Fashion Friday: Black and white

Shirt: thrifted (and really old) | Pants: Celebrity Pink via Macy's | Boots: Pink & Pepper

I will be the first to admit that this is a terrible picture, but I have to tell you that if you don't have a pair of black skinny jeans, you are missing out! I got these jeans on a screaming deal at Macy's after Christmas ($12!) and absolutely love them. They make my legs look tiny, they look nice enough that I could pair them with heels and go to a party, and they're SO comfortable.

Also, black skinny jeans allowed me to finally put an outfit together with black and brown that actually works. Now if I could just find a chambray shirt for cheap that actually fits well, I can pull off a look I pinned on Pinterest ages ago.

You've probably noticed that almost all of my jeans are the Celebrity Pink brand. I just think they are fabulous, and they come in so many different colors. They're also really flattering on everyone, and they're cheap. All of mine have been under $30, and I wear them constantly and they're still in great shape. I highly recommend them -- and nobody is paying me to say this (although wouldn't that be lovely?).

I never do this, but I want to brag for just a second: My company, CHG Healthcare Services, was named No. 3 on Fortune magazine's "100 Best Companies to Work For" list on Wednesday!

As I am part of the communication team that writes and edits the HUGE essay that is required for the award application, it's been a major win for me. But it's also an honor to know that I work at such a great place with people who have always shown me respect and kindness. The CEO knows my name and thanked me for my hard work on the essay, and my team members are amazing and some of the best friends I've ever had. I was incredibly blessed when I took a job there nearly two years ago -- and I thank God for it nearly every night and always remember how much I have to be grateful for.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend, whatever you do!
