Now that I am working at a company that has a much more casual dress code, I've been trying to think of innovative ways to be stylish yet functional at work. Because my duties no longer include greeting clients and essentially being the face of the company, I can dress down and be more comfortable. I know that there are some of you out there in similar companies so I thought I would curate some great items to be productive and professional in the work place.
Jeans are work appropriate if paired with a nice sweater or blouse. Try to pick something with visual interest as it pulls the outfit together without having to add layers and copious amounts of jewelry. I also think it's fun to add in a simple metallic flat to dress up the look a little. Lately, my go to jewelry has been very minimal. Don't get me wrong, I still covet my collection of statement necklaces but sometimes it's nice to just wear a simple chain and stud earrings.
Never underestimate the power of a sleek, structured bag. Not only are they super fashionable, but they can hold much more than meets the eye (and typically they keep everything more organized than a slouchy tote bag). Fill yours with unique and fun desk accessories and you're ready for work! How amazing is this octopus coffee mug? I think that's going to be my next desk purchase.
