Working Woman Wednesday: Office Staples

From the hundreds of blog and Instagram photos I see every day, it’s rare to truly capture a woman in her day to day looks. I love getting glammed up for social media, but I have a real life too! Between working full time, going to school, and running my YouTube channel, I’m very often barefaced and tired (lol!). I’m excited to begin what I would like to call my Working Woman Wednesday series, because I can show how I still slay while getting things done. To keep the authenticity of this series, all my photos are taken before or after leaving my office during the work week.

Now that fall is here to stay, I get to bring out all my staples for the season. I purchased this coat a few months ago from Pretty Little Thing, and it has immediately become a favorite because of its elegance and timeless style. The coat is a perfect weight for the beginning of fall, and it is large enough to be layered underneath for longer wear into the season. It’s a great pick for the office as well, due to its neutral shade and long length.

You will learn very quickly that I love great quality basic items at an affordable price (I essentially live in Forever21’s basics section). I found this crop turtleneck at Forever21 last spring, and I have it in several colors. It is another great piece for layering, or it can be a standalone top (I bought a size up so it would be longer). I love this piece for its versatility and convenience, as I can wear it dressed up for work or down for a weekend date night.

My faux leather skirt is also from Forever21, but it was a Christmas gift either from 2015 or 2016 (I will link a similar look below). I love this skirt because it’s such a great length for the office, and the color is so perfect for the season.

My brown faux leather boots are from ShoeDazzle. I’ve had them for a few years now, and they are super comfortable! These boots are a staple in any closet for their versatility and affordability. My gold hoop earrings were a gift from my grandmother, but I will link a similar look below. The two items that travel everywhere with me are my JORD wood watch and my Louis Vuitton Neverfull GM. Both are of great quality, are very durable, and can be styled with almost any look.

I hope this series will help my other working women, who may have trouble picking outfits in the morning or finding their workplace style. Though we may be tired and carry a lot on our shoulders, we are fierce. We work hard, play harder, and look good while doing it all.

    I love seeing work looks like this because outside of my blog, I work in an office all day. Dressing professionally yet still adding a bit of personal style is so fun and refreshing.

    You did not come to play, with you badself. I love the outfit. We should be able to look like the badasses we are daily sometimes carrying the world on our shoulders.
