Look what I found on my camera! This is from late January, and I totally forgot about this outfit (having a huge memory card in your camera can be a curse sometimes). I think this is all of the pre-February ones, but I need to step up my game to get some of these other ones out before more start backing up.
Anyhoo, on to the actual look. I really liked this one! Totally a fun office appropriate style. I think this was just a normal day in the office, but this could also have worked if I had a meeting (although not one with the top dogs--that's suit duty). And these shoes are so comfortable...I should probably replace them soon because the leather (or faux leather? not sure) is totally cracking. But they lasted a looooong time.
On another note, my hair is long enough to curl! A huge difference from my ear-grazing cut a few months ago. I love how fast my hair grows.
A tailored blouse in a solid color is a must for business casual wear--this top goes well with skirts, pants, or even jeans on the weekend. The sleeves are long enough to be modest but are fine for summer, too.
Not much. I really liked this one.
What's your threshold for suiting up? Presenting? Interviewing? Never? Always?
