outfit for the office on a cold day

IMG_9621

We are SO CLOSE to the beginning of the end of winter, but unfortunately we’re not there yet. I finally replaced my snow boots with these from Macy’s,¬†and I like them very much, but in cold weather you’ll need an additional liner or extra-warm socks. This¬†outfit helped me stay warm in the office with lots of layers, a warm sweater, and fleece-lined tights.

Boots are from Macy’s, sweater from Penney’s, purse from Target, black button up is DKNYC. It’s another gray day here today but I hope it’s sunny and warm where you are.

new outfit: sweater weather at work

rae's days outfit of the day for work
Today in New York it is rainy and snowy and blustery. But on another day last week, when it was more like fall and less like winter, I wore this sweater to work. I love the colors on it–it looks so fall to me. I paired it with a black pencil skirt and leopard shoes, and I felt cute and warm.

If I were to wear this outfit today, though, I’d add some tights and boots. For a more casual office, you could do jeans and a puffy vest.

Skirt from Banana Republic, shoes and bag from Target, sweater from JC Penney, chambray from Land’s End.

new outfit: blush

pink shirt

Back from vacation means back to work. At least I have new clothes. Shirt is from Marshalls, shoes from Target, purse from H&M, skirt from Zara.

I’m really into the light pink color. I like to call it blush, so I will. I’m also really into this light, floaty sheer fabric. It seems good for summer. I felt feminine and cute, but still professional. Which is a win-win, I think.

I started a new role at work this week. It’s been busy, and I’m not totally comfortable yet, but it’s good. When I’m unsure of myself, I feel a lot better when I am sure of my outfit. Clothes can be like armor, you know?
