there was a time when i used to wear dresses, slacks, and heels to work. then all of that changed and it went to jeans, flats, and a nice top or sweater. this became even more casual when i went back to business school.
if you asked me to choose though, i'd always choose something like this and flip flops over a dress and heels
sure.. it's grad school, but if i wasn't in a suit and heels for an event/networking/interview i was in flip flops, jeans, and a tank top, usually at the beach, on my board or somewhere outside soaking in the sun and relishing my freedom from a 40+ hour work week. i knew what i had was precious and i was going to enjoy every minute of it.
fast foward two years and i'm back in the working world and all that's changed. even thought i work for a company that let's us dress casually every day i've rediscovered the whole dress up idea. back are the heels, the dresses (dressed down of course), and a bit more fashion. granted the slacks are still hibernating in the back of the closet (i'll avoid those at all costs if possible), i'm still more of a jeans girl.
thanks to pinterest i'm also getting new ideas, i've got so many fashionable friends that are a constant inspiration to me! if you want to buy me a present... click here. (i'll admit, i already bought some of it for myself). :D
