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!

Confession – I wore a huge, bright bow on top (literally, the tip top) of my head until I was way too old to wear them….but I still rocked one everyday with my uniform (or so I thought). And I’m not talking about a typical bow – we’re talking like almost the size of my head. And then it was ribbons tied…


Navy Lengths

When I first saw this skirt at Urban Outfitters, I had my doubts. It looked very….ragged for lack of better words. And I knew that I would have to spiffy it up with something interesting in order to make it work. But I must say, I’ve enjoyed playing around with it and have actually put together several outfits with it (yay for versatility!). And fortunately the price point is pretty…
