Monday Monday. After a solid weekend (the perfect mix of low-key and fun), I’m back to work for what is promising to be a hectic week (lots and lots of client events going on). That being said, I’m starting things over here off with a bit of a bang with a nice little giveaway for you all from Well-Kept - more on that in a minute.
When I’m looking at a busy day (after what will inevitably be a crazy morning trying to make it out of the house in one piece), I try and stick with a pretty basic uniform: skinny pants + easy, practical and polished top + wedges. This outfit is all of those things with a little twist on my normal get up. The cropped top (certainly no skin showing for me, at least not yet) isn’t something I normally gravitate to since I have a longer than normal torso. So a crop top can throw my proportions all out of whack. The looser, boxier shape of this one though hits at just the right spot and pairs well with the more fitted pants. It’s also the perfect weight for this not quite summer/not quite fall weather. So if you ever see me coming or going from work, you’ll more than likely see me in something like this.
Another thing you’ll see me dragging along is a bag packed to the gills with my work crap. Computer, multiple notebooks, phones (don’t ask me why I have two), my camera (try to keep it with me all the time) and possibly an iPad (that gets used to watch Disney Junior way more than to do actual work). With all those screens and the high likelihood that there is so form of snack debris on the inside of my bag, a pack of Well-Kept wipes comes in crazy handy.
I first got my hands on a pack a year or so ago to try and since then I’ve kept them in my desk drawer for those days when I eat lunch at my desk (yeah I know it’s kind of gross) or I notice some sort of impenetrable gunk on my phone. My poor iPad takes the worst of it and needs to have the jelly wiped off it on a regular basis.
The good folks at Well-Kept want you to enjoy not only a gunk-free screen but also a little shopping spree on them. So scroll all the way down to check out how I’ve teamed up with some of my favorite blogger pals (all my favorites are on board) to give you a chance to win a year’s supply of Well-Kept wipes + a $200 American Express gift card.
Polka-Dot Crop Top: ZARA (snagged it during the summer sale – these Forever 21 options are pretty similar here and here); Pants: J.Crew ‘Minnie’ in Navy; Nude Wedges: Sole Society; Bracelet: Gorjana & Griffin via Rocksbox (seriously, I heart Rockbox – check it out here); Bag: Longchamp; Sunglasses: c/o Sole Society

Wondering how I lug all that crap around (yeah I ask myself that every morning). This Sole Society bag has been a serious life-saver. Holds so much stuff and the pouch inside keeps me from having to dig around aimlessly for the little stuff. Now on to the giveaway fun. Enter as many or as few times as you like!
