Outfit for Work: Black and White

It’s been over a month since I’ve shared any work outfits.  I promise, I have been getting dressed.  Mostly I’ve been sticking to blacks and whites/creams.

Rather than going with a basic white top here, this cream sweater added some textured details.

Tip: when wearing a color or shade head to toe, use texture to make the look more visual appealing.

Try It Tuesday: 5 Ways To Wear A Blazer

If the other week was all about tanks and skirts, then this will be the week of dresses.  I tend to lean towards ones with a print when I’m headed to a day full of potential spills and stains.  Luckily, if I did get anything on this bird-print dress, I didn’t notice it at all at picture time.

One thing I did notice?  There’s a Savers 5 minutes from my work now.  This is either a good thing, or a bad thing…but it definitely beats the 40 minute drive time to the now 2nd closest Savers.

One final thought to leave you with…something that was Pinterest inspired (of course, right?!)

Try It Tuesday!  (I was going to abbreviate, but T.I.T. just didn’t seem right for a post title.)

5 Ways To Wear A Blazer:

1.  Like I’ve done here, wear a blazer over your favorite summer dress to help transition it to fall.

2.  Wearing a blazer with printed jeans helps take the look to a more professional and sophisticated level.  Devon Rachel has a great example of that here!

3.  Another way to dress up an outfit would be with a tuxedo-style blazer.  I love this crisp black and white look.

4.  Marche shows how to wear a long striped skirt with a white blazer.  This is an outfit that I can totally see myself wearing!

5.  And if you want to take a basic t-shirt and jeans outfit and kick it up a notch, then get inspired by Kendi.  Her bright pink blazer (thrifted, by the way!) looks great with everyday staples.

Are you a blazer lover?  I’d love to hear how you style yours!

When I Don’t Know What To Wear

This week I’m in the classroom taking a graduate class before the school year begins.  With less time at home to find the “perfect” outfit for the day, or when I don’t know what to wear, I look back at KUF for my favorite outfits…then I tweak them just a little bit.

Last Monday I showed these boyfriend jeans with a Before + Again t-shirt…the look was super causal.  Today I’m wearing nearly the same thing, but with a few other pieces.  This Wallis blazer (c/o) steped up the causal factor for grad class…plus it provided relief from the chilling AC!  My thick vintage chain necklace and pink pumps also helped polish the outfit up.

Time is almost up to enter for a chance to win a Before + Again item!  Be sure to enter (it’s soooo easy!), you don’t want to miss out…their t-shirts are so soft and comfy!  Click here to enter!

It’s been a little tricky getting dressed for work.  I’m ready for spring attire, but the temps aren’t quite there yet.  So before I change from fall/winter clothes to the spring/summer bins, I’ve been trying to mix up what I have.  A wool blazer and lace skirt with a black and gold sleeveless sweater seemed to do the trick.  Only thing missing?  A pair of tights.  (And maybe a spray tan!)
