Good morning! Last week, Matt and I were adapting to the new puppy in our lives. Who knew these little cuties were so much work! This week I’m going to continue posts on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Hope you enjoy the second week of this series.
Today I’m sharing two ways to wear a white button down shirt. In the corporate world, this piece is essential for your wardrobe. I’ve also learned that it works great out of the office. It’s important to remember to make sure this shirt fits perfectly. If it doesn’t fit properly, and/or you don’t feel confident in the shirt, you’ll never wear it. As strange as it might sound, this might be something to take to the tailor and have it fit properly.
As for today’s look, the first look is your traditional outfit for the office, black trousers and a white button down. I added a wool tie for a fun accessory. The tie can be switch out for a pussy bow for a more feminine look.
As for the evening look, I’ve paired it with one of my favorite faux leather skirts. These skirts look professional, but for most corporate offices probably not appropriate. This outfit gives you the professional appeal outside of the office.
