Office to Outing

Wednesday, February 24, 2016

In just under one month, I will officially be joining the corporate workforce of New York City. Naturally, the first means of preparation I could think of was the wardrobe. Despite the impending blow to my bank account, I am excited by the opportunity to expand my closet into a newly mature phase. As always, I prefer investing in pieces that work for various occasions, both in and out of the office. 

Vest & Sweater: Zara | Jeans: Topshop | Shades: c/o FREYRS
Shoes & Scarf: Zara | Bag: Kate Spade Saturday (similar here)

My latest work wardrobe additions have been this sleeveless waistcoat and skinny scarf from Zara. Though generally basic pieces, they add touches of personality that ensure my style remains intact even in the corporate environment. Finish them off with a monochrome look, and I'm ready for meetings both in the conference room and at happy hour. Of course, I'll probably have to trade out the distressed jeans once my start date rolls around.

How do you shop for your work wardrobe? I would love to hear any tips and tricks below!
