Dress Well: Office Flannel

J. Crew shirt (love this spring one), J. Crew skirt, Old tights (similar), Rag & Bone Harrow booties, Tory Burch bag (very similar), Michael Kors watch (similar), J. Crew bracelet, J. Crew bangles

Last night I got caught up watching The Devil Wears Prada on TV because it's an awesome movie. Obviously. Anyway, after Anne Hathaway's "transformation" in the movie, she greets her boyfriend outside of his restaurant and says that she's the same girl, just with better clothes. That's pretty much how I feel about myself since I started reading blogs, writing this one, and taking a few more minutes every morning putting together my outfits. It never would have occurred to me just one year ago to wear this casual flannel shirt to work. It never would have dawned on me that it would look just as professional when paired with a pencil skirt as all of my other, boring button-down shirts. And let me tell you, I'm so glad I finally realized that flannel could be made office appropriate - there's something about wearing a soft, comfortable shirt that makes even the most taxing of workdays that much easier to live through.

So, who's excited for Daylight Savings Time? This girl is. I used to always hate the "spring forward" part about starting Daylight Savings Time, but now that I spend most of my days cooped up in an office I will gladly sacrifice one hour of sleep in order for it to still be light when I get home from work at night. Plus, starting Daylight Savings Time always makes me feel like we've sprung one giant leap closer to summer. I know it's just one hour, but I'll take what I can get.

Have a great weekend!

Dress Well: Heart on My Sleeve

J. Crew sweater, J. Crew shirt (similar), Joe's jeans, Rocket Dog boots, J. Crew necklace, Ernest Alexander via Club Monaco bag, Coach sunglasses

Cold Texas days over Christmas meant layers: lots of layers. My mother-in-law gave me this adorable sweater from J. Crew, which proved to be a wonderful ally in the fight to stay warm (made harder by the fact that I didn't bring a jacket on the trip...what happened to 70-degree Decembers?!). My husband also gave me a heart-print sweater for Christmas, so expect to see my heart on my sleeve quite a bit in the future!
