Professional Edge



Shirt (Gap); Skirt (Banana Republic Outlet); Tights (Nordstrom); Necklace (The Limited); Sunglasses (Kohls); Watch (Fossil); Bracelet (Gift); Earrings (Nordstrom); Shoes (Kohls)

This oufit sort of reminds of a T-shirt tuxedo - formal, but ready to party.  That's how I feel in this look which I refer to as business professional with an edge.  While the button down shirt and skirt is pretty basic, the tights and shoes add a fun dynamic.  Sweater tights are such a great way to stay warm and integrate various designs/colors/textures to your outfits - and they're durable (I've had this pair for 2 years now)!

I LOVE the first sentence of this post. We always joke at work when we're semi casual/dressed up with the line "its like the outfit says, I'm serious, but I'm here to party" :) Your blog always gives me such fantastic outfit inspiration for work/evening function transitioning. Love it!
