Work Wear Friday – Dec. 29, 2017

The last Work Wear Friday of 2017 is here!! I can’t believe how quickly this year has gone. Christmas  has come and gone, and here we are already at New Years!

This year, I’m spending New Years in Texas with Jake’s grandparents and cousin. We’re celebrating our engagement at the same time, so it’ll be a lot of fun!

For this week, of course Monday was Christmas, and I also had off on Tuesday. Monday I did dress up to look nice for Christmas but Tuesday was a lazy day. Here we go.

Christmas! This is the only picture I have of my outfit from Monday. I felt like being festive for the day, so I wore this split sleeve pearl embellished top with a bright red Calvin Klein scarf. I got this top from Marshalls for only $13 and I love it! Jake said I looked like I was wearing ornaments, so I felt Christmassy. I wore some of my Paige jeans, and my black OTK Steve Madden boots. Christmas tree earrings that you can’t see, but they matched my scarf. This whole day was spent talking about our engagement and discussing wedding plans!

Tuesday was a lazy day spent entirely in the house. Jake’s older brother is in town from Wisconsin and stayed with us Monday night and we spent the day Tuesday with him and his wife since we don’t see them much. Since they’ve been traveling and Christmas was so busy, we were all more than happy to just cook and hang around the house and watch some movies together. Jake got me these awesome Hue fleece lined leggings for Christmas that are so warm. I wore one of my fleece North Face jackets, and my favorite Lemon slipper socks that are so warm and fuzz lined. Perfect cozy day.

Back to work! I do love my job, so I don’t mind going back after the holiday. This week was pretty lax since most people were out of the office on vacation, so there have just been three of us. Wednesday the high was only 13 degrees, so I knew I needed to be warm. I wore this wonderful Rip Curl turtleneck that kept me nice and toasty. My dark American Eagle jeans looked great in contrast with the ivory top, and I added matching leg warmers for an extra layer under my Ralph Lauren riding boots. My gold leaf necklace and go-to Kate Spade watch added some gold detail.

One of my many gifts from my mom and sister were this maroon turtleneck and floral scarf by A New Day from Target. I love Target’s clothes, I can get in trouble whenever I go in there just by wandering instead of going and getting what I need and getting out. I love this maroon color, and it’s very popular this season. The floral scarf added a nice touch to keep it from being too plain, and I added a long tan cardigan that I’ve had for years. Another pair of Paige jeans and my OTK Steve Madden boots

It’s the end of the week already! I felt like rocking the New Years vibe and wore this Halogen glittery sweater I got from my first Trunk Club box, over top of one of my many Express Portofino shirts. I added a pearl statement necklace to jazz it up a bit, as I felt the neckline was too plain. I love the glitter of this sweater, metallics are very big this fall. I had on Liverpool jeans and my OTK Steve Madden boots. These boots are my go-to’s right now because they’re tall and warm, and go with everything! I did a close up to show the glitter of the top, it’s so cute.

  • 🥰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
