Working with Style…or lack thereof
So the lovely ladies over at Liberating Working Mom (just love this blog) started a new series to see what working moms are sporting to the office. I love the idea because as much as I love Mandy’s Stepping Out Saturday, I think people would be tired of ‘Target clearance rack’ and flip flops. Now while I wouldn’t refer to my work outfits as “stylish” all the time, I thought I would throw my hat in the ring.
Now we are casual where I work. We are kinda known for it. I could wear sweatpants and no one would really care. I stay in my office most of the day and maybe go to the gym and or cafe. Back in the spring, I got a little jealous of all you lovely ladies on the interwebz and your styles and decided I needed to step it up. So with a few trips to the rich consignment shop and hand me downs from my coworker Allison and her twin sister, I decided to try and spruce it up. I went to yard sales for jewelry and got some staples at a big Loft sale. Just enough to mix and match and never spent over $20 on an item.
So I decided to show you 2 outfits from the week. Super lazy, dressed up:
I linked up with Liberating Working Moms new “Working with Style” this week.

Loved both articles. When we moved to Denver and I started the job I have now I thought fantastic I can wear jeans everyday. Well after 3 years I am tired of wearing jeans. Yes I just said that. I work in the office at a warehouse and don’t really want to dress up because I work around dirty parts and I could ruin a nice outfit. Sometimes I think it would be nice to work some where, where I could wear jeans or dress up depending on how I feel. Although if I get an ‘office’ job I will definitely need to go shopping.
Wait a minute. Your necklace is from the hardware store? Did you make it, or does your hardware store sell jewelry??
The one in the town of our vacation home has jewelry made by locals. I have a lot from there. Unique and cheap.
That’s really neat and quaint. I love stuff like that.
I live in my ash gray Toms! I get to wear jeans at work, but I try not to do it all the time, but the Toms go so well. And I love that blue shirt. Thanks so much for joining in the Working With Style fun. Can’t wait to see next week’s outfit 🙂
Yeah what is funny is the LWM badge for this looks exactly like an instagram photo I took of mine a few weeks ago!
Both of my kind of looks! And your legs? Holy sexy mamacita! : )
