CASUAL WORKWEAR

Hi Lovelies! This week has been pretty crazy for me to say the least. Things are super busy at work, I’ve got some really fun blog collaborations in the works, and we have one house on the market, one getting ready to sell and starting the search for a third … all right before the holidays
( are we crazy? prob ).

When Dan and I first met, we both owned our own homes. Fast forward 3 years, and we’re living in mine and renting his, but the contract recently ended and we’ve decided to list both and start fresh. Dan won’t be back from work until the beginning of December so I’m going solo to see houses this Sunday. I’m really excited about one in particular because from the pictures it looks like it has MAJOR potential. I’m obsessed with decorating & DIY ( AKA channeling my inner Martha Stewart ) so I’m so excited about starting with a blank slate that’s OUR home together. I kinda feel like I’ve hit a wall with our current house and there aren’t many cosmetic changes left to make, at least within a reasonable budget.

The one drawback to this house is that it has a first floor master bedroom. I’m not really down with that. What do you guys think on first floor vs. second floor master bedroom? We don’t have kids yet so would the second floor feel like wasted space? Not sure..TBD on Sunday. I’ll be posting lots of updates on Snapchat if you want to follow along ( kellitesta ).
Now about this outfit. I own this shirt in four different colors and for good reason. It’s super comfy and the perfect top to dress up or down to take you from work to dinner & drinks. I wear them tucked into a pencil skirt or wide leg dress pants or leave untucked with these Jbrand jeans and Tory Burch clutch. This top is 40% off right now and just restocked in all sizes. This leopard scarf is also a fall favorite from my grandma but I linked several similar ones below.

Hope everyone had a great week and thanks for stopping by!

    Your outfit is so cute, im loving the blouse i could do with a few of them. Im not keen on a first floor bedroom i think it depends on whats on the second floor and how many bedroom, we have kids so would probably have it as a playroom rather than a bedroom. Good luck 🙂

    This is a great outfit, casual but chic, I think I could wear this to work but not sure I would wear as high heels as those all day, but the outfit looks fantastic!

    I always prefer casual clothing anytime and this is such a gorgeous outfit which looks so good for you in terms for color combination and comfort. The scarf, purse & shoes adds more value to the entire costume!

    I rarely find a look that I love that I can actually pull off. Thank you for sharing. I already have the goods in the closet to look like you do here but never knew how to put it together.

    The ombre effect is definitely a different take on a scarf. Pretty unique and cool.

    That scarf is adorable! I'm all about free-flowing blouses right now! 🙂
    (Mainly because I've over-indulged on the leftover Hallowen candy!)

    What a really pretty outfit! I really like your clutch as well.

    I wouldn't want a master bedroom on the first floor either. But I know several homes these days are set up like that.
