It’s Haute at Work

Hello Friends and Happy Wednesday!

Yesterday I wore a cute chunky sweater, it’s so comfy and warm (along with my cute leopard sneakers and jeans) because it’s November right and mornings are super cold (30 degrees)…

But as I walked into my office, I was hit with a wall of heat. WTH, my work temperature changes so much from season to season; I remember taking a cardigan to work in July because the AC is cranked so high my fingers are numb but then I leave the building and my black car with black leather interior is 103 degrees! It’s such an adjustment right??

So yesterday I had forgotten this phenomenon and wore a warm sweater! This is bad, I can’t even shed a layer!

In the afternoon, after I’ve met with five clients and had my door shut all day, I told my co worker that I was dying of heat. I also noticed as I was in the bathroom earlier, that my neck and chest were bright red (heat does not make my rosacea happy). She suggested I keep my door open, although I have a lot of computer documentation to do (as I’m a therapist) and I find it hard to keep the door open with people walking back and forth in the hall and still focusing on my work.

SO….I asked our kitchen (I work in a residential mental health facility) if I could have a bag of ice.

They fixed me up real good; a ziploc bag of ice and I’m sitting cool. I stuck it down the back of my jeans and I was able to keep my door shut and get my work done. After 10 minutes I poured out 1/2 cup of water and then back in my office with the ice bag down my front.

Problem solved!

 

(Today I wore a coat -early morning temps- but underneath have two light tops and am wearing sandals-I’m prepared today!)

Detailed Denim

Hello friends!

Happy Saturday! (I’m sequestered in my house because it’s only 100 degrees outside) and seriously who wants to wander around out in that??

Me and hubs left to run errands but had to come back and get my car cause his has AC problems and won’t work when stopped at traffic lights (sounds important in this heat). So we did errands and have not left the house since! 😂😎 😅

I thought since I’m not doing anything terribly important (😜) I would share a special find this week!

I was retail cruising last week waiting for my eye doc appointment in Chicos and discovered the prettiest denim jacket! It was 40% off and has the cutest details around the neck/lapel area and cuffs. It sort of has a bohemian vibe and I fell in love! It also looks super cute with this little camel 🐪 pin (also on sale and Chicos)! Seriously their stuff is usually bookoo bucks and I avoid but the sale beckoned me in 😂

I think fun and unusual details such as these are always on trend! You could wear this jacket with jeans, zebra print pants like Chicos has, or these (old find) gold snakeprint pants from Macys couple years ago. I might also pair with tan or pink/maybe pants for a different look. You can put denim with anything. I wore blue platform sandals but flats would work or a unique slipper would be fun.

Don’t be afraid to try something new!

Have a happy and (cool) weekend friends!

Summer Weather/Office AC

Hello Friends!

How is everyone doing?? I hope you are well, thanks for reading my blog!

I thought I would share some struggles that I think most women have: summer weather combined with the office air conditioning 😉 You might already know what I’m gonna say!

Now that summer is here to stay (I mean I don’t think it will snow again, never say never though), it was 85 today and earlier in the week 90, so I’m thinking for the most part it will be warm (give or take a random day). I am loving the summer sunshine! It’s absolutely gorgeous in the morning and I love seeing all the trees, flowers, bushes out in their green finery! I was ready for it!

At the same time I’m wearing my summer clothes that are appropriate for the office, I’m also planning to be cold when I get inside LOL and at the same time be ready to get in my black-leather lined oven of a car when I leave! It’s a delicate balance!

Take today for instance: I wore my summer floral dress and sandals (they are a couple years old) but I combined this with my new bamboo bag (Amazon and so summery) and (just in case I freeze later) my destroyed jean jacket from Forever 21! I always need to be prepared to be hot or cold! I usually always bring some type of cardigan or jacket just in case 🙂 I have lots of jackets, it seems to be a thing with me, so I am always ready in case I am cold!

The motto of the day: BE PREPARED!
