workday grind

Thrifted harem pants, H&M grey blazer, Steve Madden sandals, and Aldo purse

It’s always tough to get back into the workday grind after coming down off of a great weekend. Yesterday, I hosted the Shop The Blogger Closet sale with some other fantastic fashionistas, which it turned out to be a great event (no less to this epic selfie). The upcoming week will be hectic with starting a new gig and wrapping up the old one, so I’m super grateful that Friday is a holiday and I get a bit of extra downtime this weekend.

I haven’t had a whole lot of time to thrift lately and I’m hoping to do some during the week to pick up more “business” appropriate pieces for work: blazers, pants that aren’t denim, and some comfortable heeled shoes. I’ll always try to make it fun though, like these harem pants paired with a geometric necklace. Never thought I’d incorporate these harem pants into a workday look, but as long as I don’t do them Justin Bieber-style, I think I’m in the clear!

  • Loving the harem pants! I’m always finding ways to slip sweats into my “business casual” looks – I had less harem-y pants in a look last week. 😉 Thanks for sharing!

    • It’s kind of amazing what a blazer and a pair of strappy sandals can do to such a casual piece so they can be biz appropriate!

  • Love this look! Haha I am always wearing my looser trousers like this to work – they’re as comfy as pyjamas!
