Happy start to the weekend friends! Its Friday! So glad the sun is deciding to stay out a bit more these days.  You are probably wondering what all this white coat non sense is about? Lets face it, this as close as I will get to wearing a ‘white coat’.  You know, in doc terms. Ha! Well, if you have been around the blog a while you know I love a good blazer for the office.  Today was no exception, I needed something to bring light to this outfit since the dress and boots were dark.  I am still not to sure how I feel about this combo, but all that matters is I rocked it thinking it looked pretty edgy. What do you guys think? Yay? Nay?  By the way, olive green is one of my favorite colors to wear in the fall and winter months, but for some odd reason I do not have many pieces in my wardrobe.

Ladies, might I add that these boots are on sale for $30! Yes, a pair of black over the knee boots for $30, score! I absolutely love these boots. They are a bargain compared to the $500 plus pair of Stuart Weitzman we have all been drooling over. As for these new beauties, my sunglasses, I was so happy to find them this past weekend at TJMaxx. From the moment I saw Karen Walker’s awesome sunglasses I was in love, but could not cough up that kind of cash for sunglasses.  Lets be real, over $200 a pair does not fit with my ‘real girl’ budget. Who is with me??  So these beauties will work just great and only cost $10! Awesome! Be sure to check back early next week to see another great deal I scored on a winter coat!

Have a great weekend!

XOXO,

Bonjour! No, I do not speak French, but keep reading to see why I just wrote bonjour. Black and white stripes are one of my favorite patterns to date. Not only do I love black and white stripes on clothing pieces, but I also love stripes in home decor as well. Looking around my home office right now, I see three pieces off hand that are all black and white stripes. Over board? Nope. I think not! Just wait until our guest bathroom gets a make over. I am seeing black and white stripes in its future? Lets move on before I start another home project. 🙂

This specific black and white striped shirt is currently on sale at Old Navy. I picked it up last weekend for less than $10. Score! As for these faux leather pants, where to start….. I. Love. Them. It took me a very long time to decide on the best pair of faux leather pants to add to my wardrobe. I had these specific H&M pair on my radar for a few months before I picked them up. Lets face it, these days I will take any pair of pants that makes my rear end look good!

Sorry for the extra touch of blur to the photos. This might be one of three things. 1. My photographer was slacking on this photo shoot and this is what I have to work with from that slacker. 2. The stupid sun going down at 5PM is not working with my schedule. ughhhhh 3. The photographer, my husband, and I were too busy imitating what ‘things’ this outfit resembled. My husband said I just need a berea and Paris streets. Okay, I am ready! We are going to Paris? Okay, maybe NOT, but one day I will make it to Paris. I thought mime or gondolier?

How many of you have a black and white obsession too? Anyone?

Bon Voyage!

Office Wear For A Gloomy Day

Thursday Work wear

Thursday Work WearIt was a gloomy day here in Indianapolis. Todays office wear are some of my favorite basic pieces. I have owned this H&M menswear blazer for a few years now. It will be a great piece for the cooler months. Allows me to bring a menswear inspired piece to my wardrobe. Short and sweet post today!

Thursday Work Wear

I gave my black denim a quick roll up. By showing just a bit of my leg, it helps break up my denim and booties so they do not blend together.
