Styling work wear doesn’t have to be something you dread. While it’s definitely not as fun as throwing on a light summer dress, I try to have a positive attitude about what I wear to the office. I always try to strike a balance of what’s professional, comfortable and allows me to let a tad of personality shine through.
I stopped in Banana Republic on my way home from work recently and felt like I hit the jackpot. (Side note: Yes, my route home is often walking down Magnificent Mile. All the temptations!) Pretty much everything was 40% off at Banana Republic and so many cute finds.
I styled this blouse with the white skirt for work and happy hour drinks with another new Chicago blogger, Caitlin from Kinzie and Lake. She’s so adorable. We probably could have kept talking for hours but had to snap some photos before the sun went down.
I really loved how this stripped bow blouse looked with the white lace pencil skirt. It has such a summery feel to it. I threw on a white sweater (not pictured) in the office since I’m someone who is usually cold.
I also had cognac flats on for work but popped these heeled sandals on afterward. 😉
