Outfit of the day: black skinny jeans



Outfit Details:

top - Winners, cardigan - Old Navy, jeans - Gap, shoes - Connie, necklace - H&M

Considering my lifestyle as a WAHM, you would think that I would dress in jeans most of the time. If you follow my blog, you know that the reverse is actually true. My hairdresser commented recently on how nicely I always dress, especially considering that I work from home. She was surprised to find out that I work far into geek territory (IT developer), and had thought that I was in a creative field like writer or artist. I found that extremely flattering since, in my opinion, I am the furthest from a creative type.

Still, I suppose it is pretty common to dress down if you can. When DH worked from home, he was found solidly in jeans, t-shirts and was rarely found clean-shaven. He can work like that, I can't. When I do the XX chromosome equivelent, I find that I am extremely unproductive. When I look pulled together, then I work that way as well. Not to say you can't look pulled together in jeans, yoga pants or tees. But I personally just don't feel that way when I do.

So this is about the most casual that I get when I'm working from home. I feel good, and confident, and pretty, and most importantly... productive.

I completely agree with you. I co-own a fostercare in my home and jeez is there difference in my productivity when I get up and get dressed from when I get up and stay in p.j.s. You always look great, this look is no exception!

I love your casual look! Yay for mint cardigans:) I am the same way - what I wear plays a huge role in how a feel/how productive I am. I work in an office environment, so I can't wear jeans, etc. However, I do notice a huge difference in how I feel if I take the time to put an outfit together that I love vs. just throwing on some black slacks and a button up.

I adore that colour cardigan with the printed top! You look fabulous!

Nerdy people can be stylish too! It doesn't have to always be the artists, musicians or writers that are well dressed. As a math teacher, which BTW is the epitome of nerdy, I'm trying to defy that preconception.

I'm the complete opposite of you! If I were to work at home, I'd be a complete slob. I barely have motivation to change out of pajamas on the weekend! :(
