Everyday Clothes

October 22, 2012

When I graduated college, I really started putting my “professional” wardrobe together…I had my work clothes, and I had my other clothes.  But as I got older, I realized that I wanted to look polished all the time…not just for work.  So I stopped buying t-shirts, and started buying tops that not only look good with jeans, but that could also be dressed up for a business causal look.  I need my clothes to function for work and for play.  This floral blouse (a recent thrifted find…it was a BIG score that day and I’ll be sharing the other pieces soon!) looks appropriate with jeans at the pumpkin farm.  And it will look equally great with dress pants or a pencil skirt and heels.

My two little pumpkins!

    I think we all go through this stage… I’m just now entering into mine where I’m weeding out all my tees and trying to build a “real” wardrobe.

    Great look! I love that top! It can easily go from play to work!

    I totally agree about the work clothes vs free time clothes. I think nice & comfy sweaters, and fitted blouses can be worn either way, so your thrifted shirt is a great find!

    I love the blouse – it’s inspiring me to go thrifting!

    And I completely agree about collecting more put-together clothes for everyday life – not just work. After being out of college 5 years, I feel like I’ve FINALLY got a hang of finding clothes that I can wear to work AND the rest of the time.
