neons and neutrals

I have to admit, I don’t have many pieces of clothing in my wardrobe that really say “office appropriate” other than my trusty blazers.  I don’t actually think I own a single pair of black trousers or a pencil skirt – although I will say, both are on my “to buy” list, eventually.

It turns out, however, that this is perfectly acceptable for my workplace.  I work at a yoga and fitness studio were the dress code is “fancy”…that is, just make sure you look fashionable and cute.  And when I came in to work with short shorts on the other day asking my boss ” Are these shorts to short?” her response? “The shorter the better, baby!” Yep, I have a cool boss.

What’s your dress code at work?

beige blazer: Forever 21
shorts: Wilfred via Aritzia
lace tank top: Aritzia
clogs: Swedish Hasbeens via Aritzia
bracelet: Forever 21
sunglasses: D&G via Sunglass Hut
hot pink bag: Kate Spade

      Funny story about the hasbeens! Last May I was shopping with my mom for honeymoon and bridal shower outfits in Aritzia. The girls at the shop picked out these shorts and a Winter Kate blouse and I put on the hasbeens to just dream about the outfit! At that same time my dad came into the shop and surprised me by buying me the entire outfit as a bridal shower gift so I could wear the outfit on my honeymoon! So the shoes are from Aritzia and I wear them to death! I highly recommend!
