For me, this coral midi skirt with sailor-inspired gold buttons and ruffled navy top makes for the perfect professional-yet-stylish ensemble for a summer day at the office. If you’re looking for more super stylish, affordable workwear options, just spend a minute or two perusing Marks & Spencer’s new arrivals. If you’re not frothing at the mouth in about 30 seconds, I’d suggest checking for a pulse. I’m sorry, but howwww is this skirt only $56??
You know from this previous post that my love affair with Marks & Spencer runs DEEP. Like the pieces I’m wearing today, there are so many beautiful work-appropriate styles that don’t necessarily scream “workwear,” which, if you’ve followed this blog for any length of time, is kind of the goal. Just look at how cool this midi skirt is… or THIS DRESS! As you well know, I’ve always been convinced that working women don’t have to abandon their personal style when headed to the office. Life is just too dang short to spend Monday through Friday (over 70% of your life… eek!) in a soul-sucking corporate uniform. Like my bright skirt today and ruffle blouse, there are loads of pieces that are outside of the stereotypical workwear box that still look fiercely professional and super stylish to boot.
Side note: I’m OBSESSED with these metallic gold ruffle sandals, but if your office is more formal, swap in a classic pump!
