Work Wear Wednesday

#WorkWearWednesday Edition 1

Work wear for new jobs

Happy, happy Wednesday friends. I am so so so, super duper pumped for this new series. I have been thinking on this idea for months and finally have had time to pull it together and really create a fun vision. I will be sharing #WorkWearWednesday post twice a month for the entire summer. EEEK! It honestly took me forever to pick a schedule for this series, but with much input from y’all and research, I think twice a month will be the best.

Speaking of work, many of you know that I graduated just a little over a month ago from college. Since then, I have been working a full-time job while trying to juggle blogging, volunteering, conferences and finishing up some research. So I deeply apologize for being MIA and completely off of my posting schedule/routine. Because of that, not only is this series for my readers who have asked/emailed/snapchat me about work items, but also for me to step up my consistency.

For my first post in my #WorkWearWednesday series, I wanted to start with a couple of key pieces. First, is a basic black cardigan. I honestly wear this cardigan more than I would like to admit, however, I have had it for 2 years and can quickly throw it on and/or leave it at the office for a go-to sweater during meetings. Second, a basic white tank. Honestly, I go through basic tanks like it is no one’s business, but basic color tanks (black, white, grey) are a must have for your wardrobe. I tend to buy two when they are on sale, so I can stock up. Solid tanks for good for layering in the fall, to go under sweaters in the winter or wear alone/with a light cardigan or shaw during spring. This one was only $4 at Old Navy! Budget friendly and a key piece of a capsule wardrobe – so win/win. Next, I love these two strap heels. A classic black pair of pumps could easily be a replacement in the outfit and still look amazing. Lastly, is this coral pencil skirt. Bottoms tend to be where when I spend most of my money for work clothes because I like them to be a little fun. I am and have been, a sucker for bright print colors/patterns, so I feel like splurging on bottoms are always a good idea. So here, the cost of this skirt $35, which is pretty average with pencil skirts. I tend to stock up on these when they are on clearance. JCrew Factory is a great place to find pencil skirts on clearance and when they are on sale, can cost $20 or less.This classic skirt is from my girl, Lynn, and you can find her LLR Facebook page here. There are tons of places to get good quality pencil skirts and I tend to where them often not only for work but for church, weddings and a few other places. Pair this look with a functional bag and simple jewelry, and you’ll be good to go!

I hope y’all enjoy this series as much as I will. Let me know in the comments what your go-to classic work pieces! I would love to know 🙂

    This is a great outfit! I love a basic cardigan and pencil skirt – so classic. I am the same way about bottoms. I tend to spend more there, but I find that I get more wear out of them since my tops are always in rotation! I need to invest in some basic tanks for layering!

      Totally same! I am always getting new tops, but I like investing in good bottoms and being able to switch them with as many tops and shoes combinations are possible. Especially because work clothes are so expensive. Thanks for stopping by 🙂

    My boyfriend was just asking me the other day if I’d ever had to wear corporate clothing haha! I’ve never really had traditional jobs, but if I ever did, I’d definitely get my hands on that vibrant skirt! Such a great way to brighten up a work outfit.
