Work & Play.

It's been years since I have bought more than a handful of clothing items that were strictly for "play". Due to my very exciting night life (or lack thereof), almost everything in my wardrobe tends to pull double duty. If I can't use a piece as part of my work wardrobe, it's very likely that it will hang out in the back of my closet for a very long time.

However, with a little creativity, many things can be fashioned into workwear.
A chiffon dress? Great! Let's put a sweater over it and make it work appropriate. 
A fitted pencil dress? Let's put an oversized cardi over it and belt it.

I guess it must also be said that my office environment is pretty casual. So, I often use the term "work wear" loosely. Regardless, the idea still holds true. Pieces that can be used in different situations often give the best bang for your buck--easy peasy day to night transition is where it's at!

  1. Gorgeous outfits!


  2. I loooove your style! So glad I came across your blog! :-)

  3. You can send your old clothes my way anytime!!! ;) you must have a lot of clothes. ..i wish i had your wardrobe!!!

    1. Thanks so much!! :) I do have a lot of clothes. But, that's not always a good thing! I have a girl's get-together with my friends every few months and give a lot of my clothes away. I always feel like much less of a hoarder afterwards. =P

  4. Love every single outfit! Your blog is fabulous :)


  5. Your style is always so well thought out and put together! Love following your blog and instagram. You're definitely one of my inspirations for starting my own fashion & lifestyle blog! Thanks for being as fabulous and fun as you are!


  6. Wow, you did a great job re-vamping some of your "play" looks! I never would have though that the dress in the last pic would be work appropriate, but you did it!


  7. Hi I am a follower of your style, your posts are my everyday inspiration I like very much how you combine your clothes with your jewelery. But, I would like to see more of your posts¡¡¡

  8. Hey! I check all the time to see if you have new posts and love finding uniques pieces you wear and adding them to my wardrobe! Anyway, I clicked on the Opaque black tights link and the black is all sold out :/ please update in the future posts! Once again, I'm a huge fan!!!!!

  9. At the beginning of this month I had major foot surgery, and I'm now almost halfway through my time off of work and stuck on my couch. I discovered your blog, and have loved combing through it, dreaming of the day when I'll finally have my cast off and be able to dress up to go back to work. Apparently my husband noticed, because I opened up my Christmas gift from him and found the entire Cayla dress outfit from him. Thank you so much for sharing your fashion, and for inspiring such a great gift!
