Since this week is all about fashion and looks I am back with an office appropriate look today. We also already had a colorful style on Monday and a trendy print on Tuesday so since it is hump day today and two more days to go until the weekend I am sharing some style inspo for all my working girls out there.
I always loved to pick out outfits for the office I was working in (now I am in maternity leave and going to stay home for about two years after baby girl arrives, but don´t worry I will definitely keep on blogging) cause it gave me a nice excuse to dress up on a daily basis and look chic during the day.
Plaid is one of my favorite pattern and one that definitely works for every office surrounding whether it is casusal or not. So let´t start out with a plaid pant and work ourselves up. Picking up colors from a pattern you are wearing never hurts so I went with a simple black turtleneck and added the red through a blazer to spice it up a little. Add a matching lipstick and a cute hair accessory and you are good to go.
Do you like to see office inpsired looks ? Where do you all work ?
since Summer doesn´t mean exclusively fun in the sun (most of us probably need to work to be able to spend some money on fun in the sun) I am sharing a work appropriate office look over here on Madame Schischi today. So since some are blessed with great air conditioning at their office, others are absolutely lost in the summer heat. Every degrees over 25° C is already to much for myself and I am so lucky it hasn´t been to hot the last three weeks but anyways you should still dress accordingly to your work space although it is super hot.
This means no mini skirt and crop tops. I promise you won´t sweat less by reducing the length of your clothes. Just wear wider cut pieces. If your skin can breath it won´t be to bad. Although thinner clothing might be better to stand the heat it shouldn´t be seethrough at all. And anohter thing that bothers me a lot everytime I see it is when your bra straps are somewhere your shirt will never be. For example wearing a neckholder top and a regular bra. Please invest in a strapless version. It looks SO MUCH BETTER.
But let´s talk about the outfit per se. Black isn´t neccessarily a summer color but it still looks sleek and put together and that is what we need for the heat. I got this dress back in the winter from Zara but there are many other options out there. Black is also always a great option to combine with pops of leopard which I did to create this look.
In fact you could combine it with every color you like just switch out the belt, shoes and bag and you are good to go. Another thing I like to do is to wear my hair out of my face when it is hot. So I make a bun or a pony tail or if I need a quick and pretty solution it is going to be a beautiful pearl embellished headband.
How are you standing the summer heat on weekdays? And do you still wear black when it gets hotter?
how is it possible another Monday and where has the weekend gone. I really can´t believe it. Although I have a short week and one more day off than usual this week, I dread Monday like nothing else. I am just always so tired and unmotivated when I get up and the cold and dark winter mornings don´t help much either but I am working on that so let´s hop over to some Monday morning office inspiration.
It always depends on what office standards you have so you can wear what you like. I am at a more relaxed office now which makes it pretty easy for me but the dressing rules at the law firm I worked before where pretty strict. So I think this look would work for both places. Maybe just swap the fishnet tights for opaque and you are good to go.
A knit dress in an appropriate lenght and a versatile color can be a great basic piece for your office wardorbe. It can be combined with different types of jackets and boots or even with pumps and no tights. You can wear it from fall to spring and also without a blazer jacket it looks really nice plus it is super comfortable to wear all day.
I combined mine with a plaid blazer jacket – I call this my professor blazer as it has the typical plaid pattern and ellbow patches, always feel so british when wearing it – and a pair of color matching patent ankle pumps. I absolutely love burgungy and wear it a lot throughout the fall and winter as it pairs so nicely with a lot of different colors. That is why I got myself this DKNY handbag a few years ago since I was sure it would match with so many of my pieces of my wardorbe and it really does. I have worn it a lot this season and am not done now.
So I am hoping I could give you some work wear inspiration for this cold and gloomy Monday. We are all in this together so let´s get another cup of coffee and tackle that day.
