I’ve been a bit quiet it seems, but that’s only because I’ve been busy working on ‘back end blog’ projects. I’m preparing some posts, fixing some bugs, all the behind-the-scenes stuff.
Thank goodness Kristie over at Blog Ambitions saved the day. Minor cracks in the blog foundation I can handle. This broken-mobile-blog messiness left me deep in the dark, and Kristie solved the mystery! (Did I mention she also had a baby just days before my call for help?! Amazing!)
Blog fixed now, my heart can stop sinking…
Hiding Out on Instagram
I’ve been sharing all my Get Your Pretty On Work Wear Style Challenge outfits over on Instagram (@fashemployed), so be sure to stop by and follow along! Going forward, I plan to share quite a few outfits and style nuggets there that won’t always make it to the blog. It’s a bit faster for me to share, but more importantly, easier for most of you to enjoy!
Oh yeah… and here’s Part II today of the black and red style punch. I’m still celebrating that I wore joggers to work!
Day Trip to St. Joseph, Michigan
Last Saturday, we took a day trip to the Warren Dunes and St. Joseph, Michigan. (Sidenote: It was amazing and a super easy day trip from Chicago, even with the boys. I never thought it was doable until Kim of Orange Marigolds, a St. Joseph native, assured me I could do it. I definitely have her to thank for our awesome day!)
For our climb up the dunes and our day at the beach, I wore these pants. M said “That’s ridiculous! You can wear the same pants to work that you wear to the beach?!”
Work Joggers in Your Closet
If you want a pair, you can get them in regular, petite, or tall. I’ve worn them dressed up and dressed down, three more ways styled for the office, and with a patterned blouse and green blazer (my personal favorite). Fall is on it’s way (and winter is not far behind for those of you near my neck of the woods). If these aren’t all reason enough to wear sweatpants to work (without botching your dress code), I’m not sure what will be. 🙂
Back to M’s comment… he thinks it’s style fraud, though he definitely didn’t use that term.
I just think it’s genius!
