WORKING IT


Cardigan - vintage, Blouse - Nasty Gal, Jeans - BDG, Socks - Ozone Socks, Shoes - 80%20

Just another day at work day. I work in a fashion-forward, creative environment, so everyone basically gets to wear whatever they want to the office. I always have so much fun getting dressed up for work. I kind of keep an idea of what I want to wear in my head right before I go to bed, then throw it all together in the morning. My outfit ideas usually start off with a certain color combination that is interesting to me, and I take it from there. I was in a deep navy mood this day, but I wanted to feel sparkly and festive, as well. Thank goodness for my metallic cardigan. It never lets me down. And neither do polka dots. I'm taking a break from my usual friendship bracelets and random conglomeration of things on my wrist. Been keeping my wrists bare lately and reach for one statement piece at a time, like this watch that looks like a real Rolex but isn't a real Rolex because I paid $1 for it at a garage sale. Hey, that's fashion.

This picture was taken by Naomi, my friend and co-worker, for the Free People blog, BLDG 25.

And check out my new guest blog post on VOLCOMUNITY on the songs I can't stop playing right now! See it here.

Beautiful choice! It's so much fun to dress up for work and be stylish, but still looking "normal" to go out on the street after work.

I really like your cardigan big time :)

I put my outfits together in a similar way - I usually choose one article of clothing or a pair of shoes and work around that.
