A good fitting black jumpsuit is something I think every career gal should have in their work wardrobe. It is such a versatile and easy-to-wear piece that can we dressed simply (as seen here) or dressed up with more accessories, a fitted blazer and other fashionable items. I am especially fond of this jumpsuit from Ann Taylor because (1) it fits my petite frame nicely and (2) who doesn’t love the ruffled sleeve trend happening right now?! Unfortunately this jumpsuit sold out by the time I shared this look (speed up your shipping please Ann Taylor) but they do have some other cute options including this cute jumpsuit on sale plus an additional 40% off! I have also linked a few other great black jumpsuits from some of my other favorite retailers below.
Let me first start off with our annual bucket sale for my boutique, Morning Lavender! The sale just started this morning and things are already selling out fast! With deals at $10, $20, $30, it’s hard not to miss! This polka dot tulle skirt I wore for the holidays last year is on sale for only $30!
Another one of my favorite online places to shop is ASOS and they are having a 30% OFF SITEWIDE SALE this weekend! I bought this dress earlier this year and I just love the lace detailing and feminine silhouette:
I’ve received many requests on showcasing some more work related outfits on the blog so today I’m sharing this stylish look that’s suitable for the office and versatile for other occasions as well. I use to work as a CPA in a Corporate setting so business casual was my wardrobe most of the week. Now that I’m my own #girlboss/owner of a fabulous boutique, I have the freedom to wear just about anything and retired my business casual wardrobe. I’m often at the office/warehouse so comfy shoes is pretty much my staple these days. Back then, I shopped at Banana Republic quite a bit and after visiting their site recently, I found that they still carry a lot of chic pieces perfect for work. I found the cutest bow button down shirt and darling red scallop skirt from Banana Republic and combined it with an old tweed blazer I had. Both of these pieces can easily be re-worn with more casual looks like jeans with the shirt or a great Fall sweater with the skirt. Although my office wear has changed, it’s fun to revisit business casual looks! I hope you enjoyed today’s post as much as I did!
I love a good steal and this easy to wear white coat from H&M is ON SALE for under $30! I love the relaxed, boxy fit and it looks great with or without the belt. This coat is a great addition to your winter whites without breaking the bank. I don’t have a normal office job, which is awesome most of the time but I do miss dressing for the Corporate world like I use to during my old Accounting days (yes I was an Accountant). I love this fitted sheath dress from Ann Taylor and the size 00P fits me perfectly in the shoulders and length. I threw in some fun accessories to dress up the look and there you have a stylish look for the office with affordable, closet staples that you can wear over and over again.
This Fall, blush and burgundy are colors that are currently trending. Combining these colors together create a pretty feminine look that adds some lightness to usual darker fall tones. I created this ready for the office look with this burgundy pencil skirt from Banana Republic, which I may add is currently ON SALE! I combined it with some old favorites from the closet because lets face it, we can’t always buy new stuff! While it’s fun to stay on trend, remember to shop for classic pieces that you can wear repeatedly.
There is seriously something so feminine and flattering about Ann Taylor dresses. The shape of this dress is especially flattering and I love the mix of camel and black. It’s a great go-to dress for wanting to look polished and sophisticated without breaking the bank. And the best part is that is currently 30% OFF on the WEBSITE!
Here’s a great peplum top that can be worn dressy or casual – dress it up with nice pants or a pencil skirt or a more casual look with jeans. I love the shape of this top and the black & white stripes. Horizontal stripes are not always the most flattering but this top works because of the fit. I got the top in a petite size so the waist part hit at the perfect spot and didn’t make my torso look too long (or my legs too short – gotta get any help I can get :)). I paired it with these great fitting camel pants from Banana Republic for a classic look.
