Springing Up Green

Office Appropriate Outfits - Spring

Chicago style blogger, pink pencil skirt, green sweater, denim jacket

denim jacket with pearls

Jacket – Langford Market (similar) | Sweater – Banana Republic Outlet (similar) | Skirt – Jones New York (similar) | Necklace – Langford Market (similar) | Shoes – Bandolino (similar)

When I saw today’s Pinterest Inspiration photo from H&K Style Journey and crew I immediately thought “Crap! I already wore that outfit!”


But, never one to shy away from mixing up the items in my closet, I broke out the green textured striped sweater and the pink pencil skirt again. Only this time I paired them with my nude heels (and nude fishnet tights), my fancy pearls, and my new denim jacket.

As I mentioned in my February Shopping Summary, I purchased this jacket during a blogger event at Langford Market Diversey for 40% off.  Will I wear it around the office all day? Maybe, maybe not. I do love how it looks with the pearls and the pencil skirt, but sometimes I actually get hot in my office (I know? An office that’s too warm??) so it will probably come off.

It’s okay if I go sans jacket, though. The outfit is cute enough on its own.

And in case you’re wondering, I did indeed wear two jackets today. This denim one and then a heavier one over the top. Chicago isn’t kind enough to let me get away with just a denim jacket. Not yet, anyway.

    I wore pink and green today too! I really like that bright pink skirt – it looks great with the green. And pearls are awesome too! And boo for not being able to wear one jacket yet 🙁

    Not that this is particularly relevant for me personally, but as a general question: are denim jackets fair game for days other than casual Friday? It seems contradictory to me that you’d be allowed to wear denim on top on Monday through Thursday but could only wear denim on the bottom on Fridays.

    Also, very jealous that you get hot in your office. Pretty sure that’s happened to me *maybe* once in the entire time I’ve been here.

      I think it just really depends on your office. At a previous job we weren’t supposed to wear ANY denim, ever. Even though I once got in trouble for wearing a denim jacket while another supervisor was wearing a denim dress, but whatever.

      I could definitely wear my denim jacket all day at my current job although I would only do it if I didn’t have any meetings and wasn’t going to see anyone but my coworkers.

    I need a jean jacket now that I think about it! So versatile! And I totally wear a coat over my blazer…then I feel so puffy and big on top- totally worth it over being cold though.

    I love the color combo! I did a similar pairing a on Monday- so springy!
