Outfit Post + Yay! It’s a Giveaway: Working It with Well-Kept

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.

Outfit Post: All of the Brights

If you’ve been reading the past few weeks (rather than just skipping past my blabbering to the pictures… which you’ve probably already done if that’s you), you’ve heard me talking about trying to curb my spending to save up for our bathroom remodel.

I’ve stayed pretty strong, sneaking in the purchase of a seriously on sale dress but leaving behind some other pieces that were calling my name. It’s all about sticking to my budget and so far, so good. You’re probably thinking, what the what does this have to do with today’s post. Well, it explains why all of the items in this post are oldies but goodies from the back of my closet.

I’ve been trying to clean out and move around items in my closet – bringing some things in the back to the forefront to get them back into the rotation. This look includes three {seriously bright} items that have been spotted at least once before.

Oh and that big band-aid, it’s covering up a nasty leg injury I got while being a total idiot playing kickball. To clarify, not an idiot for playing kickball (love me some kickball)  but for sliding (not sure that’s really an accurate description for the action) into third base when the game was basically lost. Just in case you were wondering. If you’re not, carry on.

Outfit Post: Print Mix

Sometimes I put on an outfit, absolutely love it and then .. I see the pictures.

That’s kind of how I feel about today’s post but I figured I’d share it with you either way. Sometimes the posts I’m the least jazzed about are the ones that get more response so who knows. I’m willing to give it a go.

After picking up this skirt a week or so ago, I immediately rushed to wear it but rather than pair it with a simple tee (which I will probably be doing next time), I thought I’d mix it up a little. This shirt had been hiding in the back of my closet (since way back here) so I broke it out thinking a little print on print could be fun.

I’ll let you all make the final decision on whether it works (sometimes it’s a hit and sometimes it’s a miss).
