Yes, it's been a bit fast-paced as of late!
Hooray, it’s Friday! Yesterday marked the successful completion of a couple of super-big projects at work. I welcome the tad-bit-slower clip I’ll enjoy this next few weeks.
There’s a change of pace on the home front, too. This weekend is the first one in some time that nothing is scheduled. This evening, I plan on crafting an “All I Want This Weekend” list—map out those things I want to enjoy, accomplish—even feel (e.g. relaxed, creative, blissful, etc.) this weekend. Yum!
Yesterday, I continued onward with my pledge to infuse fun, daring and whimsy into my workplace wardrobe. This, too, is somewhat of a shift as I, historically, have played it pretty “safe” with my workplace stylings. Below, are a few examples of how I did so:
Wore two watches at once
The secret to this is pairing a larger and smaller watch (or larger grouping of watches of various sizes)—versus putting the same sized pieces together.
Donned sparkle shoes
Wednesday, I sported the dress I wore to my son’s wedding into the office. Yesterday, I wore the shoes (Nine West) I bought for that momentous occasion to work. In doing so, I flexed both my creative and courage muscles a bit, and that felt fab! Stretched my wardrobe again, too!
Repurposed a necklace
The necklace featured above is actually a long strand. The look I was going for, yesterday, was that of a statement necklace (the shorter variety everyone is wearing right now). No problem. I wrapped the strand around my neck a few times and fastened it in the back. Instantly, I was in vogue!
Showed a little lace
Wore a blouse as a jacket
It’s been awfully stuffy these past few days. Thursday, I opted to switch out my jacket for a blouse (Forever 21). It was a comfier option and looked every bit as polished.
Share with me ways you are embracing a change of pace. I would love hearing about them!
Joy and hugs! T.
