Real Life Wednesday.

Happy Wednesday friends!

I wanted to start a series where I shared "real life".  What we're really doing, what we're really wearing, things we're really using, or things we're really failing at.  ;)
 
So to kick things off, I thought I'd share a few work wear outfits this week - nothing super fancy, but some basic pieces that are comfortable to wear to work and professional enough for my office setting.
 
I work with farmers in an office setting, where jeans are appropriate - but I prefer to wear an outfit that's a step dressier.  So I don't know that I'd call my style "business casual" but it's a small step above "casual".  :) 

I also personally own and have purchased myself all of the items below, unless there is a "similar" next to it - then the piece I own is no longer available, and I'm linking to something similar enough that if I didn't already own that piece, I'd buy the one I'm linking to.  Sound good?
 
First up - I got two new cardigans this week from Nordstrom, and I especially love the Halogen Long Open Front Cardigan!  It is super soft, long enough to cover everything and it skims the backside. ;)
I need all of the skimming I can get right now, lol.

Sometimes you just need an item that makes you feel good - and this cardigan does it.  So much so, that I just ordered a second one in the "Green Gable" color yesterday.  I think it will work with grays & blacks for work, and then on the weekend I think it will look really pulled together while remaining comfortable while I'm out and about running errands with my favorite jeans, my favorite white tee & my super affordable leopard flats!


I can't wait for this to arrive!  Merry Christmas a little early to me.  ;)

Another quick & comfortable outfit I wore this week was just a scarf, my favorite Kendra Scott Elle earrings (I have them in four colors!), a cute LuLaRoe top (check out my friend Kati's page - she has GREAT inventory), a pair of ponte pants and my favorite boots.



Sometimes I buy leggings, but for work I prefer ponte pants.  They are thicker, and have texture so I feel like they're a little dressier for work.  The bonus is because they're thicker, they provide more coverage and you don't have to worry about any "see thru issues".   They stay up well, and I wear them like leggings - making sure I wear a top that hits high on the thigh and usually with a pair of boots.
Speaking of boots - for my friends with wide calves - I have tried A LOT of wide calf boots on, and Naturalizer boots not only zip every time but the leather is beautiful, and you can stand in them all day long.

I've owned 3 pairs over probably four years - I wear them almost daily in the winter, I love them that much.  They're totally a boot I buy every year - the price per wear has been well worth it!

What are some items that you're wearing lately that make you feel great?

  1. Oh I like the idea for this series! Also I might need to check out those boots. I had a HORRIBLE time this year trying to find a new pair. Wide calf varies so much! I like what I ended up with but didn't love them and had to get the dark brown because I couldn't find any in the lighter camel color that I was going for. Looking forward to more of these! As for me I have been loving clothes from the online retailer Filly Flair this year! They have some really fun stuff, but I have found a few really good staples solid color dresses that are great for mixing and matching and layering. And everything is pretty TTS. I also get the FitFabFun box subscription and the winter box had a poncho from BB Dakota that I basically want to be buried in someday.
