Did any of you see the recent post I did about office-wear inspiration? Basically, I was feeling bored with my uniform of khakis and black button-downs. So I went on the hunt for more creative and sophisticated options, and came up with a gallery of amazing looks that, while not appropriate for all offices, were perfectly suited to my more relaxed work environment.
And then I did something amazing. I actually took my own advice (for once!) and attempted to shake my wardrobe up a bit!
So in the days since, I’ve scoured my closet for some inspired work outfits: items that had color, interesting patterns or that were just unexpected in their nature. Take a look at what I came up with!
I’m ever-so-slightly terrified of color (read: very terrified). But in an effort to look more interesting, there’s really nothing easier than to throw on a simple dress in a loud color. Because it’s bright, I don’t have to fuss with extra details–I can keep everything else neutral. And when I’m flying around the house at 5:30 in the morning, nothing beats simple and easy.
I liked the boxy shape of this shirt, especially when paired with loose-fitting trousers. And look…THERE’S. SO. MUCH. COLOR. Okay, so maybe maroon and orangey-brown don’t scream “color,” but still. Baby steps, my friends, baby steps.

My wardrobe is still a work in progress, but what do you Lovelies think? Am I work-ready or completely off the mark?
