Workday Wardrobe Update

I’d recently been feeling like my workday wardrobe was in a bit of a rut. Each morning I would stare blankly feeling uninspired by my clothing options. Have you ever felt this way? I wanted to be spend savvy and not go overboard, so I went on a hunt for a few staple pieces that were versatile, yet offered a spark of inspiration!

Gold Metallic Ballet Flats from JCREW
I’m definitely a flats girl, especially in the workplace. I came across the adorable Gemma Cap-Toe Flat from JCREW and instantly loved them. For me, gold is a neutral that pairs well with almost anything. I typically go for round-toe ballet flats, but was eager to mix-it-up with the semi-pointed toe on this pair. So far, I’ve found myself pairing these flats with pants, skirt and dresses. They are the classic go-to, and with a promotion code, within my budget!

Black Trousers from Banana Republic
Banana Republic often has exceptional deals, so when I saw “40% Off Your Purchase” I immediately decided to take a peek! Black trousers are a workplace staple and sometimes a fresh pair is needed for a wardrobe pick-me-up. I found the Logan Trouser with a slimming silhouette and rich fabric for everyday work-wear. I plan to hem these to wear with flats (hello, newly purchased Gold Metallic Ballet Flats!) for a casual, yet sophisticated style. I definitely recommend signing up at Banana Republic for promotional emails and deals—it’s a great way to know when new products become able and get the best savings!

Tailored Tee from Madewell
There is no strict dress code at my office and although I more often take a formal approach to style, I definitely include a casual look a few times per week. I found the Tailored Tee from Madewell and instantly crushed—the material is thick, the design is flowy yet feminine, and I love that it drapes a bit lower in the back. I chose the Cabernet color and I am so pleased with my choice—it is the perfect fall/winter shade. I plan to pair this top with trousers for a more refined look, and with jeans and flats for a casual style.

Sometimes giving your workday wardrobe a facelift is just what you need to help you get through the workweek! I recommend finding a few key pieces that can easily be integrated into what you already own. And with summer here, be on the lookout for great deals! Happy shopping!
