The rain doesn’t want to stop but neither will I. I refuse to let the weather determine my outfits so I decided to throw in my favorite J.Crew umbrella to protect me from this lousy weather. This umbrella isn’t the only statement piece in this outfit post. I really think this flounce sleeve top and patched jeans are really the ones that catch people’s attention. I cannot express to you enough how much I love this simple combo. I wore this to a Rockies game with Wyatt and threw on a leather jacket because it was an evening game. People would stop me, asking me where I got my ‘over the top’ distressed jeans. I think every girl needs a pair because they really make outfitting so much fun. I love that laid back girly kind of look and I’ve been rocking it non stop so far this summer.
By the way, can you believe it’s already summer? I’ve been happier than normal and I think it’s because it’s finally my favorite time of the year. I’m a summer baby so I was born to love the sunshine. I just want to be outside all the time and I’m not an outdoorsy person. I think when the weather is amazing, you really just fall in love with everything all over again.
There’s a little bit of something sweet in this post. I can’t quite put my finger on it. I don’t know if it’s the nude, glossy lip or the frilly hair accessory but I think a look like this is perfect for my young, high school and/or middle school subscribers. This outfit won’t get you sent to the principles office for being inappropriate, that’s for sure. I know I’ve been sent there once or twice because I totally disagreed on the length of my shorts or dress but we’ve all been there right? This look is conservative, fun and once again…sweet. It’s great inspiration for my younger audience but I can definitely see this ensemble looking fabulous for all ages. I love how well chambray and mustard yellow mesh together. I think this specific color combo is ideal for Spring AND Fall. They are perfect transition colors to make outfitting a lot easier from season to season. Call me an outfit repeater but I’ll be wearing this look during the fall as well. Not to be corny, but I’m going to leave this post as it is, short and sweet. Talk to you all soon.

Work attire should LOOK like work but FEEL like a vacation. Nine to five in head to toe fabulous is what work attire should be (in my book). Say good-bye to hand-me-down grey blazers and uncomfortable pencil skirts. Dressing professional is so different nowadays. I really think corporate businesses are more accepting of personalized work attire. If this isn’t true in your case, it’s a bummer you’re boss is a stickler. As long as your outfit incorporates these four things: professionalism, sophistication, conservatism, and a sense of drive…I don’t see the problem in expressing who you are in the corporate world. Nothing is more inspiring to me than seeing a woman work her little booty off all day long, 5 days a week in heels. Dressing nice is just proof that you have good taste and what boss wouldn’t appreciate that? I think people gain more respect when they take the time to really elevate their appearance. You’re colleagues will automatically feel threatened which I think in the “dog eat dog world” isn’t such a bad thing. If you wanted to step up your work game just add a sophisticated black blazer to this look and you’re golden.
Once you have a better outlook on dressing for your 9 to 5 job, you’re gonna look and feel you’re best and that just leads to more promotions, gigs, jobs, and SUCCESS! Go get ’em ladies (and gents).
