Business Casual


It feels like everything has been non-stop work lately.

Putting together outfits is fun but when I can’t have a fun pair of shorts or some particularly distressed jeans in my life, I tend to get disheartened pretty quickly. There’s only so much fun I can have with slacks before I am just ready for sweatpants.

Yesterday, though, I woke up and made a decision to make business casual fun. Take the dress code for my workplace and really just go with it. And thus, this outfit was born. It’s not the most innovative or exciting outfit. But for the first time in a while, I felt on top of my game all day. And that is such an important aspect to a successful day for me that it really made the difference in my Monday.

Almost everything in this outfit is from Target. The pants, the bag, and the necklace are all Target finds. The shoes came from Aldo and the top is super old from Kohl’s.

In other news, I’ll be attending the Simply Stylist Fashion & Beauty Conference on Saturday right here in Chicago! Any readers going? Give me a shoutout in the comments! I’d love to see you!

      Thanks so much!
      Don’t you worry, I 100% plan on sharing it. It’s going to be too much fun to NOT share.
