Trystan of This is CorpGoth has started a mid-month theme! I love blog events that bring people together, and in true CorpGoth fashion she has chosen work attire as this month’s topic. More specifically, your go-to work look. At my previous job, that would have been a maxi skirt and a feminine top, but at my current office I find myself inspired to achieve a more traditional business look. Not that I’ve banished the maxi skirts – they still have their place in my work wardrobe but I try to balance them out more with pencil skirts and blazers (especially on meeting days).
I’ve had this dark grey pencil skirt from Target for a while now, and it is getting a ton of use. It’s basic, goes with everything, and is a nice break from black (keeps the new co-workers from asking so many questions). I very recently scored the purple cowl-neck shell on sale at Macy’s, and I’m having a hard time not wearing it every day. 😉 The blazer came from some random clothing store ages ago. Short-sleeve blazers are awesome in that they project a professional image without being at all stuffy. I chose to go unbuttoned today to show off more of the shell, and give a slightly more casual vibe.
