I’ve been looking to add work wear pieces to my closet and thought it would be fun to share what I’m planning on purchasing as well as a few things I’ve been eyeing. I find styling work wear is a bit more complex because there are certain “rules” to follow in terms of what I can and can’t wear (no jeans, short skirts, shorts, tees, etc. etc.). And then there’s the prerogative the director at my first job gave me: “Terra, don’t dress for the position you have now. Dress for the position that you want.” Styling a look that’s work-appropriate and 100% #bossbabe but still cohesive, chic, and reflects my personal style takes just a little more thought!
If you’ve followed me, you know I’m obsessed with Topshop: I turn to this brand for beautiful, good quality, on trend casual pieces. Yesterday I was clicking through their “work wear” section and was surprised how many items they had that are totally my style and totally work wear appropriate. Here are my picks:
Many of these pieces can also be dressed down for a casual look (how cute would that ruffle jacket be with a pair of distressed jeans- or that polka dot top with a denim skirt and flats?!). Each business environment is a little different when it comes to dress code, but I feel these pieces would work in just about any office situation.
On that note, is it Friday yet? 😉 Two days left! Our little family is headed to our first baseball game of the season Friday evening to see the Knights play and I couldn’t be more excited. My wonderful friend Tania hooked us up with tickets and some of the best Charlotte BBQ, and my mouth is already watering at the thought!
I hope you have a wonderful rest of your week, and thank you so much for reading!
