Stripes: That Business Casual Thing

Hey guys, good news! I think I’m starting to get the hang of this whole “business casual” thing. Whew boy, just when I was afraid I’d never fit into this new, big girl world I’m navigating, I’ve finally started feeling comfortable in my slacks and nice shirts. But trust me, this transition has been full of weird feelings about clothing and fashion.

It felt (ok, ok, still feels) like when I started fashion blogging: a sense of uncertainty, not really knowing what went together or how to make a “look”, not having much to work with, and still feeling out the rules. Yeah, fashion is a definitely a journey and this has been the maiden voyage of my fancy pants ship of business casual.

I did finally invest in some new work clothes so I have some exciting outfit posts planned for the near future! Get excited, folks, things are about to get epic up in here. Having more clothes to choose from definitely makes me feel much more confident in my outfit choices and I am really beginning to not only appreciate the art of accessorizing but also realizing just how much I need to work on my fear of wearing necklaces. I’m not sure what it is but I am horribly uncomfortable wearing any jewelry, especially necklaces. I’m for sure going to be working on this in the near future because who doesn’t love a well accessorized, professional lady?

Have I mentioned that working so much is exhausting? Ho.ly.cow. So I’m sorry if I’m rambling or not making sense to well rested brains, mine is on a planet of it’s own right now…I suppose you’re just getting some greater insight into the inner workings of my crazy mind. Yeah, it’s like a party up in here-a weird party filled with 2 parts wonderland, 3 parts business casual, and 1 part totally awesome. And there I go again with my rambles…

Anyone else feel like fashion is a crazy journey or share my fear of necklaces? What about imaging a puddle of awesome floating around in their brain (yeah, that’s probably just me)?

Stripes: So Yeah

Remember that time I told Sequins I would totally have her back and come up with some awesome posts to keep the blog running like a gem? Yeeeaaaahhhh. I may or may not have TOTALLY forgotten to take pictures of my outfit yesterday. Here is a list of why you didn’t get to see my geek chic outfit:

-I forgot I needed to write a post (because some how it’s really hard to remember I post every other day…)
-Sequins wasn’t here to remind me to take pictures
-I really had to pee when I got home last night so I first changed in my pjs so I could be as comfortable as humanly possible
-I’m kinda forgetful
-My dog ate it
-Aliens took over my brain and made me do some weird stuff
-I’m actually a bear and started hibernating
-My outfit burst into flames and I had to go on the Hunger Games
-I’m really a ghost and it’s really hard to get a picture of me
-My outfit was actually made out of candy and I ate it
-I’m a werewolf and as I got home tonight I started to change so I couldn’t take a picture of the process
-I was hungry and food>pictures
-My dog wanted me to rub her belly

Yeah, yeah, yeah, you get the point. I may or may not have totally forgotten that I needed pictures of my outfit, which is a shame because it was really cute! BUTTTTTT (what what in the butt? Anyone?) I’ve got a picture of me and the sweatshirt I was OMG SO EXCITED to change into. Not kidding. Sorry friend I had coffee with and those ducks at the park, but the highlight of my day was putting on this sweatshirt and then eating nachos.

See why this sweatshirt rocks?! My little college town has a heart over it!

This sweatshirt (from the farmer’s market by the lady who did our jellyfish sweatshirts) makes me smile!

And then I caught the wind from my fan…I’m getting all ANTM up in hurrrr. Making Tyra proud, one picture at a time.

What’s your guys’ favorite post work outfit? Anyone else crave nachos in a weird, kinda intense way? Oh God, don’t let me be the only person who would eat the cheesy deliciousness for every meal ever.
