Weekly Recap #35, 2022



Don’t you just love three-day weekends? It was a long (albeit busy, in a good way) work week and a full weekend of hosting one of my best high school friends. Needless to say, I’m so grateful to have tomorrow off! I need to catch up on some major Zs and am looking forward to having a rest and recovery day after several social weekends in a row. In the meantime, here are my chic workwear outfits of the week!


Monday, August 29

Today definitely felt like a Monday, so I threw on one of my go-to professional dresses that’s so easy to throw on when I’m feeling lazy. After work, I had another soccer game and took a ball straight to the nose—ouch! But as one of my teammates said, it was “a good hustle” lol.

I’ve been trying to break out some of my less-worn pieces, so I decided to style this navy collared top in a monochromatic look. I got this blouse in high school when the dress-code required collared shirts but have hardly worn it. Even though it’s still not my favorite top, I like how this professional outfit came together.

Navy Blouse: Gap Outlet, $30 ($6.00 per wear) | Blue Skirt: Francesca’s, $38 ($2.38 per wear), last worn here | Blue Flats: DSW, $5 ($0.23 per wear), last worn here


Wednesday, August 31

After a busy day at work, a bunch of my coworkers and I got drinks and dinner at a nearby restaurant for an end-of-summer get-together. It was so much fun to get to know everyone outside of the office! Afterwards, I took a few blog photos in today’s outfit for an upcoming collab, featuring my new short-sleeve sweater. More to come soon!

Sweater: DR2 by Daniel Rainn, gifted by brand | Mustard Pants: JCPenney, $20 ($0.80 per wear), last worn here | Leopard Flats: Target, $20 ($0.71 per wear), last worn here | Purse: Antique mall, $8 ($8.00 per wear)


Thursday, September 1

I had another busy day of meetings, followed by a night of cleaning my apartment—funnn. I wore this leopard shift dress, which I belted with my snakeskin sandals and layered under my denim jacket. I’m not sure how I felt about this outfit, though—does the blue clash with the vibe of the dress? Also, the dress is a really cheap material that always gets static-y and clings to me. I wonder if I should just give it away, but I still like the idea of the dress and find myself struggling to get rid of it.

Leopard Dress: JCPenney, $11 ($2.20 per wear), last worn here | Denim Jacket: JCPenney, $19 ($0.11 per wear), last worn here | Snakeskin Sandals: DSW, $30 ($3.75 per wear), last worn here


Friday, September 2

It was a tough time getting through work on a Friday before a long weekend, but afterwards, I picked up my friend from a coffee shop on my way home! We had a great night in my apartment catching up, watching the lightning storm from my deck, and making gluten-free Oreo milkshakes. Fun fact, this is actually the outfit I wore on my first day of work!

Floral Dress: Costco, $20 ($1.67 per wear), last worn here | Green Cardigan: Nordstrom, $30 ($2.14 per wear), last worn here | Beige Flats: Nordstrom Rack, $40 ($0.91 per wear), last worn here


Saturday, September 3

My friend and I hiked around Red Rocks Amphitheatre this morning, got lunch in Golden, and then watched a movie in my apartment. After dinner, we went out to the Grizzly Rose, which is the country bar in town! We had such a blast people watching and trying to learn the line dances. I didn’t have any tops that were particularly fit for the country vibe, so I just went with this tank and my denim shorts. I also tried a new eyeshadow look and loved how it turned out (usually I’m trash at makeup, so any success story is exciting).

Black Crop Top: American Eagle, $8 ($1.33 per wear) | Denim Shorts: Target, $18 ($0.90 per wear), last worn here | White Sneakers: Primark, $10 ($1.11 per wear)


Sunday, September 4

The two of us went to the neighborhood farmers’ market this morning and sipped our lemonades in the shade for a while as we chatted and watched all the cute dogs walk by. We then went to this adorable hole-in-the-wall coffee shop that’s half café, half plant store—there was a lil’ greenhouse inside and swings for chairs! So cool. I dropped her off at the airport, caught up with my aunt for a bit, and then had a much-needed, lazy afternoon at my place. I am strugggling to keep my eyes open long enough to finish this blog post. I love this outfit though! I’ve never paired these pieces together and thought it was the perfect vibe for a casual Sunday.

Olive Green Sweater Tank: Francesca’s, $15 ($3.75 per wear), last worn here | Denim Skirt: American Eagle, $24 ($4.80 per wear), last worn here | Brown Sandals: DSW, $19 ($0.23 per wear), last worn here | Leopard Belt: Francesca’s, $9 ($0.90 per wear), last worn here

How was your week? Got any fun plans for the day off tomorrow? I hope y’all are having a great long weekend!


Miles of smiles,

  1. All of these are winners! I have skipped several ootd lately as I have gotten lazy with taking pictures.. So much to do, so little time! At least I am keeping ahead with my blog pictures. The long weekend was good to catch on some sleep. I am hoping I feel less pressed for time soon: I think this week is going to be more laid back even if i have a to do list.
