Day to Night: How to Glamorously Accessorize Your Business Casual Look
I’ve been having such a good time with my #LookGoodFeelGood photo challenge on Instagram. There is definitely a correlation between the way you look and how you feel. My confidence is boosted and I find myself to be a bit happier every day, partly because I’m having fun with myself!
I’ve done some fashion posts before, specifically for dressing your body type. I don’t fancy myself a fashionista or stylist, but working in LA, I do get a lot of inspiration from the various styles I see in a day. I don’t feel like I have any one style. I gravitate toward boho, but my style depends on the day and what I’m doing. The most recent prompt for the instagram photo challenge was ‘dressy casual’. I put my look together and realized I was more business casual, but I guess the two can be interchangeable. I really loved the look and how I accessorized it, so I thought I’d share.
(I’ve even included links so you can shop and recreate the look!)
I paired my favorite over-sized Mossimo blouse from Target with charcoal gray pixie pants from Old Navy. If anyone else out there is a munhckin like me, their ankle length pixies are PERFECT.
As for the blouse, I’m a front tuck girl, but this style looks good all out or fully tucked in as well. A benefit of the over-sized blouse is, it’s full-chest friendly. You know that button that sits right on the bust is normally a struggle… doesn’t do it with this one!
Laser cut shoes are kind of my thing. I just love how they look. I got these Chinese Laundry loafers at DSW and they go with pretty much everything in my closet. I love versatile pieces that can go from day to night, casual to fancy… I want to get use out of what I buy. These are those shoes.
I went with bold, glamorous accessories for this look. I love the juxtaposition of simplicity and glam. This is the Retro Glam Square-Cut Crystal Bracelet – $48
These are easily my favorite studs. They’re the perfect large stud, super shiny, and they go with everything. Round Crystal Stud Earrings $24
Lastly, the Mirabelle Petite Collar Necklace $58. I loved how it tied the whole look together and really set the tone for my business casual glam.
A simple bun and natural makeup complimented the look. I think it’s a great look for the office and easily transitions into after work happy hour attire.
If you haven’t been following my blog, fashion posts like this are a big deal for me. I typically live in jeans and yoga pants. But, jumping out of my comfort zone this month has been really fun and I want to share some looks and what it’s doing for my mental health! Thank you for following my journey.
I don’t know who needs to hear this, but if you’re carrying guns, it’s not a protest. #CountEveryVoteFollow
