Some Days

Some days (ok, most days) call for light layers, bright red lipstick, and a comfy pair of flats. Lately this has been my no-brainer outfit for work, and is continuously what I feel most comfortable and confident in. Since graduating with my Master's and starting my full-time job, I've definitely seen a change in my everyday wears (leaning more toward classic and professional rather than the mood of the moment - loud, bold, punky...you get the picture). However, I feel like I'll always have a little bit of that grad student mentality in me, after all, you can take the student out of grad school, but it's awfully hard to take the night owl, evening coffee slinging, jean jacket + lots of buttons wearing, communications theory nerd mentality out of the lifelong student. Am I right?

These Nakato flats from Blowfish Shoes have been on constant repeat lately - perfect for running around in, and perfect for a day at the office. I've always been a sandals everyday in the summertime kind of gal, but I've been trying my best to rock some cute flats and booties at work. These flats are also on super sale right now on the Blowfish Shoes website, so I'm thinking about picking up the two other colors to add some variety in my work wear wardrobe (a slow, but fun progression).

My work day has been going by pretty nicely. I swung by my usual morning coffee stop earlier and the barista said, "See you tomorrow!" His comment gave me a good giggle, and reminded me how much I like being a regular (means I'm starting to get into a groove with my new schedule and daily jam).

What ensemble do you feel most comfortable and confident in?

  1. I love the detailing on your top, the bottom lacy edge is my favorite :)

  2. Do those shoes fit true to size? I'm considering getting a pair.

    1. Hello! Yes, they do! I wear a 7 1/2 and they fit perfectly! Go for them :)

  3. That lace top is gorgeous! And I love your hair like that.

  4. Hi! I wanted to say hi (I'm a new reader) and thank you for your lovely blog! And thank you for leading me to Blowfish Shoes-what a great company. I had to buy a couple of pairs of the Nakatos and I looooove them! Anyway, I could keep gushing about how rad your style is. Cause it is. But I'll save some of my gushing for other comments. :)
