Work Wear Friday – April 6, 2018

Happy Friday!! Or should I say Fri-yay. Today is happy for multiple reasons, I’ll explain why in a minute.

For now, here’s this weeks lineup:


vest // pullover // jeans // shoes


sweater // jeans // shoes


sweater // jeans // booties


sweater // bralette // jeans // shoes



Pullover // Joggers

So, happy things. First, I’m thankful for my job because Oliver got neutered yesterday and I will be working from home to be with him today while he recovers. He is on pain meds and a sedative so he’s pretty loopy, but it keeps him from hurting himself so that’s a plus. You see he’s missing from Thursday’s picture as he was already at the Vet. I don’t feel complete without him in my pictures.

Second, I’m so excited for the first Spotlight Saturday post tomorrow because I think that feature is going to be really fun for me to do and will not only teach me new things, but you guys as well. I love  finding other bloggers to follow, so here’s a chance for you to, too.

And finally, the new site change over. I’m moving my site from Blogger to and I’m really looking forward to sharing all of the work I’ve put into the site design and layout over the last few weeks. It’s been QUITE the process, let me tell you. But it will be well worth it because I think it looks a lot better and has more to offer for you guys.

I’m doing self-hosted and I decided to go through SiteGround per the recommendation of Ell DuClos. It was definitely a great choice because I’ve had so many issues during this process and they have been SO helpful. I literally am now on a first name basis with their IT department.

My sweaters from Tuesday and Wednesday are BOTH on sale right now!! And I’m still obsessing over these leopard loafers. They’re so comfortable and go with everything. I’d probably wear this Patagonia vest every day if I could because it’s so warm. I used to hate vests, and still am not a big fan of most, but I just love this one.

I’m dubbing this week “Winter in Spring” because it was in the 30s all week minus Thursday where it was 60 and beautiful. It’s actually supposed to snow again this weekend. Kansas…

My sweaters from Tuesday and Wednesday are BOTH back in stock and on sale right now!! And I’m still obsessing over these leopard loafers. They’re so comfortable and go with everything. I’d probably wear this Patagonia vest every day if I could because it’s so warm. I used to hate vests, and still am not a big fan of most, but I just love this one.

On a comfort note, this bralette is extremely comfortable and is so cute under such a variety of things. I loved it under my off-the-shoulder sweater with the lace-up back detail. Normally I wear a lace-backed bra with it, but since that’s a little much for work I decided to do this instead as I can keep it covered with my hair.

Today’s outfit is also focused on comfort as I’m working from home. I got this Lululemon pullover brand new with tags still on it from eBay for about 60% off. And when I say I don’t want to change out of sweats, these are the ones I mean. These joggers are so extremely comfortable I wish I could live in them. I do, on the weekends.

Is anyone doing anything fun this weekend??

  • 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!
