When I see pieces like a tartan, studded, poofy shouldered flannel in the clearance section, I just can’t imagine why anyone would pass it up. I also marvel at my luck while huntressing.
Wearing studded pieces at work was a definite goal of mine, though many of the studded pieces I’ve seen aren’t really conservative work appropriate. Enter: tartan, studded, poofy shouldered flannel. Oh yes, readers, I was able to check this goal off my list. …and yes, I sure do have fashion goals! Fashion metaphor for the week: dream big and set big goals. It is possible to be super studded and shiny at work and still manage to look completely appropriate. Dreams do come true.
Top: Marshall’s ($12 marked down from approx $50)
Pants: Banana Republic ($90, the full price pants that everyone comments on!)
Shoes: Vince Camuto via Marshall’s ($25 marked down from $100)
Scarf: Gap ($15 marked down from approx $25)
1) Per usual, I was searching through all of the clearance racks at Marshall’s and found the gold kitten heels in the wrong size section. They seemed a bit holiday to me due to the gold, but no one else seemed to think that! Thus, I’ll be wearing them year round but especially November-January! Some shoes are definitely seasonal (sandals, for those of us who live in climates that get quite cold). However, many shoes can be transitioned through the seasons. Who can forget the gorgeous open heels and socks look from Burberry? If you’re trying to transition your heels or peep toe shoes, check out Pinterest for great inspiration.
2) It was not easy to find something studded that was work appropriate, but I definitely managed to find something after looking around for a few weeks. If you like a trend, but are unsure whether it works for a conservative work space, think about incorporating it in a small way. The studs on this shirt are a small detail, and the rest of the shirt is definitely conservative. The key to incorporating “edgy” trends at work is moderation!
Back at home now, readers! I will try and get my San Diego hat store post up by tomorrow. Thank you so much for stopping by!
