hi ho, it’s off to work i go since the calendar clearly states it’s monday once again. black and white is always a office appropriate, but let’s bend the conservative rules a bit and play with pattern. a houndstooth jacket pairs nicely with a striped tissue turtleneck. i’m not certain if the photos pick up the jacquard pattern of the black skirt, but it’s there. and what about these snazzy black and white pumps? they’re from the adam lippes collection from target! it’s time to grab my cup of joe and get my motor revved for the week. happy monday!
it’s back to basics for my nine-to-five ootd. pencil skirt, blazer, and a button down are the perfect pieces for a busy day at the office. but the color scheme is anything but boring, and that’s how i like to spice up these classic separates from time-to-time. the nude colored wedge shoes keep the outfit toned down, and happen to be one of the most comfortable pair of shoes i own. just for fun i threw in a metallic belt to cinch my waist. i know some of us are hesitant about accentuating our middle section when we reach a certain age, but if curvy girls do it with style and sass, why can’t we? so go ahead and experiment. get out of your comfort zone. remember, we don’t always have to play it safe when it comes to fashion.
