For the casual workplace + Meet a new friend
Well I’m back to work today, and I’m a complete mess. Partly excited to be reunited with my coworkers, but mostly sad to say goodbye to the one-on-one time with my sweet baby boy. To distract me from this gut-wrenching week, I thought I’d share a few fall workwear looks that are easy to throw together.
I plan to prep my wardrobe every Sunday, so I don’t have to pick out outfits every morning, on top of getting baby ready and out of the door. That being said, easy workwear looks are a must. I don’t know about you guys, but my office is on the more casual side. We can wear jeans thankfully, but I still like to look polished and put together.
Today’s look can easily be dressed up if you work in a more corporate environment. For my 9-5, I’m wearing a dark denim, over the knee boots, and a simple long sleeve top under this gorgeous, knit poncho. You can also throw this poncho over a black dress, slacks and a blouse, or with a skirt and a long sleeve top. It’s a great layering piece, that screams fall!
My opinion on workwear is keep it affordable, and always comfortable. If you aren’t comfortable sitting at a desk job for 8 hours a day, you are miserable. And, if you are required to dress more professionally, you don’t want to break the bank. Get a few key pieces that you can layer into several different looks. Classic silhouettes are always a good idea too. TJ Maxx always has great pants and blouses, blazers and skirts for the working woman.
If you want more workwear inspiration, let me know! I’d be happy to add a few more posts, here and there to keep the ideas fresh and on trend. I can also make the looks more professional if needed.

The internet is a crazy place. Over the last several years in this space, I’ve meet some awesome people, and even better friends. I thought it would be cool to share some of these incredible gals with you all, in hopes that you would show them a warm welcome, just like you guys did for me.
