jacket-Mikkat Market(similar from Everlane here), blouse/boots-Gap(similar here and here), culottes-Everlane(similar here), necklace/ring-Le Tote
This outfit is the epitome of "alternative" business casual. The pieces when taken on their own are perfectly acceptable for the workplace, but when paired up this beachy-esque blouse, oversized culottes, chelsea boots, and military jacket create office wear with an edge! And long-time readers know that I love me some edge. As we're now into September, but still experiencing August weather it can be difficult to outfit. I'm just dying to bust out some of my recent fall purchases (seen here), but I'm not quite ready for them with daily highs still in the 70s and 80s. So, instead I'm doing some transitional/hybrid outfitting with easy tops and bottoms, "shaped" by a blazer or jacket.
FYI, next week starts another year-long shopping hiatus, so be sure to check back often to see my progress of keeping the outfits fresh!
