H&M Work Wear Try On

Hey lovelies!

I have a TON of work travel this month because of conferences and I realized that I haven’t bought new work clothes in AGES. So I made a little trip to H&M and photographed a work wear try on to inspire y’all to do a spring refresh on your work wear!

First up is a blouse that I liked so much that I bought! I’ve been all about yellow recently and this too was so springy and comfy I couldn’t resist. (Truth: I have this exact same top in 2 other patterns 😬)

Similar long sleeve top – $15

This outfit is so stinking cute! Add a pair of nude or black flats and you are work day ready. These pants run a little small so I would size up one, I’m wearing a 6 here but I definitely would have bought an 8. The top is true to size and I am wear a small.

Tie front blouse – $35

Slacks – $15

These photos do not do the color of the dress justice. It was such a pretty olive/army green that is very on trend for spring this year. TTS, wearing a size 6. $25

Loved this dress so much I tried it in the yellow version too! $25

I cannot tell you how much I love this outfit! This whole outfit came home with me. Medium in the skirt and small in the top TTS

Blouse – $15

Skirt – $35

This one was a strong contender in the “come home with me” category but sadly limited funds means limited choices.

Not the exact but very close – $35

Another similar – $15

Last but not least, this super cute dress. This would be perfect if your office is a little more fancy than casual.

$35

Stay tuned in two weeks for how I styled the 3 pieces that I picked up today!

Happy shopping, lovelies!

Heart eyes over heart patches 😍

Hey lovelies!

I’m thinking all things Valentine’s Day and I saw that Dede from @dreasupbuttercup got this sweater and fell in love!! Especially when I found out it was only $22!!

For this casual look, I paired it with this cranberry jumper dress and my fave black riding boots. This outfit would be cute for a casual workplace or lowkey evening outing. Not to mention I plan on wearing this until the GA heat returns since it’s not overly Valentines-y!

Let me know what you guys think and if you’d like a link to this cutie!

P.S. I also styled it for for a fancier evening look and I fell even more in love

Festive Jammies!

My family never had a Christmas pajama tradition. We woke up in and ran down the stairs in whatever was on us and tore into presents. However, as an adult (and with the invention of social media) I can absolutely appreciate the picture potential of a whole family in coordinating jammies around a Christmas tree. I definitely think that it’s a tradition that I want to start when I have children.

That being said, here are some super great options for festive jammies if your family has a pajama tradition.

Women’s Plaid PJ set – $20

Super cute traditional option.

Santa, I tried 4 piece set

Hahaha enough said.

Flannel PJ set – $30

These would be great all winter long!

Red Pajama set – $30

These are unfathomably soft! They also come in gorgeous Christmas tree-green!

Reindeer leggings – $16

These are so cute and totally count as PJs that can be worn out side the house!

Alright, I know this isn’t me normal content but I saw this and the matching adult PJs below and I literally couldn’t help myself. This is so stinking cute!

Buffalo Check baby onesie – $30

Women’s Buffalo Check PJ set – $60

Men’s Buffalo Check PJ set – $60

Toddler Buffalo Check PJ set – $40

Happy shopping lovelies!

Asking for a friend

I love the holidays; all of them. This time of year feels so magical and full of possibility. I think that everyone should have a sense of childlike wonder about the holidays. However, one of the things that really stresses me out about the holidays is decorations. I want to be one of those people that transforms their home into a spring dream or a winter wonderland. But I’m a girl who *tries* to stick to a budget and who lives in an apartment that I know I’m going to move out of in the next year or two. None of that is really cohesive with *that* person. BUT I do like to add some seasonal flair to my apartment and I am working on adding some more adult touches to my home.

However, I feel like this is an in between time where I want to celebrate fall and Christmas all at once. So, can you celebrate both at the same time? …I’m asking for a friend?

Tray: Hearth & Hand for Target

Candle: Haven Street Candle Co – Aged Applewood

Pumpkins: Home Goods (sadly sold out)

Happy decorating, lovelies!

Real talk in teal Corduroy

The other night I went out to dinner for my Brunswick bestie’s birthday. It was a small little dinner with a few friends and significant others. I wanted to pull together a look that was “fall-y” since we were finally having some cooler weather.

So I pulled out a pair of jeans that I don’t think I’ve worn in probably 6 months. I truthfully don’t know how to feel when I tell you that they were uncomfortable to be in or to look at myself in. I could zip them but there was a significant amount on “muffin top” going on. These amazing teal corduroy bell bottoms were the only long pants in my closet that would fit me.

As some one who has struggled with an eating disorder this is almost something to be proud of. However, I’m not proud. I’m annoyed that it means that I’ve been slacking off going to the gym even though it’s something that makes me happy. I know that it means that I need to add more veggies to my weekend diet and drinking less the whole week.

So as I write this I am wearing gym clothes because I did a 30 minute treadmill interval workout, I had a salad for lunch and chicken noodle soup for dinner. I’m making my way back to balance as opposed to leaning heavily into restriction or indulgence.

The first outfit I put together was not exactly suited for 70 degree weather so get ready to see that later on this year but I did up putting together a fall-friendly outfit that still made me over dressed for my BFF’s birthday dinner (and I didn’t care one bit!).
