#OOTD 6

Spoiler alert: I’m not very good at taking outfit post photos, but that doesn’t mean I’m not wearing outfits I like here and there. Over the last few weeks I’ve been taking some little mirror shots to share a quick #OOTD post. Maybe next time I’ll take less photos in the bathroom!

Payless heels (similar)  |  Kate Spade watch  |  scarf (gift from Bahar)

PS-It’s probably pretty easy to see from these last two photos that I have a signature style at work: pants, a loose and light top, cardigan, scarf/necklace. It’s the easiest and most comfortable thing I can put together each morning that will let me walk to other offices in 90+ degree heat but still come back to sit at my desk in 65 degree AC. If you have any other more creative outfit suggestions, I’m all ears!

My friend Kat called this the “cool girl outfit” and that’s a look I’d like to nail more often.

I love that this style is casual and comfortable enough for a weekend, but when you tuck the shirt in properly, it’s put-together enough to wear to the office. It’s lose fitting and easy to wear and it felt totally “cool”. Now if only I could look like this a bit more often…

WorkWear: 1 Dress 3 Ways

My office can be considered traditional and professional. It’s definitely dressier than any place I’ve worked in the past and sometimes it can be difficult to be creative when putting together outfits. So my newest goal is to find updated ways to wear current items in my closet…. although that didn’t stop me from buying a new suit dress recently….oops?

To make myself feel better, I started putting together some different outfit ideas for my dress. Because it’s simple and black I figured it would be easy, but it’s surprisingly difficult to think of new ways to wear something traditionally thought of under a blazer. So I started simple with option number one, updated the dress to fit my style with option number two, and then completely changed the look by adding a great shell last. What other ways do you wear your classics?

Doing Good: Figs

1

Figs is a company that every medical professional needs to know about. They sell scrubs (tops, bottoms and caps) and tee-shirts. Their scrubs are available in different shapes, sizes and colors and they even offer various pocket options.

While all this is fun and all, I really like the fact that they are committed to a one-for-one philosophy. This means that for every set of scrubs sold, Figs gives a set to a healthcare provider in need. Here in America we tend to think of healthcare providers as part of that 1%, but what about those working in impoverished areas? All medical professionals are not paid an equal amount. I think it’s great that a company is finding a way to provide clean scrubs to all who may need it.

Every so often I like to highlight a company that’s doing something good.  Companies showcased in the Doing Good series are NOT sponsors of WLB. They just share a mission I want to spread.
