Casual Catch-Up

In line with my work related catch-up, here are a few more casual outfits. Luckily I work in an office and industry where casual attire is not only acceptable, but often expected, so I can easily rotate between more “work professional” and casual outfits based on my mood.

I dressed up a simple jeans and tee outfit with a great statement necklace and sparkly Toms. I think these jeans are absolutely my new favorite, I find myself reaching for them constantly.

Another bubble day! With our warm Seattle summers, bright colors always make me happy. This dress is from Target, and ridiculously comfortable and easy to wear.

Finally, super simple! Sometimes you just feel like throwing on jeans, a t-shirt, and Sperry’s.

20 pounds, DVF, and a DietBet Champ


So, I did it! I lost exactly 20 pounds in 8 weeks, which was 11.1% of weight loss, and I won the competition at my work!

For weigh-in day, I wore my new Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress, which was my “waist under 30 inches reward” from a few weeks back.


Wrap dresses are fabulous for most body shapes, but I did make sure to wear a bandeau over my bra just to make sure I didn’t overexpose at work!

I paired the dress with simple nude heels, and statement gold earrings.

I’m a huge fan! It was my first DVF purchase and definitely a worthwhile splurge.
