Work Wear: The Best Wrap Top

Workwear is an ongoing shifting style for me. When I was in college I worked in an office and had to wear business casual. This meant dress pants and only jeans on Fridays. It some ways it was kind of a pain because I essentially needed two closets. In Graduate school and my first job out of graduate school was casual settings. Jeans and tee-shirts were acceptable. Technically, I am still in a casual setting but I am learning some things about how much dressing for work matters to me.

Welcome to the weekend! I am so ready for this weekend. The weather around here has been so gloomy that is has become quite wearing. You can feel the energy of people here fading a bit. Every day is more tiring than the last. We need a little sunshine. It even snow flurried yesterday (ah!) Desperately in need of this weekend. I have a couple of fun things planned so I am looking forward to a couple of days off. Do you have any fun plans?

For this Friday, I finally got up my Fall Rachel Zoe Box of Style. Haven't checked it out yet? Spoiler alert: you are going to want this box. It's one of my favorites yet, these keep getting better and better. Click here! Once a season she has a box that is curated for you. Lately, it has included more and more exclusive pieces you cannot find anywhere else. It's only $100 but this box is worth $480. Seriously, it's amazing. Let's get into it.

Lace Tank + Nights Out

It's pretty chilly here in Minnesota now, and we are deep into fall. Even looking towards, dare I say it, winter. #winteriscoming . I went out the other weekend for some birthdays and have a couple events this week too. I thought I would share with you my go-to look these days.

I can not tell you how much I think a blazer is oh so chic. I just love the structured look and there are so many wears to wear one. I wish I had a job where I could realistically wear one more often. I mean, I can wear one to work but I am the most dressed up person there by a million. When I can find one to wear out at night, it's even better. I got this blazer last year and wore it over a jumpsuit for my birthday. I wanted to incorporate this again a different way. For my birthday I simply draped it over my shoulders so as not to hide the jumpsuit. For this look, I wore it because of the fitted nature of the jeans and top. This draped blazer was the perfect combo. Not to mention it's velvet, so amazing. Underneath I paired this tank that I have been dying to get for a while. This tank has that nighty kind of look with the lacy detail and the silky texture. I really love that detail, it's a bit of a throwback to the early 2000s for me and I am here for it. It's a sultry piece that you can really highlight or make it peak through like I did here. These jeans are my new favorite jeans of all time. Madewell is the queen of jeans. Theirs are my absolute favorite and they fit like a glove. I was in need for some black jeans and these are perfect. The frayed edges and distressing add the perfect edge for this look. Plus, the high waist is my new favorite thing. I may never go back, I love the shape it creates. Helps to show off the hourglass shape even if you don't possess it. Completed it with these boots that I literally spent a week begging you guys to purchase (here, here and here) .  You are going to see more of these boots. I completed it by just layering a few delicate necklaces. I think I am kind of statement necklaces right now. I am all about layering delicate pieces, both necklaces and bracelets.

Another weekend in the books! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. I actually had a pretty chill weekend. Friday I did go to a concert with my parents at Orchestra Hall. I am hoping to get that look up on the blog soon. I did post about it on my Instagram over the weekend so check that out. The rest of the weekend I was solo mom as D was out of town. Saturday night I headed over to my parents' house for dinner and to just hang out. I also got to see my niece and the girls got to play together, which is always fun. Sunday I had intentions of taking Reese somewhere to play but I was just exhausted and couldn't decide where to go, so we had a lazy day. Plus side was the Vikings won so #SKOL
