Ok so y’know how I’ve been traveling all week for work? Spending long days and nights in Cali in planning meetings, in team building sessions at night (i.e. dinner and drinks) and feeling rather sleep deprived and ready for the (very long) series of flights home tonight?
Well – ‘foodie friday’ just wasn’t happening today. My meals have consisted of cobbled together options I’ve brought with me (thank you healthy snack kit I packed on Sunday!), and as many healthy choices as I could figure out, given how out-of-my-control most of my meals have been. In other words – I’ve done my best, but nothing compares to my own home-cooked meals (ohhh oatmeal, I miss you thiiiiis much!).
So in lieu of Foodie Friday, I figured I’d share a couple of my outfits from this week in Cali. Luckily, we were basically told to dress casual all week so I happily obliged with jeans for the duration of the week (I normally dress “up” in skirts, dresses, dress pants).
We’ll call this Fashion Friday – the traveling-for-work edition:
This is from the first day of meetings. I scored some super-cute finds at the Banana Republic Outlet while shopping with the hubs this weekend so a large part of that outfit is from there. Sidenote: This outfit made me feel super fashionable and confident!
Jeans: The Limited
Tank: Banana Republic Outlet
Cardigan: Banana Republic Outlet
Necklace: Banana Republic Outlet
Earrings (if you can see them) and bracelet: The Limited
Shoes (which I realize you can’t really see in this pic): a score from my trip to Little Rock (Heather: remind readers what the name of the store was where we found these??)
This was almost an outfit fail. I was going to wear a dress that I brought but upon putting it on that morning, I just wasn’t feeling it. So I went back to the same jeans I wore the day prior and this top and cardigan combo. I’d actually worn the pink top under something else on my travel day to Cali on Monday but decided to wear it again because I didn’t have another tank to wear underneath this cardigan. I was annoyed that I had to re-wear the top but it turned out to be a pretty cute outfit so I guess it wasn’t a fail afterall. 😉
Jeans: The Limited
Pink top: The Limited
Ruffle cardigan: The Limited
Necklace and earrings: The Limited
Shoes (which you can’t see…): Naughty Monkey
Bag: Coach Factory Outlet (purchased during one of their “secret sales” online, HUGE steal!!)
Thursday’s outfit involved another Banana Republic Outlet find – and I’m seeing quite the pattern here. Jeans, cardigan, cute tank and cute shoes. Am I predictable or what?? Geez.
Jeans: Seven for all Mankind (my favorite)
Tank: Banana Republic
Cardigan: Victoria’s Secret
Earrings: The Limited
Shoes: the cute ones I got in Little Rock
Clearly there’s a
big ass huge trend here. I love anything from Banana Republic, The Limited and Victoria’s Secret. In fact, I’m pretty sure that 95% of my wardrobe is from these three stores. The rest is made up of Lululemon, Brooks (sneakers — a new pair should be waiting for me at home that I scored from Amazon.com before I left for my trip, whee!) and Old Navy. Super-cute workout gear, oh how I love thee. 😉
So there you have it – my first fashionista style post, *very* out of the norm around these parts, I realize. So I hope you don’t mind the slight detour from the usual this week but in the spirit of “un-routine” I figured it was only fitting. 😉
