business casual.

my daily wardrobe has had to make some minor modifications, as of late. [aka: pajamas are no longer acceptable every day wear]. and as much as I enjoyed the company of my lounge-wear, I’ve traded it in.¬†except on nights + weekends.

every work environment varies, along with it the dress code. but regardless my outfit must speak to me and say ..

I am a confident business professional. I am here to be taken seriously and do my job. I do not want my clothes to be a distraction, unless you’re stopping by my office to tell me “I love your outfit!”.

if you have to ask yourself if it’s appropriate, err on the side of caution. don’t wear it.

[as my momma always said, “save something for the imagination”].

business casual //

look 1: bow blouse / soft pants / blue smoking flats.

look 2: deep purple blouse / pebble ankle pants / studded ballet flats.

look 3: geometric blouse / textured skirt / two-piece dress heels.

one more thing: you don’t have to spend a fortune to look nice + professional.
