What to Wear: to work

what to wear

Yep, it’s that time again! This week, the theme is work outfits. To be honest, I wear pretty much the same clothes at work that I wear the rest of the time. My standard outfit in every facet of my life is a dress, tights and cardigan. Still, I try not to be too boring, even if I rarely stray from that uniform. I’m an editor, and I feel like since my job is fairly creative my penchant for bright colours and bold patterns is fairly appropriate.

Casually reading the magazine I edit.

I kind of really like primary colours, and I especially love weird and/or bright tights. As you can see, I demonstrated some restraint with this outfit, opting for an unusual colour without a pattern. I really feel like an outfit is successful when someone either asks me where I got my tights, or asks if my legs are tattooed. It happens more often than you might expect!

My eyes looked crazy in every picture I took, ahh!

I generally try to avoid anything too short or super casual at work, but otherwise, I don’t really follow any particular rules. I’m lucky I have a lot of freedom to EXPRESS MY UNIQUE PERSONALITY at work, which I guess is important to me because I need everyone to know that I’m a special snowflake.


Admiring my elegant ring.

These wedges are approximately as comfortable as slippers.

You can't actually SEE that I'm wearing these earrings, but I promise I am.

  1. You ARE a special snowflake. I love those tights. I just bought my first pair of yellow tights and I have no idea what to pair them with. Eeep.

      Nicole: The answer is EVERYTHING. Seriously. They are like the miracle color of fun tights. I ripped my last pair months ago and feel the pain. I’ve been on a hunt for fresh yellow tights.

      You can basically wear them with ANYTHING. When I’m trying to be more low key, I just wear them with a grey dress or something. I really find they make any outfit look better/more interesting.

    Very cute outfit! I’m definitely in a similar boat of bright colors and patterns, tights and dresses, so I feel ya! Also, those earrings are adorable.

  3. Super not boring! I think yellow is the only colour of tights I don’t own…hmmm. What happens in the summer when you have to put away the tights? (wink!)
