So remember a few weeks ago I went to a consignment store and walked out with 3 DVF wraps? Yeah…
Anyhoo, here’s the second one in action. It’s finally cool enough to wear long sleeves so I threw it on.
Rockin’ it with some gold jewelry…maybe I need to expand my gold jewelry closet a bit? I just can’t get enough of my Michael Kors watch!!
And I’m totes lovin’ these pumps…MISSONI for Target! Word!
(yep. Those are fishnets. This building is just too cold to not have something on my legs!)
Many thanks to East of Town once again for her master photo skills!
So, it’s Friday and I’m leaving after work for a retreat. I wanted to wear something comfortable for the drive but that was still work appropriate for a Friday.
I bought these olive pants at J.Crew a few weeks ago and I’m LOVING them. They are so super comfortable that I’m thinking I need to own them in all colors. I’m also totally diggin the pink/olive combo.
A little arm party is always a must!!
And I love these shoes for traipsing around in. Comfortable and stylish. I’m sorry, but sometimes it’s really hard to do heels on a Friday. I’m tired of being so bound.
(Like my super nice government carpet?!)

I love Fridays at work. It’s like the day of the week where I don’t have to look super businessy and I usually use it as an opportunity to be a bit more daring in my wardrobe. It’s friday!
However, there are some people who take casual Fridays to mean, “oh great! I get to look like a slob!” Uh, no you don’t and I’m totally offended to be seen around you. Here are some no-no’s for casual Friday.
I tried out a new consignment boutique yesterday (Dress in Raleigh) and fell in love! I’ve been in them before but long before I got super into fashion. Yesterday, I could’ve blown a paycheck. Instead, I walked out with three DVF wrap dresses. So sue me!
I paired them with some funky heels courtesy of ShoeDazzle (Thanks Kim Kardashian!)
And because I like to be goofy at work…
Thanks to East of Town for her master photography skills!!
With Irene quickly approaching I am reminded that fall is just around the corner and I’m not ready. I love summer, especially in the South. Call me crazy but I love the heat. You know it’s hot so getting dressed is so easy. Slip on a summer dress and a pair of sandals and you’re ready to go. Plus, I love how I look a bit thinner with a tan.
I decided to pull out one of my favorite summer dresses before it must retire for the season.
Please ignore my closed eyes…thanks! I got this dress from Gilt.com about a year ago and luuurrrvve it! The color is so very summeryand I’m in love with the neck detail. And if anyone knows me, they know I pair anything with large jewelry such as the watch you see. Really, it could be bigger.
I’ve wanted to start a personal style blog for some time now. That was the original intention of this blog and to prove that just because you work in government and not fashion, doesn’t mean you can’t be fashion forward. However, I don’t have a good camera nor a decent camera phone. Alas, I have upgraded phones and with all the fancy apps out there, I can now start a blog.
I preface this outfit to say that I’ve been broke lately which means no shopping excursions for me. I have been able to remix and restyle things in my current wardrobe as well as take advantage of others’ closets.
I have been dying for a long black maxi dress all summer. This one came courtesy of my mother. It’s linen and when paired with a belt, takes on a completely different look. Perfect for these hot Carolina days.
My favorite thing to do is accessorize with BIG jewelry and usually lots of it. This neck candy came courtesy of East of Town. It’s the perfect pop of color!
