Apologies for being a little MIA for a few weeks. We have a board of directors meeting coming up and planning/coordinating it is, like, half of my job so I’ve been really busy. Then Daylight Savings Time ended and made me really tired, but I’m back with an outfit round up. I wish I could tell you that the photo quality is going to get better soon but I just don’t know when that will happen. And these outfits are a little old — I wore them when it was still warm outside — but they’re good ones, so I wanted to share!

Here’s a closer look at each outfit.

I got this dress in the spring but I wore it for the first time recently because it just screams ‘Fall’ to me. I’ve already gotten several compliments on it so I know it was a good choice. It came without a belt, so I added this one that I already had. I like the way it looks, but with it came with a fabric belt in a matching color that I could tie around my waist. Anyway, still a good choice.

I have these pants in burgundy and when I saw they were available in black, I knew I had to have them. They’re sateen jeggings/leggings from Loft, and they’re super soft and comfy. I’ve been on the look out for a good pair of black jeans so these are a win. I’ll wear them all fall, winter AND spring. Can’t beat that. This blouse is also great for the summer.

I think this is my all-time favorite top, and my number 1 work outfit! The top is so pretty and feminine, and I love the floral pattern with its soft palette of pinks, blues, and grays. I wore this to a board meeting for my job in August, and then at least 10 more times (or more) since then. I’d wear it every week.

This was the perfect casual Fall outfit to round out a long, rough week. I love how bright and happy this yellow top is, and that it’s suitable (in my book) for both Spring and Fall. It reminds me of daffodils.
