So excited to start this “Easy Office Looks” series, finally! My hope with these future posts is that it will provide you with ideas of some easy looks you can wear to work. Sometimes one of the hardest things to do in the morning (besides getting out of bed) is picking out an outfit. Since I go to work everyday, I am constantly having issues coming up with cute looks–and I know that I’m not the only one!
I am always looking for inspiration on Instagram and blogs to get those creative juices flowing. Most of the time you don’t even need to go out and buy anything, you just need that spark to make an outfit you see online, come to life! My office is very causal–lucky me, right? Even though it is more laid-back, I do like to look somewhat presentable everyday 😉 Look good, feel good, work good? I don’t know about you, but if I’m in a kick-ass outfit, then it completely puts me into a better mood than if I were to be wearing a boring outfit. Anyone else feel that way?
So after sitting down and thinking about it, I figured out what staple items all women need for their work wardrobe. Some of the “must-haves” are: blouses, cardigans, sweaters, jackets, a few good pairs of jeans, a great blazer, slacks, belts, pumps, flats, booties and boots! Woah, that was a long list, but I’m sure you guys have most of it already! Why is there no dresses or skirts on that list you may ask? For me, it’s kind of hard to draw the line at what length is and is not appropriate, so I try to just avoid that issue all together haha. Normally in the mornings I start by picking out a pair of jeans, whether it’s blue jeans or black, then I figure out what shoes I want to wear for the day. If I want to wear booties, I will most likely wear a blouse. If it’s a Friday and I want to go for a casual look, I’ll throw on some converse and a cozy sweater. Or my personal favorite, a plain tee, cardigan and boots. My go-to for sure.

Hope you will enjoy this series, and that it gives you a little inspo so you don’t have to stress out each morning on something as silly as what to wear! Let me tell you, I have definitely had my fair share of the days where half of my closet is taking over my entire room. Trying to prevent anyone from having to go through that 🙂 I will try to do a few posts a month in this “Easy Office Looks” category that you can now find on the main menu on the top of my website. Just hover over “Style” and you will see it.
