Back to Business

Blouse (H&M); Skirt (New York & Company); Shoes (Naturalizer); Karma Bracelet (LuckyVitamin.com); Jennifer Hoffman Photography

It's amazing how having a simple Monday off can put you completely into vacation mode...  So with an alarm much too early, extra caffeine, and a little reluctance - it's back to work today.  And what better way to kick start productivity than a pencil skirt and blouse.... and when the hair's up - you know I mean business ;)

I like the subtle stripe in the blouse, makes it just a little bit different :) I had to go into the office yesterday and that was pretty hard when I saw everyone else going to the beach!

HAHA! Love it: "When the hair's up, you know I mean business"! You look gorgeous and LOVE your hair this way! Pencil skirt and blouse suites you well :) :) :)

I can most certainly meet up tomorrow if you still can! What time works best for you... I'm usually home from work around 5:30 so anytime after 6 is ideal for me! Can't wait!

Ahhh...I just came off of a 4-day weekend and can totally relate. And how is it that it still feels like the weekend went by too fast.

Really like that top! And I agree...don't mess with me when I've got my bun on ;)

I'm smiling because I know the feeling well. When you dress the part on your way out the door, you just feel more productive by the time you arrive at work. Wearing your hair in a bun shows off your jewellery nicely.
