Simple Work Attire

 photography by Sharon

I have mentioned before that at heart I am a blue jeans and t-shirt kinda girl.  This is a classy spin on the simple.  This sweater is so soft and comfortable.  It's basic and a staple in my closet.  I can dress is down with shorts (here) or keep it classic with dark wash jeans and heels.  I feel the heels, bag, and red lips really elevate this outfit.  It's what I consider my office uniform.  I love wearing this to work, out to dinner, or just about anywhere.  I have been working hard on getting my closet to a classic platform.

I took these picture's outside the Unscripted Hotel.  I don't know if you recall last year how miserable I was at my last company.  It just wasn't the right fit for me.  That doesn't mean I have ill will toward the owners or the company.  I just couldn't work there.  Anyhow, they re-construction the old Jack Tar Hotel and renamed it Unscripted.  I was apart of a lot of things during the construction and was excited to go check it out.  Wow!  This boutique hotel is very nice.  The bar in the lobby serves the best screwdrivers, the staff are so friendly and helpful, the pool deck is a fun place to grab dinner and relax, plus the parking is so affordable!  I was there around 2 hours and paid $3.  For downtown Durham that is real cheap.  If you are in the area check it out.  You can walk all over the hotel, and they encourage you to.  The art and decor is so modern and fun.  My friend and I enjoyed relaxing and chatting on a couch while sipping cocktails.


  1. Love this! I love jeans and take any opportunity to wear them at work when I can too :)

  2. What a nice and comfortable outfit. I love the heels. I am so glad that you were able to go back and see the finished project. I remember you telling me about it at dinner. So glad you are feeling better too.

  3. Love this outfit! I always love wearing heels with jeans. It takes a casual look to the next level!

  4. I remember your old job didn't suit you and I am so glad the new one is much better for you. This type of outfit would be a work uniform for my current job, too. Love it. The bag and those amazing pumps definitely elevate it! Love the look and man that hotel boutique sounds amazing. Why so cheap?!
