Work attire

Welcome to my “work attire” category where we’ll be talking about all things style as it pertains to the office. If you’ve stumbled upon this page and are looking for OUTFIT ideas, then make your way to The Outfit Guide, as that is the BEST resource for outfit inspiration. If you want to read about office attire or career-related topics, then you’re in the right spot! Here, we’ll be talking about what it means to dress well for the office, how to put work looks together, and how to transition your workwear wardrobe from season to season. Oh, and career-related content on how to be an all-star at work while you’re dressing like one too, of course!

Hot Pink Shift

Kristen Dee Photography Things have been all-over-the-place crazy since getting back from Japan late Saturday night. I pretty much slept all day yesterday…with some intermittent Netflix watching as well. But it’s been a process getting myself back in gear and adjusted! But hey, I think it’s safe to say that 14-hour time different is the real deal and will for sure take it out of you. I hope you all…

Grey Shift Dress

Lindsey Shea Photography This little t-shirt dress has been SUCH a staple for me these last few weeks. Not only is it a super easy throw on, but it’s also comfortable AND easy to dress up OR down. I’ve also worn it with my VANS and Birkenstocks :) You may remember when I wore it on my trip to visit my friend Rebecca in DC?! (Photo below) And I wore…

Sleeveless Tie Neck Dress

First of all, this dress had me at sleeveless and swing style - a great sleeveless swing dress is literally right up my ally. And then the white tie bow at the neck? SOLD! And it's so cute on - I love that it would be dressed up for church but also wouldn't be too fancy or anything for dinner with friends or even with flats to run errands around town.

Coral Sleeveless Dress

I love the simple cut of this coral sleeveless dress and the fact that it's sleeveless, but I think I love the color of it the most. It's such a perfect shade of coral for summer and perfectly matches that new lipstick shade I've been talking about (No. 52)!

Spring

Hint of Mint

Today I’m sporting a sleeveless black tunic outfit with my (obviously!) favorite pair of jeans as of late. And I added a fun pop of color with matching green earrings and suede pointed toe pumps :) I mentioned last Friday that I was excited about pastels and that ‘Mint’ was another fun color to try for spring. Of course, I LOVE these Portia heels in this shade of green and–despite my…

Corporate Catwalk: Vest in Show

Brian Pavlich Photography Even though I don’t work in a corporate environment anymore, I’ll always be a little partial to dressing business casual attire. I don’t know why, but it’s just fun to put together power-lady-legally-blonde-esque outfits from time to time. Something about wearing a pencil skirt or a snazzy blazer makes me feel productive ;) And depending on the circumstances, there is bound to be something/some event you might need…

Oversized, Hunter Green Sweater

Is it obvious that I LOVE oversized sweaters? Honestly, that ALL I feel like wearing....ALL the time. And I love the color of this one and that it's a little longer than most.

Tartan Mini

ANGEL A. M. PHOTOGRAPHY Happy Saturday (and for some people) 3-day-weekend! Lucky you! I’m in Baton Rouge this weekend working on one of our big Spring shipments (our office is in Baton Rouge and I live in Dallas FYI), so it’s nice to be home with my parents (even though I was just here for Christmas….ha!) I love living in Dallas and I actually love working from home while I’m…

Black Wrap Cape

I originally had on ALL black for this outfit (aka a black turtleneck). But then I changed. I just COULDN'T do it. A part of me just felt...dead. (ha!) and so I switched for the off white turtleneck and I felt MUCH better. But even so, this outfit was TOTALLY thrown together last minute...sometimes those turn out to be some of my favorites. ;)

Tweed Skirt

I hope you had a great weekend! I can’t believe it’s already basically the middle of November already. I know people always say this, but seriously where did the year go? I really don’t feel like last New Years wasn’t that long ago. And now the year is almost over? Crazy. I’ve always been a big fan of tweed. Although it can be a little itchy at times, nothing can…

Grey Pencil Skirt: A professional closet staple

It’s not very often that I get to dress up like I’m back at ‘the big 4’ (I used to work at a big CPA firm) and working in corporate america again. But when I do find an excuse to break out the pencil skirts again, I always wear them proudly. Other than the fact that I can’t sit criss-cross-apple-sauce in one (confession: I hate sitting like an adult), the…

Ice Blue Monochromatic Layers

I’ve got a thing for monochromatic looks. Pairing like/similar colors is not only easy, but it’s chic. The trick is doing it right. In my experience, I’ve found that pairing like colors with different textures usually always works. It’s when you try and pair similar colors in similar textures/fabrics where you run into issues – because then it’s almost like you need to have the same EXACT color/material (like a…

Plaid on Plaid

Last week I hosted #GirlsNightOut with one of my favorite brands (1.State) and Belk – I announced the event here. Anyway, it was really fun and there was a GREAT turn out. This jacket I have on (Which is actually 40% OFF at Nordstrom right now!) was a HUGE hit. I wore it to the event and I got SO many compliments ;) In fact, I think they sold out…
