WorkWear Wednesdays: Peplum Blazers & Pencil Skirts

Sometimes in the office you want to give off the power-suit vibe with a hint of sexy. Today I paired a striped peplum blazer with a basic black pencil skirt. Suede Black Pumps and a red handbag for a classic pop of color finish off the look. I would keep the lipstick in the burgundy shade because you don't want a bright red lipstick in a corporate setting.

Birds Of A Feather

You ever eye an article of clothing forever and hope that the price goes down just because you don't want to pay retail price for it? That's how I was with this was 42.00 retail price and because I had already purchased a million maxis this Summer I couldn't justify paying almost 50 bucks for another maxi I truly didn't need...but when Fashion To Figure had their first annual Semi-Annual Sale and it went on sale for 14.99 and it was only left in my size, I knew the fashion Gods had answered my prayers.

Needless to say, I snatched it up with the quickness and once I saw how beautiful and vibrant it was I was SO glad I didn't pass up on this beauty, The dress is a statement alone so I added my favorite black blazer and threw in a coordinating clutch to finish off my look.

WorkWear Wednesdays: Red & Leopard

I'm back with another workwear look. As you can see I have a fondness for leopard print and I try to find ways to incorporate it into my workwear looks without going over the top at the office. Here I paired a leopard blazer with a red midi skirt and a pair of patent high heeled pumps.

Tribal Prints

Sometimes you just want to keep it simple. I originally purchased this top to wear for my Birthday but decided against it so I wore it to grab a bite to eat with my Hubby because this is his Birthday weekend (yes we are both cool!) I am a print fanatic so when I saw the peplum was printed and had a lot of pink it in (my favorite color) I knew I had to have it. Since the top is the statement piece, I just paired it with a simple black pencil skirt and pink pumps. I really loved the colors in this top and the sweetheart neckline.

You guys know how I feel about peplum anything...I know I have a million and you probably are about sick of seeing them but they work for me and when anything works for me I tend to go overboard. If it's not broke why fix it? They can go from the office, to casual wear, to date night, pretty much anywhere so I won't ending my peplum obsession anytime woon.

WorkWear Files: Leopard In The Office

A lot of times we want to wear leopard at work but we don't want to to TOO much at the office. I like to wear prints and color to the office but I always keep it on the more conservative side. If you work in a more relaxed atmosphere it may be different but my office has a professional dress code so I like to keep it professional at all times.

Below I created a look for the office and the skirt comes in plus size and is available now for only 23.00. Clicks the links to find similar items in plus size.

The Maxi Tee

I've been seeing the Maxi Tee all over the Internet this Summer and I was a little bit scared to try it because I'm already super short and had reservations about it but I'm so glad I got over my fear and tried it out.

I received this one from Chic and Curvy Boutique and wanted to review it for those of you who have yet to try it. It is very long on me being that I"m only 5'2 so I have to wear it with heels. If you are a tall girl it would be perfect for you with flats but if you are short like me wedges or heels would keep it from dragging the ground so much. I think it runs pretty true to size. It can be paired with leggings, jeans, shorts, or a skirt and it would be super cute either way.

I decided to pair my maxi tee with a pair of leopard leggings with a tuxedo stripe. I've had these pants for over a year and never got around to wearing them and I thought they were a perfect match for this Tee. I decided to add a pop of color with some neon pumps. I think if you haven't tried the maxi tee yet you need to try it out!!!

WorkWear Wednesday

I know a lot of you guys want work-wear ideas and I had planned on putting more work-wear on the blog but in between working full time, and juggling being able to schedule time to take blog pics and manage family life it's hard to shoot work-wear looks in addition to the other looks I try to get on the blog weekly. My Husband is my photographer and he also works full time so it can be tough to schedule time to take pics.

Since I can't schedule time to take workwear looks right now I will start making collages with workwear ideas and then let you guys know where you can get similar items to recreate the work look. With the outfit below, I just bought a fuschia cardigan from Forever 21 and this is how I will be wearing mine to the office. Check the links below to recreate this look if you like it.
