What I wore Wednesday - Work-wear style challenge week #1

Wednesday, August 27, 2014


I'm doing another challenge with Alison @ Get Your Pretty On!

This challenge focuses on business casual looks. 
When the shopping list came out, I was super excited to see there were very little things I needed to purchase (Mr. B was also pleased about this!). 

I don't need to dress up for work, but I always feel better when I do. Plus, I do like to have a repertoire of 'work outfits' for when I have meetings or just want to switch it up. 

I may not follow this 100% BUT I haven't posted outfits in a while (likely since the last challenge) so it'll motivate me to post and get some clothing pics up regardless how closely I'm following!

Hope you'll follow along and don't forget to check out the blogs of my fellow participants below.

alright... so here's what I've been wearing:

Monday

Too hot for anything but shorts (even though I don't think I have EVER posted a pic of me in shorts).
Top: Forever21, Shorts: old, Shoes: Lord and Taylor, Necklace: Target
Red lips care of MAC - read more about those here

Tuesday
It was "Family Day" which involved a trip to the zoo so clearly a sheath dress and dress shirt wouldn't work PLUS it was a billion degrees here (and people say Canada is cold - pshh)
Shorts: H&M, Sandals: Birkenstock, Glasses: RayBan

Wednesday
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!
Not sure what this is going to be yet. Going for comfort today because I'm heading with mini-me's daycare on a field trip!! Wish me luck!!

  1. I like how you match a blouse with shorts. Never think of shorts as being dressy but it looks great! The green color looks fab on you!

  6. I miss you guys! Since I'm the only one sitting in my office every day, I decided not to do the work wear challenge. You should post yourself in shorts more often - really cute! HAPPY BIRTHDAY (yes, that was yelling - happy yelling).
