Working Woman // OOTD

As a working woman I need an outfit that I can feel comfortable, cool, & content in. Since I do my social media management job from home, sitting at a desk is a large part of my life. But I also find myself pacing around to make phone calls, driving to meet with clients, running around checking off errands, traipsing outside to take photos, & all that jazz.

I enjoy the freedom of movement. My style can alter depending if I'm getting together at night with girlfriends or going to a movie with my boyfriend. That's great & all, but this look specifically articulates the every day casual look that I need to succeed & feel relaxed in when working. This is my I-need-to-get-stuff-done outfit.

The Nike sneakers get me where I need to go but fashionably. The brown shorts from Target are easy to wear & simple to style. The flowy tie dye shirt is perfect for summer since it has a semicircle shape with open sides; ideal to let the summer breeze in. The six prong drop earrings with cubic zirconia & amethyst, courtesy of Anjolee*, give me a bit of pretty pizazz.

Anjolee reached out to me to style an amethyst replica of their Six Prong Solitaire Diamond Drop Earrings. They have a variety of jewelry options ranging from a diamond bolero tie necklace to a princess cut bangle bracelet to a timeless engagement ring.

I'm all about a casual wearable look, but I love to add a bit of energy to bring it up to my style. The relaxed sneakers & cozy shorts matched with a bohemian blouse & dainty earrings mesh to keep me feeling comfy but slightly posh. That's the best of both worlds. What's your go-to workable & wearable outfit? What do you think of mine? :]

  5. I love this casual outfit. It looks very cute and comfortable for lounging or working at home, and I also like that you can wear to go meet a friend for coffee in the middle of the day. Those drop earrings are gorgeous, by the way.

  12. It's really important feeling comfortable nowadays. Maybe that's why the sneakers trend is still huge? Yours are gorgeous, and your earrings are beautiful, too!
