Cubicle Fancy Week Four;

July 15, 2011

First off, I'm terrible sorry this has been so delayed. Lots of things have been happening around here and sometimes the act of getting dolled up and shooting pictures of yourself isn't exactly appealing. This week I wanted to share with you one of my favorite vintage/thrifted finds. It's a high-waisted pencil skirt and every time I wear it, I feel office ready! So without further ado:

In look one I really wanted to highlight not only one of my favorite office ready looks for a pencil skirt, but also show how you can keep it simple and summery. On average there is about a 100-105 degree heat index where I live, so the last things I want to do are put on something heavy or long sleeved. So I layered two basic colored tanks (white and navy), tucked them in, added a neutral brown wedge, and dressed it up with a scarf.  You can use the scarf as a trendy hair wrap or a necklace! Note: If your office is totally against baring this much skin pair with a light cardigan (such as this one) or fitted office jacket to complete the look.

In looks two I really wanted to get away from the neutral colors and add a pop without being too bright or too crazy for office wear-ability. An easy way to do this is to grab a comfy (but fitted) v-neck in your favorite color (such as blue, forrest green, or in my case, red). You can wear the shirt tucked in or out (either would look appropriate and classy). I added a red high heel (though be conscious not to get too matchy-matchy...2-3 pieces in the same color are more than enough). To top the look off I added a metal headband adorned with an owl (because I'm obsessed with owls) to infuse some of my own personal style.
