summer work outfit ideas

Friday, May 27, 2016

This post originally started out as a roundup of the best Memorial Day sales. However, as I was writing it, I realized the only store I was really impressed with their sale was Banana Republic. They have 40% off the whole store and it's the only place I am ordering from this weekend! Rather than just do a list of the sale, I thought I would do some outfit inspiration using pieces from the sale. Not everything included in the guides is from the Banana Republic Memorial Day Sale, but at least a key piece from each outfit is.

I am in the process of revamping my wardrobe. I feel like my style has evolved quite a bit over the years and it is need of a refresh. I am currently in the process of a major closet clean out where I am getting rid of anything that I don't love. I read somewhere to get rid of anything that does not bring you joy, so that's the mindset I'm trying to apply as I clean out my wardrobe. It's a great tip for cleaning out your closet because so often we hold on to pieces just because we spent a lot of money on them or because we might wear them someday. As I clean out my closet now, I'm really thinking about if it makes me happy when I wear it.

The first area of my wardrobe that needs some new life is my work wardrobe. We are able to dress jeans casual where I work, so I could honestly wear each one of these any day of the week. However, I hope that you are able to take some inspiration no matter your dress code at work!

  40. Love your wear-to-work options... And I'm with you, I'm in the process of cleaning out the closet and tossing/donating anything I don't love. Style evolves, and so should your closet! :)

  42. I would say outfit #3 is my favorite because it's so cute & girly, but outfit #5 is definitely more up my street and makes me feel the most comfortable. That's why I'd want to pick #3 so I can go outside my comfort zone ;) xx adaatude.com
