Work Week Chic

Little known fact: I went to a private school and had to wear a polo shirt and pleated khaki skirt every.single.day of high-school. I became an expert in the field of following the dress code while still making a statement (that, and changing clothes in the car). I didn't realize it at the time, but those were skills I'd carry with me into my career!

These days, my dress code is significantly better and easier to follow, but I still have to be mindful of my work attire. When dressing for work, I always choose one part of my outfit as "the statement piece" and build everything else around it. Sometimes I work around a pair of pumps, sometimes its a scarf or blazer, and other times its pants or a fun skirt. Today, it was these jogger pants from Tobi. You may recognize my top from this blog post when I dressed it down for a casual Saturday vibe with cut offs, but I think it works equally as well for a "work week chic" look!

Friday Favorites

Friday, August 18, 2017
Friday FriyYAY! We made it to the weekend! This has been one of those weeks where I have been sleeping like a rock and baaaaarely able to open my eyes and crawl out of bed each morning. I cannot wait to sleep in tomorrow (until 7:45, that is 👵🏼) and wake up slow while sipping coffee on the couch. My fav!

I have done "Friday Favorites" posts a few times before - I like to be able to talk about what's going on in my actual life from time to time for any friends or family members who read my blog. I also think it gives new readers a glimpse into who I am outside of blogging! I love it when other bloggers do this - it makes me feel like they're my real life friends haha. What do you think? Do you like this kind of post or would you rather see food, fashion, fitness or travel? I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Without further ado, here's my Friday Favs: August Edition!

Let me just tell ya.....there is a reason Austin is the food capital of the Lone Star State....I hope you're hungry! 

A.OK Braid Tutorial

Good morning and Happy Friday, ahhh!!! I've gotten a lot of comments on my braids recently so I thought I'd share a little tutorial on fishtail braids and inside-out french braids. It is seriously so easy once you figure out what to do. It takes me no time at all and is perfect for days when I don't wash my hair. It can completely change your look, giving it just the right amount of quirkiness, coziness, or class, depending on how you style it!
