Spring Outfit Inspo: Office Edition

Atlanta Blogger, Personal Stylist, work wear inspiration 

I feel like such a hypocrite trying to tell you how to look amazing in the office, when in real life I've allowed my office wear to fall off.  I mean there was a time back in the day where I'd go to work dressed like there was some sort of "best dressed" contest and the prize was either extra time off or a raise.  Now-a-days it's jeans and T's, although I do make it a point to have on a really cute pair of flats (because I don't even wear heels to work anymore).  But for those of you looking to step up your workwear attire, consider today's look.  

Dressing for the office can be a daunting task, especially if you don't like your job, your closet options are depressing or you just have no clue how to marry both style and comfort.  Girl (or guy) I feel you.  How many times have you stood in front of your closet just staring, willing it to produce an outfit worthy of a few "girl you cute" or OMG, I love what you have on" comments?  We all want to look good, it's just the question of HOW?  

Well let me share a few tips on how you can change that.  Tip 1. Try organizing your closet (and drawers).  This will allow you to see what you really have.  You might even come up on a piece or two that you forgot you had.  Tip 2.  Adding accessories such as a statement necklace or bracelets/watches is easy and mostly inexpensive.  Tip 3.  My all time fave go-to... color.  Unless your office has a super strict dress code, color is always in order.  Introducing color into your wardrobe is probably one of the quickest ways to jazz up your office style.  A colored blazer, shirt, pants or tie if you're a guy is a simple way to up your office wear. 

So no matter if your office dress code is casual or business professional these orange pants (or something similar like the ones linked below) will work for you.  Not wanting to be all business, I paired these Asos wide-legged pants with a white-T.  Opted for the long black vest for today's look, however, my office keeps the temperature at Antarctic degrees, which means I'd wear a black polka dot blazer instead of the vest.  For-going the flats, these black and white striped block heels from ShoeDazzle worked out perfectly (sorry guys, this exact shoe is sold out and I couldn't find anything similar).  To complete this look, I wore this dark floral cross-body that turn out to be a great statement piece for this look.

I hope this look inspires you or at lease encourages you to be excited about getting dressed for work.  Let me know in the comments if you'd like me to style something specific.  Happy Tuesday!

Same Fatigue Pants, 7 Different Ways

Melodie Stewart, The Style Klazit, Atlanta Style blogger, Fatigue street style, Mixed prints

A couple years ago, I really wanted a pair of army fatigue pants.  So imagine my surprise when one day while at the thrift store (in the mens section) I find a pair in my size and for only two bucks.  The print on these fatigues give off such a bold statement, I never imagined that I'd have so much fun styling them.  Today is my 7th time wearing them; Well really my 8th.  There was the one time I tried wearing a crop top, but the way my mom-gut is set up....  The look turned into a no-go.  I was kinda bombed about it too, because the outfit was really cute.

It's usually when I'm laying in bed that a look will come to mind.  I wanted to wear the pants again, but I wasn't sure how.  After a few moments of mentally going through my closet, I started piecing together the look in my head.  That's usually how most of my looks come together.  I very rarely try anything on.  If it looks good in my head, it should translate well when I actually wear it.  There have been those few times when the looks are a complete fail.  Every time I think I'm ready to give up my fatigues, I think about another way to style them.

Today's look is me doing the most (insert slight eye roll and head shake).  Instead of just being okay with the white button down shirt and white sneakers and maybe a cute little handbag; I had to go over board by adding the floral print necktie and these cute black and white stripped sandals from ShoeDazzle.  I love mixing prints.  What do you think?  Could you see yourself wearing this outfit?
