Although most of my wardrobe consists of basic staples in shades of black, I still try to create outfits which show my style and personality. Since I work in an office all day where impromptu meetings are often called, I strive to dress comfortable yet still polished to an extent. Luckily my office dress code is very business casual which gives me a lot of flexibility. Here is an example of what I wore to work a couple of weeks ago when the weather was a little cooler.
As I mentioned in a previous post, a pair of black comfortable over the knee boots are a wardrobe staple for every girl. My favorite ones are the Stuart Weitzman 5050’s – They are extremely comfortable, and true to size. I can walk miles in these and it feels like I’m walking on butter. These boots are offered in several colors and finishes, but the black napa leather is my favorite option. The leggings I’m wearing are super soft, stretchy, and opaque which is must- especially when your top isn’t long enough to cover your entire butt. These leggings by Hue have a wide waistband which offers comfort with style and stays in place all day; no pulling and tugging required! The basic black tee is light weight and hasn’t faded after going through at least twenty wash cycles. Its by a brand called Three Dots which can be found in most department stores and Amazon. It is great on its own or as base shirt for layering and it is available in over thirty colors! I own a few other colors besides the black one I’m wearing here, and they have all kept their original color and shape after multiple washes. Lastly, this Armani Exchange jacket is one of my favorites. Its a mix of faux leather and a jersey knit which makes it very comfortable and easy to move around in. I bought mine at the Armani store in Pasadena, Ca.
Notice the small pop of pink? Pink hello kitty crystal earrings, pink nail polish, and the pink gloss help me show my girly side. I have had these earrings for over two years now and they have yet to loose their shine. At just under $20 bucks, they are quite a steal. I tend to keep my makeup fairly simple for work; neutral eye shadows, a quick swipe of pink blush, and some pink lipgloss complete the look.
Here is what I’m wearing if you wanted to get a similar look:
- Top: Three Dots Women’s Short Sleeve Mid-V Neck Tee
- Jacket: Armani Exchange Mixed Media Jacket
- Leggings: Hue Women’s Ultra Leggings with wide waistband
- Over the knee boots: Stuart Weitzman Women’s 5050 Over-the-knee boot
- Earrings: Pink crystal hello kitty earrings
- Nail polish: Loreal Paris Colour Riche Nail Enamel, Pink Me Up
- Lipgloss: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Pink Pop
P.S – This particular Armani Exchange jacket is sold out currently, so I found a few similar “mixed media” options.
