work week.

express blouse; f21 skirt, coach tote; js suede pumps

It’s easy to fall into a habit of wearing monotone outfits at the office, but I love the challenge of incorporating my personal style into the work week.  Ever since I misplaced my favorite charcoal gray skirt (seriously, I feel like a lost a little part of me with it missing), I’ve had to conjure up some new work appropriate looks.

By now, you know that my personal dress code mandates the use of color and there’s no better way to satisfy that requirement than with a few jewel-toned pieces contrasted against a crisp, white button-up.  The tote is one of my favorite bags because it incorporates even more colors while being sturdy enough to carry all of my school/work/personal necessities (which usually include a pair of flip flops for more serious walking distances).

I definitely encourage you to incorporate your personal style into your work wear, but if you’re starting a new job, get a feel for the office before you don anything flashy.  When I first started my current job, I suited completely up, slacks (bleh) and all.  After a while, I got to know my co-workers and they got to know me — professionally and then stylistically.

  1. Hi Jenny:

    I really am in love with your blog! I love your outfit for work, you have such great fashion sense. Those blue flats are adorable and just enough color to go with your purple skirt and white button down top. The colorful Coach bag is very chic.

    Love,

    Mc Huggs :)
