So, a friend of mine inspired me to try the choker trend that is widespread these days and I’m glad that she did! She has this classic black choker that I love (and now own) so I decided to feature that in my post today.
We are allowed to dress business casual to work, which to me is a very tricky term because I feel like people always mess up the fine line that draws business from casual. I still think that you can show your personality in your work wear, but a lot of things need to be considered.
Nothing flashy in my work attire today. Just a pair of plaid crops from Loft (non-plaid version here), my favorite black Portofino dress shirt by Express, Black Slip Ons by Zara (Similar here and here) and Choker by Aldo.
For good measure, I always bring a black blazer with me to work too – for that unexpected meetings that might mean a lot more business than usual.
With this type of look, I kept my hair in a ponytail, because I find it to be distracting with my hair down sometimes, and I left my makeup as minimal as possible. I’m wearing my favorite nude lip from Too Faced Melted Lipwear line (Wearing Melted Sugar).
I also love my new work bag that I carry with me everyday of the week now. I can keep my laptop, notepad and my personal essentials like wallet, body spray, keys, glasses, conveniently in it. I purchased this tote before I returned back to work from American Eagle Outfitters.
I am obsessed with these shoes – Thanks to my fiancé for buying them for me. All of my shoes are actually credited to him. He has such a great eye and he always pick them out for me believe it or not. I like shoes that cover my toes at work because open-toed shoes are a little too casual to my liking. Plus, they make my toes freeze! But, I do like peep-toe wedges or pumps for work too, just not an overall open shoe type of person like sandals. A big no no in my books!
Hope you enjoyed this look.
