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!

I Said I'd Never Wear Bell Sleeves. But Then I Did

I don't really consider myself to be trendy.  However, I do keep my eye on what's trending just so that I'm in the loop.  My goal when it comes to style is to be me, a unique and memorable me!

So how did I end up in this bell sleeve lace top from Forever 21?  Well, see what had happened was... I saw it on the hanger and sorta fell for it.  Okay, it wasn't that simple.  I did the whole pick it up and put it back thing.  Then I did the I don't want/need it thing.  Plus the walk away then come back and look at it again thing.  Only to end up getting.  Honestly, I'm glad I bought it.  My top isn't available online (booo), but try your luck in the stores.  In the meantime, I've linked to some pret-ty close seconds.  My faves being this one and this one from Asos and this one from Forever 21

Believe it or not, I'm not all to thrilled with this look.  I think I should have gone with a shorter pair of pants.  If I could do it all over again, I'd wear a pair of cropped pants like these from Asos.  Who knows I just might re-do this look with the shorter pant leg.  Long pants aside, this look will be hanging in the closet waiting on someone to invite me to their holiday party.  

I'm totally diggin the fantabulous 'Stacia' sneaker from ShoeDazzle (not a VIP member, become one and save 75% off your first order - click ShoeDazzle)?  They also come in blue, but the gold is what's happening.  If I decided on another pair of gold sneakers, I'd have gone with these metallic low tops or these old school classic Reebox's in antique gold.  

Did you catch that nothing was thrifted???  Don't worry, I may have cheated on the thrift store with this look, but I'm definitely going back.
