When I do office casual, I follow a simple formula: nice blouse, blazer, jeans, and flats (sometimes heels). I wore this to work on Friday becuase I wanted to be office casual and, even though I can dress down and usually do as I mentioned in my last post about working for a nonprofit, I had to participate in interviewing a candidate for a position in my unit so I didn’t want to dress down too much. I figure the blazer gave me just the right air of professionalism, especially for a nonprofit on a Friday!
This top is from Le Tote. I’ve been using it for a while now and really like it because I get cute tops like this one. At first I struggled with wanting to keep every single piece because I think I was stuck in a Stitch Fix mentality where I had to buy it if I was going to wear it. I don’t feel the pressure to buy like I did in the beginning. I’ll only purchase now if 1) it’s a closet staple and I’ll wear it over and over again or 2) I fall in love. That’s only happened a few times, and this piece was one of them!
How awesome are these cobalt heels from Old Navy? I wasn’t sure I would wear them very often because they’re BRIGHT BLUE but I actually wear them with everything! I love them.
