Hey, friends! I feel like I've been playing the world's longest game of catch up. Ever feel that way? I'm working through it, and I'm optimistic that by next week I'll be feeling normal again. Thumbs up!
So, Emma had the idea to switch up our Work Wears feature for the new year and share three outfits at a time. Way more fun, right? Emma's full of good ideas.
Casual outfits are my everything. I do wear heels to work sometimes, but a lot of days I keep it way casual. There's a fine line when you're a business owner because I can wear yoga pants to work if I want to (and I have, a lot), but I also feel totally normal when I dress up. And since we do so many different things with our days, I kinda just let my to-do list dress me. So when I'm shooting a video, I dress up more, and when I'm working on my computer, I dress down. Duh. OK. Moving on…
My grandmother has an awesome ritual of taking me out birthday shopping and to lunch every year. We've been doing it ever since I was a little girl (I'm the oldest grandchild). This year I picked these yellow converse, and I think of her every time I wear them.
Outfit: Glasses/Bonlook (I think this style is out of stock at the moment, but they'll be back), Earrings/Vintage (from Jeremy's grandmother), Top/Anthropologie, Jeans/Jessica Simpson, Shoes/Converse.
Got double awkward poses for you here! Couldn't choose between tight-rope-walker and flamingo leg. Niiiiccce.
Outfit: Scarf/Vintage, Top/ Half of Half, Cardigan c/o ModCloth (old), Jeans/Jessica Simpson (again—I have three pairs of these. I wear them so much in the winter.), Boots/Urban Outfitters, Bracelets/Vintage & Madewell, Bag/Gift Shop Brooklyn.
It's challenging for me to break out of the jeans routine in the winter time. Tights work, but not with all my shoes. Leggings are great, but I don't have very many long tops. I'm still working on this, but at least I didn't wear black jeans in every photo. Good enough!
Outfit: Dress/Jessica Simpson, Necklace/LaMalconttenta on Etsy, Glasses/Bonlook (I call these our "Clark Kent glasses"), Shoes/Swedish Hasbeens (c/o ModCloth forever ago).
Thanks so much for reading! Love you guys. Happy weekend! xx. Elsie

I just discovered your blog and I love it! Outfit number 1 is great…and the glasses!Love them!
Cutest outfits! It’s hard to pick my fav, but I think I’d have to go with #2. It’s an outfit I’d most likely wear myself. I love ALL of the shoes! You’re the cutest and I admire your fashion sense so much!
In the first picture it looks like you got short hair – and I think that’d be fabulous! A bit like Audrey Tautou 🙂
Give it a thought.
Absolutely adore the green shirt! So cute.
Adorable. Always. 🙂
It’s ok! I love black jeans too! I challenged myself over the weekend to wear mostly all skirts and dresses! It was really fun.
Where did you get that awesome light fixture in the hall above the stairs in the last photo? I love it! Please share!
love you style.
Interesting and amazing! Great
I love your style Elsie!
I work long hours in an office, and often find it hard to find the time and energy to pick out cool, office appropriate outfits (it’s a very casual office, but flip flops and shorty shorts are NOT appropriate). When I do make an effort, it makes me feel much more confident in myself, and this translates to my work. Your post has totally inspired me this week! Thank you! Hannah x
Love the UO boots, and Clark Kent(cant agree more) glasses…
love the LBD and the yellow converse!
Your outfits are adorable! Love!
I’m so mixed up with my own personal style, but yours is such an inspiration for me. It’s fits so well with being a teacher’s aide/future teacher. Fun, happy, cute. Must find more dresses and COLOR! and someday…some hasbeens! (maybe a graduation gift!)
I absolutely adore your style!
I loved the three outfits Elsie! Cant pick a favorite!
But this yellow All Star is totally cool!!!!
I wish I could wear whatever I want on my days too. But my job is not that casual. 🙁
You look too cute. My fave is the black dress. I have been eying that Anthro top for a while though. Love the necklace! Enjoy the birthday tradition with your grandma! I think it’s sweet.
Your style is so incredibly funky and fun. I love it! And the creative photos are fantastic!
Love the outfits 🙂
I absolutely love you’re glasses! Especially the Clark Kent ones. 🙂
