Balancing act

I don’t know about you guys and galz but sometimes I get in a rut when it comes to my work attire. I am always trying to maintain my professional appearance while still expressing my personal style. I feel like this outfit really achieves that. The pencil skirt, although a typical work piece, is in a fun bright color. The gray sweater is more of a relaxed look, however, paired with the pencil skirt it is perfectly acceptable in my business casual office. The necklace helps to dress it up a bit. Looking professional and stylish in the office doesn’t have to be expensive either. The sweater is from H&M and the skirt was thrifted.

The pencil skirt

So every once and a while I have to dress like a big girl, and yesterday was one of those days. I can’t always wear poofy skirts and plaid button downs. Those things have never really screamed professional. So I dressed up my way, with a purple pencil skirt. Maybe it’s because I always loved the the purple teletubby, but I loved this skirt from the moment I saw it. I was going to tone it down with some gray, but then I remembered I had this blue shirt that I knew would be the perfect shade to compliment the purple.
