Office Appropriate Outfits - Spring

Apologies for the lack of outfit posts this week. Holiday weeks just throw me for a loop. Not that I’m complaining about four day weeks at all. Trust me.

Anyway, I don’t even have that exciting of an outfit for you today. It’s a suit. A black suit. At least I added some stripes?

I had a meeting today at a location with a “casual” dress code but I didn’t want to show up in jeans. So, in order to make my suit more casual I added a tee shirt and rolled up the sleeves of the jacket.

Admittedly, it took me a lot longer than it should have to come up with this outfit! I’ve gotten so out of the rut of wearing my black pants that I honestly forget what to pair with them. Something so simple shouldn’t be so difficult, right?

Anyway, if I had wanted to wear jeans I would have kept everything else the same and just swapped out the black dress pants for my bootcut jeans. See? Easy casual Friday look all set for you for tomorrow.

Speaking of tomorrow, I’ll be posting my Favorite Outfit of May round-up so don’t forget to come back and vote!


P.S. There might not be any close-up shots of my left side for awhile. I, uh, accidentally gave myself a black eye on Saturday morning while hurriedly pulling on my arm warmers before going for a run. My hand slipped and I literally punched myself in the face. See? Bloggers are not perfect.

    I have found that black goes with EVERYTHING, except perhaps dark brown, but even that can be dealt with. I have several pairs of black slacks in various states of disrepair and fabrics. Your outfit looks sharp, preppy and professional. Love the pop of the red beads! PS. Pancake or theater make-up will cover up that eye! Feel better soon!

    I often feel super overdressed if I’m in a suit – this is a great way to tone it down just enough to still be professional, without rubbing it in your face. 🙂
