It’s Monday! I don’t know if I have ever told you guys but I looooove Mondays. It’s one of my favorite days of the week because it feels like a breath of fresh air. It’s a new week where you can set up new goals and just start fresh again.
Mondays for me usually consist of waking up extra earlier to hit up the flower market in downtown right before I head to our office but not before grabbing my go-to vanilla mocha though! I head straight to my desk where I work on emails, designs, inspiration, blogposts and our shop pretty much all day. Even though our office is super laid-back and we all wear whatever we want, sometimes I want to wear an “office” look without feeling like I work at a corporate office.
We all know how hard it is to work at an office and dress or even feel cute in office wear- it’s usually a nightmare getting dressed for the office. For me, I always try to really stick to basics- in color and in silhouettes. A super nice silky button up is always a lot more nicer than just a regular button up, or wearing slim trousers instead of your regular frumpy looking ones! Looking for pieces that are basic but have a twist to them whether in fabric or fitting, will definitely elevate your “office” look to a more put-together chic look!
I love Everlane’s basic pieces that have such a modern twist- they’re effortless, easy, sexy without trying and so versatile! It’s always so hard for me to find the perfect trouser let alone a slim trouser… I’m really picky! I’m a huge fan of silky button ups, any color, any style.. so their selection is perfect!
Next time you’re wondering what to buy or wear, remember to stick to those basics and more modern silhouettes. Think about colors too- I try to buy neutral tones and try to stay away from bold prints for button ups. Less is definitely more.
Trousers in a slimmer silhouette look more polished and help elongate yours legs! Instead of wearing heels, opt for cute fancy flats!
Personally, I like to unbutton my shirts a little lower. For the office, you obviously can’t but if you’re having drinks after work, go ahead and unbuttoned it a little lower and throw on some heels!
I always like to show off my ankles when I wear any kind of pants or jeans.. so folding the trousers at the bottom adds a little detail and gives off an undone look which I love.
