burgundy cardigan with a white roll sleeve tunic

$49 Burgundy Cardigan | White Roll Sleeve Tunic ($28) | Faux Leather Moto LeggingsSimilar Leopard Pumps | Black Work Tote | Black Parka

It’s been a burgundy end of the week over here! Going back to my uniform which is leggings, this burgundy cardigan, and a tunic. I feel like I’m consistently re-wearing this simple formula for the office during these months. I just change out my pumps and a few accessories! This cardigan already sold out once so I’m linking to a few alternatives in case it does again!

If you don’t own this $28 tunic already, buy it in every color that’s in stock! Trust me, you’re going to love it! I’ve heard so many success stories from you guys over on Instagram that you have purchased (and fell in love with) it too! It’s just so good for everything from wearing it with leggings to tucking it into business skirts. I will caution you that the v-neck in the front can be a little revealing at certain angles but not enough to deter me from wearing it to work! Especially under my favorite scarf!

I’ve also been walking to work in my Hunter Boots this week. The weather has been so unpredictable and a few days have brought some rain so this is my most logical option. They keep you relatively warm (with some cozy knits underneath) and the grip is great for snow or rain when the sidewalks are slippery.

burgundy sweater dress with lace up sleeves and faux leather leggings

$55 Burgundy Lace Up Sweater Dress | Faux Leather Leggings (worth it) | Black Pumps | Black Work Tote | $20 Marble iPhone Case | Black Puffer Coat

This is how I’ll be wearing dresses until May! Just kidding. But really, since it’s too chilly to wear them the regular way, I’m going to play around with wearing them over leggings. Unless I somehow find the courage to walk outside in these freezing (literally) temperatures with bare legs between now and the end of winter, that is. I am wearing my regular size in this burgundy sweater dress and it fits well – not too tight and not too figure hugging either!

I told you guys I was going to find more ways to style these leggings! Now, they are going under dresses! I love these as an alternative to tights because they are thicker and therefore, warmer. I also layer thermal leggings under these faux leather ones when it gets colder. For more ways I’ve styled leggings for work, check here.

For my favorite tall boots for winter, this post has my 5 top picks! I usually wear the black suede “night out” boots in the office and the Hunters on my walk!

PS. I just got a new puffer coat that didn’t cost an arm and a leg! It’s also 33% off. Everything this brand does is really good quality!

bobeau rose gold silk top with kendra scott necklace

Bubble Sleeve Satin Top (6 colors!) | Gold Long Statement Necklace | High Waist Skinny Jeans (33% off, size down one size) | Tan Suede Pumps | Tan Work Tote | Peplum Coat (30% off and surprisingly warm!)

This bubble sleeve satin top is something else! I love the silky texture of it and the bubble sleeves. What I really love though is that the sleeves aren’t crazy big so that they get in your way when you’re doing things during the day. It’s a tasteful amount of “bubble”. Tops like this are perfect for work and are my solution to staying trendy in the office. This top would also be perfect for any type of business pant or skirt as well if you’re in a more conservative office. It can tuck in easily! I’m wearing my regular size and if you’re busty, I’d recommend sizing up a size because it does close at the neck in the back!

Here are all the colors of the top. I’m wearing “mauve”.

I also got the ruffle version of this top in my latest order because these tops are so great for work!

A note on this necklace, if you haven’t heard me say it before, I tend to wear these long statement necklaces a ton during the colder months! I have a silver version of this one as well so that way I have one necklace to go with all my cold toned things and can wear this necklace with my warm toned things. The necklace comes in unlimited colors (you can literally create your own if you go direct to the Kendra Scott store) but I opted for the basics because I wanted to maximize wear. That means, I only need 2 necklaces to get me through the whole year. I’ve had these for at least 3 years so they last a really long time.

I added a third necklace just because I wanted a slight difference though and really loved the tassels. This gold tassel necklace can be worn multiple ways and I probably end up wearing this one the most. It also comes in silver and rose gold. These 3 necklaces are the extent of my long necklace collection! You don’t need much other than this trio!

Here is the steamer we use as I mentioned on Stories! Literally a game changer for our clothing and saves SO much time!

dark green trapeze cable knit sweater with a white button down

Dark Green Cable Knit Trapeze Sweater (4 colors!) | White Button Down | Faux Leather Leggings (these are the ones I swear by!) | Black Pumps | Black Work Tote | Black Trench Coat

Sweaters are a staple in everyone’s closet so when you have the opportunity to take a cute, trendy one and wear it to the office, that makes me incredibly happy. Perhaps it also makes me proud of myself… I showed this in the story but the cut of this cable knit sweater is a little non-traditional because it’s got a swing shape. I wasn’t sure how it would look layered over something but was thrilled when it worked. That just means there is more than one way to wear it and I’m all about that. I ordered my regular size! Here are the other 3 colors:

Breaking out these faux leather leggings again! I’ve been trying hard to show you guys all the different ways you can wear these to the office (browse them all here)! They’re incredibly slimming and I’m a firm believer that every girl should have one pair of these in her closet. They come in multiple colors and the brand just came out with a moto version this year which I also own (and adore).

A note on the button down! This top is by Frank and Eileen. They are really good quality button downs but also pretty pricey. I’ve been asked for a few recommendations for button downs lately and honestly, my go to is always J.Crew Factory. If you missed my sale picks in this past weekend’s sale alert, there were some slippers I’m obsessed with for under $30!

grey cowl neck knit top

Convertible Neckline Top (only $54, in 8 colors!) | High Waist Denim Jeans (33% off, size down one size) | Grey Pumps | Marble iPhone Case | Favorite Long Necklace

I love this cowl neck top so much!! It’s such a great top because it’s basically like a 3 in one (as I tried to show on my Instagram Stories). Of course I opted for my favorite color (grey) but there are 7 other great fall colors available! I’m currently debating between getting a second one in the dark green or burgundy. I’ll probably end up going with burgundy! Here are all the colors:

Order your regular size – I thought I sized down but I checked the tag mid-Instagram Story Session and realized that I am wearing a Small! I wouldn’t be able to size down and still wear it off the shoulder with my broad shoulders. Next time I wear this top, I’m going to try layering it over  this $49 flannel or a relaxed fit button down! I feel like it will be really easy to style so many ways!

I have no idea where I got this statement necklace from so I linked to a few great silver options! Necklaces like this are stables for my wardrobe when colder weather hits because they are so slimming. You guys have seen me wear this tassel necklace in gold quite a few times here on VOV!

On another note, it’s definitely getting colder here so I’ve been walking to work in either the UGGs or the over the knee flat boots from last week’s roundup of the best tall boots for cold weather!
