Personal style at the office can certainly seem like a complex conundrum of messages and subtexts and politics, but at the same time it can be pretty straightforward. If you find a “uniform” (or two, or three) that works for you, it can be very simple indeed. For me, a “uniform” works if it checks off the following boxes: (a) it feels comfortable, (b) it makes me feel confident, (c) it makes me feel at least a tiny bit excited about the day ahead (even on the worst days), and (d) it fits my office dress code. Can’t forget that last one, sigh.
My blah, blah, blahs aside, this was a pretty solid outfit. I finally found some dressier tanks at J. Crew Factory, and bought one in white, blush, and black ($10 a piece, totally worth it). As much as I love my prints, a solid colour top is sometimes just the ticket.
Tomorrow is the last day to submit your Office Style #OOTD to EverywearYEG for a chance to be featured in next Tuesday’s (October 6) spread in the Edmonton Journal. I was thrilled to be asked to help “curate” this theme, and I have been having a lot of fun checking out everyone’s amazing office style on Instagram. Hey, it’s not too late to wow me, so come and join in the fun!
