I love to dress up and put on make up and weaves as much as the next person, but usually on a day to day basis my motto is “The more comfort, the better”.
But, as much as I love to share with you my latest take on a smokey eye
or the latest in cocktail dresses that I have acquired..
I thought, now would also be a good time to show you what type of outfits I normally wear to work.
I like to say that my fashion sense is based on my personality.
It has evolved into something I like to call, expect the unexpected.
I mix patterns and colors like no other- and it comes from a “not matching IS matching” philosophy that I have these days. I used to be that girl that had to wear the brown belt because my handbag was brown.
Thank God for deliverance!
I am a risk taker when it comes to my threads, but in no way am I a fashion blogger or a fashionista. I can’t keep up or afford any trends.
Not even a Maxxinista – shopping there makes my head hurt.
Just like Target is pushing this “Everyday Collection” campaign…
It’s the same as I see myself and my outfits.. its Every day things that I swear any other normal person would wear. One thing you won’t see on my blog is “haul” posts. I think when I graduated from college, shopping sprees stopped because responsibilities started. Now that I am approaching my tenth year college reunion, anything I buy these days I have reasoned in my head about a million times before purchasing – no more impulse buys (except on occasion) and if the line at the register is too long for my patience then I will not be getting what I want on that particular day- it just wasn’t meant to be.
And thus – my Everyday Collection.
Yup I wore this to work… Today is like 2 degrees outside
This is Business Casual right?!
I rarely wear make up in the office and of course there are certain rules to wardrobe for our Agency (some of which I broke today for the sheer fact that its literally two degrees outside). But never fear, your girl always has a spare of black pumps and stockings in the office drawer for those official emergencies like running to court or meeting with the bosses. But I do not get dolled up in my defense because of the demographic that I work with- not to say that all officers take this approach, but I really just can not handle dealing with compliments or cat calls from the offenders whom I supervise. Maybe later on in my career- not this soon though.
