This is another one of those really comfortable outfits that is slightly dressed up with a beige cardigan. That cardigan I linked to is 33% off right now and it’s still fully stocked in all sizes. It would be a great layering piece for spring. Definitely something you could grab on your way out the door. Plus, I love the draping on this similar one!

I shared this white blouse top over the weekend because I realized it is 50% off making it only $27! It comes in 6 colors, here are the others:

I also own the ruffle version of this top because these tops are so great for work! You can easily layer them under a blazer for a more corporate office and even wear it on an interview under your suit.

If you haven’t snagged these boots yet, do yourself a favor and do it! Save them for fall if you’re in a warmer climate – they are so perfect for a variety of outfit combinations. I’ve worn them on repeat over the last 8 months!


OOTD 2.26.18: Olive Tunic Top and Black Cropped Pants

Re-styling these black cropped pants with this olive tunic top! This is the top that I would recommend getting in at least one (if not 4) colors. It’s really affordable at $28 and comes in handy so often. It’s especially versatile for the office. It can be styled with pants like these, a pencil skirt, leggings, or even denim. So, there are a lot of options!

PS. If you’re shorter OR plan to wear this shirt only tucked in, try this shorter version!

I also styled these cropped pants here and here. I like that they’re a twist on the usual business slacks. If you’re in between sizes, size up. I have wider hips so I sized up and they fit perfectly. The belt can also be removed and replaced with a leather belt for a different kind of look. Love all the options!

Linked similar pumps with a leopard print. I feel like any time I have a less than interesting work outfit (or outfit in general) leopard really brings it up a notch. Ironically, guys at the office tend to notice too. If guys notice, I feel like it’s a really good outfit. Since they don’t usually notice much of anything!

Can you tell I’m ready for the weekend? This is one of my favorite weekend outfit combinations and I’m wearing it to the office. A perfect way to end the week on a casual Friday. This olive weekender jacket is my favorite piece and I’ve styled it multiple different ways over the years. It has held up so well and I’ve had it for over 4 years!

This striped top is a great basic that you can throw on with anything and is under $20. It comes in several colors so pick it up in a few colors and be guilt free. It’s longer as well so you can wear it with leggings. Comes in 5 colors too in case you’re looking for another style of basic!

I’m back in my faux leather leggings and riding boots that I’ve worn before too. If you’re not comfortable wearing them to work, just swap out for jeans! You can also trade out the boots for a pair of pumps. You could even style this striped top with those business slacks I’ve worn before. Definitely an all around, versatile basic.

OOTD 2.13.18: Suede Jacket and Faux Leather Leggings

Back in leggings! I just wanted to be comfy but cute with this outfit. I’m going all neutral with it too. These faux leather leggings are the easiest thing to wear for me when I want to be comfortable at the office. When I know I don’t have many high visibility meetings or when it’s going to be a long day, I always try to break them out. To see other ways I’ve styled leggings for the office, click here.

This suede jacket is old but I found a few similar ones. It goes so well with this white top that is a re-style. It’s on sale and is one of those classic tops that you wear for years and years. Definitely a workwear essential for every girl!

Ready for more sale items? These boots are 50% off and I love them. I own them in 2 colors and they are really comfortable. Just size up a half size especially if you’re looking to wear thick socks with them. I love how this taupe brown color balances out the jacket.

OOTD 12.14.17: J.Crew Utility Jacket and Striped Tee

j.crew downtown field jacket and a striped tee by Chicago fashion blogger Visions of Vogue

Olive J.Crew Utility Jacket (this has lasted for 6 years!) | $19 Long Sleeve Striped Tee | High Waisted Jeans | Thermal Leggings | Similar Riding Boots

Alternate Style: Red Flats | Red Plaid Scarf

This is literally my go to outfit. Any day that I just don’t have the inspiration to figure out something chic, I put on this combination. What I love about this utility jacket plus striped tee combination is that it actually looks like you tried! You can wear this on the weekend or to the office if you work in a casual workplace too!

This olive J.Crew utility jacket is one of my favorite purchases. Initially, I thought it was so overrated. However, it’s lasted over 6 years and it’s been through the washer. In my book, if something survives the washer (and doesn’t require dry cleaning), that’s a huge win. It’s just one of those basics that every girl needs in her closet. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve tried other military jackets too but this one just fits the best and has the most versatility!

This striped tee is another Nordstrom steal because it’s only $19. I wear it all the time whenever I want to incorporate a little more print into my outfit. It’s a great layering basic and since it’s under $20, you won’t feel guilty about buying it in multiple colors. There are 6 colors and prints total! I also like to wear this combination with a red plaid scarf! And in warmer temperatures, I swap out the boots for red flats. It looks really good, I promise!

These Tory Burch riding boots were one of my investment purchases from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale earlier this year! I had been holding out, waiting for the sale to purchase! They’re out of stock now but I’ve rounded up some similar riding boots! I just love the way riding boots look with a good pair of skinny jeans.
