What is your go-to office look?
I have been lucky to work at creative workplaces most of my life where office wear is super casual. Lately my day-to-day looks consist of PJs on work from home days and lots of coffee shop looks like this one.
The idea of office wear should be simple and utilitarian. Who wants to get up in the morning to contemplate what to wear anyways? Pro-tip: plan the night before to avoid being late. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t show any personality. Distressed denim is a daily uniform for me given how comfy and easy to style it is. Paired with a polka dotted top to beat the Monday blues and black booties to give the right edgy feel. Choker is optional, but recommended. Throw over a leather moto jacket and you got yourself a simple office look.
Thank you for reading, have a wonderful week!

I totally agree about simple (comfortable) looks with a small twist for the office. I love how versatile ensembles can be, and the simplest of jewelry pieces can transform a look.

You look great, girl! Totally agreed with you that office wear should be simple and utilitarian. I cannot wear distressed jeans (or any kind of jeans, for that matter) to work…but happy for you that you can! Polka dots and choker are just perfect together!
