Jules in Flats - September Outfits (Business Casual Workwear on a Budget)

Hi there, happy Sunday!

It is miserable here today - cold, dark rainy.  I think it's supposed to be like this for the rest of the week, too :( . We are planning on going for brunch and then shopping downtown before seeing Ad Astra, Brad Pitt's new movie.

Yesterday I got my hair cut and coloured, we went for tacos, and other than that we were just at home watching TNG!  Tony was putting together some shelves, too - one for the dining room and another bookcase-type shelf unit for the second bedroom.

The mirror that we ordered for the dining room is going back - we didn't love the colour, and the fact that it didn't have a frame.  Why are mirrors so expensive?  I really don't want to have to spend $400 on a mirror!~


Jules in Flats - Floral Jacquard Blouse (Business Casual Workwear on a Budget)

I really love this new top from Banana Republic Factory!  I got it in black, too.  It's sheer, but with a nude bra underneath I had no qualms about wearing it to work.  The elastic at the wrists is a tiny bit tight, but totally manageable.

Jules in Flats - Scalloped Cami + Burgundy Ankle Pants (Business Casual Workwear on a Budget)

I couldn't decide what to wear this day but am happy with what I came up with!  Camel and burgundy is a classic combination and I love being able to wear something summery like a silky cami into the cooler months.

Jules in Flats - Long Sleeve Wrap Dress (Business Casual Workwear on a Budget)

A new dress from Dynamite!  I got quite a few compliments on this dress when I wore it, which is always a nice confidence boost.  I am eyeing the midi length version of this dress too, which comes in a black and red colour way - I just need it to go on sale!  Two things about this dress - 1. It is not lined, 2. There is no clasp or button to keep the wrap top at the bust closed, I have it safety pinned here.

Jules in Flats - Floral Shadow Stripe Dress + Green Cardigan (Business Casual Workwear on a Budget) 
This kind of feels like a throwback outfit - no one is wearing these short coloured cardigans anymore and the fit and flare dress isn't the most popular silhouette at the moment.  But I felt good in it and I think it's a flattering cut for my figure, so I'm happy with it!

Last week I shared some things I was eyeing at Zara and H&M.  My Zara order arrived and here's the breakdown:

Textured Weave Dress
Keeping!  This dress is super similar to the Old Navy one I have so I know I will get lots of wear out of it.

Floral Print Dress
Keeping!  I actually didn't really notice the ruffles on this dress but they are pretty and feminine.  The neckline is a bit low but do-able for me since I'm not busty.

Openwork Knit Skirt
Going back!  I love the colour and the knit pattern, but this skirt was far too long on me.

Ribbed Midi Skirt
Going back!  Like the other midi skirt, it was too long on me.

Here's what I ordered from H&M:

Dress with Tie Belt
Smocked Chiffon Dress
Ribbed Dress
Crêped Dress
Jacquard-weave Skirt
Plaid Skirt
Short Skirt

This order is supposed to arrive tomorrow, so next week I will share my thoughts on everything.

Thank you for visiting!!

  1. $400 on a mirror?! Dang! I wouldn't want to spend that much either! Have you tried a resale shop? You might be able to find a cute one for a lot less! Love your looks this week!
