Work From Home Style + Blog Pause Update

Monday : Dress // Sandals // Necklace

Hey guys! Hope your week is off to a great start, last week was a doozy so I had a lazy weekend. Today’s post is a special one and I have a little announcement below. First, let’s get into what I wore last week, while working from home.

Tuesday: Shirt // Jeans // Sneakers // Necklace

This look is all my staples in one look, my favorite shirt, jeans and kicks.

Wednesday: Sweatshirt // Leggings // Sandals

I got this sweatshirt on sale last year, I’ve been waiting for it to go on sale again to get a couple more.

Thursday: T-Shirt // Pants // Shoes // Necklace

Was pleasantly surprised these pants are still in stock, love the color.

Friday: Tee // Shorts // Sandals // Necklace // Earrings

BLOG UPDATE

I posted my first blog post on May 3rd 2011, after a rough start around 2012 I started posting consistently. A lot have changed in the blogging world since but I held on despite all the changes. Instagram wasn’t really a thing back then. I started this blog as a way to document and build my work wardrobe and overall share all the things I’m loving. I’ve always loved fashion and that is something that will never change.

My life however has changed a lot, I’m in my mid thirties now, I work from home full time and I have more work responsibilities. While I still love a cute outfit, over the years I drastically changed my shopping habits. Now I’m at a point where I’m just re-wearing the same stuff all the time, which is really the point of having a complete wardrobe. That however makes for a very boring blog, I don’t always have new stuff to share and I don’t want my blog to drive my spending habits. So I am slowing down a bit, I didn’t want to just change things without a formal notice.

That means that there won’t be 2 to 4 blog posts weekly. I will continue sharing what I’m wearing, eating or reading on Instagram. I won’t take the blog down because I think it still has a lot of helpful posts. I may use it to share things that need a permanent spot in a long form format. I also really want to have my weekends back, it may not look like it but running a blog is time consuming. Most of all, I want to thank you for sticking with me all these years.

I’m still deciding what to do with my fashion account, I think it’s an easier way to share things I’m loving. So this is another place you can follow along. I will be turning off the comments in a few day, always feel free to send me an email at pinksoleblog@gmail.com for questions or just to say hi. I’ve always loved sharing and that will never change.

Again thank you so much for your support and I’ll still be available on Instagram via @pinksole_rach to share what I’m wearing and loving.

xoxo Rachelle

Four Things

I haven’t done a post in a while sharing random things I’m loving and I’m making an effort to do them more often, specially now that I’m not as active on stories.

La Montaña Candles: My friends gifted me a gift-card for Net-a-Porter and and I needed new candles, I was intrigued by this brand based on the reviews and oh my! They smell amazing even unlit, they are way cheaper Dyptique. I got the following scents and this made my bedroom smell like a spa. I think I found my signature candle brand.

Schitts Creek: I’m so excited the new season dropped on Netflix, I could cry, This show is exactly what I need right now. These characters are all so absurd and so funny, I love this show. Moira never ever fails to crack me up.

Our Place: I gifted myself this pan for my Birthday, yes! Welcome to my mid thirties. Anyway, it’s suppose to be able to replace all your other pans. So far i’m loving it, I’ve had it for 2 to 3 weeks now. I used it to make eggs, steam shu mai, boil spaghetti and make pasta sauce, so I would say, yes it does a lot.

100 Cookies: I pre-ordered this cookbook after getting a galley in ebook form. It is sooooo good, not a fancy cookbook with intricate cakes but it has all sorts of cookies and bars recipes. I’ve made several recipes and they have all been exceptional, every single thing I baked was a hit with everyone.

Hope you enjoy these findings!

Goodies under $50

I want to start doing some of the old posts I used to again. While I’m all for quality over quantity, some items you just don’t need to spend much on them. Specially if they are trendy or you just don’t want to spend much. I always navigate towards classic pieces and I feel like they are both affordable and can stand the test of time.

Hoodie dress: I loved the dress from this post but wanted something more affordable. I ordered this to wear with my birks and sneakers.

Slip dress: I have 4 slip dresses that I love dearly, this affordable one is so pretty in this emerald color, it also comes in other hues.

Bike shorts: I’ve always loved bike shorts but they are really perfect for my roller skating practice session.

Black loader mules: I still love my Gucci mules and wear them a lot, this affordable pair give you the same look for way less.

Jeweled sweater: I ordered this sweater as soon as I saw it, here’s how to style it.

Leopard print sweater: I really want a cozy leo print sweater or sweatshirt, this is a good candidate.

Work From Home Style

casual outfit with cold shoulder stripe tee and denim shorts
Monday: Top // Shorts // Sandals

For some reason, last week I wore denim everyday, I think it’s because I didn’t do much planning. I now love getting dressed everyday but I do it mostly to wear all my clothes. There will always be clothing that are special occasion or for going out, but I really want to most of what I have. Like the t-shirt above, I don’t think I wore it at all last year.

casual outfit with plaid rails shirt, skinny jeans and arizona birkenstock
Tuesday: Shirt // jeans // Sandals

These are my favorite go-to, by the way my shirt is on sale again.

outfit with graphic tee and long denim shorts
Wednesday: T-Shirt // Shorts // Sandals

I have lots of t-shirts I hardly wear, I want to wear them more or convert them to workout tops. One thing I can say is that I never struggle to wear my workout clothes. I get my money worth for every piece of activewear I buy. I’m actually annoyed at how often I have to buy workout sneakers, they don’t even last me 6 months anymore.

outfit with j.crew graphic t-shirt and mini denim shirt
Thursday: T-Shirt // Skirt // Sandals

I am forever tempted by J.Crew graphic tees, this was my last purchase. I have way too many of them.

casual outfit with tie dye hoodie, distressed jeans and gold birkenstock
Friday: Hoodie // Jeans // Sandals

I gave in to the temptation of tie dye early in quarantine and got this hoodie. Honestly, I’m not a tie dye person but gotta wear this since I already paid for it. Also if you are on the fence about these gold birks, get them now! They are the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn, one person messaged me that they got them after seeing them on me. Now this is a trend I’d like to start lol.

Have a great day and thank you for stopping by. Remember you can subscribe here to get my posts directly in your inbox
