I've mentioned a few times recently that my workwear has really changed lately since I started my new job. This is a pretty good idea of how I dress for work now. So far it has been a lot of jeans with sweaters and some fun- but not a crazy statement-accessories. I have been loving this pom pom sweater from Chicwish lately. Although it looks to be chunky knit, it feels very light and has been great in this warm winter. I'll have to figure out a sort of workwear uniform again once we get to spring, but this works for now! Although I have a feeling it will be lots of t-shirt dresses and sneakers, but you know I'll be posting about it once we get there!

I've been into bold tones so far in 2020, but I'm bringing it back to some muted colors with this olive green and blush pink combo. I wore this look to explore an amazing new exhibit at the Mint Museum in uptown Charlotte, you have to go see it if you're local! I also would probably wear this outfit to work if I was still in a corporate office. I am back in Charlotte after 6 days in Atlanta for work, and it is going to be so nice to get back into my routine again. I had done so many quick trips spanning from before Christmas, so it will be very nice to stay put for awhile!

I've been all about the bold colors this winter, and I'm keeping it up with this cobalt sweater! I've paired it with some old favorites, these coated AG jeans that have just a slight leather-y look and some ever-versatile OTK boots. I also happened to still have a cobalt headband from high school that I brought back out for this outfit, and I love the little bit of extra color that it brings. Since we've been having a very warm January, I've been wearing a lot of looks like this one lately. No coat needed, all about the bold sweaters! P.S. I'm probably going to be a little absent on Instagram stories this week as I'm on a work trip!

Red Coat

Say hello to the coat of my dreams! I'm obviously a big fan of Gal Meets Glam dresses (you might remember the black holiday dress, blue spring dress, windowpane check dress, or tweed dress I've already styled), and I was so excited when they launched a coat collection. I received the red Emilia coat for Christmas this year, and I might have worn it while it's still a little bit too warm on more than one occasion. We have been having a very warm January this year and I've almost been looking forward to the colder days, just so I can wear with this coat! I obviously love the shade of red, and think the ruffle cuff and bow pocket details are the perfect feminine touches. But if red isn't your color, it is also available in pink!

26 Facts About Me for My 26th Birthday

Today is my 26th birthday! I'll admit I'm not much of a "birthday person", I've kept the celebrations pretty low key since I've been out of school. But it is always fun to get a blog post together for it every year. I've seen a lot of other bloggers reflect on their new age and how they have changed since the last one. But I pretty much just did all of that last week for New Year's....so scroll down for 26 facts about me for my 26th year!

1. This is likely a pretty well known fact around here, but I trained in classical ballet for 18 years.
2. I entered college as a dance major, but finished with an Arts Management degree.
3. I also graduated college a semester early, saving myself from another winter in Erie, PA.
4. My least favorite subjects in school were math and science.
5. I was really in to photography in high school, which I think lead me to start blogging.
6. My blog first started on tumblr while I was in high school (2012). Shoutout to those of you who have been reading since then!
7. I don't mention it often here, but I'm catholic and I always attended catholic school.
8. Going off of that, I met TJ through church. Well, that's the short form of the story. The full story is for another post...
9. I have 1 sibling, a brother that is 3 years younger than me.
10. I didn't pay much attention to sports growing up, but have started to like watching football (both college and NFL) over the last few years.
11. A fact that typically surprises people about me is that I'm a fan of rap music.
12. My favorite shows to rewatch on Netflix are Portlandia and Parks and Recreation.
13. I need at least 1 cup of coffee to get through the day, but usually just 1.
14. I've always kept a messy room/apartment. I'm mostly just really bad at keeping my clothes organized.
15. I've always been a night owl, and I don't think I could ever change that.
16. I tend to eat the same foods everyday for a long time before growing tired of them. But I think that is because I always was (and still kind of am) a picky eater.
17. I didn't like any form of exercise outside of a dance class until after college. In gym class growing up, I used to practice my turns on the sidelines.
18. I only wear gold toned jewelry, and do not like to mix metals.
19. I'm short, but I prefer wedges in the summer or ankle boots in the winter to heels most of the time.
19. I grew up with dogs and I don't have my own dog now, but I would love to have a corgi one day.
20. I've gotten in to consistently cooking and eating healthier over the last year.
21. I never liked beer until I moved to Charlotte, but all of the breweries in town changed that. Mostly with the beers that don't really taste like beer, especially the coffee stouts!
22. I took French through high school, and our class took a trip to Paris and the Northeast of France the summer before my senior year.
23. My favorite season is summer, but I always need lots of sunscreen.
24. I always listen to podcasts while I drive, some of my favorites include: How I Built This, The Glossy Podcast, Bad on Paper, Office Ladies, and Conan O'Brien Needs a Friend.
25. I rarely ever have my nails unpainted, and I almost always do them myself.
26. I'm celebrating my birthday today, but my dad's birthday was yesterday. So we always have a double celebration!
