White for Fall

Office Appropriate Outfits - Fall

I saw a lot of posts at the end of last week about how it was people’s last chance to wear white before Labor Day. And, as usual, a lot of questions about whether or not those of us reading continue to wear white afterward.

Well, I totally keep wearing white after Labor Day. Here’s proof:

I actually saw a girl in my office building wearing a very similar outfit last week but she had on a flared skirt, not a pencil skirt. Both versions are cute, it just depends on which style you prefer to wear.

I liked the mix of brown and black and, of course, mixing leopard print with stripes. And, of course, it reminds me of an outfit I wore almost two years ago now that also included brown, black, leopard and white.  So, clearly my tastes haven’t changed that much.

Also, in case you’re curious, I rode a Divvy bike home from work on the day I wore this. But, I changed into workout capris and flats. I still haven’t figured out if it’s possible to ride a bike in a pencil skirt. Have any of you tried it?
