Bonus post tonight! This is my post that SHOULD have gone up on Wednesday, buuuuut of course I’m late LOL. Anyhow for work Wednesday I wore a fall maxi dress. Actually I wear this dress all times of the year, but I love it for fall because of the colors. The browns and orange remind me of leaves changing colors. I absolutely love the geometric lines as well, it makes me look longer and leaner than I am and helps hide my fluffy midsection. So, to make this all season maxi work appropriate, I added a blazer. To top off the fall feel, I’m also wearing some brown boots.
If you want to know where these items came from, that is challenging because all of these items are OLD! haha.. when you find a good quality piece, hold onto it. Espcially since maxis seem to never go out of style! Ok the dress is from Long Tall Sally, but again from years ago. Buuuut look at this maxi dress they have for sale this season! Talk about a fall maxi, I love it!
Blazer is from Target, and the boots are Etienne Aigner that were gifted to me a couple of years ago. Some similar boots are found here.
Good afternoon! Today’s a big day, the pilgrims are on Arafat, the Pope is in town, and it’s Yom Kippur! Lots of stuff happening, unfortunately for me it’s just another humdrum work day. Oh yea also it’s the first day of Autumn! Sooooo for today’s work Wednesday I wore autumn colors and also pulled these items waaaaay out the back of my closet lol. And now that I’m looking, it totally has a 70s vibe. This nice flowy top is from H&M, the blazer is oooooold from Lane Bryant and the pants are from Long Tall Sally.
Today’s post should really be called “back to basics” I think. Today I just wore basic work wear. Solid pants, and blazer and sleeveless top. So recently I was in a Facebook group where there was a discussion about where to get modest clothes. One thing I suggested/advised was not to disregard clothes that are sleeveless or short because many times those items can be modified to make them hijab friendly. So for me, many of my office tops are sleeveless or short sleeves and I just add cardigans or Blazers. I also like separates for work because you can mix and match them and with just a couple of pieces, you have an entire word robe ! Happy hump day!
I meant to post this last night but wasn’t able to. Time just goes by so fast doesn’t it? Well this is my 2nd work Wednesday blog. Today I made one of my weekend casual looks work appropriate. The pants are jogger pants and I usually wear them on the weekend with some sandals. For work I just added a blazer and heels. Adding a blazer and heels can transform most outfits from being super casual to either work appropriate or for going out for a night on the town.
Here is the look when I wear it on the weekend.
And here it is when I added the blazer and heels for work.
Blazer is from target but a cuter one can be found here.
Pants are Eshakti and this was my first time getting pants from them. I love them, perfect for summer because the material is cool and breathes. They don’t have anymore in this design, but here is a similar pair.
So I’m going to try something new and hopefully this will help me get into a regular blogging schedule. You may know already that I do something called Fashion Blogger Fridays where I share different fashion bloggers that I have come across and like. Now I’m adding Work Wednesdays. These posts will be work wear, and I’ll share links and ideas about different options to wear to work. Since the majority of my clothes are work wear I thought this may be kind of fun. Soo without further adieu, below are pictures of today’s outfit. Most of these pieces are old so the stores where I bought them probably do not have them anymore. They are basic pieces though that can be found anywhere. This is just a simple black top and pants that I jazzed up a bit with a stripe blazer and brightly colored bag. Very simple and comfortable, but office appropriate.
Blazer: From Target, however, it is from a year ago, similar blazers can be found here or for a more affordable version here.
The top: A sleeveless black blouse, similar ones can be found almost anywhere, I like this one from H&M.
Pants: Wide leg black pants form NY&Co that are like 8 years old. A good pair of pants are an investment! Similar pants can also be found anywhere, I also like these from H&M.
Lets not forget about the bag! What better way to add a pop of color than with a bag? This fuscia bag is from ShopTarb. I don’t think there are any like this one being sold right now, BUT there is the Illa Lane collection for sale now and they are Fabulous, so check it out!
