I mentioned in my last post that it was time that I step up my work wear game (hence back-to-back work wear posts, I’m serious!). Although I love styling and showing off my casual looks, a majority of my time is spent in the office, and therefore, I definitely want to incorporate more business casual outfits in my posts (as I’m assuming there are quite a few of you who could use some office outfit inspo as well). What I wear to work is my #1 motivator for getting out of bed during the week, so looking good means I’m 99% less likely to act bitter all day about not being born an heiress (which is very important for my client and colleagues!).
Shopping for work wear can be challenging because so many of the assortments out there are super boring or look like they’re meant for someone twice my age. To overcome such obstacles, I try to buy things that can be worn for work or weekend. Banana Republic is honestly my go-to store for this and the brand basically dominates my wardrobe. They always have gorgeous blouses, perfect for the weekday, but that can also be worn with a pair of jeans for some sleek Saturday style. We all know that I’m a sucker for bow-ties and stripes, so this top was an obvious purchase. I discovered this style bottoms a few months ago and bought several colors with work and play in mind. They’re a structured slim jegging and look great paired with pumps or booties. Let’s just say this outfit puts me in a good mood no matter what day it is!
