Work vs. Play

I’ve got a work vs. play look here again.. I feel like this might become routine. Both tops I’m wearing in this post were recent Target finds. My love for Target is never-failing. I ended up getting about four tops and a pair of yoga pants (because.. yoga pants, duh) all from the clearance rack! The new merchandise on the floor consisted of bikinis, cover ups, and shorts – and it’s been about eight degrees over here so that was not too appealing. They had a massive clearance section though so I spent waaay too much time scanning through it all, naturally.

(Sneaky work outfit selfies!) This top is actually really nice quality & I would have bought it full price at $29, but I was definitely happy to find it at $12.50. It’s sleeveless and is a pretty blush color with black color blocking on the sides.

Also got my hair did finally! I feel so much better not hauling around so much dead weight anymore.

Sometimes (all the time) I wish I could wear whatever I felt like wearing to work.  I’m not talking like ‘pajamas and ratty T-shirt’ wear anything, but just  based on whatever my style mood was of the day. Style mood is a thing.. it is reflected upon the weather, current musical interests, etc. Both above outfits were worn the past week when it was particularly rainy and nasty out, and sometimes all you feel like wearing in that sort of weather is a cuddly sweater, perfectly fitted pants, and some wedge booties to protect your toes from puddles.

Holidaze

I am really not meaning to sound like a Grinch here, but this holiday season has been a little more frustrating than most. I did myself a favor by picking up some gifts here and there early on so I don’t have to scramble at the last minute, but I still have a few important pieces to get along the way. The major source of stress is from work, naturally, and not finding the time to actually go out and get said gifts or being able to enjoy all the special holiday activities… and when I do have time I somehow find myself on the couch with hot cocoa and Netflix… whoooops. With all that being said I am still hopeful I’ll get a few days squeezed into December to do all the sparkly, cozy, festive, fun-filled Holiday traditions!

Here is the way I styled the plaid jacket I found at Target I had mentioned in the previous post.

Don’t ask me why I hardly ever have shoes on in these posts. I do not have an answer for you, other than by the time I walk out the door I can assure you I have found a pair.

Better Weurk

Sweet little work outfit from the other day. I thought long and hard about tucking the shirt into the skirt, but then realized about how many times throughout the day I’d be consumed with tucking and re-tucking (perhaps I was just feeling a little tired..lazy), so I figured I’d try something new and adventurous by leaving it out!

On an unrelated note, I can’t decide on this jacket or not. Si o no?

I do like it and all, but a part of me is holding out for the perfect cream or blush colored faux leather jacket so I can’t quite commit.

For an upcoming work meeting my boss e-mail blasted us that we will need to bring our favorite inspirational quote to share with the rest of the group. I can’t say I have a favorite author that I refer to often, but I do have a Pinterest board filled with some inspiring words. That counts, right? There is one quote I remember reading on a magazine cover with model Agyness Deyn (Sidenote: Where’s that chick been!?) awhile back that read, “Feel the fear and do it anyway.” I don’t know if she is the one to have coined it first considering I have since seen it other places, and recently came across it again via Pinterest.

I have some major work/personal/life/wordly considerations coming up so I thought the timing was perfect as I read through some of my favorite quotes I’ve Pinned. Here are just a few of my favorites.

We Wear Pink on {Saturdays}

So you know when you go in to Target for two things and come out with ten? Yeah, that happened this week. Twice. But this shirt I tell you! So colorful and flowy with the cool exposed zipper in the back.. and it was only $12? Ya just don’t walk away from that. Or the other two tops you got. Along with the underwear… see? Two becomes ten very easy.
