Last fall I became totally enamored with this ivory lace blazer at Forever 21 and had to make it mine. I was excited to be a little bit unconventional and pair it with my long lace skirt from Newport News, seen previously in this post. This outfit is from my post stash from my old job that I never got around to publishing… I still barely have time to think straight, much less take blog photos, since starting my new job. But I promise a new set of outfits showing what I wear as “the new girl” will be coming soon!
The blazer sat in my closet for a while because it’s very sheer and I don’t have a light-colored shell or anything to go under it … A cami would have looked tacky, because the jacket is sheer enough that the straps would have been obvious. Finally I realized I could just put a white t-shirt underneath, as long as I disguise it from the front. That’s where the silk chiffon scarf comes into play. Tied into my “signature” scarf-bow, I topped it off with one of my favorite brooches. This brooch came with a sweater I once bought from Newport News.
The brooch features faux pearl drops and rhinestones, so I wore pearls and rhinestones in my ears to match. I also wore my silver rose ring, because it seemed to go so nicely with the blazer. And, since I’ve also been into really big hair flowers lately, here’s a giant off-white one I made myself, previously shown with one of my black and white outfits. I’m just about the only person in my office who gets at all creative with hair styles, and definitely the only one who wears flowers, so this big one might be a bit much for work.
Do you think over-sized hair flowers are too ostentatious for an office environment?
