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

  • Simple is always better. I tried so hard to figure out what I was going to wear for Easter. I spent a good hour trying things on the week before. I sent my sister tons of pictures asking her thoughts. In the end, I wasn’t really satisfied with any of them for some reason so I decided to just go with an outfit I know I love and feel good in. For some reason wearing white just makes me feel super put together. And I managed to not spill anything on myself or get chocolate on my pants which is a major win y’all. .

We don’t need to overthink things so much. It just causes unnecessary stress. I do like to plan ahead because it saves me time, but I also should have realized sooner that the dress I was trying to make work just wasn’t working. Even though I love that dress, it doesn’t flatter me how I want it to and it might be time to let it go. Don’t be afraid to let go of things that don’t give you exactly what you need. You don’t have to settle, something else will always come along. Or you probably already have something else in your closet (or life, this isn’t limited to clothes!) that’s even better than what you’re trying to make work!
  • Happy Easter 🐰❤️
  • Casual Good Friday ❤️ this was yesterday’s work outfit but I jazzed myself up before we went to church with Jakes mom and stepdad last night. I cried like a baby. Good Friday always both kicks my ass and reminds me how blessed we all are. 
The beautiful KC weather this weekend is so exciting!! I’m so happy when it’s Spring weather 😍 Have a beautiful Saturday!!
  • “There is beauty in simplicity”
My simple wardrobe makes me so happy and I love the seemingly endless possibilities I have with it. Having a love of neutrals really works well for me with this! 
Happy Good Friday ❤️
  • The only things in my life these days are the things I really want there. This isn’t limited to the stuff in my house and the clothes in my closet. This includes my job, relationships, hobbies, everything. I’ve even started eating better as a by-product of simplifying my life and I just feel better over all. .

By removing the things and people that don’t make me happy, I have more time and energy for the things that do that I used to put off and not prioritize like I should have. We spend so much of our lives being “busy”. But what are we busy with? Most of it is actually unimportant when you break it down. .

I say no to things much more now and that allows me to spend more of my time relaxing and enjoying life. I used to constantly feel rushed or like I should be doing something. If I wasn’t moving, I felt like I was wasting my time. But the truth is, resting and just being home with Jake and the boys is my happy place. It brings me so much joy, so that’s what my priority is. .

Having more time to just BE has been amazing. Being more picky in my relationships has helped me really value the ones I hold most dear and has brought me to an amazing new job because I wasn’t willing to settle for anything less. Respect yourself and your time and prioritize the things that matter most to you. Life’s too short to live any other way.
  • “When you love what you have, you have everything you need.” So many wonderful things have happened since I simplified my life. Changing my outlook on life wasn’t really intentional, but I’m so thankful it happened when it did. I was kind of at a breaking point. Fed up with where I was and how things were going with my old job. Struggling with depression and comparison. I knew something had to change but I had no idea what. Simplicity was that thing. .
.
Now, I spend way less time on social media. I deleted Facebook off my phone and haven’t  looked at it in weeks. I’m much happier without it. I read a lot more. I’m getting much better at ignoring the impulse to pick up my phone and when I am on it, to compare my life to the perfect pictures people post. I even cut a few inches off my hair! 💇🏻‍♀️ I want things as easy as they can be right now. It takes a lot of stress out of my life. Try to go a whole weekend without social media and see how awesome it feels!
