Office Appropriate Outfits - Winter

Jacket – Forever 21 | Blouse – Forever 21 | Pants – The Limited (similar)| Shoes – Bandolino (similar)

Just to show you that I actually wear the outfits I put together in my collage posts, here’s me actually wearing my Work Luncheon outfit from last Wednesday.  I really love all the different textures in this outfit and I think it’s a great way to showcase a monochromatic look.  It’s all the same basic winter white color but the gold in the blouse and the sparkle and texture of the jacket keep it from looking too bland or too much like a uniform.

Speaking of this jacket, if you have a spare $29.80 I would order it STAT from Forever 21 (free shipping today!)  It’s really good quality, fits nicely, and will class up just about any outfit.  It’s a Chanel look for a non-Chanel price.  Seriously, can you just picture it with jeans and just about any color shirt underneath?  Or over a black dress? Or, you know, kick out the additional $19.80 for the shirt I’m wearing and you can pair them together with just about anything and look fabulous.

And just so you don’t think this is all I wore on my commute:

The gray wool coat makes an appearance!  Not pictured (yet): my hat and my gloves.

    I love winter white! This is a fantastic look and I’m kicking myself for having spent all my wardrobe budget already this month. Dang that jacket is CUTE!!!

    Ooh, I saw some all white outfits in Real Simple recently, but I like how you were able to put yours together not with a million expensive items. I love that blouse!!

    Oh I LOVE this!! I am not brave enough to wear white pants (I’m not even sure I’ll be able to pull off the cream lace skirt I just got), because I’m usually not the neatest person, so I’d prob get them dirty. But I love the texture and the sparkle in this. This is how winter whites should be done!

    I’m not sure how I personally would feel about wearing an all (winter) white outfit but I really like the look on you. I am now seriously considering that jacket and blouse! Lovely.

      I had this idea in my head but it was really solidified when I saw it in a Banana Republic ad in a magazine. All white is a combo most people don’t think of. But it can be just as slimming and sophisticated as all black!

    The white looks so chic, and I love the mixture of patterns and textures! The gray coat is gorgeous, too.

    I bought a pair of polar-bear white pants and wore them for the first time last week. But, I was so nervous all day about getting them dirty. The odds of me spilling tomato sauce on myself go up exponentially when I wear white!!!

    Oh every time I see someone wear an all white outfit like this I get super inspired to try it and then I remember that I have almost nothing all white left. (I’m death on white clothes. They just never make it.) This is so gorgeous and the all white gives off such a luxurious look, that F21 blouse is really versatile!
