Casual Day / Green Jeans and Black Boots

19 Dec

Today, I’m enjoying the last day of work before a long Christmas holiday! These last few days have been casual around GenJ so I had an excuse to wear these comfortable green jeans to work. Paired with black suede boots and a cozy sweater, these cold days have nothing on this new go to outfit. IMG_6982 IMG_6998 IMG_7043Sweater: Old Navy — Pants: Target (similar) — Boots: Target (similar) — Necklace: Old Navy (similar: here and here)

Workwear: Mint Blouse and Red Sweater

12 Dec

Jumping on the mint trend that has been roaming our closets for years now, I’m presenting this outfit full of color and class. Or at least I hope.

I love how everything worked together and the beige flats provide the perfect classic finishing to the outfit. I didn’t want to add a necklace because the red/mint top combo and the black/brown pants combo seemed interesting enough.

Your Style / Mixing Prints

5 Dec

Two weeks ago I asked my readers to send in their mixing prints styled outfits. I was featuring my own outfit where I paired a polka dot shirt with a striped sweater and wondered what you guys could come up with! My sister-in-law Heather put together quite the incredible mixed prints outfit using the color blue.

Remember how I mentioned, when you’re mixing prints in an outfit, it helps to have a base color? Heather’s base color was blue. Each piece she is wearing has that color in it, which helps tie the whole outfit together!

Thanks for sending in your pictures Heather! It’s an honor to feature you on my blog today. 🙂

Workwear: Polka Dot Button-up and Yellow Sweater

21 Nov

I love mixing stripes and polka dots, prints and graphics, and plaids and florals (ok the last one might be a stretch for me). In this outfit, these prints go together perfectly for a couple of reasons. Let me explain why:

1) Same color scheme. When mixing prints, try to stay in the same color vicinity. If you’re wearing a bright color like yellow, it might not be favorable to also throw on a loud red or fuchsia. Stick with one vibrant color and then mesh everything with it. Here, yellow and black/grey/white take main stage.

2) Large-scale/small-scale. Try and wear one print that is small than the other one. Two large-scale prints don’t work well. If the polka dots were just as graphically loud as the bold stripes, they would be competing with and not complimenting each other.

Workwear: Plum dress and Tan Blazer

23 Oct

This tan wool blazer is a new addition to my wardrobe. It got it for a steal at Target a month ago and have worn it at least 10 times already. It’s great for work and dressing up jeans on the weekend.

Workwear: Blue Print Blouse and Nude Flats

10 Oct

Getting back into blogging means putting together new outfits and thinking up creative ways to dress at work! I’m glad that it’s fall again. That means that I’ll be wearing work outfits more regularly and well, everyone knows that fall clothes are the best and most versatile (can you say, LAYERING!)

I found this blouse on Old Navy online. It was on sale and with the 40% off coupon (emailed to me every week) this one item ended up being $4. With the beige/khaki pants and flats combo, my leg line extends down to the ground. Remember talking about how keeping colors the same makes you appear taller?  (in this post and this one).

I think I’m beginning to like this kind of look: untucked blouse with skinny pants and flats. It feels easy yet pulled together and something I can put on for work but doesn’t take tons of effort in the morning.

Casual Day: Colorful flannel and jeans

5 Apr

I love this outfit. A little more on the casual side (because of the flannel) than I would normally wear on a casual Friday, but it sure is comfortable. I’m trying to squeeze in these cozy outfits when I can before it gets too warm out. Then I have to resort to less layers and styling options. This summer will be a fun challenge!

Yellow/purple combo, check! Considering I’ve never worn those two colors together before, I consider this an accomplishment.
