Even though my new office has a casual dress code, I have a closet full of “fancier” clothes, so I doubt I will be wearing jeans more than once a week. However, the more laid back dress code does give me a more wiggle room to be a little trendier I feel.
I decided to post one of the bad pictures I got yesterday of my first day outfit just because I liked it so much. Don’t judge the outfit by the way I look in this picture! The blazer is from H&M, the pants and shoes are from Target!
My second day of work outfit is more traditional work wear, but in a playful way. I played with print and color in this outfit. The overall tones of the outfit are shades of blue – navy and lighter shades. My first twist included pairing the blue-toned outfit with a coral cardigan. One of my fashion pet peeves is being too matchy-matchy. Navy is a neutral, so it can be paired with any color you want. So don’t be afraid to pick an unexpected accent color and add it in with a cardigan, your shoes or a belt. The second twist – putting a louder print on a more traditional shaped skirt. The pieces themselves make the outfit appropriate for a more conservative office environment, but the color combo and the print make it office chic! The cardigan is from Target and the blouse and skirt are from Kohls.
