Bringing you office wear!

I am so excited to finally share this post!  When I decided to start blogging again and go in the direction of fashion, I wanted a strong emphasis in office wear.  I follow many fashion bloggers and I often saw readers and followers requesting outfits to wear to the work place.  While in the brainstorming process of narrowing down my style direction and also my own personal style, I really felt that there was a need for more work wear inspiration.  I started researching business attire and I quickly realized that there really wasn't much out there.  I turned towards my own closet and began pulling pieces and putting outfits together.  From there, I had an epiphany that I could do this!  

I would describe my own style as sophisticated, elegant and feminine.  I love to feel put together and have never minded being slightly overdressed.  Feeling good about what I am wearing brings confidence and I am passionate about helping women achieve that same confidence within themselves.  It's empowering to feel good about yourself and exude confidence!  Putting this outfit on for this shoot felt like a dream but it also felt very much like me, and that's when I knew that I was meant to do this.
One of my favorite looks to put together is one with a pencil skirt.  Elegant, sophisticated and extremely versatile, a pencil skirt is a great staple to have in your wardrobe.  They can be worn year round and paired with many different tops to create several different looks.  For this look, I paired my pencil skirt with a camisole to create the base of my outfit.  You can differentiate a basic outfit by adding in seasonal pieces which is what I did when layering the mustard cardigan.  Layering pieces is not only functional but provides a great pop of color as well!
With an outfit that is made up of very simple basics, it's the detail that sets it apart from just being basic.  Adding in classy and sophisticated accessories can dress up any outfit, especially one that is elegant to begin with.  For this look, I went with classic studs and simple jewelry to accentuate the outfit without taking away from it.  Less is always more, in my opinion, and the same would be true for the detail on the back of this pencil skirt.  The fishtail seam going down the back perfectly adds a sexy yet sophisticated touch without being over the top or considered too much.  Pair it with a pair of sleek pumps and you have a classy and chic outfit!
