On the second Monday of every month a group of style bloggers and I pick a theme, style an outfit based on that theme, and then do a link up together where you can join too! This month's theme is "Work Wear". Since a lot of teachers and other women are returning to work after a summer of fun in the sun, we thought we would share some ideas of new outfits you can wear to work.
When I thought about what to wear for the "Back to Work" challenge, I thought about what would I choose to wear if I worked in a corporate office setting. I know some of the ladies in the challenge chose blazers because for one, they are really "in" right now, and they definitely scream "corporate", however, I have never liked blazers. I never liked the way they looked on me. I always felt they looked too masculine on my body type. I also hated the way they felt...very stiff and uncomfortable. And it was then I realized how I wanted to approach this challenge: COMFORT. Anyone who has read my fashion posts for very long knows I won't wear something that is not comfortable. If I have to sit at a desk for eight hours a day, I want to be comfortable! And that is how this outfit came into being.
And finally, I chose a pair of pointy toe flats for footwear. Flats are always more comfortable than heels, and the pointy toe and little bows add a dressier look than a rounded toe would.
And now, lets see what the other ladies are wearing and be sure to link up your outfits with us at the end of the post too!

My work wardrobe is business professional. I love easy sophisticated looks. An easy back to work look. I love a light plaid high waisted midi skirt for a sophisticated business look. I paired it with a classic satin ivory blouse and my favorite cap toe sling-backs. Jewelry added is my white Abalone KS choker.
