Let's Get to Work: Polka Dots & A Pencil Skirt

August 18, 2015

Top: old, similar Skirt: old, similar - on sale!, Heels: similar, Crossbody: Marc Jacobs, Sunnies: Chanel, Rings: Accessorize, Bracelets: Franchesca's Boutique, J.Crew Factory, and borrowed, Watch: old

As some of you may know, I work a corporate 9 to 5 job that doesn't let me to pull off the ripped denim look. While I love trendy casual looks, during the week you will see me wearing an ensemble quite similar to this one. 

I love the elegance and sophistication a pencil skirt brings to an outfit - it's my work staple. While I may go for a classic black pencil skirt, I do have a variety of colors that I like to mix and match with various tops. As I prepare for my favorite season, I have already begun to encorporate my favorite fall colors into my wardrobe. I paired this polka-dot top from J.Crew Factory (Ann Taylor also has a similar one, link is above!) and this old olive H&M skirt. I've had this skirt for years, and it is still a favorite piece of mine! To keep with the classic look I added my ASOS heeled sandals, my Marc Jacobs cross body & my Chanel sunnies! (A memory from my trip to Paris :)) the bracelets are a mix of old & borrowed and the background is Park Avenue in the greatest city in the world! 

What's your go-to work staple? Share below!

  1. My favorite piece, albeit somewhat overdone, is the Portofino shirt from Express since you can dress it up or down. I typically wear it with a pencil skirt or with jeans depending on the occasion. Besides the pencil skirt you mentioned from H&M, what are your other favorite places for pencil skirts?

    Also you should do a post for your favorite everyday work bags at different price points. :] Also, can you do a post on creating a capsule work wardrobe? I always find those super helpful for figuring out creative ways to wear certain items.
