Wearing my uniform could become a drag, and doesn't really motivate me to get out of bed for an 8 hour shift. But!... Showing up and SHOWING OUT in some colorful trousers, patterned/print tops and platform heels definitely would!
I found myself mixing and matching clothes I've had forever with brand new pieces to create fashionable but work appropriate looks to wear on Tuesdays and Thursday. This day was a Tuesday.
Here's what I wore...
Black Striped Long Sleeve Wrap Blouse
#vintagepiece! A friend of my mom's gave me this top when I was in my preteens. At the time I hated this blouse, not to mention it was too big for me. I never wore it, but luckily for me I didn't throw it away because 10 years later and its the perfect blouse for this outfit.

#trendalert! According to one of my fashion sources, Blue is the on trend color of 2013. I love a Cobalt, Pacific, or Mediterranean Blue! What's your favorite shade of Blue?

I accessorized this look with classy gold pieces appropriate for the work place:
Gold Michael Kors Watch
Gold Clasp Bracelet
Gold Collar Necklace
Gold Dimpled Studs
This look is about mixing solids with prints or patterns. Which can be a fun play on clothes without getting too fashion forward in the work place. You can also try this same affect with a solid colored cardigan and polka dot skirt, or a pinstripe pants with a solid blazer.
I hope this look inspires your next outfit! Remember, "always dress to express yourself."
