Office style


Lately, I’ve been preoccupied with developing my office style. You may have guessed this if you read 3 ways to wear tricky trends to the office. I just love how clothes can help transform not only your mood, but also your brand.
My husband, who is well-versed in reading pointless articles online, recently read an article stating that the way you dress contributes to other’s perception of you. I remember learning this in a college course called ‘Psychology of Dress’ (I got my BS in Merchandising and Advertising- no bigs), but had swapped that knowledge for an appreciation for comfort once I joined the workforce. 
It has been 5 years since I collected my diploma, but only recently can I say, I love the role I am in and the company I work for. Being excited to head to the office kinda, sorta makes me want to look a little  good while I am there. (No tennis shoes allowed.)
This office ensemble features one the most comfortable and luxurious pieces of apparel I own: DVF trousers. These really make me feel as powerful and confident as I wish to always be. If you must know, I got them at Nordstrom Rack.

Trousers: Diane von Furstenberg (similar on sale here); top: Sanctuary (via Stitchfix…in white here) Shoes: Rebecca Minkoff (similar here) Ring: JewelMint; bracelet: Gerard Yosca.

      Thank you, Victoria!


    You’re a woman after my own heart – I’m a huge fan of expanding my work style as well. I went from a fairly demure, all-black wardrobe to injecting some prints, color, and fun in the last few years. I firmly believe work is more fun if you love what you’re wearing! 🙂

      Affirmed. Work is definitely more fun when you love what you’re wearing!
