Last week was back to work for me. I missed out getting up any of my actual “back-to-work” outfit concoctions last week due to the One Year Abroad focus. Never fear, I looked pretty stellar!
This week, now that I have a feel for what the general consensus is office-appropriate clothing, and I have five minutes to think, I’ve put together my first back-to-work look for you. It’s pretty bare-bones as far as I’m concerned, but it’s easy enough to throw together if you have a few basics in your wardrobe!
From Head to Toe: Outfit of the Day 3.10.14 – Back to Work!
Never mind that I look like the angriest woman on the face of the earth! I probably just hadn’t had my morning coffee yet — and it was Monday after all!
Three quarter-sleeved, patterned blouse: The Limited
If you look closely, it’s really a mind trick! (No, I’m only kidding, but that’s what it reminds me of…I could never do those anyway, so if you see the hidden magic, let me know!)
Black, peplum pencil skirt: The Limited
I love a good pencil skirt, but add in a bit of flirty peplum and I’m just sold!
I didn’t actually wear those shoes in the office — I have black heels at my desk — but a 2K walk isn’t happening in heels, so I opt for the flats most days. Of course, with all the walking, you go through them like nobody’s business, so, you opt for the über cheap ones (i.e. 6-8 Euro) at Penny’s and call it a day. I won’t tell if you don’t?
So, ignore my crappy iPhone image quality — my technology is more and more dated by the minute and it’s clearly showing! What do you think? Easy enough to pull off in the office and still look like a professional? I assure you, I only had about 30 seconds to make the game time decision on what to wear as I was running incredibly late, despite getting out of bed earlier than the alarm. #StoryOfMyLife!
I’m sure quite a few future OOTD posts will be office looks — that is why I started this little blog in the first place. So stay tuned!
XOXO – K
