retrohipmama style: workin’ it

can i start by saying that i had hecka fun getting dressed this week?
oh i can?
cool. i loved everything i wore…but the pics…again…not the best.

i think it’s the sudden increase of other women in my office. we’re growing and just brought on 3 new ladies, who are fabulous by the way. we’re all shoe girls and always want to see what we’re all wearing when we show up. it’s a fun environment that i have missed, being here all alone for such a long time. don’t get me wrong, i’m cool with being the only girl in the room. but having other women around, makes me want to be better. in a lot of different ways. but not in a i’m-actually-better-than-you kinda way. they inspire me. to work harder, to dress better, to be kinder, to comfort more, to nurture, to laugh and to cry more. so i think you’ll be seeing more creative outfits from me, just because i have someone to dress for now. not just the beige walls of this office.


pinstripe vest: kohl’s
chain link love: made by me
peep toe heels: ross
messy room: made by working mom, a busy work at home dad and 2 messy boys

oh so not trying to be sexy, just trying to show the shoes a bit.




kinda scary…yikes. it was the end of the day after a long meeting out of town.

argyle sweater: handed down from a friend
slacks that match perfectly: have had for years
black flats


grey cardi + white tee + black skirt: pieces i’ve had forever. my mom taught me to buy lots of things that couldn’t go too far out of style. so i took her advice and still have these basic pieces to work in.
houndstooth tights + boots: target
belt: kohl’s
necklace: cinnamon*sticks jewelry stamped the boys’ names in the rings but i like to wear them on a chain instead.


orange and white striped shirt + navy cardi: target
jeans + white chucks
fabric flowers: made by me and worn on a headband today.

sorry for the lack of detail and chatter…it’s late as i’m writing this.

have a good week!

i will be linking up to real momma, real style and the pleated poppy. so come check out tons of outfit inspiration!

  1. Looking great! You are adding lots of creativity to your outfits – love it! I’d love if you came and linked this up at my Drab to Fab party on Friday. We celebrate turning normal clothes into fabulous outfits by using a little creativity to dress them up. (We also celebrate jazzed up recipes and DIY’s). Anyway, I’d love to see you this Friday. Here’s a link for all the info you need on the party!

    Hope to see you 🙂
