The "Zara Outfit" of the Day
Look at me, all businesslike. This feels weird to me, blogging about my work outfits. If this is something you like, I might be willing to make this kind of thing a bit more regular ;) So, yes, by day I have a big-girl job where I have to wear business attire. It's a very interesting dilemma every morning: how to be work-appropriate (i.e. skirts not too short, pants not too tight, not too much cleavage) while still maintaining my personal style. I like to think that I usually strike the right balance!
Anyway, here's today's work outfit. I call this my "Zara Outfit", not only because it's all from Zara, but I also bought everything together as an outfit, which is not something I do very often. It worked like a fashion miracle, so I need to do this more - I have too many orphan tops, blazers, skirts, etc. in my closet!
I realize that this isn't the most "trendy" or "fashion-girl" outfit, but I really think there's something to be said for a classic, chic outfit like this. I am in the hunt for a pair of slightly more interesting work heels - so maybe picture this with a little more shoe pizzazz, and then you'll have my ultimate work outfit!
Button down: Zara
White cami: Zara

Also, I know this isn't the ideal outfit photo background... I was also doing an OOTD video and my neighbour decided it would be a great time to mow the lawn, as well as a giant truck deciding it would reverse all the way down my street. Noise city. Unfortunately it did not occur to me at the time that photos do not have sound. Oh well :)
