Workwear Blues | Thrift Style Thursday

March 26, 2015

It’s Thursday – woop, woop!  That means that the work week is almost over AND it’s Thrift Style Thursday!!  I am not complaining or anything, but is it just me or has it been a long week??

I don’t normally post many “workwear” outfits because my jobs don’t have much of a dress code; but, I was inspired by a recent thrift find.  So, for today’s “Winter Blues” theme – brought to us by Andrea of Little Did You Know – I am sharing a very blue workwear look!

I found this gorgeous Banana Republic blouse on sale at a local Salvation Army for only a few dollars (I don’t remember exactly), and I knew that while it wasn’t super exciting, it would make a great wardrobe staple.  Plus, the pretty shade of blue and the unique pattern were my inspiration for this week’s outfit – yay!

The knit blazer I probably should have waited to wear in a post, because it’s a gift from a fellow Thrift Style Thursday’er from our Thrift Style Thursday Swap (that we’ll be talking all about tomorrow), but I couldn’t wait!  I love this blazer – it fits like a dream, it’s soft, comfy and it was thrifted just for me!!  Okay, that’s all I’m saying, you’ll have to wait until tomorrow for the rest!  ;)

You know that pair of shoes that you don’t need, and you know you will only be able to wear so often, but they’re pretty and nice and you just have to have them anyway??  That was this pair of real Italian leather oxfords that feel like butter on my skin and make me feel runway chic.  Sigh.  I just had to, guys.

Do you have a “guilty pleasure” item in your closet, too?  What is it??  (C’mon, you can tell me!  ;))

Don’t forget to check out the rest of the Thrift Style Thursday girl gang to see how they’re battling the “Winter Blues” in style!




 

As always, thanks for reading!  :)

      Thank you!! I love wearing blue and actually used to wear a lot more, but blue and purple definitely tend to go well with my coloring! :)
      And my swap partner did do an excellent job, I can’t wait to share the rest!! ;)

    I also have a guilty pleasure pair of Italian loafers. They are like 1 size too small, so I only wear them when I know I won’t be walking a lot, but I lovelovelove them, so I totally understand you giving into your urges. I love this look by the way! The blazer over that shirt makes it very work appropriate and the little pop of brown from your shoes is great!

      Oh man, those Italian shoes are hard to pass up!! ;)
      Thank you!! I am amazed at how much I love this blazer, but it’s so comfy and surprisingly versatile! :)

    I love this whole outfit. I would definitely have to swap the jeans out for something a little dressier (hmm, a JCrew thrifted skirt perhaps? *wink wink*) to work with my job, but this totally suits you. Also – posing by the staircase was a great idea. I really like how these photos turned out! :)

      Thank you!! I am sure jeans would not work for most professional workplaces (Except casual Friday? Is that still a thing??), but considering I pretty much wear whatever I want within reason, this is a pretty spiffy work look for me! ;)
      Ooh also so glad you like the photos – the staircase was totally random, but it’s outside my work so I figured, why not?! :)

    The blouse is beautiful, but I love how the whole blue outfit really sets off the shoes. Those are fabulous! And something you found at Marshall’s can’t be too guilty a pleasure, can it?
