3.21.20 – What Would've Been

Hello World,

We are in the midst of the COVID-19. Home bound. Social distancing. I am working from home, which means usually sweats, no makeup, and hair in a ponytail or bun.

I had taken blog photos the Saturday before we were told we’d be working from home, and hey, why not share what I would’ve worn. I’ve bought a few things prior to being home bound, as well as after, and I can still share those items.

We’re not sure how long social distancing and quarantining will actually last, but here is the first week.

OUTFIT OPTION 1

I wore my ribbed black sweater from Target. It is quite long, so wears like a tunic, which is perfect for various reasons. I tucked the bottom into my the bottom of my bra, for a more cropped look. Similar sweaters can be found here, and here.

The midi skirt was a purchase from Target’s brand Universal Thread a while back. Similar skirts can be found here, and here. This skirt has given me numerous looks. 

I wore a pair of leather and suede booties from Toms. They are beyond comfortable. And worth the splurge! Similar booties can be found here and here.

For my purse, I chose a black crossbody purse that I purchased from Marshall’s a few years ago. This has been a great purse, it is the perfect size, and black goes with [almost] anything! Similar purses can be found here, and here.

I loved 101 Dalmatians growing up, and my aunt and then cousin had a Dalmatian and I loved them both. Nickel & Suede came out with Spotted Cork Leather earrings, and I HAD to have it! I bought the large.

For my clean lipstick, I am wearing Beautycounter’s Color Intense Lipstick in Backstage, a perfect beige pink nude.

OUTFIT OPTION 2

I wore a high neck sleeveless bodysuit from boohoo with my outfit. Similar can be found here, and here.

Overtop, I wore an oversized black Topshop cardigan I grabbed in the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. The cardigan has been my go to on lazy weekends. Actually this entire look is often my casual weekend look, but with some accessories, it can be made perfect for work! Similar cardigans can be found here, and here.

I am a huge fan of linen pants. I already had a pair of black, and wanted a more neutral color. I bought these beige linen pants from Amazon this past summer. They are BEYOND comfortable.

I wore a pair of Rothy’s The Point in Black Solid. I have been wanting a pair of Rothy’s for a while and finally took the plunge. I felt I would be able to get a lot of use out of them while in the office, and they are machine washable! I did order a whole size up in The Point. I haven’t tried other styles yet, but am thoroughly enjoying The Point’s! If you would like $20 off, click here.

For my purse, I chose a black crossbody purse that I purchased from Marshall’s a few years ago. This has been a great purse, it is the perfect size, and black goes with [almost] anything! Similar purses can be found here, and here.

I wore a pair of large knife edge hoop earrings from Target.

Layered necklaces are all the rage right now and have been for over a year (I mean my grandma always wore layered necklaces at least ever since I was born). I love the pendant layered necklaces, and when I came across these Target Chain Link with Coin Charms Layered Necklace I couldn’t pass them up.

For my clean lipstick, I am wearing Beautycounter’s Color Intense Lipstick in Backstage, a perfect beige pink nude.

My EyeBuyDirect glasses are the large Bilbio glasses, prescription with blue light protection.

OUTFIT OPTION 3

I chose a camo jacket I purchased from JustFab two years ago. Years ago I wanted a camo jacket, but never actually came around to purchasing one till I came across this one while looking at my monthly boutique. I loved the look of the jacket, structure, and color. Similar jackets can be found here, and here.

I wore a short sleeve, flowy, white shirt, that I purchased from Amazon.com. This top is super comfortable, and I felt made a great addition to my outfit. Similar tunics can be found here, and here.

I paired my tunic and coat with a pair of faux leather leggings. I purchased these leggings from Nordstrom, after quite a search. I initially saw these particular leggings on Ali Luvs. They were super affordable, and I loved seeing someone else where them. I made sure to read the reviews and sizing, since you never know the fit with faux leather. They came and fit extremely well. I didn’t want to pay an arm and a leg for faux leather leggings, but also wanted them to look good. Similar leggings can be found here, and here.

I wore a pair of Rothy’s The Point in Black Solid. I have been wanting a pair of Rothy’s for a while and finally took the plunge. I felt I would be able to get a lot of use out of them while in the office, and they are machine washable! I did order a whole size up in The Point.

I wore a pair of $9.99 high waisted black jeans from H&M that are my favorite pair of jeans ever!

OUTFIT OPTION 5

To start off my look today, I chose a pink sweatshirt from Target’s brand Who What Wear. I bought this sweatshirt over a few years ago. I love the mutton sleeves. I love the color. It is a super cute sweater. Similar sweatshirts can be found here, and here.

I front tucked my sweater in my button-fly rockstar jeans from Old Navy. Similar jeans can be found here, and here.

I wore a pair of nude loafers that I got from DSW. Similar loafers can be found here, and here.

With my outfit, I used a beige, almost blush pink, clutch from Amazon.com. It is quite big which will be able to hold a lot of items, and a chain for a crossbody.

For my clean lipstick, I am wearing Beautycounter’s Color Intense Lipstick in Backstage, a perfect beige pink nude.

SATURDAY March 14th

I wore my utility jacket from Target. I LOVE this utility jacket! I have had it for a few years now. Jackets are a great way to make more diverse outfits, or a nice addition for a Spring outfit (or Fall). Since this particular utility jacket is a few years old, it is no longer available, but similar utility jackets can be found here, and here.

I cannot wear graphic tees or any writing on shirts to work, so on the weekends I can delve into them. I chose to wear a tee I picked up in Paris. The premise of this outfit doesn’t have to be the Paris tee, but it could be any graphic tee (I liked this one because of the colors that go with the green neutral). Similar tees can be found here.

I front tucked my sweater in my button-fly rockstar jeans from Old Navy. Similar jeans can be found here, and here.

I wore a pair of Rothy’s The Point in Black Solid. I have been wanting a pair of Rothy’s for a while and finally took the plunge.

I truly feel like a red lip is always a must. I have been using Beautycounter’s Color Intense Lipstick and their matte red is Girls’ Night.

This has been what I’ve looked like for the majority of the week. Leggings, sweatshirt, cozy socks, and hair up.

I’ve come up with some sort of routine, mostly for the weekday. I still enjoy carefree weekends of lounging.

Weekdays:

I’m working from home still 8 hours a day.

Try to take a walk on my lunch break.

Try to do a 21 day fix workout.

Maybe take a second walk.

I’ve been working on a workbook that takes about 30-60 minutes.

TV and lounging.

Maybe a facetime/call with a family member and frequent texts.
