I’m well aware that you all don’t get too many details of my corporate life Monday through Friday and that’s not intentional. My life as a blogger + side hustler is completely separate from my 9-5 and while I’m passionate about both, I work really hard to not only excel at my day job but to build a career that I’ll continue to love for years to come. Some days are redundant; get in, grab a cup of coffee, sit down at my desk and get to work. Others are all over the place with me running in and out of the office to different events, or setting up an event of my own somewhere around town. Not everyday is glamorous, but I do believe that feeling good is directly correlated to how you feel when you’re dressed.
I work for a large firm, but there’s a family feel and we have a very casual dress code where jeans are allowed daily, but I just can’t go that route. I “dress up” about three times a week depending on what I have going on. My work wardrobe consists of mostly neutrals, black, white, navy and gray and varies between blouses, blazers, slacks, dresses and pencil skirts. Neutrals don’t mean boring. This suede pencil skirt is the perfect example of how a simple piece and a staple piece can coexist. I picked it up at H&M which is easily one of my go-to’s for work clothes. The quality is amazing for the price and all the items I’ve gotten from there have lasted me years.
This ruffled button-up is another example of a simple statement. A crisp white shirt will always be in style and will always go perfectly with a pencil skirt. ASOS has my favorite selection, which is where I got this from. I pretty much only wear closed toed heels to work so these Saks suede pumps are an essential for me. I have them in both navy and black and they’re currently 50% off.
Cute work clothes don’t have to be pricey. Some of my favorite pieces have been found on sale at Banana Republic, J. Crew and Express. I’ve gotten a few requests to share more of my business style, so you all can look forward to that. As for today, I’m off to a clay shoot LOL so there are no high heels in sight. Have a productive day babes!
