Friday 5 - What I Wore to Work this Week

Hey all! I am linking up with Running on Happy and Fairytales and Fitness for Friday 5 2.0!

Today, I'm going to share what I wore to work this week! Sometimes I also include a "before" picture, just for fun, which is basically just what I look like before hair and make up.

~  Monday  ~

"It was $14.99!!!!" 

I call this look "It Was $14.99" because every time someone complimented my dress I had to inform them of the low price!

The blackish/greyish dress is what I would call a very thin fleece material, so it was warm but not too warm. The hemline is a little longer in the back than the front, which is a cool detail.

Back opaque tights from NY&Co - $6

Grey booties from Target, purchased with a gift card I won at a race- $23 (but only $3 with card!)

Just some silver dangles I had forever.

 Avon hand me down ring from my mom

Huge, chunky necklace. 
Here you can see the dress color better.

"Feels Like Jammies!"

This outfit was so comfy, I felt like I was wearing pjs.
Maroon leggings- Ross- $5.99
Black boots also from Ross (or similar store)
Black sweater from Ross- $9.99
Black tank

Chunky necklace

Chunky bangles

I accidentally wore two different earrings to work! 
Oops! No one mentioned anything...


~  Wednesday  ~

"Lots of Layers"

Stretchy grey leggings
Patterned top from JC Penny
White-ish sweater from Ross- $9.99

I don't know why I layered so many necklaces but I did.
Basic gold earrings.

Layered bracelets.

My faux suede elf boots.

I forgot to take a before picture!

~  Thursday  ~


So this is an outfit I never wore before.I mean, I wore all the pieces before (except the leggings) but not together. I think the dress looks a little weird so if I had a different black skirt I think I would like it more.

Plaid shirt tied at the waist over a black tank dress.
Green leggings, black knee high boots.

Wrap bracelet

Avon ring from my mom

Black rose earrings

Green leggings from Charlotte Ruse- $4.99 
I thought they said $1.99, that's why I bought them. But they rung up $4.99 and they I noticed I read the tag wrong. I had already waited in a long line so I just bought them anyway.

"Feels Like Jammies Part 2"

At the time of writing this post, I did not wear this outfit yet. But it's the outfit I INTEND to wear on Friday! It is super comfy and warm.

Grey sweater from Goodwill- $3.99
Pink fleece lined leggings from Charlotte Ruse- $4.99
Grey elf boots

Basic jewelry:

HAPPY FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What's your favorite look this week?


  1. Love the variety of your outfits! My favorite outfit will be featured later today on my #FridayFashionFlairp post ;-)

  2. I love the dress you wore on Monday! That style dress is always flattering. I need to get a long sleeve version like that one you have!
    I'm totally rocking the "feels like pjs" look today with a big cardigan at work. Love it for a Friday!

    1. I think the dress is an A-line, is that right? I read that A-lines are flattering on any body type. Enjoy your comfy Friday! Seriously, it feels like it should be a crime to be this comfortable at work!

  3. You know I love these posts! You put some great outfits together! I love anything that is comfy but still stylish/wear to work!
    I also love using pieces I already have in different ways. I recently discovered that navy blue and peach are "in"! Two colors I would not have thought to wear together but it really works!

    1. I would have never thought of Navy and peach either! Those are two colors I don't have in my closet. I really have nothing that is navy.

    2. Actually, I guess it's coral,not peach. Coral is the new peach,,,haha. I do remember you saying you don't wear Navy.

  4. I love your outfits! I'm not a huge leggings wearer but have started wearing them more when it's chilly here. I like them with boots but not any other shoes and they can be warmer than jeans. My favorite thing is the necklace you're wearing with the $14.99 dress!

    1. I cannot remember where I got that necklace but I have had it for awhile. I think leggings with boots are flattering on everyone.

  5. I love how you accessorise! I tend to be so lazy when it comes to that! Great outfits - my favourite? Definitely the "It was 14.99!" :-)

    1. Thanks! I love that dress too. This is the first time I wore it and I've been saving it so I had something "new" to wear in the winter.

  6. Ok, while im not all that into fashion I am into a deal and you take the prize! I love this. Coming from a rich little town I get so disgusted by the amount of money some of my female friends drop on cloths. Great bargain hunting!

    1. Thanks, Patrick! I am always looking for a deal! Ross, Marshall's, Etc tends to have quality made items at a fraction of the price.

  7. I wore a good variety, until I moved to Boulder. You mean I can wear jeans every day??? Yes! I do wear dresses in the summer, but jeans makes it easy in the winter.

    1. When we go on vacation I love to dress up, but no one dresses up in CO or Northern CA!

  8. I like your Tuesday outfit the best! it looks comfy ! I really admire that you take the time to match accessories and find different shoes.

  9. My work outfits would bore you to tears. Pretty much every day I wear a black skirt, tights, and a grey sweater of some sort! It makes my clothes selections so easy, and since I'm only in the office 3 days a week, I feel like I can just recycle selections every week if I wanted! I have a similar style dress like your grey one, but I have never received a compliment on it :( I'm starting to think it might be ugly on me, but no family member wants to break the news to me. ha! You do a great job with the accessories. Love the big chunky collection of necklaces!

    1. Aw no I bet it doesn't look ugly on you! Listen, we rarely see pics of you in "real" clothes, just running clothes. I suggest you do a What I Wore to Work post. :)

  10. That dress is AMAZING! $14.99??! Super cute.

  11. I love your style! How awesome that you can find great stuff for so cheap.

  12. You're way more stylish than I am... I pretty much wear jeans, long-sleeves and a fleece jacket with boots or sneakers to work everyday (because I can ;)).

    Love the grey dress.

  13. so cute!! all your outfits!! I would do something like this but it would always look the same :D jeans. old black top. cardigan or bolero. some type of scarf. running shoes. I have to say though, I have been adding earrings lately, since I reorganized my jewelry :)

    1. Well maybe do a post about what jewelry you wear. :)

  14. Cute outfits! I need to remember to wear accessories, but I feel like I'm do pretty good just getting out of the house in the morning with 2 matching shoes :-)
