Hey lovely people! I have to make this a really quick post because it’s already 10:49 pm and I still have a bunch of crap to do before bed. I just wanted to show my 6th “Home Office Style” look. Wowza! It’s the Nov 9 and I have successfully dragged my butt out of bed and put on real clothes for no one but myself for 6 out of 9 days. I could get used to this. So far, here are the benefits of getting dressed for my home office:
- I am DEFINITELY more likely to go out and
shoprun errands on my lunch break.
- I am also more likely to go out after work. Last Friday, my girl Baby Shopaholic called me to meet her downtown at the last minute. Since I had already gotten dressed for the day, I grabbed my bag and was out the door in 10 minutes! There was no fretting about what to wear.
- I just feel better when I pass a mirror! (that’s gotta be worth something, right?)
- I am already noticing that my styling muscles are getting back in gear, and I am picking out my outfit for the day much quicker!
All in all, I have to say that I do believe that “getting dressed” daily has been beneficial. Who knows, I may never go back to my lounge pants (well, that is with the exception of days like this past Monday LOL).
H&M Sweater (old) | Express Faux Leather Pants (sold out, but these are similar) | H by Halston “Blythe” Wedges via Bakers ($59.99 on sale now + extra 25% off with code PSW25) | Curly in the City Clutch | Champagne Pendant Necklace c/o Mimi’s, the Look for Less | Wooden Bangle via Beauty Supply
Okay, now let’s talk briefly about the shoes! I. LOVE. THEM. Okay, so the truth is I had been coveting these Theyskens’ Theory Wedges, which retail for $465. Yeah, not gonna happen!
So, I searched and searched for a Look for Less, and I did find a few other options that I loved, but they were also more than what I wanted to pay. For example, there is the Bebe Okra, which is actually closer to the ones above because they are closed-toe, but they retail for $110. There was also the Bakers Lola, which is on sale for $84.99 but the solid black is no longer available. DRAT! They have several colors available, but they all have a snake print wedge. Cute, but not what I’m looking for. Next, there was the H by Halston Helena, which is also on sale for $65.99 in black , but it has a sequin upper, which makes it a lot less versatile in my opinion. There was also the Wild Pair Jilly, for $89.99 — still more than I wanted to pay. There were a few others, believe it or not, but I won’t bore you with anymore. LOL. I think you guys get the point. I was REALLY searching for these shoes. Finally, I landed on the Blythe and OMG! It’s on sale for $59.99…and OMG again! I found a coupon code for 25% off. SOLD to the lady in the leather pants (or whatever I had on that day LOL)! So, they arrived on Saturday and I couldn’t be happier. I really wanted closed-toe, but ehh…that’s just a minor detail when a shoe is this fabulous! I’ll just invest in some nice tights for winter!
Didn’t I say this was gonna be a quick post? I guess I lied…Don’t forget to come back tomorrow and link up your Home Office Style look of the week. I can’t wait to see!
