Guys. Big news. The department I work for has officially declared every Friday, Jeans Day! Every now and then, I have written a Work It Wednesday post where I don a pair of jeans for the office.  And every time, I am always as excited as the previous Jeans Day. So imagine how elated I was when this announcement came out. Now, I get to stretch my non-work clothes one extra day each week. But of course, this exception comes with some rules and regs. No ripped jeans, no sneakers, no crazy jean washes, etc, etc. Basically, one must still keep up a professional appearance.

Last weekend, Sam (La Petite Pear) came all the way from the Big Apple to visit Beantown. Fact: Sam was my very first blogger friend I made almost two years ago when I started this lil ole blog. I love having out of town guests because it gives me the opportunity to be a tourist in my own city. Faneuil Hall, shopping in Back Bay and walking through the North End with a pit stop at Mike’s Pastry (duh)! And this blogger get together would not be complete without a mini OOTD shoot. I’m sure our hubbies were thankful of the relief they got, even if it was one session. Once we shot our looks, it was off to meet a few of my fave Boston bloggers for brunch at Forum.

When it comes to pulling an outfit together for the office, I am a fan the shirt dress. Just do up a row of buttons and voila! Inst-outfit. Throw on a pair of tights, heels and jewels and it’s out the door I go. And one can never go wrong with the classic black and white combo. Easy-peasy!

I love my heels as much as the next girl, but let’s be honest, there is no way I am wearing them while running my errands. It’s slippery out there and the overly salted walkways can do a number on our shoes. So the practical thing to do is throw on a pair of sneakers. But not just any pair! This pair shimmers and glimmers with perfect pops of rose gold. I clearly love a good black and gold combo, as evident by the sprinkling of gold accessories.

Behind Every Blogger….

Dan the Man

Is a great photographer! And lucky for me, mine is my hubby. Without him, my blog would be a lot less colorful. I know taking blog pics is not at the top of his list, but he does it, with a smile (most times). Happy wife, happy life, right? Giving Dad a shout-out too, for being my ¬†stand-in photog when Dan’s not around. Aren’t dad’s just the bee’s knees?! I know many bloggers out there are in the same boat. So let’s give a shout-out to our boyfriends/husbands/dads/brothers/guy friends who put up with our blogging shenanigans. Thank you, guys, you are totes the bestest! #thankyou
