Looking cute is a must, but dressing appropriately is paramount! Since Monday to Friday mornings usually consist of attempting to look adorable while pulling something from your closet with your eyes still half shut, anything to calm us down and reclaim some time in the morning is certainly welcome! I find that having an organized work wardrobe is just the ticket! You want to make sure that your pieces are interesting and reflect your personality, but versatile and can be mix-and-matched at the same time.
1. Invest in versatile dresses
Dresses that can go from season to season with the simple addition of a cardigan are a great investment since you’ll get the most use out of them. Pretty much as long as the fabric isn’t too thin and summery you’re good to go!
I’ve been loving leather details paired with mixed prints/textures, and now that winter is here it means sweater are in the mix too! What I love about this sweater is the cool puffy shoulders, the fit, and of course how cozy it is! It definitely serves double duty too because I can wear it to work paired with a pencil skirt or dress pants, and on the weekend paired with jeans/colourful skinnys and boots for a more casual look!
I’ve noticed that I’ve been posting a lot of work outfits, mainly because that’s 5 days out of the week for me. But I promise to post some fun weekend and evening wear too! So stay tuned!
This is what I’m wearing to work today. I’m obsessed with these black booties! they go with everything and you can wear them for work or going out. This skirt is super simple but a great colour for fall!
Ah it’s this white skirt again! Told ya it’s versatile! From summer crop top fun to fall work wear this skirt can be paired with pretty much anything. And yes, I totally am wearing two florals – mind you one’s a finer print, and the other is more sparse.
The sweater I’m wearing is from LOFT and I love the detailing along the front and shoulders. It makes it a little more unique than a regular vneck.
Although I’m wearing many different colours they are all within the same colour pallet, thus making it easier to create a cohesive look!
Gotta love mixing prints, fun colours, and textures!
Sometimes I’ll think about my outfits ahead of time…or at least when I’m in the shower in the morning! Not today! I didn’t get enough sleep and I was rushing to work. Getting dressed shouldn’t be hard, and it shouldn’t take forever if you have some basic guidelines to work with.
So here’s what I went with this morning: I picked classic pieces that I knew would work and I would feel comfortable with. I wore my black Le Chateau capris, and a navy cap-sleeve FCUK top. Sounds boring, no? I spiced it up with a coral and gold necklace, (which I actually found in a thrift store a few years ago) and finished the outfit off with Michael Kors flats with gold buckles – which tied the look together. And that’s it. Simple as that! Hopefully this can serve as inspiration to use in your own closet!
