Good evening, friends! It’s been VERY HOT here in Maryland but I’m trying my best to keep cool!
I’ve been wanting to do a “series” on the blog and I think my 1st one will be geared towards my workplace attire. I’m going to call it, “Wear to Work“. I’ll be featuring my weekly looks (Mon. Weds. Fri.), as well as options to, “shop my look”. Workplace looks, via-Polyvore, will also be featured. I plan to break down why I think certain pieces are necessary for every woman’s work wardrobe. I hope you enjoy this mini-series—can’t wait to show you more!
Today’s look is a perfect outfit for work. I work in an office-like environment and while I have my own office, I am constantly walking back and forth to certain rooms/offices every day. Because of that, a comfortable (and stylish) shoe is absolutely necessary. If you can rock a comfy pair of pumps, go for it—it’s all in what is comfortable for YOU! The Tory Burch flats fit the comfort description to a tee for little ol’ me! Also, gravitate towards nude when looking for work shoes. Nude shoes go with EVERYTHING! I’ve found that having these flats saves time for me in the morning. I don’t have to plan my outfit around a pair of shoes anymore—I just go with nude! 🙂
My top is colorful, trendy (because of the gold hardware/buttons) and a bit playful, but still work-appropriate. It’s also lightweight and wearable for every season. The black slacks are a staple piece for every woman’s work wardrobe. My ankle pants are perfect for the season and will never go out of style!

The purse I’m carrying may look small, but it’s deep. It holds my iPhone, iPad, wallet, cosmetic bag, as well as my notebook. I think it’s very important to carry a larger bag to work. Nothing is worse than having your “work papers” all crinkled up in your hand. It’s unprofessional and messy. Save yourself and invest in a tote or a large bag to carry your “work stuff”. There are so many cute work bags out there so, there is no excuse. 😉
Enjoy the rest of the pics and be sure to check back Friday! Part II of, Wear to Work continues with how to wear/style dresses in the workplace. Until then, be blessed and take care!
