Where: errand running

Why:  I had been searching for pieces just like this since a Piperlime ad that paired tan and red orange together — I love the pairing!  And amazingly, both pieces are major steals from the after-Christmas sales.  I got this sweater from GAP, on sale with a coupon, for less than $2.  And these pants were the same thing — on sale for $13.50, with a $10 off coupon, $3.50.  Wahoo!

In other news, how cute is this necklace?  I know it’s cheesy given my profession, but I love pretty much any piece of jewelry that involves a camera.  Would you wear jewelry that matches what you do for a living?

Where: to the studio

Why: My responsibilities at the studio vary and with that my appropriate attire varies.  Leggings and jeans are my go to for days full of photoshop, and while they also work for client meetings, sometimes I like to get use out of the dressier side of my closet.  This skirt, shirt, tights and booties is something that could easily be worn in a typical office setting with a cute belt and long necklace to add flavor.  But since we’re more causal at the studio, I added a motorcycle vest and pretty scarf to both keep me warm on this windy, windy day(see my skirt flying?!) and to dress it down.

What’s your favorite way to dress down your professional pieces?

Where:  Out for New Year’s Eve!

Why:  The end of the year is always super busy for Ross’s job, so we decided to have a low key New Year’s Eve.  We went to Les Miserables, which we both loved, and out to Noodles and Co for supper.  It’s one of our favorite places to eat.  Even though our plans weren’t that exciting I decided to dress up a little bit anyway, but wanted to be comfy in the theater.  These leggings were just perfect!  I was so excited when I found them a few months ago because I love the look of leather leggings, but not the price tag.  These rubberized ones look enough like leather to please me, and I got them for $30 with a coupon code!  I wore booties with them because I knew I could kick them off once we were seated, but wearing heels always makes leaving the house feel more special.

I hope you all had a fabulous New Year’s Eve!  What did you do?  What did you wear?
