Hey friends! Happy, happy Wednesday to ya 🙂 I have been battling an awful cold for the past week and I am so ready to get to the weekend so I can get some much needed rest. When I came back from Atlanta last weekend, it was 30 degrees out and I had only gotten 20 hours of sleep in 4 days, so I know both of those factors have contributed to my prolonged sickness. Anyway, while I have been under the weather, I have crafting a list of my winter projects including making a wreath, redecorating my room, adding my diploma & other college regalia to the shadowbox (I graduated in May, oops) and so on. Plus, I was able to knock out 70-100 emails in just one day of being able to work from my couch. There really is no positive to being sick (besides getting to eat 6 cups a soup in a day and having no one judge you for it) but I’m thankful that I had enough energy to get through days of unread emails and got to snuggle with my pup all day while working.
Y’all, I feel like it has been forever and a day since I have shared a #WorkWearWednesday post, but I’m back today sharing a basic one. Some of the feedback I received from y’all was that you wanted to see work wear that has main focus/pop of color to add to your look styled with capsule wardrobe pieces, so that’s exactly what I have today. My work staples include these black pants, tank, shoes and silver watch. Whenever I want to style a more simple look or I have only 5 minutes to get ready for work, I throw on these staples + one statement top/sweater then head out. I immediately had to grab this sweater when I spotted it at Belk for only $22 and saw how it was made with the perfect winter material to keep me warm. With this sweater, you can add a tank top (like me), a long sleeve, a bodysuit or a button up and have multiple ways to style this same sweater all winter long. It is currently marked down for less than $25 for #CyberWeek, so I would totally jump on this sale while it is still hot! Well friends, that’s all that I have for y’all today! I hope that everyone has a lovely week and a beautiful Wednesday. -xo, Azanique <3
