Un-Boring Office Attire

Who says you can't have fun with your workday style? It could be that the phrase "office appropriate" usually corresponds with neutral colors and Plain Jane silhouettes. But after spending several years in a wide range of office environments: fashion-forward, corporate, ultra-casual, and even techy, I've learned that this idea couldn't be farther from the truth. While I certainly do alter my look to fit the office vibe (I wear a lot fewer heels working in tech than I did in my fashion company days) I've discovered that professional wear and fresh, exciting outfits are not mutually exclusive.

I don't mean that you should waltz into work wearing a cropped tee or tube top, and there are definitely a few good rules follow, like avoiding shorter hemlines and opting for tailored pieces. I personally love finding traditionally conservative silhouettes that have been reimagined with bold prints and fun pops of color. And no matter what the tone of my office, these styles are always warmly welcomed. For summer, this means going for jumpsuits and rompers over basic trousers. And in winter, it's layering with great sweaters and of-the-moment jackets.

This romper from Banana Republic Factory is on sale now and is just bright enough to turn a few heads.  I love it paired with beaded hoops or tassel earrings to give it an extra kick. Its just the thing you need to keep your office outfit rotation interesting. And if this one isn't quite your style, I've got you covered with more of my favorite one-piece styles below.

As you’ve probably noticed, I’ve been (over)wearing dresses lately. The truth is, they’re just so flattering and easy to style that I can’t seem to go for any other piece at the moment. Breezy and ultra-femme, dresses are truly one of the reasons why I love summer. 

So if you’re like me, and you can’t get enough, here’s a pretty little white dress to add to your collection. With puffy sleeves and lace details, this one is a great blend of trendy and traditional. What are some of your favorite summer frocks?

It's official: matching sets are all the rage right now. I remember one matching striped pencil skirt and tank top combo that I had a couple of years ago and LOVED, but it was the only one I can recall wearing. Now, the options are endless, and I am so happy about it! From coordinating blazers and pants, to two-piece denim sets and pretty summer prints, there is a combo to suit each and every style. And the thing I love most about it? The ease of styling them! Once you've found the perfect two piece, all you need to do is pick out a pair of shoes and accessorize. 

I've always leaned more towards more feminine styles and silhouettes, that's why I grabbed this midi-skirt and cropped tank combo from Chicwish. It's effortlessly chic and it is such a fun alternative to one of my traditional summer midi dresses. I wore it last weekend to get brunch and cupcakes with some friends at Magnolia Bakery (aka cupcake heaven) but it would also be a great option for a baby or bridal shower.
