~Friday Outfits~

I am so glad this week is almost over. It had some challenges so I am looking forward to a fun weekend with my family and oh yah, a big race!

Since I am struggling with the return-to-work routine (as expected), I am trying to focus on the positive things that get me excited each day! I have been enjoying putting together new work outfits from my existing wardrobe, with a few new pieces added in. A lot of these items are old but since it's been 2 years since I have worn them they seem new to me!

To prove that I do wear pants to work occasionally:

 I forgot about these wedge heels! They are a nude/blush colour with a gold buckle. I just love them! So comfortable! Love finding lost treasures in the closet!

 My $10 dress from Target I bought back in the fall when I was in Phoenix (Oh, how I wish I was there right now!). It was too big in the top so I did some amateur hand-sewing and it fits! I would never wear it without a sweater so it doesn't matter that it isn't perfect. No one can tell! I love the ruffles and the colours.

Now Target, hurry up and open in my city ASAP!

 I adore lace and coral! The shirt is newer- from H&M but the pants and sweater are old. I also bought the necklace while Christmas shopping. I have a lot of luck finding nice, inexpensive jewellery at the Banana Republic outlet.
I did my hair a bit differently using Kate from The Small Things Blog's latest tutorial for Triple Topsy Tail Pony. It didn't turn out exactly like Kate's but I got a lot of compliments on it so I'll do it again. It's fairly easy and a nice change from the every day look.

 I'm not too sure about this outfit. The shirt is newer (Old Navy $7!)  and while I love the bright colour and print, the keyhole (you can't see it that well here) is a bit annoying. I wore a tank top underneath but it bugged me how it would stick out and I felt like I was adjusting my shirt all the time. Maybe next time I will wear it un-tucked with a belt.

Old but a favourite. This sweater from Banana Republic is so soft and such a vibrant colour.

As you can tell, I am getting lots of wear out of my new Nine West black and nude pumps.


  1. I like your outfits :-D
