AJ Wears :: Traveling pants

This week might be strange and sporadic. I've traveled to Hilton Head, South Carolina for work this week so while I'm hoping I can post some cute outfits and maybe some travel tips, sometimes things just get weird. Or backed up. I snapped these on my balcony this afternoon when I got in - this was my airport outfit for the day. My coziest, most comfortable jeans - gold loafers - and a peplum and blazer that as it turns out, make me look incredibly short waisted. Go figure.

I like to wear my bulkier or unnecessary items when I'm traveling so I don't have to pack them and take up room in my suitcase. I threw on the blazer just for fun and some extra color to add to my outfits this week - the boyfriend jeans won't be worn the most often, but I love them and they're so soft they feel like pajamas, so they're perfect for travel. Once I arrived on the island, it was HOT so I tossed the jacket and jeans for some shorts and sandals. I later spilled steak sauce on this white shirt. So, so me.

So I hope I can show y'all some cute outfits this week. We'll find out.

AJ Wears :: Something Casual

Okay, here's the thing. I can TOTALLY do casual. Kind of. My mom bought me this shirt for Christmas and then told me later she figured I didn't like it because she "never saw it on my blog". The thing is, I grab this shirt all of the time to go to dinner, or meet friends for drinks, or just run to Walgreens for some NyQuil. I still can't manage to throw on flats, though. So sorry.

But here's the thing. These heels are SO PRACTICAL for me! They're cushy in the ball of the feet and a "mid heel" as far as I'm concerned. I love them, but as a suede heel they might be more suited for the cooler months. I bought these with some strappy sandals for 40% off so they were worth the add on.

Today I went to the eye doctor. My bread was molded so I ate just turkey and cheese without the sandwich. And I wore this cute shirt with BF jeans and cute pumps. Fashion! Blogger! Hurrah!

AJ Wears :: Jeans and a Tee

While I do wear every outfit (or I would, if it's a special post) on my blog, my day to day clothing can be pretty basic. On an average work day, I wake up, change into yoga pants, and walk from the bedroom to my office. I'll put on real pants to run errands or if I need to run to downtown to do some work - but if my plans don't extend beyond that, I'm usually pretty casual. Today I woke up, had a morning meeting with some banana bread, got dressed, dropped by the radio station for lunch to do some voice tracking, and went back home to work some more. Tonight, I'll make some dinner and perhaps go to the gym. Nothing to get dressed up for.

My off-duty look is usually a t-shirt or fun sweatshirt with my most comfortable jeans and something flat. I like a large bag to carry everything - camera, ipad, phone, snacks, etc - and this one from JustFab is HUGE and might become my new favorite carry all. I usually throw on a fun necklace or scarf to make the whole thing more presentable, but I can get pretty casual if I know I'm not going to see anyone or do anything. Most days, I wouldn't bother taking a picture of any of these outfits, but I thought it was important to show what I like to wear when I'm not "on-call", if you will. I love getting dressed up and making fun outfits, but no one can live like that every.single.day. Sometimes, you've gotta just chill out, and that's okay too. PS - these jeans from JF are definitely becoming a fast favorite. The waist is high enough that I never feel exposed, and they're just as soft as butter. I'm sorry if I wear them with every outfit. Or I'm not. Whatever.

PPS - I've had these Chucks since Jr High and I love them. They're always perfect, no matter the occasion.
