Office friendly

Most of the clothes I wear are not what I would consider to be "office friendly." But since I don't work in an office, that really doesn't matter. Every once in a while, though, I get the urge to put on a pencil skirt and a button-up shirt. It makes me feel professional and career-driven (though I'm really neither of those things). If I were to wear this to an actual office job, I'd probably swap out the boots for a pair of pumps and the denim jacket (pictured below) for a blazer.

Also - this outfit is pretty subdued for me! No belt, no hat, no plethora of crazy bright colors...I like the simplicity, though, and I feel like the necklace and the patterned tights keep it from being downright boring.

Oversized button-up: free from my dad
Skirt: thrifted from William Temple House
Jacket: thrifted from Rerun
Tights: Forever 21
Sunglasses: Oscar de la Renta from TJ Maxx
Necklace: purchased in Florence, Italy


  1. These booties are really great! I actually do work in an office, but don't always dress office-y (though always appropriate). I love this look on you! I actually wore a pencil skirt yesterday for the first time in forever and it felt so strange. I totally know what you mean!

  2. I agree, I think it is great for the office (if you had to go). But I like that the patterns on the tights add some fun personality :)

  3. adorable outfit!! simple chic. <3

  4. I really like how understated this outfit is. I'm a huge fan of crisp button up shirts, and this a great use of one. Neutral on neutral is not as easy to pull off as it looks.
