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.

look 4: striped sweater / skinny career pants / dress wedges.

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

[all pieces $40 or less].

happy wednesday.

I’m still smiling about my latest visit …

top: LC Lauren Conrad Floral Chiffon Blouse {similar}.

bottom: LC Lauren Conrad Color Pencil Jeans.

shoes: Candies Platform High Heels {similar}. I spotted these heels in the clearance area for $11.99. [I still cannot believe the amount I paid for them!!]

it gets better… I had a $25 gift card, $10 in “kohl’s cash,” and they gave me a 15% off scratch ticket. my grand total for my outfit: $13.65.

christmas clearly came early this year!! :)

& for when the temperatures dropped .. throw on a blue blazer.


today will go down in history for the 1st outfit post on ‘little lessons in a BIG city’.

[thank you [J] for the beautiful pictures. you’re a trooper].

woooooo hoooooo.

happy tuesday ♥
