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!
