Awkward&Awesome Business Casual

Thursday, April 7, 2011

I have Spring fever but am still waiting for Spring to actually arrive. The temperatures have been fairly mild lately but the mornings are still frosty and hopping into a cold car at 7:15am without proper attire just doesn't appeal to me. So a great alternative to getting all decked out is this wonderful blazer I recently bought at H&M. It's a knit, which means, it's comfortable! I also stumbled upon this amazing pair of flared dress pants from H&M as well. I could have bought so much from their new Spring collections, but I held back and decided to get pieces I will get the most use of right now. It's always fun trying on cute summer dresses and little itty bitty shorts, but I'm going to wait until the weather is a little warmer to start delving into summer clothes.

Since I  always thoroughly enjoy reading Sydney's Awkward & Awesome moments every Thursday over on The Daybook, I decided to share a few of my own A&A moments from the past week. 
~ Your boss yelling at someone next to you and trying not to look
~ Seeing someone you know while getting your hair done (having a head full of tinfoil isn't the best way to get reacquainted)
~ Getting a virus on your computer and the IT guy looking through your browser history and seeing a million blogs and fashion searches (oops!)
~ A grown man asking how he can get a part time job at my work so he can work next to me. Seriously? I'm half your age bud!

~ Getting into your car and seeing 18 degrees celsius 
~ Putting away your winter boots and pulling out summer wedges
~ Fresh new highlights
~ Throwing on your cozy clothes after a long day

Have an Awkward and Awesome Thursday folks!
Blazer/Tank/Pants: H&M
Clutch & Belt: Thrifted
Shoes: Payless

  6. Oh.. And I'm literally laughing out loud at the virus bit of your awkwardness! I'm always sooo worried that's going to happen to me. My husband is an IT guy and I always call him first if I have an issue on my computer to try to avoid someone else seeing how much I'm on blogger and facebook. lol

  7. Thanks for your comments over on my blog! I really appreciate your feedback.

    I love this blazer! There's something so casually chic about a blazer and jeans that fit well, isn't there?
