Work Wear Friday – Dec. 15th, 2017

Happy Friday!! This week has been insanely busy and I’m glad that it’s the weekend. It was a busy week at work with deadlines approaching before the holidays, on top of it being finals week at school and trying to maintain a new puppy!! What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger right? 😅

Even with things getting crazy with school and work, my clothes are a way for me to add some fun into the mix. I am trying to force myself to cycle through my entire fall/winter wardrobe without wearing the same shirt. I’m getting close to the end, and I’m sure like me, you have those clothes that you ignore in favor of other things you love to wear. If I truly don’t want to wear something, I make myself get rid of it. Because I know it will just continue to sit there and I will keep picking other things over it!

When I went through my closet for my last clothing purge, that was my rule. If I don’t love it, I can’t keep it. If it’s a ‘maybe’ item, I said if I didn’t wear it in my first rotation of everything, I would get rid of it. I’m down to my last few things, so another purge may be coming…

I got about 4 hours of sleep total on Sunday night because Oliver wakes up every 2 hours like clockwork and takes a while to fall back asleep. So I wanted to be comfortable! These Liverpool Jeans I got from my second Stitch Fix box and I looove how comfortable they are. They feel like jeggings, so they’re very stretchy, but they also look like jeans. Great combo. This scarf is so warm and fluffy over my cardigan sweater. Cold day comfort outfit.

The company I work for is awesome, and they got us these warm and comfy Marmot pullovers embroidered with the company logo. Since I was out of the office most of the day on Tuesday taking tours of properties around the area, I was repping OPG. I wore my OTK Steve Madden boots to stay extra warm, and my darker pair of Paige jeans. One of my co-workers actually gave me this Kate Spade purse for helping her clean out her closet when she moved into a new house. I love it!! It’s a great cross-body bag and fits a surprising amount in it.

I had a few meetings Wednesday and I wasn’t sure how I’d feel wearing this, as I kinda got dressed in the dark (again, lack of sleep). But I got a lot of love from my co-workers on it. I got this Banana Republic shirt at Marshalls for a steal, and this Express Cardigan is one of my go-to layering pieces. This pair of Liverpool jeans is so stretchy and comfortable, and just throw in some booties for the cold December days. I add my favorite watch to most of my looks, too.

Thursday was COLD. I wanted to wear some warm pieces so I wouldn’t be shivering at my desk. My Kut from the Kloth Burgundy corduroy pants were the first thing that came to mind. I added this Philosophy cashmere sweater (with another long sleeve shirt under it for added warmth) and my black booties. I was warm! I got this simple bar necklace to layer on the cowl neck for an extra something on top.

Oh, Friday. I’ve been waiting for you. Another cold day called for a thick sweater. I got this years ago, and I love it because it’s the same color as my eyes so it really makes them pop when I wear it. I felt simple today, but still cute and professional. I love the look of layered necklaces, so I added 2 to my look today for some extra shine. My Ralph Lauren riding boots are super warm and perfect for those cold days.

  • 🥰Our first Valentine’s Day being married was so special! Nothing like getting a beautiful arrangement of roses, right ladies?! Jake had them use pink and lavender roses and lavender sprigs between them to fill it out instead of baby’s breath. It smells so good!! I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine’s Day ❤️
  • Happy Valentine’s Day!! I’m working on a little DIY a project today 😍 can’t wait to be done and see the finished result. And to celebrate ❤️ day with hubby later!

  • Comfy casual for errands is my style 👌🏻 also I love this hat because on the days I don’t feel like doing anything with my hair, hats are a lifesaver. And dry shampoo 😂. I put a poll up on my stories yesterday asking if you guys want to see a series of posts on #cozyminimalism and the answer was an overwhelming yes! I’ve already started working on them and will start posting next week so stay tuned!! In the mean time, check out my post on 12 ways you’re wasting money on clothes and how to stop. We’re all guilty of it 🤷🏻‍♀️. Click the link in my profile to read! #liketkit
  • Fun fact day about my wonderful husband: Jake has this uncanny ability to make me smile and laugh even when I’m sick. I was in bed all weekend but somehow he managed to still make me feel better. 
He is the king of puns and loves to make corny jokes. I’m talking real bad dad jokes. But I think they’re hilarious, and his enthusiasm and the fact that HE finds them so funny is the best part.

It’s the little things like this that showed me he was my perfect person. That and he told me he was going to marry me after 3 weeks of dating 😂🤷🏻‍♀️ which also made my laugh at the time but 9 months later he was down on one knee! 
That was also the same day I tried to break up with him because I had just gotten out of a bad relationship and I was starting to like him way too much too soon. I told him I wasn’t ready for another relationship and he literally said “are you trying to break up with me? We’re gonna get married.” I busted out laughing but he was so serious.
Even then, I could tell he really believed that. Now 4 months into our marriage he still shows me every day he wants to be married to me ❤️👰🏻🤵🏻 We have to appreciate the little things like the bad jokes because the effort behind them is how people say “I love you” in other ways. Happy Monday 💕#marriedlife💍 #marriagegoals
