I hate everything in my closet right now. I just sent three bags to thred up. I am down to 35 hangers in the tiny closet I share with my husband. The closet looks clean and organized and my weekend uniform of skinnies, everlane t-shirt, and infinite scarf is easily accessible. (Thank you Mari Kondo!) I love what I wear on the nights and weekends because I’m comfy and it’s easy.
I have a hard time getting dressed for work. I’m not a dress up kind of girl most of the time. Have you heard of people wearing a “work uniform” It’s a cool idea. Has anyone tried it? I don’t even know how I would pick such an outfit. I’ve tried stitchfix and decided I am way too particular about fit and feel of material for it to work for me. I literally can’t stand shopping in a store anymore. I’m old. Nothing is worse than walking into a dark store blaring loud music or wandering aimlessly not sure what you’re looking for. I love shopping online, but I’ve had terrible luck lately and end up taking back 100% of the things I buy. I haven’t found anything I love that I can wear to work and still makes me feel like me. I’m looking for something that is relatively plain, fits great, and can be dressed up with accessories.
So, I have been searching a lot online. I found a few pieces that I love. Problem. I hate work clothes. I love black, white, grey, blue, stripes, and polka dots. Classic outfits with slight 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s twists. I also typically need a petite. Any ideas anyone?!?!? Here’s what I found.
I’m slightly obsessed with this dress. It’s literally everything I could want in a dress. Totally my style and I think I could make it work for work. Problem: I can’t try it on and it’s awfully expensive to chance an online order on…
I actually already own this. I bought it for a wedding and I love it. Maybe a cardigan and some close toed wedges? Does it work? (see what I did there?)
How about this cute skirt with one of my everlane t-shirts and close toed wedges?
This would be really cute with black pants and flats!
