Spring has finally sprung and that means sun, flowers, pastels, and some light layering, well at least it does for me. This year I didn’t get a chance to have some spring fun with my Easter outfit as I was working on some projects last weekend so I figured I should try to bring it to work instead. I’ll admit that until this point I have only had experience working in places with a rigid traditional work dress code so I feel very fortunate to currently work for a company that is a safe space for trying new styles. Ever since I bought this silky pale pink with black polka-dots blouse when I started college nine years ago it has been my go-to spring work piece that I would normally pair with a blazer and pencil skirt so I decided to give this traditional work outfit a bit of a casual, cute remix.For this look I swapped my traditional black blazer for a quirky off the shoulder peplum top, a statement separate that adds a playful feminine touch to this outfit. Paired with my sleeveless polka-dot blouse I just love how it created the subtle cold shoulder that is both work appropriate and fun. This look came together with some gold accents from the buttons on the blouse, to the detail on the bow belt and these metallic pointed flats that I recently purchased for $10 from Kohl’s. These flats were the best choice for traveling into the city for work as they are so comfortable to the point that they feel like I’m wearing slippers. It was hard not to smile in this look so I am very happy I took a chance and tried something new.
