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 definitely have a thing for damask and jacquard as you can tell! Blazer by Darling
2. Great skirts
A great skirt does all the work for you. It almost doesn’t matter what top you wear, the skirt is bound to dress it up. A great shape to invest in is the pencil skirt. Other shapes will come and go but a great pencil skirt will never expire. I absolutely love colour and pattern and I wear this skirt by Darling all the time! You do want to make sure you have some neutrals as well though, to pair with your most outrageous patterns.

5. Versatile tops
Having blouses and tops that can go from work to dinner to a casual hang out, will save you a ton of room in your closet and will allow you to spend a bit more money on fewer pieces! It doesn’t have to be fancy or particularly structured, as long as it’s not revealing and can be easily dressed up.
