Outfit Post: Labor Day florals

Hi lovelies,

I am officially working really hard to become the best me by my birthday this year. The best me I can be mentally and physically. As well as revert back to some of the good habits I used to have growing up. I will be talking a lot more about this in coming posts but with that said I will try to be the best blogger in the coming weeks as well. I still remember the time when I could do it all. When time and the length of my to do list didn’t matter. I took chores with a smile on my face and took pride in finishing them. I still remember friends asking how do I manage to hold 3 jobs and take 21 credits most semesters and now? sigh don’t even ask me what I am doing right now. I mean to some people I am still one of the busiest person around but I have known myself as a busier person and I’d like to be that busy cheerful person again.

Anyway enough of all this for now. Here is what I wore on Labor Day weekend. I seem to be enjoying DC a tad bit too much and keep getting drawn to it even on my days off. I have also gotten soooo used to just walking everywhere. Starting the new job I had this major fear of public transport and being stranded and now? I can just walk where I have to go instead, and then find back up options. Keeps one healthy and strong as well. Sooo we ended up in DC again and I took my hubby to Burger, Tap and shake, their burgers are delicious! And I will proclaim that they have the best onion rings I HAVE EVER HAD! The batter is delicious and the onions don’t get pulled out of the batter when you try to eat them. PERFECTION.

Anyway lately I have been on a streak of trying to find LONGER dresses and skirts and things that can be worn to work and still be cool and sexy enough to be worn out. This dress is a perfect example of such an outfit. It is floral but is neutral enough to be worn through out Fall and winter (like I care about that? I wear whatever colors I want through out the year because what works for you…should never be put away for next season). The dress is one of the million dresses I have bought that I am planning to shoot in a :work to night out” haul video. Unfortunately last time I was shooting my camera died midway so I have to finish recording the rest. Trust me I have been hard at work for you guys! The quality of the pictures got a bit pixelated because my hubby was trying out the new DSLR lens we bought. And they looked perfect on the small DSLR screen but when we pulled them up on the computer…I was thoroughly disappointed but the pictures from the next day with the right setting seems to have come out perfect which I would be posting soon as well. How was your labor day? and what did you wear?

Outfit Special: Working your Outfit at Work

Hi Sweeties,

As much as I like yo show you guys my fun and carefree side in my regular outfit posts, I realized a whole aspect of work outfits that I put on is missing. Most of the time it happens due to lack of time to take pictures and I am also not a big believer in wearing make up everyday of my life. It is only a weekend thing for me or when I go out to get togethers or special occasions.

My fave work attire consists of Pencil Skirts and my newfound love for blazers is still going strong from last year. I think I currently own about 6 blazers and I might just be adding a few here and there if I find the right fit and colors :). Anyway this was worn for a work event and I wanted to look a bit more polished hence the statement necklace and makeup. We took atleast a 100 pictures but I was squinting in every single one. My camera man husband loves natural light which means he expects to stare directly into the sun haha. Hence I only was able to find a few decent pictures.

Now with being able to wear dress shoes again the world of possibilities is endless this fall. What will I wear to work? Leggings? Tights? More pencil skirts? Skinny pants or dress pants? hmm why don’t you subscribe and find out.

PS: I am currently working on keep it classy at work so when I mentioned tights and leggings haha I mean to find appropriate ways of wearing them 🙂DSC06395
