30 Day J.Crew Challenge: Weekly Whistle Taking Care of Business

IMG_3160

Hello, my fabulouses! This spectacular J.Crew outfit is perfect for taking care of business! Speaking of taking care of business….I think I am going to sing a little tune…I honestly cannot resist.

“You get up every morning from your ‘larm clock’s warning. Take the 8:15 into the city. There’s a whistle up above, and people pushin’, people shovin’, and the girls who try to look pretty….Taking care of business (every day). Taking care of business (every way). I’ve been taking care of business (it’s all mine). Taking care of business and working overtime…” (Taking Care of Business by B.T.O.)
