Work Wear Friday – Jan. 12, 2018

I haven’t worked a full 5 days in my own office in the last 4 weeks, so even though I did work all 5 days, because I worked from home Thursday, it felt like a short week. With Christmas, then New Years, going on a business trip, and now a snow day, it’s throwing me off haha!

Despite all that, I still love to be able to share these posts with you every Friday 😊. One reason (of many) I love my job is the ability to work anywhere my laptop is, if needed. So when the weather was terrible here in KC on Thursday, we all got to stay safe at home and not have to worry about going to the office. Another bonus, Friday I got to bring Oliver to work with me! My office is only 6 people, and 3 of them are owners of the company. So it’s a very close knit group and it’s very much like a family. And they LOVE Oliver. They were so happy to see him and how big he’s gotten!

Now, on to the week:

Oliver loves to follow me around, can you tell? He’s the cutest photobomber. Mondays call for warmth and comfort even more than any other day. I love the lace on the bottom of this sweater, it adds such a cute detail. But this sweater had reached the end of it’s life, I think. It’s started to just get too worn. So I believe this was it’s just hoorah. Big comfy infinity scarf, some distressed jeans and booties are an easy combination when I just don’t feel like thinking much at 7am Monday morning. All of these exact items are sold out, so I tried to find similar!

Excuse the dusty mirror — just wanted a close up!
Excuse my yoga mat in the background, I didn’t roll it up lol. Tuesday I went out to Topeka with my boss to look at a hotel our company was considering buying. It was a short trip as someone had broken in to steal the copper pipes and it was flooded. BUT I felt like since we were going out and about, I’d rep the company swag they so generously gave everyone for Christmas. I love this pullover, it’s so warm and fits great. Not to mention our logo looks great. OTK boots for freezing weather, and I definitely have fleece lined leggings on under my jeans as we were outside a lot.

I loved this outfit! I ended up wearing the scarf a different way, but still loved it. These burgundy corduroy skinnies are warm and a great color. I just had on a black boat neck top under the jacket and black booties, but I just got this jacket and this was the first time I wore it and I love it. Great purchase. And it’s still on sale!!

Thursday I was able to work from home, so I didn’t actually leave my house. BUT I figured I could share my workout outfit from that day instead, since that’s really what I wore around. Part of my New Years resolution is to really maintain my workout routine. Since we’re getting married in October, I really want to look my best. Even though I’m thin, I struggle with self image just as much as everyone else. People make some pretty rude comments to skinny people! Working out also helps me sleep better, so that’s an added benefit. This sports bra is from Victoria’s Secret, and the leggings are underarmour.

When I woke up on this wonderful Friday, it was a whopping 6 degrees out. SIX. So, big sweater, big  scarf, leg warmers, boots, and yes, I do have leggings on under my jeans again. I am always cold, so I have to dress warm always. It’s a solid reason why you’ll rarely, if ever, see me in shorts even in the summer. This scarf was a gift from my best friend, but I tried to find similar ones. It’s from Charlotte Russe.

Also, just for fun, here’s some cuteness from Oliver being at work with me today. He was a very good  baby and just hung out and slept under my desk. You would think he’s be a distraction to me, but really he distracts my co-workers who kept coming in my office to love on him! How could you not, though? He’s precious.

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 ❤️

  • 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!  http://liketk.it/2zSzn #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • 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? ...no. 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
