30 for 30: Outfit 16








Occasion:

I have had this sweater/blazer in my 30 for 30 since the beginning but I hadn't worn it, so I decided to get creative:) This leopard blouse has been a great remixer in my closet in general so I knew it would be great in my 30 for 30! I wanted to go for a business casual meets after-work-happy-hour look. I paired the structured sweater with this fun patterned blouse and a black pencil skirt for a very office appropriate outfit (even though I am now in school full time and I can dress really casually, I did work in a non-profit development (read: fundraising) environment for 2 years so I still consider outfits that would work in the "real world"). To add some fun details and some interest to this ensemble, I decided to double belt. I paired a gold leather snake-skin with a brown leather braided belt and knotted them in the same way. I finished off the outfit with my camel colored equestrian boots and a cool charm necklace. What do you think?

Outfit:

Black Undershirt: Pink Orchid

Blouse: Target

Sweater: Banana Republic

Skirt: GAP

Tights: Century 21 (Hue)

Boots: Banana Republic

Belts: (Gold) J.CREW (Brown) LOFT

Do you consider work and 'after work' when you plan outfits?
