Jules in Flats: February Work Outfits Week Four (Business Casual Workwear on a Budget)

Jules in Flats: February Work Outfits Week Four (Business Casual Workwear on a Budget)


Hi everyone!

My big shoe order from J.Crew Factory arrived last week and I'm wearing the Zoe D'Orsay Suede Flats in the first outfit and the Edie Leather Loafers in the second.  I still need to spray all them all with protector but am very excited about adding these staples to my shoe closet.  I even bought a new shoe hanging organizer to put them in!  It was actually to replace an organizer that has seen better days, but I did buy two just in case :)

I wore the Zoe's to walk to work and unfortunately they're a bit stiff and gave me a blister, so those will have to be work-only shoes for awhile.  I didn't try with the Edie's, since my heel was still recovering from the Zoe's, but I do think my feet are more swollen in the morning so I may not be wearing any of them to commute until they are broken in ... or not at all, which is fine too!

My American Eagle order also arrived, and I'm keeping the undies, bralette and bodysuit but returning the jumpsuit.  The material was a cotton jersey which was too casual for what I was wanting.

I also placed an order from J.Crew for this top (despite the overwhelming majority on Instagram voting for the green, I got it in Hyacinth), this adorable striped top and these sunnies that I've had my eye on since last season. 

Old Navy's new arrivals for Spring/Summer are killing it (check out my Pinterest board here for what I'm loving)  but I'm torn on if I should order anything since summer is so far away!  I'm also trying to shop at Old Navy less, since so much of what I wear is from there already.  I want to try and keep it diverse on here for you so it's not just Old Navy all the time!  Speaking of Old Navy, did you hear the company is separating from Gap and Banana Republic?  I like being able to order from all three companies online with just one checkout so that's my only concern.  I also heard that Gap isn't doing well and they are going to be closing a bunch of stores in North America, which makes me sad - they are such an iconic brand!

I got my hair done this week, the last outfit with the floral wrap dress and faux fur bomber shows the new 'do - we just cleaned up the ends and refreshed the colour a bit :)

This week on Insta Stories I shared my evening skincare routine, and started a Highlight for my commuting outfits as requested so go check those out if you're interested!

This weekend we are keeping it pretty chill, Tony has to work for a bit today so I'm working on this post while he's gone and then hopefully will get to yoga.  Yesterday we bummed around at home and then cleaned up the apartment before friends came over for pizza & board games.  I crushed it on Sushi Go Party and King of Tokyo but lost when it came to High Society (That game is deceivingly hard and you can't play it the same way every time.  We have played it a lot and I have only ever won twice.)

Next weekend is my birthday and we don't really have any plans yet!  Things are kind of up in the air because my brother and sister in law were thinking of coming down but haven't confirmed, and if they were coming my cousin and her wife were going to come over from the Island too ... and then my bestie and her husband are flying in from Japan that day and said they might stop by!!  So I made a few different dinner reservations with varying group sizes and we'll just see who ends up being in town!  All I really want for my birthday is a pair of AirPods and to go out for a nice dinner!  Oh, and a donut :)  so I'm sure we can make all of those things happen!!


Thank you all so much for reading and I hope you have a great weekend!

  2. I love your style! Do you have a habit of playing around with your shoes under your desk, like slipping them on and off, or dangling one of your flats from your toes with your legs crossed?
