Okay, how is it only Thursday…but at the same time, how is it Thursday already?! You know those weeks when you can never quite grasp what day it is, and everything is dragging, but still flying by? Yeah, totally confusing, but perfectly describes my week. Fortunately we’re leaving it all behind soon and heading to the beach to savor the final days of Summer break!
I get a lot of requests to show more office-appropriate looks, and today I’m excited to share some chic Work Wear styles with you! I work mostly from home now, but I have to admit, I miss getting fully dressed and putting on makeup everyday. I’m sure Mr. SP misses it, too! #yogapants
I noticed several of the pieces I fell in love with from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (only 4 days left!) were black and white, so I put together a 3 Ways to wear the graphic color combo to work…and virtually every piece is on sale! #bonus
Obviously you know how I feel about color, but sometimes it’s fun to let black and white do all the talking. Who am I kidding? Of course I have to throw in a pop of color or touch of leopard, too.
This first outfit is made up of amazing staples, and each piece could mix-and-match countless ways for both work and weekends, but together, they create an effortless, easy-to-wear look.
The skirt fits like a glove, with a flattering a-line shape, and is sturdy enough to pair with tights in Winter. The patent heels are dead-ringers for Kate Spade (without the Kate Spade price!), and the block-heel makes them comfy for standing and walking. Two important things when working. 😉
Fit Tip: Both the skirt and shoes are true-to-size.
Dresses are always favorites for busy mornings, since they take all the indecision out of getting dressed. #oneanddone This darling shift has little details that make it both unexpected, and incredibly chic.
This last look might be a tad edgy for some office environments, but makes a great outfit for happy hour! #priorities You could easily tone it down by adding this blazer (on sale!), or pairing the skirt with this top instead.
Um, what’s the story with my pinkie in this last pic?! Don’t worry, no fingers were harmed in the making of this post. 😉 Which look fits your work environment best? Or which look would you prefer to wear to work!? See more 3 Ways posts here, and more Work Wear styles here. Happy almost-Friday, lovebugs!!!
