As a fashion-obsessed twenty-something in the work force, it can be challenging to create outfits for the office that are stylish and appropriate for the professional setting. Since I work in a creative field, it's important for me to create a look that's polished and put together without appearing old-fashioned. I recently picked up a few new pieces from the fall fashion lines at Sears that help me achieve a modern look for business meetings, but the items are so cute that I've been wearing them after work as well! Keep reading to see how I mix and match my new Sears finds to create a look that seamlessly transfers from the office to a night out with friends.
My new fall office staple is this tweed skirt from Sears. The chic black and white pattern provides an interesting detail to the outfit without being too flashy. This week I've loved pairing my skirt with button-down blouses, and this teal top adds a fun pop of color to the outfit. I think the rolled sleeves and unique neckline keep this blouse interesting while still remaining professional.
I paired this outfit with my new Studio S handbag from Sears, which is the perfect size for toting around your laptop, notebook, planner, and any other office essentials. The black leather and gold detailing is timelessly chic, and the buckle accents give the bag a modern edge. This bag and my gold chain link bracelet are two office accessories that I'll be wearing every day of fall .
I like to keep my makeup simple and subdued in professional settings, but that doesn't mean I can't add a pop of sparkle with my accessories. These sparkly flower stud earrings were quickly added to my cart at Sears, and they provide the perfect amount of glitz to the outfit.
Also, did you check out my new Kardashian Kollection black patent pumps? Go buy them- immediately. The classic shape and color are the ideal addition to any fall outfit, and they're actually really comfortable!
While I'd definitely wear my first outfit after work, I decided to mix things up a bit for an after-work dinner date with my husband. My outfit change took only five minutes, including time to change my shirt, add a few accessories, and touch-up my makeup!
While the tweed skirt looks traditional paired with my teal button-down blouse, the contrast of the navy lace against the black-and-white tweed gave the pattern a more modern look.
