Work Wear



I was wearing:
Grey knit sweater - Banana Republic
White button-down - Ports International (vintage)
Gem headband - Banana Republic
Black trousers - Penney's in Dublin
Glitter ballet flats - Spring
Lipstick - NYC Pink Parkfait
 

Well this is about as 'plain jane' as it gets! 'This' being the outfit I wore to work yesterday. If you follow my blog you probably know that I am currently working at Banana Republic. With a target market of professionals in their 30's & 40's, we've got a pretty strict dress code; which doesn't always comprehend my personal style. I've taken on the challenge however of fitting within the guidelines while making each 'work-appropriate' outfit my own. In this particular case I've added a little glitter in the shoes & headband, as well as a pop of bright pink lipstick to make it more fun.

It was nice to wear my new grey knit, however I'm really looking forward to styling it differently; something more to my personal taste (I'm kind of stuck on pairing it with a green maxi at the moment). Alas, for now I've got 2 more days of work to go... & two more work-esque outfits to jazz up. 

Happy Monday - hope you all have a great start to the week! :)
