Out of the Office

I’ve been “out of the office” so to speak, distracted by various developments (including a new internship!), but it’s good to be back.  The kitchen cupboard is where I keep items I’ve lost interest in or don’t wear very often.  I found this Club Monaco skirt out of that pile and set up a challenge to create a business versus casual look. The skirt is a sleek, but overtly professional piece only needing a crisp white shirt and structured bag to give corporate appeal.  With the casual outfit, I perpetrated a realistic situation using the items actually worn to “the office”.  The result was a change of pumps to sandals and an unbuttoned shirt worn in cardigan fashion.  I see myself more in the laid back look.  What about you?

    I prefer the first look, the skirt looks more in the first and for me is the absolute protagonist star

    I love how you’ve managed to take such a buttoned-up office staple and turn it into something a little more street-ready. It looks fab!

    Love it, xs. I love the idea of using the button up as a cardigan and may be using this for a post-work outfit in the future!

    i adore that skirt – – – although the pairing with the sandals is interesting, i think the skirt is a bit too professional for such casual footwear. definitely something to play around with, though!

    Sexy librarian or secretary.

    It’s good that the materials and colors are soft and calm with bold design and silhouette.

    Same clothes, but differ on how you wear it — the last photo is my favorite!

    I’ve been wondering, do you edit your photos yourself? :]
