Work to Weekend

Two questions I get asked frequently are how to make workwear appropriately stylish/modern and how to dress in a chic but comfortable way for the weekend.  So today I'm sharing two outfit ideas - one for each of these situations. When it comes to office attire, it's important to let your personality shine through.  For me, that means mixing tailored items with a little bit of edge (like a moto jacket in an unexpected hue).  This balances out more conservative pieces and helps the outfit feel less stuffy...while a buttoned-up blouse + slim cropped trousers keep it classic & sophisticated.

What I'm wearing:
c/o ShopSosie jacket (or similar here), c/o TopShop shirt (I'm wearing a US 6), 
c/o TopShop trousers (I'm wearing a US 4), c/o TopShop heels
Romeo & Juliet Couture bag (similar here or here), Lips: Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm (Standout)

On the weekend, it's all about comfort - especially if you work in an office where you have to be dressed up all week long.  But wearing comfortable pieces doesn't mean you are confined to sweatpants & sneakers.  Choose a soft sweatshirt, easy knit skirt & ankle boots for an outfit that looks like you put some effort into it...without sacrificing the coziness you crave.  Add a vest or denim jacket on top & you've got a casual look with just the right amount of polish.

What I'm wearing:
Lovers & Friends vest (similar here or here), c/o TopShop sweatshirt (I'm wearing a US 2), 
c/o TopShop skirt (I'm wearing a US 6), Forever 21 boots (similar here or here), 
ASOS clutch (similar here or here), Zara bracelets (similar here and here)
