The Girl in the Pink Scarf

pink scarf, chambray top, black skirt

I’m still struggling with work outfits… which is really silly considering I can basically wear what I want. I think the issue is that I started off at a job where I was required to be wearing a suit every day, or pretty close. Then I went to a business casual environment, but still got pretty dressed up. Now, it is casual, but can really be whatever I want, but I still get confused. I have yet to wear heels, but have worn wedges a couple times, I would just feel silly being one of the only ones in heels. But then again, who cares? Right? Anyway, I swear I’m going somewhere with this.

Although this outfit isn’t necessarily anything special, I love it because I feel like for me it is a good mix of casual and just a little bit of dressy. I have never been a wear jeans every day type of person. I wore dresses and skirts in high school and college, so trying to wear jeans every day just isn’t for me. But put the denim on top, and add a swingy little black skirt on the bottom? Yes, totally me. Add a pink scarf with some tassels, and overall I feel like it adds just the right touch. So yesterday, I was the the girl in the pink scarf. I recently just watched Confessions of a Shopaholic, which is where this post title came from – also I’m so glad I don’t have to freeze my credit cards to keep myself from shopping (or do I)? Stay tuned to find out in my August budget post on Friday! In other news, these Karen Walker sunglasses are currently being borrowed from DITTO through their Endless Program - that means rent your favorite designer sunglasses for just $19 a month!

And FINALLY, it’s Emma! She hasn’t been in one of my posts in forever, so she tagged along (and had about 10 dogs walk by us while taking photos, she was very distracted and wanted to make friends)! And’s its National Dog Day, had no idea. Love the way things work out sometimes. I should re-title my post to National Dog Day or something? There are so many “national” days now they are hard to keep up with!

I don’t know that I have the guts to try this look, but this bodysuit + denim cutoffs look is so incredibly chic! Brooke always looks amazing, but this is definitely one of my favorites!

While I use the slow cooker year round, I’m starting to look for as many ideas as possible for slow cooker meals! And hello, peach and pepper pork chop.

I’ve also got to try this DIY lavender scrub, sounds amazing!

Favorite Finds

I know summer is on its way out, but these sandals are SO cute!

And since I’m ready for the next season (no way), I just bought these OTK boots (wide calf) – I read reviews that they actually fit people with wide calves!

I’ve been looking for the perfect striped dress for work, and this might be it!

Yesterday, I asked what happened to fashion blogging? Just some thoughts, I would love to hear yours!

I shared a gorgeous pink lace dress, but couldn’t take photos outdoors thanks to the rain. I guess that’s what the sky ways are good for!

If you like natural beauty products, I highly recommend checking out Burt’s Bees Cleansing Oil! I talked about how I use it in my latest beauty post.
