My white button down has recently become quite sheer. Not in a cute. stylish way rather in a I’ve worn this blouse so many times and it was never supposed to be sheer sheer. For the record, sheer patches are not cute. I’m looking to spend under $350 for a really quality white button down that I can wear on its own during the week and layer on weekends.
I’m a recent grad looking for a work tote. Is that even a thing? I don’t want to fiddle with bags with flaps or anything really expensive. Just a classic tote for work. I’d appreciate any suggestions.
4 out of 5 work days I’m toting. It’s just easier than any other option out there. Coming and going, tossing things here and there. It’s the best type of bag for my commute and for gatherings after work. I’ve been using this one in orange when I need a little color and this reversible one when I need a black or tan option. I’ve picked out a few more that will work, shown below. All are under $300.
After countless wasted hours, I’m on the verge of giving up on finding the right wear to work and at work boot. I’m lucky enough that living in DC means I get to walk to work and it only takes me 25 minutes. My office has a pretty professional dress code so it’s a pain to either a) leave a couple pairs of heels at the office or b) carry a pair of heels back and forth (because there is no way I’m walking over a mile in heels every day). Also, I’m very petite (5’1) so I very rarely wear flats. Now that the weather is getting colder, I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect pair of (preferably black) boots that are comfortable enough to wear during my walking commute and professional enough that I can keep them on at the office and wear them with a pencil skirt. All I’m looking for is something with a moderate heel, that comes up slightly above the ankle, and that is professional without being “old lady” ish. Am I asking for too much in one pair of boots? What’s your go to wear-to-work boot? Any advice you may have is appreciated.
Girrrrrl. I hear you. It’s easy to get discouraged when you can’t find exactly what you’re looking for. I get caught up in the gorgeous hardware on most boots that make them office inappropriate. I’ve found a few that I know would work in my old office that was more business professional – so I’m hoping they work in your office, as well.
