Today's Everyday Fashion: Trendy at Work






































I love outfits like this for work. The skinny pants and accessories are trendy, but the blazer keeps it professional and shows that you mean business! How do you dress at work - would this look be too dressy, not professional enough, or just right?

  1. I could wear this on a Friday, but I would be forced to swap out the boots for pumps. Very cute!

  5. I love this look! I wear something similar to work at least twice a week. But, usually I swap out the grey pants for dark denim or black. It's simple and comfortable, but classic and put together at the same time. :)

  6. Thanks everyone! Just a note that these pants are really not that tight. Don't let the term "jeggings" fool you. :-)

    Krista, I'm still looking for a new job. In the meantime, I keep my old company's dress code in mind when picking outfits for work!

  7. Definitely a Friday outfit for me but I really like it! We're more of a dress pants office for the rest of the week.

  8. I'd love to be able to wear jeans to work. Unfortunately that's a huge no-no, even though some people wear black jeans.

    I'd totally go for this outfit!

  11. I love this outfit! I work at a youth center, so this is actually a little too stylish for work for me... I think I'd get some raised eyebrows.

  12. Hi J,
    I often think the outfits posted on your blog are so cute, but where do you shop? Do you get your stuff at outlet stores? The prices you list are often considerably lower than what I would find at the stores listed. At first, I thought it might just be that I live in a big city. But, I checked online to verify and find this is usually not the case. For example, those Gap jeggings are listed on their website at $69.50. What gives?

  13. The outfit is very cute ... but I could not wear it to work, it is not professional.

  14. Hi Megan, I don't usually buy clothes from outlets and if I do, I'll specify in the caption. One thing to know about Gap/Banana Republic is that the prices are WAY, WAY better in the store. I recently got a jacket there for $25 - and it never went lower than $60 on their website!! I also never buy anything without at least a 30% or 40% off coupon, and I have a Gap card so I earn rewards that I use towards the purchase price. When I buy something new, I post it and let you guys know how I scored that deal - so stick around and I'll teach my tricks! :-) I also post my coupon codes at the link below. Oh, and the jeggings online right now are not the same pair as these, I bought them this summer and they have been sold out for months!
    Best,
    J.

  15. Love the outfit, however we are in no way allowed to wear jeans in my office. Not even on Fridays... It's dress pants or skirts only :( I would totally wear this outfit outside of work though - looks great on you!

  16. I think it's fading on the gray jeggings that is making this a little too casual for me but I love the look I wear tight pants almost everyday and I get away with it (though it might be because I'm just an intern) but I've seen others wear tight pants. I love the jacket and the shoes. I would wear this with darker pants for sure. I love this!

  18. perhaps form fitting, rather than tight is the better word.

  19. Just right, actually :) My office is thankfully pretty casual, but we do need to dress it up to "profession" when we have clients coming in.

  20. We can do denim on Friday, but I wouldn't wear skinnies to work unless I had on a really long top. I'd do this look with boot cut or trouser jeans though.

    BTW, I think your version of this look is cuter than the inspiration!

  21. I absolutely love this look - it's one of my favorite outfits to wear to work for casual Friday! :)
