Work Wear Friday – Mar. 9, 2018

This week’s Work Wear Friday is the comfort edition since I’ve been sick this week and working from home. I only went to work on Monday and have worked from home for the rest of the week since no one wanted me there with my germs. I can do my job from anywhere, which is very nice so I don’t get behind while it’s so busy.

I’m a big fan of comfy clothes, and I definitely stayed comfy (and decently cute) this week.
My cold hit me later in the day on Monday. I started off feeling great and wanted to break out this blazer (similar here and here) I got from one of my Stitch Fix boxes. It’s such a great color for Spring. My booties (similar here and here) are also perfect for Spring. Really trying to force it to happen.
Tuesday I actually didn’t change out of Jakes sweatpants all day, but felt like this was a better outfit to share will you guys from over the weekend. I shared it on Instagram and got some questions on the cardigan. It’s from Express, but sadly it’s sold out. I’ve linked some similar ones for you here. These Level 99 jeans from one of my Stitch Fix boxes are super comfortable. Again, trying to bring in Spring with the tulips.
I went into work for about 30 minutes Wednesday to pick up my first FabFitFun box (review coming soon!) and I was eager to open it. But then they made me leave because I don’t sound the best. So I had this outfit on for about an hour total haha. But I do so love this vest and will wear it as often as I can. I knew I wasn’t going to be there long so I wore my comfy mocassins. Also Oliver seriously loves to be in pictures, haha.
Comfort to the max! I love this sweatshirt. I got it from Marshalls and it’s perfect with leggings because it’s long. AND it has pockets!! I love when things have pockets, y’all. My Under Armour leggings are wonderfully comfy. And I’m a bit obsessed with my Apple Watch, I’m coming up with a post just for it to share with you guys why it’s so wonderful.

 

Hopefully my last sick day! I’m going on a business trip next week so I need to get healthy. I’m finally feeling better today after this nasty cold. Still all about being comfortable while working from home, though. I found this criss cross sweatshirt (similar here and here) at Marshalls, too and loove it. The back is so cute and I love that it’s oversized and long to wear with leggings. Today I’m wearing it with my cute and comfortable Free People Bralette and worlds most comfortable yoga pants. Side note, my dog is basically an accessory as he’s in every picture haha.

What’s everyone got going on this weekend?? It’s supposed to be nice here in KC, so we’ll probably take Oliver outside as much as possible.

XO,

Dani

  • Enjoying a wonderful long weekend trip to Wisconsin visiting Jake’s older brother and enjoying allll the cheese curds 🧀
. 
I’m working on limiting my social media activity and only taking one picture to capture a moment instead of 30 trying to get them perfect. It’s been a nice side effect of minimalism and it’s helping me learn to not be so concerned with what others think, stop playing the comparison game, and live in the moment. I’m much more relaxed and happy without all the unnecessary drama and stress of the world. Definitely recommend trying it out if you struggle with anxiety like I do ❤️
  • I’m not a big selfie person so here’s one with my little ham to make it better while I show you my new hair🤳🏻
. 💇🏻‍♀️ I’ve cut off 8+ inches of my hair since my wedding. This last cut over the weekend was the big finale, an additional 4 inches off. Doing it slowly made it less of a shock and helped me confirm it was really what I wanted. This is the shortest my hair has been since I was 5!! My mom used to cut it and gave me a mullet once sooo I’ve kept it long ever since 🤣🤦🏻‍♀️ My sister @juliestanbridge loooves to tell that story to anyone that’ll listen. I was definitely ready for a change and I’m thrilled with this length. .

I’m really enjoying the simplicity of less makeup and less hair care lately 😌 it takes me 15 minutes to wake up and get ready every morning, including making coffee and my lunch! I feel more beautiful in my own skin which has been a life long struggle, laugh lines and all. This simple life is more than I ever expected in so many ways and keeps getting better as I go. How could your life be better with less?
  • Today is a happy excuse to share some wedding photos ❤️ .

I’d be so lost without my mom and sister. I’m so blessed to have such a close relationship with them both. It wasn’t always this way but I’m glad that as I grew up, I realized how much I needed them both. They’re my rocks. .

I’m thankful for my mother-in-law because she’s accepted me wholeheartedly into the family and she raised my amazing husband and taught him how to treat me. Not everyone is so lucky to actually love their in-laws so I really appreciate this and don’t take it for granted!
.

I’m thankful for my Godmother, Kim, my best friend Courtney’s momma who is literally like a second mom to me and I love her whole family dearly ❤️ they’re a constant blessing. .

And Happy Mother’s Day to the moms out there like me who hold their babies in their hearts instead of their arms 👼🏻 You are celebrated today, too! #happymothersday
  • Getting rid of the extra stuff in our house we never used has been the best way of keeping it clean and organized. Everything has a place. There are still pictures on the walls and decor items on the shelves, but I don’t feel the need to have EVERY INCH decorated like I used to. It’s nice to have more open space, it looks and feels bigger! .

I always thought I was disorganized, but the truth is I just had too much stuff. Because let’s be real, if organizing your stuff actually worked, wouldn’t you be done by now?
  • Happy Saturday ❤️ I’ve been super inspired to write lately so I’m working on multiple blog posts. It feels so good to write again.

When I started talking about minimalism instead of fashion, my engagement dropped dramatically. Like, 70% probably. It was pretty upsetting in the beginning, not gonna lie. .

But likes and comments and followers aren’t what matter. The people that followed me before followed me for something I’m not talking about anymore, so that change is really ok with me. I’m appealing to a new audience now and I love that. I want to provide value to you guys, it’s the only thing that motivates me. I don’t post just to post anymore. I just had to realize that the people that are left still want to hear what I have to say, so I keep going for you! Thank you for being here ❤️
  • I’ve really been enjoying my time away from social media, but I also still enjoy mindlessly scrolling through pretty pictures sometimes. Life is all about balance. I see a lot of my fellow bloggers also struggle with the balance of creating a successful page and knowing when to give ourselves a break. It can be overwhelming! .

I put up a new blog post today about why I decided to give up on my shopping ban and instead focus on a LOW buy year and not a NO buy year. The main reason is it makes more sense for my life because things have come up and I don’t want to guilt myself into not buying something if it will make my life a bit easier. Minimalism is not about deprivation, it’s about intentionality. You can see the post at DaniThom.com via the link in my bio ❤️
