Having a full-time summer job keeps you busy and it pretty lucrative while you're at it. But dressing for an office can be creatively stifling for someone whose sequin cape is just begging to be worn. I documented what I wore to work this week, just so I could make the effort to look decent while maintaining that professional lacquer.
Monday: H&M top -$25, American Apparel skirt-$40, Salvatore Ferragamo flats-$6, thrifted croc bag-$3.
The "light ruffle shirt with dark skirt" is always a good formula to fall back on. Also, I carried this bag around the whole week.
Wednesday (Tues. was a holiday): Zara dress-$30, thrifted ruffle top-$6, thrifted tapestry shoes-$3. Here I am following the formula. I was planning on wearing just the dress but figured it was a little too "revealing" for work, so I covered up the cleave with some ruffles. (Holy crap I look tired!)
Thursday: Thrifted button-down-St. Vincent's $3 bag sale, Guess jeans-gift from friend, Urban Outfitters shoes-$35. I think this might be my favourite outfit of the week. Nice, simple and these are the best fitting pants on the planet.
Friday: thrifted H&M blouse-$6, thrifted Ralph Lauren slacks-$7, thrifted leather oxfords-$2. Crap, I forgot it was "casual friday"! Oh well, at least I looked half decent in this crisp kinda outfit.
