I started today’s work wear look with this very chic Sass and Bide First Pitch Trent Style Coat which I came across in their recent Fall Updates email. I love getting fashion updates straight to my email but it can also lead to a lot of trouble, especially if I am in a “life is short, buy the shoes” kind of mood.
The coat comes in both black and white, and I think if I were to buy this item I would go for a more practical black but these posts are not supposed to practical, so white it is. Keeping in mind that the weather is hot & humid, I wanted to balance the long sleeves and overall heaviness of the coat with shorts or a skirt and found just what I was looking for with this Caslyn fine-jersey skort (!) by Theory Theyskens. Shorts and skirts can be risky in the office but these aren’t too short and the tailoring helps to keep them on the more formal side.
I am not normally a high heeled pump kind of gal but I can make an exception for Jimmy Choo with these Abel patent leather pumps. These are very officey shoes but the patent material adds some texture to the look, they compliment the skort and they keep the look office appropriate. (If I was to wear this skort on the weekend, I would be more likely to pair it with some wedges or cute flats)
And to finish off this second work wear post of the week (stay tuned this week as I post a new look each day!) I found this Jordi tote from Country Road, in gorgeous plum/burgundy which pairs well with the green of the shorts and would look great with an almost but not quite matching lipstick colour.
Looking chic at work is effortless with this oufit.
