What I Wore – Work Fashion

Belk Dress J Howard

Recently, my husband told me that I needed to add more color to my wardrobe. Since I work outside of the home, my colors mainly represent the college where I am employed. It is an easy routine to fall into but I do want to take my husband’s advice and add more color to my life.

As I was browsing at Belk.com, I found this J Howard sheath dress on clearance. The style, the fit, and the colors make me smile. The fabric is very comfortable which is very important since I wear a dress almost 10 hours a day.

This is a reminder to step out of your regular routine and purchase an item that goes against your wardrobe. It will bring extra smiles to your day and will give your wardrobe an extra lift. This is a brand that I had never heard of, but will be keeping my eye on when I am browsing at Belk’s.

As you can see, the styles are perfect for a pre-teen. A spin of NY fashion district for a pre-teen. This makes this mom very happy. You can be very stylish and still have conservative clothing choices. Limeapple showcases this with their different styles. To see the twinkle in my daughter’s eye, makes me smile very big. L is very picky with her clothing but has not taken off the first outfit since we got home from church. She keeps saying but it is so comfortable. We are confident when we say that your daughter will love these outfits as well.

Perfect Summer Cardigan {Jarrett Bay Clothing Co)

Living in the mountains in the summer can bring forth temperatures in the 80s during the day and 40s during the night. You just never know what type of weather will be in the evenings, so I always keep a light jacket and/or cardigan with me if I know we are going to be out and about.

Jarrett Bay Clothing Company recently reached out to me to offer to review their women’s cardigan. I jumped at the chance as I knew this would be perfect for the summer evenings. Also, I get cold very easy so it would be great for my very cold office at work.

Jarrett Bay Cardigan

This cardigan is so soft and lightweight.  The wood buttons on the front of the cardigan bring out a unique fashion twist that helps you either wear it as a casual cardigan or you can dress it up for an evening out on the town.

This past Friday night, we went out to play a round of putt-putt. I paired it with my black skinny jeans and added a gold necklace. It was perfect for the night.

The length is long-style in which in my opinion helps pair well with skinny jeans or a maxi skirt. Right now, you can purchase the cardigan for 50% off on Jarrett Bay’s website. Sangria, charcoal, and navy are your three color choices.

This is a NC-owned business and they have apparel for everyone in your family. If you are looking for a boat, no worries as they have boat options as well.

Bring it on cool summer nights. My cardigan and I will be best friends forever this summer!

Disclosure: I received a cardigan from Jarrett Bay Clothing Co in exchange for my honest review.

What I Wore Last Week – Work Fashion

As I told you last week, I am working on being more fashionable. It has been fun to see what outfits that I can throw together from my clothes in my closet. I didn’t buy any new apparel items this week as the week was pretty packed full. I think all the outfits turned out great. Thoughts?

Transitioning to Work Fashion

As I have transitioned into the work out of the home mom role, my fashion skills needed to be updated. Recently, they sent out an email at work that enforced the work dress code. This meant, no more wearing whatever jeans you pleased. If you did choose to wear jeans, it needed to be dark blue dress jeans. I needed an excuse to have more fashion in my life. My wardrobe didn’t include too many fashion must-haves but I am slowly changing this as I search the clearance sales and thrift shop sales.

I need to use my DSLR camera in the future. Made a mental note. Here are three of the outfits that I wore last week to work.

1. The jean skirt and the brown corduroy skirt are both J.Jill designs and came from Goodwill at the low rate of $3.75.

2. The “Be Amazing” sweater came from Old Navy clearance for $7.

3. The blue and white striped shirt and blue cardigan came from Belk’s clearance for $4 and $6 respectively.

4. The dress on the end came from Old Navy clearance for $11. I added the black belt that I had here at home and borrowed M’s cowl scarf.

How am I doing with my fashion? My husband is loving all the new outfits that I am coming up with which makes me smile and have butterflies in my stomach again. It is really so much fun to see how I can still be fashionable yet spend little money. Stay tuned for more frugal fashion finds!
