Thank goodness for three day weekends, because as you’re reading this, I’m probably still in bed…
Saturday I was pretty productive, Sunday I was a couch potato and today, we shall see.
This weekend, Eddie and I finally finished You and omg I am shook!! I am still thinking about the ending because I am so shocked. It’s still haunting me. We also watched the Taylor Swift concert on Netflix which reminded me how much I love her and a few stand up comedy specials. Overall, it was a pretty nice balance between productive and relaxing.
Today, we are focusing on winter work wardrobe. I did a poll on Instagram stories to see if you guys wanted to see what I actually wear to work or if you wanted to see styled outfits. And the poll was pretty unanimous in that you wanted to see what I actually wear to work. A lot of what I wear on the blog, I also wear in my everyday life. So please don’t think what you see here is not real. I’m not buying and returning outfits!
But, the big difference is that I just try to dress it up more, by wearing heels or wearing more accessories or a nice bag or throwing on a nicer coat. Whereas in my everyday life, I keep it super simple and casual. Most of the time, I’m running around at work, I’m getting into just about everything and my days are pretty long so I don’t want to wear a super dressed up outfit where I’m going to feel uncomfortable. Plus, my dress code is pretty laid back so it gives me a lot of room. So today, I wanted to get real with you guys, electrical wires exposed and all and share what I actually wear to work.
WINTER WORK WARDROBE:
When Monday rolls around, I’m hopefully relaxed from the weekend so I’ll try to put in a little effort. My current favorite look is a white oxford shirt and black high waist jeans. It’s classic and casual and what I’m most comfortable in so consider this my “dressed up look.”
In the fall/winter, I seriously only wear two pairs of shoes. My black leather vans which are my favorite and I am literally always wearing them. I think this is my second pair. And my black chelsea boots. I haven’t worn them much this year because they’re getting old and not as comfortable anymore and I haven’t gotten around to getting a new pair.
Depending on how my Monday went, my style is either going to go uphill or downhill from there. Last week wasn’t that bad for me so I like to consider this uphill.
My go-to jeans and a slightly over-sized navy sweater that I picked up last year, that is one of those pieces that you can just throw on and go. To add a little pop, I threw on this silk neck scarf. I got into neck scarves/bandanas last year and I really like the way they transform an outfit.
Same jeans from yesterday. A Disney striped tee. An old cardigan. And my everyday Vans. It’s definitely hump day.
I’m definitely a jeans & tee kind of gal so I like keeping a handful of cardigans on rotation, obviously for warmth, but also to add a little more interest to my casual look.
By Thursday, I’m honestly reaching for anything in sight just to get me out the door.
I put an H&M order in last October with a few sweaters and honestly I’ve just been rotating them most of this fall/winter. It’s funny because I love color, but during the work week, I like staying neutral and especially wearing all black. So this sweater is definitely my favorite because it gives me that all black I crave, but with a pop of color.
It’s Friday and while my spirits are high, my style is definitely downhill. My go-to Friday look is a pair of leggings and either my super old “Downtown” sweater or my Levi’s sweater. I don’t always switch up my Vans, but occasionally I’ll feel like adding a pop of color so I’ll throw on these fun sneakers.
And there’s a week of my actually winter work wardrobe! I told ya I keep it super casual. If it’s easy and comfortable and I can throw it on quickly before I run out the door, then it’s for me.
If this isn’t your cup of tea and you like making an effort for work or have a dress code, I’ll be doing a week of styled winter work outfits next week. I just wanted to pull back the curtain a little and show you guys what I actually look like throughout the week.
Thank you so much for stopping by and reading. Have a great week!
