What To Wear To Work

melodiestewart.com, work wear street style, what to wear to work

Hope your weekend was full of funners and relaxation. For me, losing an hour this weekend has gotten me all out of sorts. I mean what’s the purpose of daylight savings time anyway? Either way guys, Happy Monday!

If I’m being honest, I haven’t “dressed up” for work in a long while. I’m just not motivated to put my best foot forward in the wardrobe department 5 days a week. Basically dressing up for work just isn’t fun any more. At this point being comfortable is my goal (meaning jeans, a decent top and a cute pair of shoes).

Now if for some reason I had a desire to slay my co-workers with a cute office chic look, today’s look would be something I’d wear. A blazer (a closet staple that EVERYONE should have in their wardrobe) is an instant outfit game changer, paired with a solid (or print, if you’re feeling frisky) top is simple and easy to wear. With spring around the corner the weather is slowly starting to warm up and this means you’ll see me wearing more skirts, like this thrifted skirt from Asos. What you won’t see more of is me in super high heels like these old turquoise heels I scored from ShoeDazzle many moons ago. Anywho, maybe one day I’ll get back to dressing up for work (or not)!

Adding Color To Your Winter Wardrobe

This season I decided to add more colorful pieces into my winter wardrobe. Although there’s nothing wrong with the darker hues, color is just more exciting. Adding bold splashes of color is super easy and anybody (female or male) can achieve a stylish look.

The color that I choose for this look, pink, is still one of my least favorite colors, but here I am rocking it with style and grace. What’s funny is my silly reason for not liking the pink. I didn’t like pink growing up because I was a tomboy and wanted nothing to do with anything to feminine and girly. Nowadays it’s not even that big a deal.

Incorporating bright and playful colors into your winter wardrobe can range from pieces like this bubble gum pink blazer and sweater combo in today’s look or something as simple as a handbag, a belt or shoes. You could even add a pop of vivid lip color if you’re feeling frisky. Just to prove to you that I’m here for adding color to my winter wardrobe, check out this neon sweater look or this highlighter yellow hoodie look or my fave, this hot pink blazer look.

What are your thoughts on wearing color in the wintertime?

Wearing One Color Is Anything But Boring!

monochrome street style, atlanta top blogger, neon sweater

Mastering the art of a monochromatic look is really quite simple. I’ll even go as far as saying it’s easier than putting together a mixed print or color-block look. And you can undoubtedly put a one color-coordinated outfit together in no time with pieces you already have in your closet.

But what is a monochrome look? I’m glad you asked - In the fashion world it’s when your outfit consists of either wearing a combination of black and white or separates of one color and/or varying tones of a color (now that’s a mouth full).

When you think about a monochrome look, think all black or different shades of off-white. Even during the winter season don’t shy away from making a statement with bold colors like this mustard top and bottom number or this orange getup. Let’s not forget my all time fave monochrome combo black and white.

The next time you’re standing in front of your closet trying to decide what to wear consider pairing pieces within the same color hue together for a chic and trendy look. Have you tried this trend? If so, what’s your go-to single outfit color to wear?

Monochrome Mom Jeans, My Current Obsession

Monochrome Mom Jeans, Top Atlanta blogger, Atlanta Personal Stylist

One thing about me that most people don’t know is that I kinda have a thing for black and white. This color combo is so chic and super easy to style. The number of ways to style these two colors are endless. When I pair the two hue’s together, I feel regal and modern at the same time.

Noticing that most of my jeans are various shades of denim skinny jeans, I figured it was time to start incorporating other jean styles into my wardrobe. My most recent additions were these oversize distressed jeans and these frayed ankle jeans. Guys how stunning are these contrast leg mom jeans? I’m obsessed (even wearing them 3 times already)!

Wanting to highlight the uniqueness of these monochrome jeans, I decided to style this look with a pair of really cute and trendy kitten heel red booties. To keep the look simple, I opted for a style item that’s been on my to buy list for a while, a black turtleneck (secret, the top is really a bodysuit). And because I want to be considered a cool mom, I added this black leather jacket (that I begged hubs to buy for me). In this look I’m ready for date night out with the Mr, hanging with my home girls or attending a networking mixture.

Metallic Skirt + Cigarbox / Holiday Lookbook - Style 2

Melodie Stewart, The Style Klazit, Atlanta style blogger, Atlanta wardrobe stylist

Your holiday fashion wardrobe isn't complete without the shimmer and glimmer of metallic's.  While this isn't a new trend, almost everybody is getting into it one way or another.  My bling-wear consist of a semi-monochromatic silver sweatshirt and skirt combo.  Layered with a burgundy turtleneck for a splash of color.  This look is perfect for those of us who aren't a fan of party dresses during the cold months.  Picked a pair of floral print crew socks to compliment these dope silver metallic oxfords for a downtown chic look.  How cute is this thrifted cigarbox handbag?

Fuzzy Sweater + Cream Lace Skirt

Melodie Stewart, The Style Klazit, Monochrome street style, Atlanta Stylist, Atlanta Style Blogger

It's officially holiday season.  And with that comes holiday parties.  Believe it or not, I've never attended a holiday party.  So I imagine that if I were to attend an office party, I'd wear something like today's look.  It's fairly simple, yet cute.  I paired this cream lace skirt with a fuzzy front sweater.  I went with a two toned snake print pump; But could definitely have dress it down with a burgundy oxford.  If you're one of those brave chicks who wear sandals year round, a rose gold metallic strappy heel sandal would be awesome as well.  I went light on the accessories just to maintain the simplicity of this look.

The #1 Secret To "Owning It", Even When You Don't Know How!

Let's get into my #ootd.  But first (heads bowed/eyes closed) let's give honor to God from whom I received my kinky tresses from.  And although my hair almost always never comes out the way I envisioned it to be, I love my natural hair journey.  Now we can talk about this colored monochrome

look.  Btw, did you check out last weeks monochrome look -

here

?  The best part about this look is that it's

#thrifted

?  Even better is that it's two separate pieces that I thrifted on separate occasions aannddd the top (Ann Taylor

LOFT

) still had the tags attached.  What I like most about this look is that it can easily transition from office to a meeting or a weeknight dinner date with the hubs.  I owned this look, if I do say so myself.

Speaking of owning it, I almost gave up -

AGAIN

! But each time I try, I can't.  And when I thought about why I can't just throw in the towel; it hit me.  In years past whenever things weren't going as planned I would write in my journal and then read out loud what I wanted out of life.  I spoke so much life into my future that it makes quitting really difficult.  The #1 secrete to owning it, even when you don't know how?  Is opening up your mouth and declaring into your atmosphere what you will.  Words have Power!  Don't speak out of your emotions, emotions can change.  Speak from a place of strength, courage and boldness.  Go ahead, you got this!

The next time you're having a rough day, place your hand over your heart ~ Feel the beat ~ That's called purpose ~ You're alive for a reason ~ Don't Give UP!!! (

'Real Style Is Never Right Or Wrong, 

It's A Matter Of Being Yourself On Purpose.'

Why do we allow society's standards of what looks good to determine how we express ourselves through style?  Just because I'm petite (okay small) doesn't mean that all my clothes have to be tight and/or short.  And just because you may be pleasantly plump doesn't mean you have to dress like Mother Teresa either.  One thing to keep in mind, you should dress for your shape instead of your size. 

Ergo the days where we actually follow "style rules".  Take the style trend monochrome, this trend can be styled by anybody in any number of ways.  Black and white is my all time favorite color combo.  And when mixed together your look can be simple and chic or elaborate and bold.  Today we're bring 3 different variations of this fun trend.
