Blazer & boots to sweater & toes.

Too often I rush to get comfy when I get home from work. My poor husband sees me in sweats far more than he should! This outfit lets me dress it up at work and snuggle it down for wine and downtime at home.

Sweater- Forever 21
Blazer- Lollabella Boutique, SLC, Utah

I've been waiting for the perfect day to wear these gems! It's Friday, there is a chill in the air and work has been a bit stressful. I need a fun outfit to wear as I try to make it to the weekend!

Easy Cheetah!

Wow, I am feeling the animal print lately! Knowing I have a full day of work in Connecticut followed by a long flight back to Utah, today I was feeling my traditional work uniform. Screw business casual! The great thing about this get up is that after work I can change into my knee-high UrbanOG.com flat cheetah boots for the arduous journey back west.

It's going to be a long day:

Jeans- Bebe
Tank top- Nordstrom Rack
Scarf- Forever 21
Shoes- Super cheapies bought at one of those stores you frequent (while at the same time you hope you don't see people you know.) I think the brand is called City Classified.
Dog + husband- Missing them like crazy...

East coast office visit.

I'm a west coast girl through and through. I love a casual, chic (yet put-together) style that lets me express my personality while feeling trendy, professional, creative and fun all at the same time. However, whenever I visit the east coast (which isn't often), I somehow feel the need to be a bit more conservative. My office in Utah has a casual dress code and our Connecticut branch is the only office in our organization I know of that employs a business casual dress code. Business cas is so not me, I don't do slacks paired with button ups or cardigans over sheath dresses (Zzzz...I think I just nodded off). Here's what I put together today to satisfy my split personality mood...

Shorts- JCrew
Blazer + tank top- Nordstrom Rack
Tights- TJ Maxx

Scarf- Bought at a boutique called Whimsy in Park City, Utah

Red eye to NYC.

I hate flying! But that doesn't mean I'm going to put on a sweatsuit just to be comfortable. I like to dress nice when I travel. Typically I don't wear flats, but tonight I will be flying 5 1/2 hours through the night to wake up in New York City. Also, layers are super nice when transitioning from a cold plane to a warm destination.

Wheels up!

Soccer step mom.

Don't get me wrong, I love Lululemon clothes and when I inherited two step kids who are very active in soccer I get to view a weekly parade of soccer moms and their fancy yoga clothes. I'm not feeling it. Since I choose to spend my clothing dollars on pieces that don't make me feel guilty that I don't work out, it's always a challenge on Saturday mornings to get dressed. I try to take pieces from my weekly wardrobe and find ways to "cas" them up. A nice pair of flat sandals + a panama hat is the route I went today.

Hat- Panama from a boutique in Laguna Beach
Jeans- Hudson skinny rolled up
Shirt- Bought at Boheme boutique in SLC
Flip flops- Yellow Box
Dog- Missing... Likely getting into trouble somewhere

Game night at the sports bar.

I love to support my Utah Utes and was super excited when Victoria's Secret started carrying team gear in flattering women's cuts! A sexy t-shirt? Who would have thought! Also, I went with wedges because even though there are peanut shells on the floor of the bar doesn't mean I have to ditch my heels.

Changes to this morning's outfit:

Top- Victoria Secret Pink collegiate collection
Wedges- Target
Scarf- Forever 21
Dog #2- fawn pug

Casual (chic) Friday.

It's Friday! The day I typically ditch my blazer for a more comfortable look at the office. While others take "casual" very literally at my office, I prefer to maintain a polished look and save my sweats for bedtime. I just don't feel professional wearing flip flops and a hoodie!

Today's outfit mood:

Jeans - True Religion Julie cut
Sweater - Vince Camuto
Heels - Guess
Scarf - Old Navy
Watch - Michael Kors Runway in yellow gold
Dog - pug

Just another Thursday workday.

My typical workday uniform usually involves a blazer, heels and jeans. It can be a struggle to alter this look during the work week in order to have some diversity. Today I went for a more buttoned up and classic style; pairing an old Ralph Lauren blouse from my archives with a black blazer, skinny jeans, pearls and animal print pumps.

Blazer - JCrew
Blouse - Ralph Lauren (purchased probably 10 years ago at the Polo Factory Outlet)
Jeans - Hudson skinny
Heels - Nine West
Bag - Louis Vuitton Neverfull medium
Dog - pug
