🙂

I paired the sweater with another ‘holiday leftover’ if you will – this pretty tweed skirt! The sweater comes in 3 color options – I chose the ivory color because it’s the most neutral and goes with almost anything in my closet. The navy and gray colors are gorgeous – I was drawn to the gray color instantly because of the pink detail, however decided to play it safe.

Both sweater and skirt fit TTS. I’m wearing a size small in the sweater and size 6 in the skirt. I would say if you’re in between a 4 and 6, go down one size – it does have a little room. I’m a true 6 and preferred how it fit with my extra luggage. 😝

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

Work Look: Tweed Skirt

Hi guys! I hope you had a joyful (and possibly another long holiday?) weekend!  I’m back to work today after a few days off and feeling pretty refreshed!  Our weather hasn’t been the most cooperative lately. We had a ton of rain and wind last week into the weekend, and then it warmed up quite a bit, but got pretty windy. We picked the only free day we had to try and take some pictures. The sun and wind weren’t really on our side, so this set of photos and another are a little washed out, but hopefully you get the gist. 🙂

I couldn’t wait to share this pretty tweed skirt on the blog. I promise I’ll wear it again for you soon for an #ootd photo or flatlay (probably both) to get a better idea of colors. It has a beautiful mixture of pink, blue, black, and white tweed. The stock photo on LOFT’s website uses a dark purple sweater paired with the skirt. I was drawn to the pink hue in store, so it really can go with  many colors, and not just the obvious. I loved pairing it with a light pink, but the options are really open here on color matches.

Both my sweater and skirt run a little big. I sized down one in the skirt (wearing a size 4 regular). The sweater I chose my normal size (small), but the sleeves are little long. If you are petite like me I would suggest ordering the petite size you normally wear to get the right sleeve length. I loved the sweater too much to pass it up (my local store was almost sold out), and it’s one of those sweaters you can easily throw on with jeans and sneakers also, so the generous fit didn’t bother me too much.

Work Look: Black, Olive, & Red

Happy Friday! I’ve been a little slow getting back into the swing of the blog this week. Tomorrow is our last day of vacation and trying to stay in the present and not hooked to my computer screen. I actually took this photo last week before vacation started and it never made it to my #ootd roundup, so I figured today would be a good day to post! Nothing too special with my outfit, but a color combination that has always been a fall & winter favorite.

Black, olive, and cognac are always a great neutral combination, and I love adding a pop of red. And of course a little leopard is always a good idea. ☺️

Another Great Top:

As much as I love that new CeCe top I featured on the blog yesterday, I still have a strong love for LOFT tops also! Equally as chic & trendy, LOFT really does make some of the most versatile and long-lasting items for your closet. I have countless shirts (and skirts & pants for that matter) in my closet from years ago past. This pretty ruffle top is no exception. This top is a little more dressy then the one I wore from CeCe yesterday, but I still plan to wear with a nice pair of skinny jeans. It is pretty lightweight, so for all you snowbirds (and honestly for us right now also! Ack!), a nice cardigan will be necessary. However, it’s the prefect light pink for spring and definitely a ‘carry you through the season’ type of shirt.

I’m wearing a regular small here. Sometimes LOFT sizes fit me funny. I’m a normal size small, but usually regular XS fits me better. I go for petite sizing when possible. I loved the length of the regular size on this top though so I kept it as it. You can front tuck or leave un-done and I like it both ways.

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

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. 🙃

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!
