Work Wear Friday – Jan. 5, 2018

This week was another weird week with New Years Day being on Monday. Jake and I were fortunate enough to spend last weekend in Texas visiting his family. When we got back on Tuesday, we really just had time to pick up Oliver and come home to relax a little before I left for a business trip on Wednesday morning. It was only 3 hours away, and I am very happy to be back home today after being away for pretty much the entire week.

Even though it was only a three day work week for me, I still have a full week of cute outfits to share!

Happy New Year!! Although we were in Texas, it was still super cold! I was surprised to see it would only be in the 30’s all week. This Express sweater is so warm and comfortable. I have it in maroon and I loved it so much I bought it again in ivory! I wore my lighter pair of Paige jeans, tan booties, and gold leaf necklace.

Tuesday was travel day, so I wanted to be cute but comfortable. I love cowl neck sweaters, and this one is very comfy and super cute. Another purchase from my Express sale. I added a pink pendant necklace, Liverpool jeans, tan booties, and my favorite Kate Spade bag that carries everything. It was full of things for the flight.

Early morning Wednesday before heading out. Another day comfort was very important. This is another one of the sweaters from my Express sale extravaganza. Big and comfortable, obviously my style. I wore my black Liverpool jeans from Stitch Fix, and my grey booties. The black scarf is from Express, too, but is old.

Staying warm and comfortable. Day 2 of the trip was great. I paired this plain grey long sleeve shirt with my maroon skinny jeans. My scarf was a Christmas gift last year from my best friend, from Charlotte Russe, but I found one sort of similar. I wear my hair up when I’m feeling lazy.

YAY for making it to another Friday!! I was unsure about this sweater when I got it, but after today, I fell in love. It’s amazingly soft and warm. Of course it has the cowl neck design I love, and I really love the slight bell sleeves. I paired it with some Liverpool jeans and my OTK boots. I felt great in this today, and it was still surprisingly comfortable to make my three hour drive in.

Have a wonderful weekend!!

  • When it comes to investment pieces, do you have any rules you set before you get something? This cardigan was definitely an investment but it’s one of my favorites and by far the softest thing I own. I do have a few rules for getting an investment piece, though! 
1. I have to be able to style at least 10 ways with things ALREADY in my closet. I can’t get something else in order to make it work. 
2. I have to be able to wear it multiple times a month. Something I know I’ll use over and over. 
3. It has to be comfortable. If I’m gonna spend a pretty penny on it, it needs to not only look good but FEEL good. I hate uncomfortable clothing! 
4. It shouldn’t be an impulse buy. I like to think about my investment pieces for a bit before I buy them. Even though I love affordable style, I invest in good quality things I know I’ll wear often so they last!

Do you have any rules when it comes to buying something you consider an investment piece? Tell me in the comments!
  • What are your thoughts on the off the shoulder trend?? I love it 🥰 right now I’m fantasizing about spring because we are getting more snow this weekend!! .

This is one of my favorite date night outfits 😍 I rounded up a bunch of OTS sweaters all under $30 and linked them in the app! Click the link in my profile and click “shop my instagram” to see them all!! #liketkit
  • As I’ve continued to clean things out after my binge of Tidying Up on @Netflix, I’m really enjoying getting rid of so much. .
The whole idea is to declutter and let go of things that don’t #sparkjoy for us. This dress is one of those things for me. While it was great to wear for Easter last year, it just doesn’t bring me joy anymore so it’s one of the things I’ll be getting rid of! .
I’m going to be selling a bunch of my stuff on as well as my other typical ways (join my email list on my blog to get my free e-book on how to sell your clothes for cash!). Swipe to see the full dress (and a baby Oliver!) 💙 And DM me if you’re interested in buying it before I post it!

  • Lazy days are the best days ❤️ I love being snuggled up with my babies. Finn is SO NEEDY and is basically attached to one of us at all times.
Side note, if you haven’t watched Tiding Up with Marie Kondo on @netflix yet, WATCH IT. We binged all of it last night and cleaned our house while doing it lol it’s so motivating. I’m gonna finish today and tomorrow and I can’t wait!
