You Better Work: October 11 – 14, 2016
Here we are again, people. Can you tell that I’ve actually tried to stick with something? Taking pictures of my daily #ootds has actually proven to be easier to stick to than other habits I’ve tried forming, like eating healthy or remembering to take my makeup off every night (you know, things that actually benefit your overall wellbeing?). Until I completely turn my life around, you’ll just have to settle for some daily outfit photos for now. This was a short week due to the Columbus Day holiday and trust me, you missed nothing not having a Monday ensemble. Steve and I traveled off-island (more on that trip later) and due to some torrential rain, I spent all day in Bean boots and a navy slicker. New England style to the max! Here’s the outfits I did manage to put together once I was back at work:
Banana Republic cardi (this is way more $$$, but I’m obsessed) / NY & Co. top (sim) / Macys jeans / Dolce Vita booties / C.Wonder belt / Danielle Stevens Jewelry necklace (sim) / Kate Spade earrings (stud version)
Quick note about Thursday’s look: I found this simple red dress in the clearance section at Old Navy last year for $7. SEVEN, as in single digits, like I can’t even spend that little on a trip to the Juice Bar. I couldn’t believe it – it just seemed like one of those perfect pieces you could dress up or down. I’ve worn it everywhere from conferences to hosting Wine Festival for NCTV last year. It is truly one of the most hardworking pieces I own, despite it’s crazy low price tag. When I found out that our local glossy N Magazine wanted to interview me for their latest “Not So Fast” feature online, I knew this would be the perfect pop of color to be photographed in surrounded by the historic scenery in the museum.
I think that’s about all the excitement for this week. I’m planning on finally doing my spring/summer to fall/winter closet changeover, so if you don’t hear from me it’s because I’m buried under a pile of discounted dresses (don’t laugh, it has happened not once, or twice, but three times when I’ve broken the rod in my closet).
