What I Really Wear to Work (Vol. 2)

Sharing a “real-life” round up of all my recent work looks to inspire you to mix, match, and style the pieces you already have.

This was far and away one of the most popular series on the blog last month so I am super excited to bring you a new edition of “What I Really Wear to Work!” Since I work in an office from 9-5, five days a week, it’s hard to always have new ideas & inspiration for the office. Putting this series together has actually been SO good for giving me fresh eyes for my closet and I hope that it continues to inspire you as well!

PS- These pictures are usually taken as I’m running 5 minutes late and out the door – ha. #RealLife. I work in a business casual office so my looks range from casual to dressed up based on what meetings I have that day. Some of my pieces are new and some have been worn for years so it’s easy to see what has really stood the test of time!

I had a presentation at our Q3 style out and wanted to feel totally confident- consider these pink pants my power suit!

Peplum Top || Blush Pink Riviera Pants || Nude Wedges || Rayne Necklace

These little pugs added such fun to my workweek rotation- and got so many compliments at the office!

Pug Utility Blouse (similar style) || Black Sidewalk Skirt || Strappy Heels (similar)

A Friday look that took me from a few team meetings to happy hour at the Getaway.

Must-Have Black Dress ($30!!) || Denim Jacket || Layered Turquoise Necklace

How cute is my little photobomber?? I promise he is alive and well… just perpetually sleepy!

A denim shirt is by far the most worn piece in my closet! I have to stop myself from wearing it more than once a week!

Chambray Shirt || Pink Ruffle Skirt || Oyster Shell Necklace c/o

A very casual Friday – no meetings and a whole lot of spreadsheet work called for a comfy dress!

Lilly Pulitzer Bell Sleeve Dress (similar) || Sam Edelman Gigi Sandals

A classic shirtdress for a busy day of meetings at the office and even more after.

Floral Shirtdress || Double-Strap Sandals

My favorite maxi dress- maybe ever! And judging by the DMs I’ve gotten it’s y’alls favorite too 🙂 Adding a jacket for the office made it appropriate for casual Friday.

    Love this series so much!
    I wanted that pug top from LOFT so badly. It sold out really fast! I did get the pj bottoms with the same print though. Time to start stalking eBay for it!!
