Work Wear Friday – Dec. 1, 2017

I survived my first full week at my new job! It was very hectic, with there being so much for me to learn right now, but I absolutely love how interesting it is. It’s very rewarding to work around such motivated and successful people all day.

I am also loving being able to wear jeans every day. Of course, I still have to look professional. So I’ve decided to dedicate Fridays to going through what I wore during the week and discuss the outfits.

One of my favorite looks is blazers with jeans, because I love the mix of the professional and casual together. This week, that was the main look I was feeling. I broke out the blazers and paired them with my nice jeans for a clean business casual look. I invest in my jeans because I love for them to fit me well and be comfortable. I’ve come to discover that cheap denim is much more rigid and doesn’t fit nearly as well. I will gladly spend more for a better, more flattering fit. Plus, they don’t stretch out and they last forever!

My favorite brands right now are Liverpool, which I was introduced to via Stitch Fix, and Paige, which I discovered through blogging. Both fit me very well and are so comfortable you would hardly know you’re wearing jeans. You’ll see a few pairs in this weeks outfits!

I was looking for an outfit that let me wear my new over-the-knee boots, and put this together. The blazer and necklace added the professional touch I needed, and my Liverpool Jeans were so comfortable. Perfect for a Monday. This top is from White House Black Market and I love that it’s different from the traditional horizontal black and white striped tops. Add in my favorite watch to complete the look.

It’s beginning to feel a lot more like Christmas around here!! I wanted to take that feeling with me. This scarf is SO warm and soft, it’s perfect for those cold winder days. These Paige jeans are soft and stretchy, and pair very well with my Ralph Lauren riding boots (similar here). Again, my go-to watch adds a simple touch.

This was probably my favorite look of the week. This Ark & Co. blazer always gets great complements whenever I wear it, and it looks great with jeans or slacks. I got it in one of my SuitableYou boxes, and it’s one of my favorite items I’ve gotten from a clothing box service. It paired great with this Express Portofino blouse and camel heels.

Oh, the Ivory Blazer. Even though it’s so neutral, I struggle to pair it with most things. It went well with this blush pink top; the light tones complement each other really well. Camel heels again for a touch of neutral color, and a pearl necklace to add a touch of class and break up the neckline.

Friday was CHILLY! I wanted to be warm in a turtleneck and comfortable sweater. I have this sweater from Express in this light heather grey and in ivory and I love it. It’s so soft and they go with everything. It’s hard to tell in this picture, but these jeans are dark green, which also made me feel a little Christmassy. It will only keep getting better the closer we get! I wore my silver Michael Kors watch to accent my floral statement necklace which really tied my outfit together. And I love these D’Orsay heels, I have them in 4 colors!

  • 🥰Our first Valentine’s Day being married was so special! Nothing like getting a beautiful arrangement of roses, right ladies?! Jake had them use pink and lavender roses and lavender sprigs between them to fill it out instead of baby’s breath. It smells so good!! I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine’s Day ❤️
  • Happy Valentine’s Day!! I’m working on a little DIY a project today 😍 can’t wait to be done and see the finished result. And to celebrate ❤️ day with hubby later! I hope everyone has a wonderful day filled with love. P.S. — 2 years ago I was single on Valentine’s Day and I made myself a whole cake 🎂 so don’t be afraid to treat yo’self 😎 just sayin! #liketkit

  • Comfy casual for errands is my style 👌🏻 also I love this hat because on the days I don’t feel like doing anything with my hair, hats are a lifesaver. And dry shampoo 😂. I put a poll up on my stories yesterday asking if you guys want to see a series of posts on #cozyminimalism and the answer was an overwhelming yes! I’ve already started working on them and will start posting next week so stay tuned!! In the mean time, check out my post on 12 ways you’re wasting money on clothes and how to stop. We’re all guilty of it 🤷🏻‍♀️. Click the link in my profile to read! #liketkit
  • Fun fact day about my wonderful husband: Jake has this uncanny ability to make me smile and laugh even when I’m sick. I was in bed all weekend but somehow he managed to still make me feel better. 
He is the king of puns and loves to make corny jokes. I’m talking real bad dad jokes. But I think they’re hilarious, and his enthusiasm and the fact that HE finds them so funny is the best part.

It’s the little things like this that showed me he was my perfect person. That and he told me he was going to marry me after 3 weeks of dating 😂🤷🏻‍♀️ which also made my laugh at the time but 9 months later he was down on one knee! 
That was also the same day I tried to break up with him because I had just gotten out of a bad relationship and I was starting to like him way too much too soon. I told him I wasn’t ready for another relationship and he literally said “are you trying to break up with me? We’re gonna get married.” I busted out laughing but he was so serious.
Even then, I could tell he really believed that. Now 4 months into our marriage he still shows me every day he wants to be married to me ❤️👰🏻🤵🏻 We have to appreciate the little things like the bad jokes because the effort behind them is how people say “I love you” in other ways. Happy Monday 💕#marriedlife💍 #marriagegoals
