I’ve always had such issues with picking out work outfits. Casual Fridays? How casual can you really be? Or how can you mix it up between pants, skirts, dresses, etc.? Also….I would love to wear heels to work, but it is impossible to get my 10,000 steps per day in heels. My company actually has a sign at the bottom of the 4 floor staircase that says ‘No heels on stairs’….for real? I do get that panic in me when I start going down the stairs in heels and someone is behind me trying to go fast…do I risk twisting my ankle so someone can make it to their meeting on time? Or do I just take it slow and look like the a**hole holding everyone up on the stairs because I want to be fashionable? What’s the hashtag? #firstworldproblems ….. nope #fashionhurts
This girl has definitely taken some hints from Pinterest in the ‘work outfits’ category and have found a great section in Nordstrom that has brands like Trouve and Ro & De that combine function and fashion at a semi reasonable price. the Limited and Express are still go to’s for the basics and sometimes splurge on a nice pair of pants at Banana Republic or JCrew. H & M and Zara also help me with the trends without killing my paycheck.
So I’ve been in training for the past week causing me to be behind on outfits, but here are 3 of my favorites from last week and today:
