Business Casual

Tuesday, January 15, 2019 3:30 AM

How is everyone settling in to 2019?
So far, so good for me in keeping my 'non- resolution' goals.

As much as I love clothes, and putting together looks, etc, generally my looks are dressed up in dresses or dressed down in jean, rarely anything in between. 
If you are a long time reader of S&S you know that I have a super laid back office in which I wear jeans almost every day.  
On that rare occasional I have to look professional, or unfortunate situation that I may have to attend a wake or funeral, I have nothing to, nothing. 

Just like an LBD we should all own at least a few pairs of black trousers, amiright?
During the holiday season I purchased a few pairs of these Lieth trousers. You have seen the green pair here, but truth be told, I have already worn this black pair countless times.  The have been perfect for the ballet, Christmas Eve mass and other holiday events. 

What is your go to business casual look? 

xx, Elise

  21. Hey everyone!
    I'm so excited. My ex-boyfriend is back after few months of breakup, I’m extremely happy that will are living together again. My boyfriend of 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant. I have cried myself to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.
    I was really upset and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and I did it then he did a spell for me. 17 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again...
    All thanks to Dr Ahmed if you have any marital, relationship or divorces problem contact Dr Ahmed now and I guarantee you that he will help you.
    Here’s his contact.
