Jules in Flats - What I Wore to Work in January (Business Casual Workwear on a Budget) Week 2

Hi everyone!  Here's a look at what I wore to work last week.

The temperatures were fairly mild (around 10℃) which is why I could get away with bare legs one day!

My H&M and Hudson's Bay orders arrived last week and as you can see the maternity faux-leather leggings from Topshop are a keep!  I have never really been into faux-leather leggings before, I know they are super popular among the blogger/influencer community but I just never really felt they were for me.  I honestly can't remember what changed this year but I think because I am wearing leggings so much more, due to the pandemic as well as pregnancy, and because I am wearing them to work, I wanted a pair that was a little bit different, maybe even dressier than plain cotton?  If you have been following my outfits for awhile you know that pre-pandemic I would never ever have worn leggings to work.  They are not work-appropriate for a business casual environment!  HOWEVER the pandemic (and pregnancy) have changed everything and my work environment is much more casual now.

Now, unfortunately the other items I ordered were returns.  This skirt was maxi-length, this dress was see-through and T thought it looked like a baptismal gown (he's not wrong), and the H&M dresses (1, 2, 3) just didn't fit my pregnant body quite right.  Which is totally fine!  I don't actually need any more dresses I just thought those ones were cute and wanted to try them out.

I also went down a bit of a rabbit hole last week in regards to the Marc Fisher Yale booties and convinced myself I needed to buy a pair.  I think it all started with the faux-leather leggings TBH - I was looking up outfit inspo for how to wear them and there were a number of examples which included these particular ankle boots.  Now I have had my eye on these boots since last winter at least - Crystalin Marie wore them all the time and I trust her recs - but they are expensive and I think the shaft height is too high for me to wear with my Pixie ankle pants.  I think I even went to Nordstrom last winter to try them on!  Anyways, like I said, I convinced myself I needed to buy them and was able to purchase them on Poshmark for $120 and they arrived right away. Funny thing is, once I tried them on with the leggings, I didn't like how it looked!  LOL. I think the whole outfit was just a little too edgy, you know what I mean?  They fit great though and I love the pointed toe and sleek shaft.  I am going to try and wear them next week!

Anyways, I think that's about all I have for you this week.  Thank you so much for visiting!
