Other than getting up a lot earlier, dressing for work has been the biggest change as a post grad. As discussed last week, I had chapel dress on Wednesdays at OCS the five years I was there. During that time I loathed and I mean loathed dress pants. We had to wear either a skirt or dress pants and I don’t know that I ever wore anything other than a skirt at least once a week for five school years in a row. (Please, no autographs.) But, going into the working world, I knew I had to find pants to throw into the rotation. Full disclaimer: My office is not business professional. I would say we’re between professional and business casual, which does make a difference! Loft is the place where I found the perfect pants for me. They are the most perfect work pant ever. They are comfy and easy to wash — basically leggings. What’s also great about them is that they also come in navy, which means I have to wear color.
I could wear black pretty much every day of the week, which is shocking if you have met me. I love color! But in the work place, I thought I would have a hard time getting away from my neutrals. Luckily, these pants–and other Loft items–have helped me keep a colorful wardrobe for work. I still absolutely LOVE how chic and easy black on black or black and white is for work, but sometimes it’s nice to switch it up. I linked some other colorful work appropriate items in the widget below for you to shop. Let me know how you like to bring color into your working wardrobe! I’d love to get some ideas.
Also, my Barrington tote is my work bag, and after three months of using it, I must say I am so impressed. I will definitely be repurchasing from them! This bag is next on my list. It’s so easy and the leather straps are like butter. I highly recommend for a school or work bag!
