Waking up in the mornings and looking into my closet, trying to decide what to wear to work, is often times pretty fun. (Hello, fashion blogger over here!) But there are definitely those days where I’d give anything to just roll into the office in my favorite joggers & a comfy tee. For the days when I don’t want to get super dressed up, but I know I’ve worn my blue jeans one too many times that week, I opt for a midi skirt.


While working at francesca’s, our dress code was pretty laid back. We even had days where we could wear yoga gear to work! Blue jeans were always a staple in our office, which was lovely too!

However, I often felt my best when I would go out of my way to get dressed up a bit more for work. Sure, this skirt & off-the-shoulder combo is pretty casual, and would definitely not work in most office environments, but when working in fashion, a look such as this one fits in just fine!


Speaking of francesca’s, this pretty blue & white skirt is actually from there! I may have gone on to new and exciting career adventures (which I will be sharing more about on the blog VERY soon!) but I still do love me some fran fashions.

Especially when they come in blue & white … and are less than $50!



I dressed up this skirt with caramel colored accessories: a sleek monogrammed clutch and Swedish clogs.

Mixing and matching my favorite pieces of jewelry is one of the most fun parts when it comes to styling outfits.  Silver and marble earrings, a silver cuff & an antique silver bangle completed this one.

In my new role at Cheeky Vintage, (eek I’m still SO excited that I’m now part of the Cheeky team!) I’ll be getting even more dressed up for the day than I did at fran. With a closet filled with dresses, skirts and all sorts of fancy frocks, I think I’ll be just fine. 🙂 I feel so fortunate to have found myself in a career path that surrounds me with fashion all day & every day.  Because when you love what you do, it doesn’t feel so much like “working!” 😉

What do you like to wear to work? Does your office have a super strict dress code or is it laid back “anything goes?”

As always, thanks for stopping by the blog! Have a happy “hump day!”
