Casual Day / Green Jeans and Black Boots

19 Dec

Today, I’m enjoying the last day of work before a long Christmas holiday! These last few days have been casual around GenJ so I had an excuse to wear these comfortable green jeans to work. Paired with black suede boots and a cozy sweater, these cold days have nothing on this new go to outfit. IMG_6982 IMG_6998 IMG_7043Sweater: Old Navy — Pants: Target (similar) — Boots: Target (similar) — Necklace: Old Navy (similar: here and here)

Workwear: Mint Blouse and Red Sweater

12 Dec

Jumping on the mint trend that has been roaming our closets for years now, I’m presenting this outfit full of color and class. Or at least I hope.

I love how everything worked together and the beige flats provide the perfect classic finishing to the outfit. I didn’t want to add a necklace because the red/mint top combo and the black/brown pants combo seemed interesting enough.

Workwear: Polka Dot Button-up and Yellow Sweater

21 Nov

I love mixing stripes and polka dots, prints and graphics, and plaids and florals (ok the last one might be a stretch for me). In this outfit, these prints go together perfectly for a couple of reasons. Let me explain why:

1) Same color scheme. When mixing prints, try to stay in the same color vicinity. If you’re wearing a bright color like yellow, it might not be favorable to also throw on a loud red or fuchsia. Stick with one vibrant color and then mesh everything with it. Here, yellow and black/grey/white take main stage.

2) Large-scale/small-scale. Try and wear one print that is small than the other one. Two large-scale prints don’t work well. If the polka dots were just as graphically loud as the bold stripes, they would be competing with and not complimenting each other.

Workwear: Green Skirt and Animal Print Scarf

30 Oct

I’m loving the Blazer trend right now. I’ve started to pair the three that I have with just about everything, pants, dresses, and skirts. This skirt is a newer one in my closet and I just love it. It adds the right amount of color without going too over the edge. I love how all these different colors, brown, green, grey, black and animal print, go together in one outfit! I think that’s my favorite type of look. One where I can put on many different colors but it still looks chic, classy and pulled together for the office.

Workwear: Plum dress and Tan Blazer

23 Oct

This tan wool blazer is a new addition to my wardrobe. It got it for a steal at Target a month ago and have worn it at least 10 times already. It’s great for work and dressing up jeans on the weekend.

Workwear: Blue Print Blouse and Nude Flats

10 Oct

Getting back into blogging means putting together new outfits and thinking up creative ways to dress at work! I’m glad that it’s fall again. That means that I’ll be wearing work outfits more regularly and well, everyone knows that fall clothes are the best and most versatile (can you say, LAYERING!)

I found this blouse on Old Navy online. It was on sale and with the 40% off coupon (emailed to me every week) this one item ended up being $4. With the beige/khaki pants and flats combo, my leg line extends down to the ground. Remember talking about how keeping colors the same makes you appear taller?  (in this post and this one).

I think I’m beginning to like this kind of look: untucked blouse with skinny pants and flats. It feels easy yet pulled together and something I can put on for work but doesn’t take tons of effort in the morning.

Workwear: Animal Print Belt and Blue Chino

21 May

I love how these boat shoes match my skirt and my skirt goes with the belt and the belt with the top and necklace. The outfit works as you ascend. I think that’s ok, right? 🙂

Workwear: Striped Skirt and Blue Blouse

20 May

Good Monday morning! I’m finding more ways to style this a-line striped skirt. Here it is with a silky blue blouse from H&M. It was easy, comfortable, and perfect for a gorgeous Spring day!

If you didn’t see my Healthify update on Friday, I want to let you know that I’m cutting back my posts over the next 2 months because of the high intensity and craziness of work (summer camps across the country). I’ll definitely still be around through June and July but a little less often. However, when the end of July rolls around I’ll be coming back full force. Please stick with me! Thanks 🙂

Workwear: Black and White Striped Maxi

17 May

A couple of weeks ago I purchased my first maxi dress! I’ve always thought they would be a cute, comfortable, and a classy addition to my wardrobe. So excited to have this black and white one in my closet now. It’s so versatile and it will be fun to style many different ways. Do you have a maxi? How do you wear it?

Workwear: Floral Sleeveless and Plum Skirt

16 May

Feeling colorful? I’m not usually, but this outfit reminded me of my mom and how vibrantly she dresses. From the bright floral top to the plum skirt and blue belt, this outfit screams “I’m put together and I know it!” 🙂
