What to Wear: to work


what to wear

I didn’t necessarily mean to take the week off of blogging, but I did finally get that looming resume done- minus a few tweaks, so it was a well-used hiatus.

This week on What to Wear, we are showing you what we like to wear to work. I didn’t have time for many photos because, well, I was running late for work…

what to wear to work

I work in a really busy, family owned restaurant, and one of my top three things about working there is that we get to wear what we want. My only two rules are: hair up and comfortable shoes, and even those are kind of self imposed.

I’ve worked there 7.5 years, and my work style has definitely changed over the years. I used to focus more on being comfortable and casual, now I still like to be comfortable but have fun experimenting with my wardrobe.

Adrian gave me this skirt a couple months ago when we met for coffee and I love it! It’s so versatile and goes with everything (in my mind…). I won’t show you a closeup of the shoes because my Minnetonka moccs have seen better days, to say the least. They have been trusty work shoes for two years now, but it’s seriously time to break down and buy a new pair.

Well, I’m off- I’m curious to see what the other ladies wear to work! If you feel like joining in, just head over to the linkup on Gypsy in Jasper!

    Could that skirt be any more fantastic? I think not. What a wonderful piece of attire, and to be given it by a friend is tops it all. I really like how you’ve styled it. Personally, I stand by your self-imposed rule of comfortable footwear. I wonder how some ladies do it. I had a wee giggle yesterday, as I was walking home from a restaurant after dinner. A beautifully dressed woman off to the side of the walkway, bending over as she changed her shoes into flats. I could almost feel her sigh of relief.

    Cute skirt! I love the colors. And I am the same way with my moccassins: I wear them until they are almost worn through because they are so darn comfortable! Up until last year I had a pair from my freshman year of college (that would be seven years!)
