Work Wear Friday – Jan. 5, 2018

This week was another weird week with New Years Day being on Monday. Jake and I were fortunate enough to spend last weekend in Texas visiting his family. When we got back on Tuesday, we really just had time to pick up Oliver and come home to relax a little before I left for a business trip on Wednesday morning. It was only 3 hours away, and I am very happy to be back home today after being away for pretty much the entire week.

Even though it was only a three day work week for me, I still have a full week of cute outfits to share!

Happy New Year!! Although we were in Texas, it was still super cold! I was surprised to see it would only be in the 30’s all week. This Express sweater is so warm and comfortable. I have it in maroon and I loved it so much I bought it again in ivory! I wore my lighter pair of Paige jeans, tan booties, and gold leaf necklace.

Tuesday was travel day, so I wanted to be cute but comfortable. I love cowl neck sweaters, and this one is very comfy and super cute. Another purchase from my Express sale. I added a pink pendant necklace, Liverpool jeans, tan booties, and my favorite Kate Spade bag that carries everything. It was full of things for the flight.

Early morning Wednesday before heading out. Another day comfort was very important. This is another one of the sweaters from my Express sale extravaganza. Big and comfortable, obviously my style. I wore my black Liverpool jeans from Stitch Fix, and my grey booties. The black scarf is from Express, too, but is old.

Staying warm and comfortable. Day 2 of the trip was great. I paired this plain grey long sleeve shirt with my maroon skinny jeans. My scarf was a Christmas gift last year from my best friend, from Charlotte Russe, but I found one sort of similar. I wear my hair up when I’m feeling lazy.

YAY for making it to another Friday!! I was unsure about this sweater when I got it, but after today, I fell in love. It’s amazingly soft and warm. Of course it has the cowl neck design I love, and I really love the slight bell sleeves. I paired it with some Liverpool jeans and my OTK boots. I felt great in this today, and it was still surprisingly comfortable to make my three hour drive in.

Have a wonderful weekend!!

  • 🥰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! I hope everyone has a wonderful day filled with love. P.S. — 2 years ago I was single on Valentine’s Day and I made myself a whole cake 🎂 so don’t be afraid to treat yo’self 😎 just sayin! #liketkit

  • 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
