Wearing Track Pants To Work

Wearing track pants to work, Atlanta Personal Stylist

I'm sure last night was tough for you knowing that Monday was on the horizon (or not), but what better way to start of the work week than by walking into the office dressed better than everybody.  If you're not already in your best dressed office wear today, there's still the rest of the week.  And just in case you need a little help, I got you covered - wink!

So today I'd like to offer up another style inspo for the work place.  While most office dress codes are set up to not let you be great, you can still look fab.  One thing I've noticed about my wardrobe of late is that I prefer a more relaxed, easy going type of look.  It's funny because in my teens, I dressed like a tomboy, then in my 20's to early 30's everything had to be fitted (or tight rather).  Now that I'm 40, comfort is most important.  As a matter of fact, it's numero uno, which is why the athleisure trend is a fave of mine.  It's a way to be comfy and cute.  

I got these pants on sale from H& (currently sold out) and was so glad I did.  I'm always a little hesitate when ordering pants online because ya girl is short (like 4'11" - 5' short) and it's such a hassle and a disappointment when they don't work out.  But these red track pants are amazing, and I can wear either flats or sneakers without them scrubbing the ground.

I styled them with this white and black striped blazer from Target (currently on sale, limited sizes tho) with a marigold t-shirt to tie in my heels.  To cool part about wearing athleisure is that it doesn't require a lot of effort.  Although I opted for heels, a pair of cute sneakers would have worked just as well.  

A few things to keep in mind if you're going to sport this look on the job...

1. Be mindful of the material your pants are made of.  Make sure that you're wearing pants and not tights.  Seeing your underwear or lack there of through your "pants" at work or anywhere you go is not cute, hunty.  

2. Accessorize your look.  Add a necklace or bracelets.  You're still going to work not the gym.  

3. Add a casual piece, such as a button down shirt or a blazer (hint, hint) wearing a t-shirt will only dress down the look.  The goal is to have a mix of both casual and athletic.  

4. Have fun with it.  If you can get away with wearing a bold color such as red, do it.

Second Time Around

Happy Thursday Stylenista's!

Does it make me bougie if I never wear the same thing the same way twice?  I'd like to think of it as cReAtIvE!  If you follow me on IG, FB or read my blog, then you'll remember this skirt from a few months ago (see here).  I'm a very colorful person so this skirt was absolutely made just for me.  With all the colors, the style options are limitless.  You will definitely see more of this skirt this season.

Side note, I really love this splash of color in my hair!  ;-)

Breakfast At Tiffany's

Hiya Stylenista's!

Let me first start off by saying my weekend was fab-u-lous!  I started my weekend by enjoying my bi-monthly mani/pedi, which I absolutely look forward to.  And for a few months now, I've been playing with the idea of adding a little color to my hair.  In my younger years, I experimented with quite a few different colors (green, purple, orange, blonde, cooper to name a few.)  So now that I'm a tab older, I just wanted a touch of color.  Enough about that....

Now about my weekend.  I attended the Little Blue Box Brunch hosted by Nikka Shae of the blog Oh! Nikka.  It was such an elegant event and the fact that the attire was black with pearls was so fun.  This event was more than just a group of beautiful  ladies meeting up to eat.  The room was filled with powerful business minded women coming together in the name of sisterhood.  Although I don't wear make up, Julian Reynolds offered some great advice for keeping your face looking it's best.  Chloe Taylor Brown, lifestyle coach, really empowered us to become winners in life.  Girls Inc. talked about their mission to inspire young girls to be strong, smart and bold.  Molly and Cynthia of Livi Rae Lingerie were both hilarious as they talked about the importance of wearing a proper fitting bra.  If you haven't already attended, you should!  Oh! Did I mentioned not only did I win a gift certificate from Keystrokes by Kimberly giveaway as soon as I sat down; I also won LBB brunch best dressed in which the gift was a rectangular crystal Tiffany & co box.
