Work Clothes/ Play Clothes

Look at me, busting out with two fashion posts in a month! Sometimes finding time for my five minute fashion shoots on the front porch is easier than I think. Bless my dear husband for his willingness to snap these, even though he has me convinced that the neighbors are making fun of me for doing it. “Look honey, that strange lady across the street is pretending to be a model again.”

Play Clothes.

Can’t stop laughing at my hands crammed in these tiny cardigan pockets. Did I walk around like this all day? I can’t be sure, but I sincerely hope not. This was a weekend outfit, I can’t remember where we were headed but considering I picked out this ensemble, it must have been somewhere other than the grocery store or Target.

Work Clothes.

We’ve had a lot of temperate days this winter where it’s felt very fall like. I’ve taken advantage of it by extending my wear of three quarter length tops and exposed feet. I like this look. It’s a little matchy, but I felt put together in it.

Yeahhh. Got my partner in crime in this photo. (also, look at my dog Gibson getting in on the action!) I don’t know about these boots. In hindsight, I wish I would have chosen different shoes.

Play Clothes.

I don’t know why, but this pink/yellow combo still felt Christmasy to me. I wore this out to brunch and then we headed to a holiday gathering with my dad’s side of the family. It was another mild day by NC winter standards - 59*F, but for an extra layer, I wore knee length leggings underneath this midi skirt. I just wasn’t in the mood for tights.

Ok, just ignore everything else and look at these gorgeous tights…err…hose… thingies. I love them. LOVE love love them. This was Christmas day. Attempted to brush the frizzes out of my hair, slapped on some mascara and we were headed over to our best friend’s house. I kept wishing I had black booties to complete this look, but just tossed my brown ones on instead because I felt heels would be too dressy and flats weren’t funky enough to keep up with these tights.  Also, I got this comfy little skater dress recently and I find myself wearing it a lot. Super versatile for dressing up or down (and I mean DOWN down - I’ve worn it as pajamas a few times!)
