Dressing like a professional but still wanting to be fashionable is something that I think most women struggle with. Do you wear the trendy skirt (that you know looks totally amazing) and risk judgement from your boss? Or do you play it safe (and absolutely boring) and stick with a navy pant-suit? I don't think that there is a right or wrong answer to these questions, but I would argue that balance is paramount.
For this outfit, I went for it and chose the trendy pencil skirt. I think that it spices up the outfit, without going overboard. Paired with a tucked in, simple button down shirt and funky t-strap pumps, this outfit is office appropriate and perfect for after work drinks with co-workers.
I chose to keep the jewelry simple, but also made sure that it spoke for itself. No need to go overboard when you are already wearing bold pieces for the work place. Now all you need to do is grab a briefcase big enough for all of your paperwork and you're ready for the 9-5 grind! Get after it ladies!
