Jules in Flats - Winter Outfit Ideas for Work (Business Casual Workwear on a Budget)

Jules in Flats - Winter Outfit Ideas for Work (Business Casual Workwear on a Budget)

Hi everyone!  How are you?!

I wore the Goldilocks dress I was talking about last week to work this week and then to our holiday party/dinner afterwards.  What do you think of the fit?  As a reminder, or in case you haven't been following this dress saga,  I ended up keeping the Petite Small.  I'm pretty happy with it actually, it's not too long or too short, and it's a little bit loose in the torso which means it can hide all that food I ate at the holiday party!

In shopping news, my Cyber Week orders finally arrived!  Unfortunately the H&M order was mostly a bust though.  I ended up keeping this super cozy faux-fur bomber cardigan which I'll likely wear on the blog next week, this pink cashmere toque and these cushion coversThis top was too cropped in the size I ordered, perhaps if I sized up it would fit better?  (I ordered a 4, btw).  This dress was way too long and I'm not sure if I would like it even if it were shorter?  This headband looked ridiculous, sadly. 

From Old Navy, I had ordered this jumpsuit, these pajamas and two long cardigans to compare.  The jumpsuit didn't fit unfortunately and while the pajamas are too long, I'm keeping them anyways!  The cardigans I ordered were the Long-Line Open Front Sweater and the Super-Long Open Front Sweater.  I ended up keeping the Long-Line cardigan as the length was closer to the length of some of my mini dresses, whereas the Super-Long cardigan was more at the knee length.

Anyways, what is everyone up to this weekend?

We have a friends' holiday potluck tonight and I'm making a Salted Caramel Upside Down Cake for dessert.  It's a 60's theme party, since the friends hosting live in a 60's house that they'll be renovating soon!  I think I'm going to wear my white shift dress and maybe do my hair in a beehive or with a big headband?  I Googled 60's desserts and Pineapple Upside Down Cake was one of them, so I decided to so it with apples instead, since they're more seasonal/festive.  I tested the recipe earlier this week and it was pretty good, so I'm excited to make it again!

Other than that, we have no plans!  Sunday will probably be a lazy couch day which is my favourite kind of Sunday!  Oh, and I have some holiday baking I want to do - the past few years this Dark Chocolate Pistachio Bark and this Almond Toffee have been my go-tos!

Next week is my last week of work before the holidays and then we head up to the Okanagan for 5 days, including Christmas Day!  Hopefully we will have a white Christmas again this year!

I hope you are all having a great weekend, and thank you so much for reading!

Jules in Flats December Outfits (Business Casual Winter Workwear on a Budget)

Jules in Flats December Outfits (Business Casual Winter Workwear on a Budget)



Hi everyone!

This week was sunny but cold, so I was able to take outfit pics in the morning before work again!  And seeing the sun for pretty much a whole week was such a nice change from the rain!

Our postal service was on a rotating strike last month, and even though they've now come to an agreement and are back to work, there is a massive backlog of shipments so most of my Cyber Week shipments haven't even arrived yet! :(

The third size (Petite XS) of this dress did arrive though, and sadly it wasn't the Goldilocks dress!  I compared it with the Petite S (I had already sent the regular XS back) and decided to keep the Petite S instead.  Although the length of the PXS was better (shorter), the waistline was higher and made it look more like an empire-waist dress.  I will probably wear it next week so stay tuned!

Other than that, I haven't really being doing a lot of shopping for myself and instead I've been focused on buying Christmas presents!  This year I have two < $25 White Elephant gifts to buy, a family Secret Santa gift < $50 and gifts for Tony!  He is the hardest to buy for because he doesn't make a list and doesn't tell me what he wants 🤦.

Anyways, here are a few things we've been up to, sorted by category!
