Wednesday Work Chic – My Favorite Outfit

Work Chic 2If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you got to see a preview of today’s Wednesday Work Chic outfit!  It’s one of my own and probably my absolute favorite outfit at the moment.  I’ve worn it in the late summer and now on into fall because the colors just work.  Navy, tan/light tan, an oak colored bag, and some sparkly accessories!  How can you go wrong with that!

The semi-precious stones are fabulous against the navy shirt!  I’ve also included a picture (from another day) of the earrings that match the necklace.  I LOVE this collection!

So why is this my f12011133_889223164526765_3364834996994644332_nfavorite outfit?  I think the simplicity of it makes it great for any workplace.  It’s not overly dressy, and it’s not casual, but it is still stylish and comfortable.  Working in a high school and having to walk around three campuses all day, you need some comfort!  But I also think it is important to look chic and business like.  To me the colors of this outfit are classic, chic, stylish, and perfect for every day whether you are at work or out shopping with the girls!  Stay tuned for more Wednesday Work Chic and some other great posts soon!
