what i wore to work: november

i am going to try my best to keep this series going, just as long as i remember…hehe
so here is november’s post for

what i wore to work

follow me on instagram to see more outfits that i may post throughout the month!
@jess_g_anderson

i work in a professional office as an accounting specialist, so sometimes i meet with the head honchos and have to look my best. i work behind a locked door but i do interact with the public, very seldom but it occasionally happens and when it does i have to look professional.
so for me, distressed denim, leggings and relaxed shirts are not appropriate for my work place.  whomp whomp!
but that’s okay! if you can’t tell by my love for polka dots and the color pink, i’m much more of a, high-waisted skirt with some cute bow pumps, gal anyway!

a suit for spring

happy tuesday!
so with my recent move to the main building at my job, i had to up my professional wardrobe.
everything i usually buy is work friendly but because i will be around the public during all hours i needed to up the anti a bit.
so i took a little trip to express and the limited and went a bit crazy.

i saw this cropped pant suit online and loved it and kept thinking how great it would be for spring!
if you’re looking for professional and fashionable attire, i would definitely suggest express, the limited, banana republic and ann taylor. those are my main “go-to” places.

thank you to my mini for wanting to shoot these for me!

yes i was a repeat offender with the chambray but i have like 5 different chambray shirts so technically, it’s different.
pants // {here} love this boutique and it’s super fast shipping!
booties // similar {here}

IMG_7848 what’s a weekend without a stop at target? we saw the cutest puppies! they had little hair ties in their hair and i about died.

IMG_7852 ugh… i tell cale over and over don’t schedule an oil change on a weekend you work…i always get suckered into getting the most expensive checkup and i just nod like i know what they are talking about. grrrr when they told me that it was going to take TWO HOURS to change my oil, i kindly asked for a rental. let’s just say that i felt like a spoiled brat because i couldn’t even back up without my backup camera. {eye roll} first world problems right? slap me.

IMG_7854 after the two hours were up, guess what jaz & i had to do? oh yeah…wait some more… i was so irritated at the end of the day that i went home and took a nap which i never do!

IMG_7857 we got invited to celebrate one of our dear friend’s birthday at an indian restaurant and this little love bug was there! miss neva diva lives in couer d’alene, idaho so we don’t get to see her and her parents very often so this was such a treat!
happy birthday, tyler!

sunday

IMG_7866unfortunately, sunday starts off at night for you guys. cale & i woke up at 7:30 thanks to our damn cats, i facetimed by “person” and then, honestly, fell back to sleep until 1 pm. {gasp} i never do that! so sunday chores got off to a late start.

then we went to dinner at our favorite mexican restaurant, i didn’t order my normal thing, WHAT A HUGE MISTAKE. always order your favorite…always.

so this was basically my night. blogging, tallying up contestants for the giveaway {!!!} and watching 19 kids and counting.

IMG_7865 here’s a peace offering for my boring weekend. my kid and my incredibly long kitty cat. we got so lucky with lulu for how tolerable she is with jazmina. chandler, on the other hand, is not. whoops.

i am going to apologize in advance if my “our weekend adventures” for this coming weekend is late. i’m going to texas, y’all!!!! i am so so excited. i’m excited to see my friends and family, i’m excited to meet with new vendors but i am ECSTATIC to see and try on my dress for the first time! when i tried her on at the boutique, she was a completely different color than what i ordered, so it’ll be like a completely different dress! ahhhhhhhhhhh!!

please tell me what you did this weekend to take my mind off having to get on a plane wednesday. i’m such a baby

always,
-jess

stripes & a blazer

happy friday eve!
it’s unbelievable that i get to say this again, holy sunny seattle! while the south and east coast have wintergeddon happening we are graced with the beauty of a pnw spring! the cherry blossoms are blooming, y’all! it’s been amazing!

I took crazy advantage of this sunny weather and decided to finally wear this adorable pencil dress. while i think it is adorable it is also a bit scandalous. only because it hugs everything. so, to dress it up a bit more so i could wear it to work i 1) pulled it up so no cleavage 2) paired it with a sleek white blazer {i’m the blazer queen} 3) didn’t wear super sexy stilettos.
if i were going out…totally different story!
whether it be a pencil skirt or a pencil dress, i think that every woman needs one. be thankful for your curves and show those babies off…with class though, don’t go hoochie mama! {dangit, now that song is stuck in my head, “ain’t nothin but a hoochie mama!”}

stripes IMG_4830stripes 5 IMG_4655

see, absolutely work friendly. if i wanted i could shimmy the dress down a bit and voila, boobies! but i don’t…so i didn’t.
the next are without the blazer and it just seems a bit too risqué for my workplace but i think i just found my new favorite going out outfit! pshhhh who am i kidding? i don’t go out!

booty, booty, booty rockin’ everywhere! lol

and BAM, hello lady curves! i used to hate my hips because i thought they were disproportional to the rest of my body but cale loves them so he has made me a little less insecure about them. they’re my baby-makin’ hips, he says. considering i have indeed made a baby, i would say that’s accurate. ha!

i try really hard to cycle through all my shoes because i find that bloggers who have the exact same shoes on in every one of their posts, don’t really let their readers into their closets. however, us girls have our favorites and these are definitely one of mine! they are just too comfy and translate well with any look i’m going for. but seriously, change it up a little.

have a great thursday!

soft colors on valentine’s day.

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY! 

so i had originally bought this dress for my rehearsal dinner that’s in 8 months…like 5 months ago! haha! i like to get ahead of myself sometimes. but it was screaming my name from my closet, “wear me…wear meeeee!” so i caved.

i almost always go for a softer color rather than a bold one. so this blazer was the perfect touch against this pristine white dress!
