Dressing appropriately for the office is something, I have to admit, I’m not the best at. And it’s not for a lack of being able to put together an outfit. But rather, not having said outfit in the first place. You see, I never buy “office appropriate” clothes because I don’t like them. I think they’re boring. There, I said it. And aside from one pair of trousers, one silk button down, and a polka dot day dress I’m already running out of things that would be considered office professional. I’ve only bought one suit in my life and it is a tuxedo jacket made out of a silver hammered silk with matching track pants. Unless I get a job in Vegas, this isn’t going to be seen by my coworkers.
Luckily, my office has a very relaxed dress code, where it’s okay if I choose to wear jeans and a flannel (my uniform). But sometimes, I get inspired to go the extra mile. I’m an adult now, damnit I think to myself and I try to wear something remotely in the vicinity of what my friends in finance might wear to the office. I can only assume that they make all that money because they look so damn put together. Dress for success is a thing, right?
Of course as you can see above I couldn’t help putting my own spin on it by wearing my patterned Peter Pilotto for Target skirt with my one silk blouse by Michael Kors (which I found at the Wrentham Outlets for a great price, if anyone wants to try their luck there I would recommend it).
What do you guys think? How’s the dress code at your office? How do you put a personal spin on your work wardrobe?
Have a great day!
