daily outfit: the “snow snow snow" edition.

i was supposed to be downtown first thing for a meeting with Indiana Public Schools; however, it’s snowing, again, here in Indy & my meeting was rescheduled.

am i complaining? nope. it’s winter, snow happens.

plus, i’m wearing one of my favorite vests & that makes up for the -10 windchill.

hope your day is off to a warm start,

daily outfit: the “gingham & crystals" edition.

santa gifted me with this crystalized cashmere sweater and it’s quicky become a favorite.

it’s the right amount of glam & prep… how perfect.

daily outfit: the “mixed up" edition.

this is what happens when you want to wear dress pants and a button down and brown boots and bright pink….

happy thursday.

daily outfit: the “holiday work party" edition.

not only is today the last Monday before Christmas break,

today is our all-day holiday work party!

never one to miss an opportunity to dress for the holiday, 

i opted for classy Christmas versus cheesy Christmas…. ya dig?

so, here we are…layers & layers & layers… just the way i like ‘em.

daily outfit: the “polka dots & plaid" edition.

i’m headed up to Lafayette this afternoon/evening to attend a pretty significant dinner/presentation, and i can think of no better outfit than one involving polka dots & plaid.

because if you can’t be the festive table decoration, why not look like one?

daily outfit: the “it’s December!” edition.

bring on the sparkle & puffy vests & tartan plaid!

i realize i don’t wear hair bows as often as i used to (probably a good thing?), but i am a big fan of these hair baubles from Anthropologie.

they’re glitzy without looking like a show girl…now, that’s my kind of jam.

daily outfit: the “leather love” edition.

I’m spending 1/2 the day at a conference & the other 1/2 in the office.

this has nothing to do with my outfit except that I wanted something classy yet sassy.

enter a turtleneck (wha?!?!) & leather, that’ll do.

daily outfit: the “too much color for a Tuesday?" edition.

whoever said that you need to wear neutrals with colored pants is seriously disturbed (<—name that movie reference).

this morning, it took me two seconds to realize i should wear pink gingham with cobalt blue.

i mean, why not?

daily outfit: the “top knot" edition.

almost every time i throw my hair into a top knot, i have flashbacks to chopping off my hair— at the age of 5 and again at 23.

i have no plans to go under the knife…er…scissors ever again, and if wearing a top knot from time to time reminds me of that ridiculous promise, than so be it.

also, preppy tuesday is in full effect.

daily outfit: the “school visit” edition.

today, i will visit my 3rd school this week.

even having lived in indiana for 20 years, there are so many small towns & schools i have never visited, nor heard of before this week.

it’s nice to get out of the office, especially on a Friday afternoon, to witness schools successfully promoting physical activity & healthy eating.

it makes me happy to watch little kiddos running around, trying new foods, smiling & playing in the name of our organization.

i always knew i wanted a non-traditional job (in the sense that i’ve never seen myself as a corporate suit person), & this time of year, i am more than happy to get out on the road, take in the autumn scenery, & gather success stories of Hoosier schools all over the state.

after all, #winnersdrinkmilk!

Hi! I'm Brooke. Indianapolis is my home & I welcome you to my little nook. I'm a twenty-something girl who was born in the land of corn (Okl.), attended undergrad in the true Sea of Red (Neb.), & eventually found her way back home again after picking up a couple letters behind her name (Kan.) while clinging to an adorable Maltipoo named Bentley. Thank you for stopping by & please feel free to leave a comment (or ask a question) under the "Be Kind" tab at the top... xo, B
