Today I am linking up with Tara over at Mix and Match Fashion for her What I Wore to Work linkup. About half of my posts on this blog are work outfits, and the other half are casual or going out outfits. Although I work in a corporate office, I have quite a bit of flexibility with my work wardrobe thanks to Seattle's casual culture. =)
This outfit is a great example of what I wear when meeting with suppliers: a blazer, collared shirt, fitted skirt, and heels are polished and professional. I love the brightness that a white blazer brings to this nautical outfit, but I could just as easily wear my navy blazer too. The red satchel and heels bring out that little stripe of red in my skirt. Can I just take a minute to say how much I love the timeless shape and gorgeous color of this bag? I was shopping at our local outlet mall a couple of weekends ago with a friend, and immediately spotted it when we walked in the Michael Kors store. It was like a tractor beam! This satchel is made of saffiano leather (which I thought only Prada used!), and it looks like it will hold up well. The price was too good to resist, and my friend ended up buying one too. Win-win!
What are your go-to pieces for work? Thanks so much for reading!
