Favorite Work Casual Outfits

Hello Hello!!!  So my work has a policy that whenever the local school kids are not in school we can wear casual clothing.  This year went even farther we got two whole weeks of casual outfits.  I love these days because on the regular I usually live in work clothes or workout clothing. Casual clothes are my favorite outfits, I just feel like I have so much more fun when I get to pick whatever I want from my closet (within reason of needing to be appropriate at work).

So I do live where it gets below freezing and actually it went subzero so I was never more excited to see that I could wear jeans.  Jeans offer so much more protection against cold weather then anything I wear to work, mostly because I wear a lot of skirts and tights.  So here is a quick round up of my casual outfits.  Lots of boots and sweaters (remember it was subzero).

My favorite cardigan paired with my favorite booties.  And the best sweater I owned with these amazing flat over the knee boots.

So yes one day I did skip the sweater and wore this really comfortable long sleeve shirt (probably the softest thing I own).  And then we are back to the sweaters and boots.  This sweater I just got on sale at Loft I am pretty excited about this, I like that the bottom is curved like a shirt bottom.  Then these burgundy booties, I do not have an opinion on them yet.  But so far I really like them

And obviously on the coldest day I wore my biggest sweater to keep me as warm as possible, with my knee high boots.

Wardrobe Basics

Hello Hello!!  So there are a few items of clothing that everyone should have in their closet, you know like a little black dress, a trench coat, a great pair of jeans and an amazing pair of heels.  (Obviously I am talking about a women’s wardrobe).  One item that I think is essential to an office wardrobe is a great button up shirt.  I buy this shirt from express and honestly it is amazing.  It can be worn business formal, business casual and just anywhere you want.

What I love about this shirt that I have not seen in a lot of other button up shirts is what I will call wearability.  So this shirt is not stiff, it allows so much movement and breathability that I cannot say how awesome that is to have at work.  This shirt is made of semi-sheer fabric which allows it to not be stiff and does not show wrinkles.  Which if you work in an office you will know how amazing that is, especially if you are like me and are hot and cold and are putting cardigans on and off all day.

So yes I do own this in 3 colors.  I originally bought it in blue and didn’t think too much about it.  But after wearing it a few times I realized how awesome it is.  Then I got annoyed that I bought it in blue, a less versatile color.  I love blue I do but I cannot wear it with everything.  So I have been watching this shirt for a few months waiting for it to go on sale so I can pick it up in black, then I thought having it in white would be great too.

So over Thanksgiving Express had a sale for 50% off everything so it was like a 2 for 1 deal and I bought in the white and black.  There is currently a sale at Express and it looks like 50% off again.

I wear this shirt all the time, I wear them in the same week and sometimes think I should stop but then I think no one will notice.
