31 October 10 - Traveling Scarf

When Kimberly of Fab Finds Under $50 asked who wanted to participate in the next round of the Traveling Scarf, I wanted to try it out! I missed the last two rounds and was hoping I was able to participate. She even helped us out by pointing out the fact that Affordable Scarves was sponsoring the scarf and their new project had videos of 37 ways to wear a scarf!

I literally watched every video for the rectangle long scarf. I really liked the knot row and rosette neck wrap method and those had not been done before. I live in Houston and our fall weather hasn't really started yet. I didn't want to have a scarf wrapped around my neck when the temp was 85 degrees. The scarf has been worn as a one loop scarf, knotted, double looped, a low tie, in a bow, draped then belted, head scarf, and even a shirt (I was actually thinking about this one)! How many more ways could I think of? As a necklace! I've worn a scarf as a necklace before and wanted to try again.

I found the center of the scarf and tied a knot in it, I then separated the other halves and tied a knot on either side of the middle knot. I wanted the "necklace" to not have too much bulk so I twisted the scarf a bit and then tied it in a knot for the back. I then slipped the brooch pin under the middle knot and viola! I hope you like it!

Outfit Details:
White tank - Target
Yellow Cardi - Loft
Grey Jeans - Faith21
Miami Scarf - Affordable Scarves

19 July 10 - Oh Monday!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! This tank is a great find over the weekend at Loft's 50% off sale items, it ended up being $10, unfortunately, it's not online anymore. Did you find any great sales this weekend? I spent some time in Loft and then Target! I didn't get this cardigan from Loft, but they did have something very similar to this recently and I think the only difference was the print, Loft's was a zebra stripe, but this is a leaf pattern.

Outfit Details:
Pink and white dotted tank - Loft
Pink leaf print cardigan - Target
Grey pinstripe pants - Old Navy
Grey ruffle T-strap pumps - Target

6 July 10 - Let's Try a Dress

I haven't worn a dress for a while to work because for me, dresses are just so much work. Assets - check, shaved legs - check, hem long enough for office - check, covered bust area - check....dress it is. With pants, I don't have to worry about any of the previously mentioned things. I admire those bloggers and people who don't feel the need to wear Assets/Spanx/something to smooth and suck you in, but I'm just not one of those people. I don't care how flowy the dress or skirt, I'm wearing something under it.

I'm also stepping out of my comfort zone a bit with the flutter sleeves - not exactly sleeveless, but definitely, not much coverage. Depending on where you work, this could be a no-no. But since it's summer and my office is pretty business CASUAL, I'm fine. Since I've put on weight, my arms aren't my favorite body part, but I'm just going to get over it. I know I don't talk about any one's arms unless they are super toned and tight so no one will be giving me a second thought. Sometimes you just have to get over your insecurities and focus on other positive things like these hot pink patent heels. This is the 3rd time in the 5 years I've had these that I'm wearing them. They might be a bit over the top, but I love them!

Outfit Details:
Cami - Faith 21
Dress - Old Navy (from like forever ago)
Pink patent peep toes - Newport News
Gold leaf earrings - Forever 21

17 June 10 - Not Quite Casual Friday

It's Thursday, but here at my office, most people (excluding me) work flex time and typically are somewhat casual on Thursday's as well since some Thursday's are their Friday's (confused yet?). I decided to dress somewhat casual today and the only thing I really absolutely love about the summer heat in TX is wearing gauzy white tops during these super hot months.

Another bad iphone photo, but I really liked my outfit, so I had to do it. I took some close ups once I got to the office (w/my iphone) so you could see the actual colors and details of my outfit. In my outfit picture, my belt is a little higher than my actual waist but I didn't have time to fix that before snapping the pic...I'm out the door and on my way to work w/my iced chai in hand! Have a great day!

Outfit Details:

Nude cami (not seen, but absolutely necessary for a gauzy top!) - AGX
White top - Old Navy
Chambray crops - NY and Co
Shoes - Nine West
Belt - Target
Sunnies - Old Navy
Purse - JCPenney (it's grey)
