work wear week of july 25

I am excited to share with you my work wear from the week of July 25th! I hope everyone had a fabulous week and has fun plans for the weekend. I can not believe it is almost August. This summer is flying by. I am excited for August because that means it is birthday month, but it also means boards are only one month out so I will be studying non stop from now on. I am working on my birthday wish list so check back next week to see what is on my wish list and keep reading to see what I wore to work on the kiddos this week.

date night

My hubby and I both went out for a great dinner date last night in celebration of our upcoming vacation–yes, we find any excuse to go out to a nice dinner and have a date night!  We ate at one of our favorite Lawrence spots, Merchants.  It is in an old bank in the historic downtown Lawrence–It is one of our absolute favorite spots!

Here is what I wore:

Outfit Details: Romper–JCrew Factory // Shoes–Donald Pliner // Bag–Kate Spade // Sunglasses–Rayban

This romper is the only one I have found that is slightly modest and not too over-exposing–some of them are seriously so skimpy!  I love the romper trend this season and especially as it gets so hot, it is nice to have something that you can throw on quickly and go.  This romper is loose, silky, and lightweight.  The only thing that is an issue is if you are trying to go to the restroom, you are actually really trapped in this outfit!  I just have to keep it real!  I also am obsessed with Donald Pliner wedges.  These are so heavily discounted at Nordstrom Rack that it is impossible to pass on the great deal!  They are the perfect height so that they give you a little extra length but are still super comfortable to walk in.  I have been wearing my various Pliner wedges all summer.  They are one of my shoe staples.

I hope you are all having a wonderful hump day!  The week is halfway over//halfway beginning–depending on if you are a half full or a half empty kind of person!

pink tassel necklace

Pink and tassels…. need I say anymore?! As far as jewelry goes, this pink tassel necklace is perfection. Jamie and I both couldn’t resist it on our recent shopping trip and the minute we laid eyes on it in Lilly Pulitzer we were both in love. In fact, I put mine on in the store immediately after I purchased it (lame I know, but I couldn’t wait to wear it and it just so happened to look perfect with what I was wearing so clearly it was meant to be).

Jamie’s outfit: dress: jcrew // purse: kate spade

Brittany’s outfit: shirt: jcrew (on sale) // pants: lilly puitzer 

necklace: lilly pulitzer // purse: kate spade

This is such fun summer necklace and it combines two of my loves: pink and tassels so there wasn’t a chance I would be able to resist it. I really want to wear it to work but I am afraid it might be a bit much so I will resort to wearing it on the weekends.

Happy Shopping! xoxo -brittany

work wear week of july 18

TGIF! I thought I would share with y’all my work wear for the week of July 18th. I didn’t get a picture of my outfit on Monday because well, it was Monday, but I will do better next week I promise.

I love seeing other people’s outfits, especially what they wear to work, because it gives me ideas of new ways to style some of the things in my closet. Sometimes I will even look through the women’s fashion section of Pinterest to get outfit inspiration.

Most of my stuff I am not able to post links to since it has been purchased over the last couple years but I will try to find and link similar items. Some of the places I shop the most for work clothes are: JCrew, JCrew Factory, Target, Nordstrom and TJ Maxx.

Some of my favorite bloggers I follow to get outfit inspiration from are:

  • Sydney from Summer Wind – Sydney is so classy and I love absolutely everything she wears. It is seriously a problem because I frequently find myself purchasing the things she posts (like on a weekly basis). She features clothing and accessories in a wide variety of price ranges and her style is totally in line with mine. Her style is conservative and preppy yet it is still fun and youthful.
  • Julia from Lemon Stripes – Julia’s style I would also describe as conservative and preppy but a little more bright and colorful which I definitely appreciate. Her outfits tend to be a bit more casual but I always find myself inspired by her posts. She has the best accessories and her puppy is the cutest and I always enjoy when he makes his way into her posts.
  • I also have to give credit to one of my favorite bloggers who unfortunately no longer blogs but I miss her daily outfit posts dearly and she is a big inspiration for my work attire; Bows & Depos. She does still have an instagram page that you can follow and you will see she has the most classic, classy taste and I wish I could have her wardrobe.
  • Maureen from The Northeastern Girl – This is another blog I visit daily and consistently find outfit inspiration from and purchase from her posts. What I love about her posts is that she will often feature items from stores that I don’t look at on a regular basis.  She consistently has great finds at Gap and Loft and Banana that I would miss out on if I didn’t frequent her blog.

Do you have any favorite bloggers you think I need to follow? If so, please share.
