I go to work everyday, and honestly my work look is pretty basic. However,
it can work for everyone, yet still be spun with individual flair. That being said, I don’t necessarily have a dress code for work, so I just go with looking as presentable as possible. I usually choose my work outfit as soon as I come home the evening before. It’s a process, starting with the top, then the lowers, then the accessories. Yes, I make time for accessories as well! So check out my basic, go-to work look below!
- Blouse/Shirt: The top is typically a button down shirt or some sort of nice blouse. In my Mon-Fri work week I have a rule where I try not to repeat a color. So if I wear a white top on Monday, I’ll avoid wearing white for the rest of the week, for the sake of variety-and it just gets really boring…who wants that?
- Lowers: Next are my lowers, which 99% of the time are always jeggings. Sometimes the low-rise, sometimes high-waisted, depending on my mood. I have so many jeans it’s not even funny-in all types of denim washes and colors. So therefore I’ll grab a pair of jeans to complement whatever top I’m planning to wear.
- Accessories: This is where I like to have a little fun. Before I started with my evening routine, I’d just grab whatever accessories were out in front of me and make those work. Now, I am able to take time and decide what works best with what. I always start with a watch to make sure it matches, whether it is gold, silver, or color. Then I move on to earrings-2 in each ear, ensuring it works with the watch and the rest out of the outfit. And finally, if I feel like I’ll go for an additional something, which is either a ring or a bracelet for my right hand. My left hand has my watch and wedding ring, so I always try to add a little something to the right hand. Of course everything is matching and placed on my trinket tray to be used the following day.
- Makeup: Even my makeup is super simple. I usually go for tinted moisturizer, then winged eye liner (small, long, thick, thin-all depends on my mood), and a lip gloss or lipstick. Thats it!
So there you have it. My basic go-to work look. Within this, there are so many ways to mix things up with the colors and the accessories and still look different everyday. That’s the beauty of it!
Thats all for now. Until next time 🙂
