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!

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.

Even though spring isn’t here in Chicago, I’m loving this white on white combination. Or rather, ivory on ivory. This Free People thermal is the same one I shared last week that was on major sale. Sharing it reminded me that I should find a way to style it for the office. It’s one of those comfy weekend tops that I always love to find a way to make work appropriate. Even if it is a bit of a challenge. Nordstrom started their winter sale this past weekend so I found a similar $39 thermal!

My solution was to dress it up with a moto jacket. Mine is old but this one is a really similar one (that I actually own in another color). I also really love this draped one. I know you guys have been loving my moto jacket outfits lately so I’ve been trying to incorporate them more. A little jacket in the office also helps me stay warmer because I’m usually freezing in the office. Even with a heater under my desk!

I’m also wearing my favorite faux leather leggings for a more comfortable option. I find them appropriate for my office and am totally confident wearing them because this thermal is quite long. More like a tunic. If you’re not comfortable with it, easily swap it out for blue or black denim.

One last reminder about the Nordstrom sale that’s been happening lately – these boots are 50% off! I love them and own them in two colors. Even if it’s starting to get warm where you live, grab them for next fall. I love buying items at the end of seasons because the deals are just so much better. Definitely one of my tips for saving money!

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.
