or maybe more like day to happy hour. 😉

now that i have a “real” reason to buy smart looking trousers and more blazers, you can bet i’ll be sharing looks that are a bit more office friendly (BUT still fashionable!). thank god trousers are in right now.

i thought i’d start with something easy. my number one go to move for transitioning from day to night: the leather jacket. an easy switch to edge up any outfit. and let’s be real, i don’t trust myself to wear a white blazer at a bar.

ALSO, i had to share these two workwear finds i’ve been wanting to wear over and over. i picked up these plaid pants from express the other day, and i’ve gotta say how impressed i am with the quality! i’ve never been one to shop at express, but i’ll definitely be going back for more workwear.

and i’ve had my eye on these mules for a few weeks at DSW, but of course i waited to long and they were out of stock like 3 days later. #myluck BUT after scouring the interwebs, i found them fully in stock here in black and snakeskin!

leopard is the new black.

happy friday, babes! is anyone else jumping on this leopard bandwagon with me? i’ve literally been so obsessed with anything and everything leopard recently. it’s so tempting to buy every cute leo print sweater or scarf or bootie i come by. i shared this look over on insta a few weeks back (also wore this sweater for thanksgiving!) and y’all went crazy over this sweater, so i thought i’d share a little more in depth!

i had been wanting a leo sweater for a while, but you know me, i’m picky. i didn’t want one that screamed LEOPARD or that was brighter or super brown. leopard incognito, if you will. LOL well, i saw this one and purchased it immediately. like total impulse purchase. i mean it’s under $25…wouldn’t you have too?

i’ll be honest with you, babe, this sweater was a tad itchy when i first got it. you get what you pay for? needless to say, i was a little let down, but i threw a shirt on underneath and powered through because it’s just so darn cute! i also washed and dried it (according to care instructions, no worries!) and that did help a bit.

when i say leopard is the new black, i mean it! it goes with EVERYTHING. black, brown, red, yellow, blue, stripes, floral, ANYTHING. #mindblowing give it a try!

enjoy your weekend, babe!! xo

today’s look..your highlight reel.

happy happy friday, lovebugs! this week went by so quickly. like i’m pretty sure yesterday was monday, was it not?
some of you are probably thinking the exact opposite as is friday couldn’t get here soon enough.
well regardless, the weekend is here, so take this time to participate in a little R&R. i know i will!
today concludes my third week of my internship. it’s almost been a whole month! time is seriously flying! i have learned so much already in the short time i’ve been working with kait, and a lot of our work is making me realize how not-so-glamorous the life of a blogger/entrepreneur/#girlboss can be.
