Work It Wednesday No.13

Happy Hump Day! Man has this been a long week! Let's just say I thought yesterday was Thursday and that's never a good thing ;) But I'm so happy it's Wednesday; I can't wait to see what you ladies link up with this week! Here's my look for work.

Who worked it best last week? It was a tough choice, you ladies all looked amazing!

I'm in love with this color palette! The orange is just gorgeous! And that blazer is the perfect touch to make the look work-appropriate.

I few shots from the weekend before last (this past weekend was my "black weekend" meaning I was on call Saturday and post call day - no days off)! But had fun at the hospital and looking forward to a three-day weekend soon! 

P.S. Get excited for another round of Work It Wednesday tomorrow! Spread the word!

Work It Wednesday No.12

Happy Wednesday everyone! Little secret about today's look - I didn't actually end up wearing it to work! I planned on it but after washing and drying this skirt a few times it's a little too short in my opinion to be work-appropriate. So sadly I threw on trousers after coming to this realization, but I figured just for the blog I'd share my original outfit because I really do like it more, if only my skirt were 2 inches longer (that's what I get for throwing it in the dryer so many times). On the hunt for a new black pencil skirt! Suggestions?

Skirt, Wet Seal
Pumps, Zara

Thanks so much to those of you who linked up last week, your looks were fabulous! So who worked it best? 

Even in the thumbnail I was immediately drawn to the proportions in her outfit - perfect! The shape and wash of her jeans are perfect for business casual or dress down day at work. The flowy red top adds a pop of color and hits at her hips in just the right spot! And her fitted white blazer is too chic! 

Link up with us this week so we can see what you wear to work! Make sure to include the link back to this post so your readers can see everyone's look! Thanks so much for participating!

Snap pictures of what you wear to work today or this week and link up with us starting tomorrow!

A Little Bit of Weekend

Happy Monday everyone! This week will be a looong week for me (on call tonight and on call Saturday - which means no time off next weekend) so I made sure to enjoy the weekend I had! I went home to surprise my mom and grandma for mother's day and did lots of eating out!

Work It Wednesday No.11

Happy Wednesday everyone! You know what Wednesday means - time to Work It! This week's look is a bit more casual (I actually wore it for date night this weekend) and is featuring my favorite shirt I mentioned yesterday.
Shirt, Old Navy
Pants, Gap
Pumps, Guess
Clutch, gift

I loved all of your looks last week! I'm always amazed by your creativity and equally humbled that so many of you link up with us every week! Ok enough mushy stuff... who worked it best last week?

Everything about this is right! Her blazer fits her perfectly, those cropped turquoise pants are gorgeous, the leopard print shoes, the necklace, I could go on! You look amazing Nic! Thanks so much for linking up your looks to Work It Wednesday so often! xx

Link up with us this week below! Make sure to include the link back to this post so your readers can see all the other amazing looks!

Casual Green and Black

A simple outfit I wore for running errands and doing a bit of shopping. This black jersey utility shirt is quickly becoming one of my favorite pieces in my closet (I wore it last here traveling to Cancun) and tomorrow I'll show you how I dress it up a bit for Work It Wednesday! I hope you ladies snap pictures of your looks and link up with us! 
This shirt from Old Navy is perfect! Usually I wear an x-small there but I bought this shirt in a medium because I wanted it to fit more loosely and have that cool relaxed feel. I was looking for a shirt like this for a while and most of the ones I found ranged from $60 up - and no way will I ever pay that much for a shirt! This one? $20 well spent ;)

Top, Old Navy
Jacket, JCPenney

{P.S. I'm laughing at myself in the last pic for wearing sunglasses inside. Who does that? I just wanted to show you the whole outfit but it's ridiculously silly wearing sunglasses indoors.}

Friday's Fancies: Going to the Derby!

Who am I kidding I'm not going to the Derby. I have no idea what it's about (well I know it's a horse race, and that it's tomorrow). But I do know that most of the people there are just going to wearing a big hat. At least that would be my reasoning for going - that and to have an ice cold Mint Julep (the official Derby drink). If you came with me to the derby, which outfit would you wear? 

Happy Friday! I hope you all have fabulous weekends!
