Hi everyone! This week has really flown by. I am still not able to understand how the summer (at least for the kiddos) is almost half over). School will be back in session before I know it. But, in a way, that’s a good thing, because this summer has been particularly busy. And extremely hot. Yesterday it was like 98 degrees. I felt so bad for my kids, who were suffering through soccer practice in that hot muggy heat, whilst I enjoyed the A/C in my car. #badmom
Enough of my whining though. This week I want to share a few work outfits and a few play outfits. Please excuse my “summer hair,” AKA my “I am not going to even bother flat ironing until September hair!
I am really loving this outfit for a “casual summer” office look – it really looks and feels sooo summery. The skirt (size 0P) is from Loft, maybe 2-3 years ago. I picked it out today because I wanted to do something a little different than my normal pencil skirt uniform. Yeah, the skirt is a tad roomy, but with the white blouse (size XXSP), also from Loft, tucked in, everything fits very nicely. To complete the look, I wore a pair of wine-colored heels from BCBG and a grey and bronze necklace from H&M that I absolutely adore!
I also really love this outfit i wore to the office. Yes, it is a navy blue pencil skirt (Loft, size 0P) paired with a sleeveless blouse (Halogen, size XSP, from Trunk #2 Part 2), but since it is casual summer for the office until September, I went a little crazy with my shoes to make this work “uniform” a bit more interesting. The belt is a gold sparkly belt that I bought from Target 4 or 5 years ago, and the blur and white plaid shoes are from Nordstrom Rack.
On this day, I wore #LuLaRoe #Leggings right into the rotation. These are OS (one size), which, while comfy, are a tad big for this petite gal. It may be TMI, but they are a tad roomy in the crotch area, and I had to pull them up way above my waist (that the bump to the right of this picture pulled the leggings up to). So, I will probably stick to the tween size for leggings. The fit much better.
But, fit aside, you can’t really beat this print, blue and yellow, with a few red accents as well (which, sadly, are mostly on the back of these leggings). And to bring out the red (and to really get into color wheel dressing), I wore a red tank top from Old Navy and gold leather flip flops from Banana Republic. This really was a great outfit to wear on a day when I had to take my kids to morning swim practice, camps, and then soccer practice in the afternoon.
And here is another outfit feature something from #LuLaRoe! This is the #ClassicTee (size XXS). I love these tees because they are comfy and soooo soft. And yes, they are a oversized, but there are so many fun ways to tie these tees. This classic tee was a must-buy because of my favorite colors – maize and blue – GO MICHIGAN!)! i PAIRED THIS TEE WITH A PAIR OF J.Crew Factory skinny jeans, beige thong sandals from Nine West, and a bauble necklace in yellow, teal, and purple from Charming Charlie. This was the perfect outfit for a day outside with the kids.
And that is it for this week! I hope everyone has a safe and happy weekend!!
