Happy Friday my loves!  Friday has to be my favorite day of the week. Anyone else? Everyday you should love what you put on and today I absolutely loved all these pieces I paired together for my look.  Most of these are pieces I have owned for quite sometime and just decided to pair them together.  I am loving where these pants hit on my leg and think I need more pants that hit right above the ankle bone.  To put a little prep in my step today, I chose to wear these nude heels to work with this new comfortable blazer I scored on sale.  I did change into my ‘shoreline’ white converse for a relaxed date night look after the office. Sorry I did not get a picture of those beauties, but they will be tested out this weekend.  Anyone notice a little change of scenery? We decided to do a impromptu photo session near my work today. Loving these warmer temperatures!  Who has big plans for the weekend? Anything fun?

If you follow me on Instagram, here is the new red lip color I picked up this past weekend. As you know I have been on the hunt for the perfect red lip and I have found it!  I posted a quick shot of it this past week over on my Instagram.  Be sure you are following me on Instagram for daily updates from me! @mybrunetteadventureblog

Skirt: J.Crew Factory (on sale + extra 40% off)  (here)  ||  Top: New York and Company (old)  ||  Blazer: Express (similar)  ||  Shoes: Aldo (old) (love these)  ||  Necklace: Forever21 (old) (similar)  ||  Tights: H&M (here)

Brrrrrrrr! It is very cold here in the Midwest and we are trying to keep warm. If you live somewhere nice and warm, I envy you right now. Palm trees, sunshine and sand in my toes sounds perfect right about now. I guess for the time being, we will stick with dark skies, warm boots and snow beneath our feet.

With it being winter, office wear is the last thing I want to put on for the blistering cold.  However, it can be done to create a stylish work outfit. Winter whites are a favorite of mine this season and this wool skirt is a perfect addition to my winter wardrobe.  This skirt is currently on sale plus an additional 40% off! That is a major deal so head over to J.Crew Factory to take a look at their sale items.

There are so many ways to incorporate winter white in with your other winter pieces. I simply went very office appropriate with tights, heels, a burgundy top and blazer to top it off. Of course, my black winter coat was not far to help keep me warm. This was our coldest shoot to date! Brrrrrrrr! I also apologize for those few winkles on my skirt. 🙂 After a day at the office, it happens, right ladies?

How will you wear your winter whites? Would you like to see a winter white casual look?

Stay Warm,

Jessica

I hope your week is starting off great. Monday is over so it is only up hill from here, right?

The struggle of putting together work attire can be stressful. It does not have to be difficult. Start with basic pieces and pieces that can mix well with one another. Todays post include a few basic pieces.

This fairly new soft pink sweater from Old Navy is a great piece that will take me into winter. I can get very hot wearing sweaters indoors. This sweater is not bulky for wearing indoors at work and can serve as a layering piece during the colder months. If you have yet to add sweaters to your fall wardrobe, I would suggest they be at the top of your basic pieces for fall and winter.

Another basic piece that should already be in your closet is a trench coat. A trench coat works for fall and spring. I have owned this trench coat for years. It is perfect for chilly days and when you are not quite ready for your heavy wool coat. Trench coats are a staple piece that will not go out of style.

Do you own a trench coat already? If so, what do you pair with your trench coat? 

XOXO,

Jessica
