The title of this post may trick you into thinking an Athleisure OOTD is in store. Sorry, no it's just a shout out to the back ground sign. But, don't get me wrong, I'm making no apologies for this chic AF outfit. At first glance this look is fairly minimal--a blazer, a knit, pants, and loafers. But, the subtle mixing of menswear-inspired footwear and outerwear, with playful trousers, and a curve-enhancing sweater make for some dynamic office apparel.

That's Quite a Coat












And look, it has a hood! 






At first glance, this poncho-esque denim trench may appear a bit ridiculous and over the top. But, I have been semi-obsessed with it for over a year, as it lingered on my Amazon Wish List. When my brother texted asking what he could get me for Xmas I sent this coat his way. Deep down I needed the push of some one else buying it because it's not the most practical outerwear. Of course style doesn't have to be practical, and while I love this coat, it's not meant for the chilly Pittsburgh winter, nor does it gel with my professional wardrobe all that well. This is a coat for mild, non-work days, that I can throw over my tired old "mom" clothes and feel like I'm stepping out with some sort of quirky style. It's a super fun piece paired with my go-to breastfeeding-friendly dress and red-laced hiking boots for a casual boho OOTD.

Holiday Wrap-Up

For this OOTD,the bold red stripes in the skirt and sleeves give a nod to the holiday season, while still being chic.  I love the idea of color-blocking as a theme for holiday dressing, it's graphic and festive without the full force of  straight-up Christmas Sweaters. I plan on wearing this wrap throughout the winter, as the longer length provides warm, the silhouette provides nursing/pumping access, and of course pockets. 

Since it's my last day in the office before the holidays, this will probably be the last post for 2018. What a wild year! I grew my hair out, had another baby, leaned into a more feminine style, then cut all my hair off again. Who knows what the new year will bring, but I intend to keep on outfitting.

Fair Isle Holiday Style

In this post I was all about the comfy coziness of Hygge for outfitting this holiday season. And while this black, white, & grey ensemble isn't oozing with festive flair, the fair isle-esque coatigan, circle midi-skirt, and graphic infinity scarf are feeling the season just a bit. The belt and boots give it some polish for a comfortable end-of-the-year office outfit. I only have this week left to work until the New Year!! Also, I got my hair chopped off--😮💇😁
