@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!

late president’s day post

hi pretties.

this past weekend jaz & i were lucky to have monday off for president’s day. woohoo! poor cale had to work though…boo! boeing never gives them the usual holidays off, maybe it’s because they give him like 2 weeks off at christmas…wth is that! i digress.

it was a beautiful day in good ol’ seattle, again! so we decided that we would take a trip into the city {we live on the outskirts} to have some fun in the sun.

also note that almost all of these pictures were taken by jaz. actually all of the pictures that are not of her she took. atta girl, right??

IMG_4206 IMG_4214

we wanted some big noms so we went and had some vietnamese. yes, the sun may have been out but it was still pretty chilly, so i got some phó and jaz had some stir fry. look, she has finally figured out the chopsticks!

IMG_4221

after lunch we headed over to gas works park. i’m telling y’all the day was absolutely gorgeous!! look at that skyline.

sorry for the dark pictures, but jaz did a great job of getting all of seattle in the background which is really all that mattered.
i am still so obsessed with these paige boyfriend jeans! i got them a size bigger than i usually would because i really wanted that boyfriend look…however {!} the waist is so huge and unlike her other jeans, these stretch out…a lot.

IMG_4265
cheesy…
IMG_4266
super cheesin’ & i can’t see because…sun! yay vitamin d!

IMG_4283 IMG_4285

this wasn’t supposed to be an outfit shoot but it was too pretty to pass up this gorgeousness.
if you live in seattle, just a forewarning, the hill part of gas works park is fenced off. i think they might be re-soiling the whole place, i dunno. we may or may not have squeezed through a crack…not without some other company though, so i didn’t feel too bad.

IMG_4325
after gas works we went and had some molly moon ice cream. i haven’t had it yet and jaz is always down for some sugar.
IMG_4366 IMG_4370

and finally after ice-cream we stopped at a camera store and i bought a new lens…i’m in love! it’s just a pancake lens but it allows so much more light in and i love love love! my kitty cats make for good subjects.

i’ll link outfit details at the very end.
this was a different post than my usual but i couldn’t let all of jazmyne’s pictures sit in my computer. she did such a great job!

and with that, we bid you farewell. until next time!

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!

anti-valentines? i gotchu!

no worries, i have a a girly girl valentine’s outfit in the works too.
i just couldn’t help but post an outfit in this shirt though…i love it!!!! and it’s perfect for those who aren’t too fond of the mushy gushy holiday.
i first saw this on my local nordy’s instagram {speaking of, you should follow me, my most recent ig posts are on my sidebar widget. 🙂 } and i had to have it! i am such a sucker for pizza… spicy italian sausage with jalepeños please…make that a large while you’re at it! so seriously, this shirt is perfect for me. this is a small…so it definitely runs big. pair it with some boyfriends, a riding jacket and some sandals and you have the perfect anti-valentines, casual {but still girly} outfit.

&& and i want to apologize for my awful choice of a backdrop buttttt if you live in the pnw then you are fully aware that the weather is complete poop. and if you don’t live in the pnw, well, now you know. so, there is no way i can do a shoot outside. plus isn’t it about the outfit anyway???

it’s never too cold for a maxi.

i am probably the #1 fan of anything maxi. maxi dress, maxi skirt….maxi pad? HA! just kidding!
seriously, though wearing a maxi dress or a maxi skirt allows for so much wiggle room with everything!
first and foremost, you don’t have to shave your legs! haha that’s the big plus for me! but also, you can wear just about anything with it. i love it’s versatility. not just with accessories and how to wear them but when to wear them. you can wear them for every season and that’s awesome!!!
