Work Wear Friday – Dec. 22, 2017
Happy Friday!! I’m so excited that Christmas is on Monday. This week has flown by pretty quick, despite how excited I’ve been. It doesn’t help that I got a cold this week. So most of the week was spent focusing on comfort (even more than usual).
I’m very blessed with many aspects of my job, but one of the nice perks is that we are heavily on the casual side of the business casual spectrum. Of course, when I do wear a pullover, it’s something my company gave to me. Otherwise, I prefer to look on the nicer. Always dress for the job you want, not the job you have! I meet a lot of new people all the time and it’s important to make a good impression. Especially in Real Estate Development.
SO. Here’s the week:
Getting close to the end of my fall/winter wardrobe for work before I will start repeating things, so what all I have left are things I haven’t picked yet. When I went through my stuff, I purged everything I didn’t like, so I do like what I have left. But sometimes I forget how much I like things until I put then on. This shirt is a good example of that. It’s just plain navy with pockets, but has a cute V neck design and the pleats in the front. Looking at it on the hanger, it’s not as appealing. But when I put it on, I love it. Paige jeans, my grey Express sweater, and grey booties. The necklace was a gift from my best friend 2 Christmases ago, and I love the navy bead on it to match this top.
Tuesday I wore this plum Express Portofino blouse and another pair of my Paige skinny jeans. I have this shirt in 6 colors, I think. It fits great and can be easily dressed up or down. I love my OTK boots; they keep my legs warm. I added a black floral statement necklace to have less of a plain look. Throw on one of my Express cardigans, and I’m off.
My cold really started to kick in Wednesday and I just wanted to be comfortable. Another one of the gifts my company gave me was this embroidered Eddie Bauer pullover. It’s warm and simple and perfect for a sick day. I hate missing work, but ended up being sent home early, as they didn’t want my germs lol. My Level 99 jeans are so comfortable, too. I got them in one of my Stitch Fix boxes.
The cold was in full effect Thursday. Ugh, I didn’t want to do anything but lay in bed. BUT, I love my job. So I sucked it up and went to work. One of my big fluffy scarves was the way to go. These Liverpool jeans are like butter, it doesn’t feel like I’m wearing jeans at all.
YAY! I made it! I felt much better on Friday, so I had to play up the Christmas spirit. I took my Office Christmas presents to work for everyone. It’s a tradition in my family to give ornaments to each other every year, so I decided to give everyone an ornament based on what they like. I wore another of my Express Portofino shirts, another pair of Paige jeans, and my Christmas tree earrings I got last year at Target. They’re so cute. I also got my nails done to be more festive. I only worked 4 hours today, so I was thinking about wearing this again on Christmas Day. What do you think??
Do you have your Christmas outfit picked out yet??
