#OOTD - Comfy Business Casual Blend

Hey Chics!

Have you ever woken up not wanting to get dressed up AT ALL? That was me today! I woke up wanting to wear extremely comfy clothes (plus it’s super HOT in Florida). The thing was… I had a business meetup today, so I had to come up with a Comfy Business Casual Blend, or CBCB (I literally just made that up lol).

I looked in my dresser and picked out my favorite shirt, pants, and shoes. I combined three of my favorite articles of clothing together, and it actually created the PERFECT ensemble! After doing a quick natural makeup look, I was ready to take on the day as Operation Comfy was in full effect. Let’s just say I had a great meeting and Operation Comfy was a huge success (and I received several compliments, too)!

Below is my Comfy Business Casual Blend (sounds like a coffee flavor) Outfit of the Day:

  • La Femme Shirt at Cotton On

    This shirt may look familiar because it made it to my 8 Basic Fashion Essentials - Look Book post! This sleeveless shirt is very loose and was the perfect tuck-in shirt for the hot weather I was about to experience!

  • Pinstripe Cigarette Pants at SHEIN

    I have had these pants for over 8 months, and they’re still kickin’! What’s great about these pants is that they are elastic, so they STRETCH! There’s nothing like good stretchy pants to make an outfit!

  • Larisa Pump at ShoeDazzle

    Since I am a #ShoeDazzlePartner, I get complimentary shoes every now and then to review! When you think ‘heels,’ your first thought normally is ‘uncomfortable,’ but these are the contrary. The heel is the perfect height and it is a WEDGE heel, which makes a huge difference when it comes to comfort! These were the perfect pair of heels to complete my entire look (plus they matched my shirt).

I hope you enjoyed my OOTD! Let me know in the comments what your favorite Comfy outfit is!

8 Basic Fashion Essentials - Look Book

Hey Chics!

We all have our OOTDs, but what about those days where you want to just go “Back To Basics”? I have many outfits where I’m constantly thinking:

“What shoes can I match with that?”

“That’s not work-friendly.”

“The only way I can where that is if I put my face on, but I really don’t feel like putting on makeup…”

“I need ‘Roll Out of Bed clothes’.”

Here are just a few items I purchased that are simple and easy to pair with ANYTHING:

Unlimited Jewelry!? YES, PLEASE! - Rocksbox

Hey Chicsters!

Now, you know we've been down this road, BUT...

Who Doesn't LOVE a good subscription box!?

This one in particular, I don't talk about a lot, but THAT IS GOING TO CHANGE!

I LOVE getting new designer jewelry in the mail monthly from Rocksbox! It's so EASY:

  1. Pick your favs & Add them to your wish list
  2. Receive your favorite pieces in the mail via your stylist
  3. Where them for as long as you want
  4. Buy what you love, Send the others back
  5. Get MORE designer jewelry
  6. REPEAT!

I love the whole "Try before you Buy" aspect of it, because there is no pressure when it comes to this box. I can send every single piece back if I want! I get unlimited designer jewelry every month for $21/month, and it's totally worth every penny!

I not only get designer jewelry, but I get my own personal stylist who sends me specific jewelry types based on my personality. I can tell her that I have a special occasion coming up, and I need statement jewelry, and she will find the perfect pieces for my event! Isn't that neat!? I can also review each piece I received and tell my stylist what I liked and disliked about it (and send them a photo as well).

Another great thing about this program is the Shine Credit. Every month, I receive $21 in Shine Credit towards my purchase of any items in my box (this cannot be used for sale items)! I also get a lovely discount if I decide to purchase the entire set I was sent! It is quite the deal (and quite tempting)!

Here's my set from the month of July:

 
Rudiment - Alcatraz Hoops in Gold    Perry Street - Mila Stacking Rings    Kendra Scott - Elisa Necklace in Gold Dusted Glass

Rudiment - Alcatraz Hoops in Gold

Perry Street - Mila Stacking Rings

Kendra Scott - Elisa Necklace in Gold Dusted Glass

 

Guess what I decided to purchase....

 
 

The Kendra Scott Elisa Necklace in Gold Dusted Glass stood out to me the most as it fits EVERY occasion! This Gem is perfect for work and play! ;)

Thanks to inviting my friend to get her first month FREE, I was able to get more credit towards my purchase, and I paid a WHOPPING $4 for this $50 necklace!

Yes, you heard me right... $4...

Don't miss out on this awesome subscription box and all it has to offer! Sign up Here!

Also get your first month FREE using my code: 'MARTIKABRIANNEXOXO' :)

Let me know what you think about this box!

HAPPY SHOPPING!
