A Little Bit of Everything + Hello Monday Linkup

Happy Monday!

These last couple weeks have been a little hectic, and a lot cold!  So formal blog photo content is a little scarce.  

That being said, I have a few work outfits to share and a few other fun odds'n'ends.

Who wore it best?

I wore this look to work a little while ago, and then posted the 'who wore it best' poll on Instagram, and it wasn't even a competition.   Ha!  Sherlock won by a landslide, as he should've.

Business Casual Work Wear

I also wore this outfit to work a week ago on Thursday.  I had zero meetings, and decided to see if anything bad happened if I wore jeans to the office to literally sit at my desk all day.  
Spoiler, nothing happened.  Nobody cared.
Theory blazer | J.Crew Factory cardigan | H&M neckerchief | J.Crew tee | 7 For All Mankind ankle skinny jeans | Jimmy Choo flats

Serious Shoe Decisions

I stumbled upon Margaux shoes looking for the perfect navy flats.  Then I fell in love with the navy suede heels.  I think I may pull the trigger on those this month, and if they're as amazing as I hope, add the ballet flats in cognac or pale pink next month.  What do you think?

Indoor Climbing

I've stayed pretty consistent about going twice a week, and I just bought a whole year membership, so if I wasn't committed before, I am now!  I took a lead climbing (climbing where you clip the rope in yourself as you go, rather than having it anchored at the top of the wall) class a few weeks ago too, I just need to take the plunge and test for my certification.  I took a pretty rough fall during class though, so it's a matter of building my courage back up.  Hoping to complete it this month!

H&M Try-Ons

$35 orange print crepe dress - I sized up to a 6 in this for my shoulders.  The fit was good, but the neck felt constricting, and I'm super picky about how my clothes feel, so it was a pass.  I loved the color and pattern though.
$25 orange fine knit sweater - I went with a small in this style, and it was good.  Just a touch thin and not as soft as I like my sweaters.  I passed, but I may return to pick it up because I've been looking for an orange sweater for awhile with no success.
$40 tweed skirt - this I loved!  However the 8 felt a little tight across my hips for the office and they didn't have a 10 to try.  For reference, I typically wear a 4, so this definitely ran small.  It was adorable though, I may need to order the size up online.  It also has a matching jacket but I found it excessively boxy. 
$50 orange/blue sweater (not online) - this was cute and super warm, but just not worth the $50 pricetag to me.
$40 pearl embellished jeans - these I also loved, but I literally couldn't even sit down in this size and they didn't have the size up in stores.  I tried a 27, and needed the 28.  Sadly they're not available online yet, otherwise I would absolutely order them.

And since it's Monday that means Linkup Day! (yes, totally a proper noun)

  9. Indoor climbing looks fun but also a bit scary! I love the tweed skirt and pearl embellished jeans you tried on, shame they didn't fit right. Hopefully you'll be able to get them online.
