thrifted office outfit

I’ve been spending my days working in a design studio and although I can wear pretty much what I want, it’s been fun to be able to dress up a little for work. Dresses and skirts were all well and good at the restaurant, but wedges and heels- not a chance.

This outfit was entirely thrifted and this skirt was an amazing J Crew score. It’s hard to tell in the pictures, but the orange is actually a raised texture.


top, skirt, necklace, shoes: thrifted
watch: c/o Sprout


I can’t believe I boycotted office life for so long- another perk is spending the day in ice-cold AC, which makes the Phoenix summer a little more bearable!

    Cute outfit! I love when I thrift pieces that all go together. I agree about the perks of dressing how you want (though still looking nice!) and having a nice, cool office :)

    I love this combination. The colors are so pretty together. I wish I had an office job because the idea of AC and pretty clothes all day seems just about perfect.

  5. Super cute! Air conditioning is definitely my favorite thing about work in the summer!
