Suede & Cozy Knits + Hello Monday Linkup

Hello friends!

As I was drafting this post, I saw that this jacket is marked down 40%- and the black and red are also marked down!  I love this jacket- it gets so much wear.  The color is so rich, and looks great with everything.  I also like the simplified design compared to the more pervasive version with a belt (which I may or may not own in olive...)- mostly because the belt buckle on the other version clinks when you walk.  Maybe that sounds silly, but I notice noisy fashion when walking around the office... shoe zippers that click, pants that swish, and I find myself getting self-conscious about it.  

I find that it runs about a size small- I purchased this one in small, but I can only layer lightly with it.  Oddly, the forearms and elbows are the tightest part.  I own the olive in medium, and it's perfect for a thicker knit or sweater underneath.

Pick of the Week

I just scooped up this sequin tee- and it's on mega sale right now.  I think it will be perfect with a black pencil skirt to dress it up, or skinny jeans and a metallic shoe for a more casual approach.

Subtle Festivity + Hello Monday Linkup

Phew.  Made it through a 5-day week in the office after a lovely 4-day Thanksgiving weekend.  How did you guys fare?  I think the time off work might be my favorite part of holidays 😉

I mean maybe not my favorite, but it sure was nice!  While I enjoy the family, friends, food, and festivities associated with the holidays, I'm not a terribly festive person.  Since we got married 4 Christmases ago, we haven't had a Christmas tree or really even decorated.  Granted, that's part laziness, part lack of storage/space/moving frequently, and partially that I just don't care enough?  

However, I do get a litttle excited about mixing a few more festive colors into my wardrobe.  You'll never find me in head to toe red and green,  (see last year's work Christmas party look) but this fun emerald sweater and embellished shoes are right up my festive alley.

Speaking of festive- I shared this fabulous velvet slip dress over the weekend on instagram, and it would be seriously perfect for holiday parties and is an absolute steal.

Work Wear Week 8

1 comment:
Earlier this month I had a 2-day conference in Atlanta for work, so I was without a husband to take my morning photographs Thursday and Friday. 


Guys, this shirt is printed with tiny bananas and I love it.  That is all. 



Travel day!  I worked from home in the morning before catching an afternoon flight to Atlanta- so I kept it very comfy-casual.

Neckerchief, Cyber Weekend Buys + Hello Monday Linkup

Happy Cyber Monday!  I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving and hopefully break from the usual routine.  I know I did- my time off was super relaxing.  This 5 day week is going to be tough 😝

It was the first time in a few years I didn't go out shopping on Black Friday, the only place I went was the climbing gym for a few specials, ha!  I did venture out Saturday to take care of a couple of returns and it wasn't even that busy!  I guess everyone really is doing their shopping online now.

Speaking of which- this 'neckerchief' was an online purchase, so I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about it.  After a day of wear, I gotta say, I really dig it.  Neckerchiefs are particularly convenient given the current mockneck trend- they're very compatible.
