I have a secret place to take pictures now after work…in the alley next to my building! Jess and I discovered it when I took her pictures and she took my pictures for last week’s How To Accessorize | Flower Child. If anyone in my office looked out of their windows they could see me with my tripod and remote control for my camera just snapping away. It’s a bit odd and fun at the same time taking my own pics and I have a portable tripod that collapses and fits in my bag so I really have no excuse to not take pics.
This outfit is my casual work environment type of outfit at its best. It’s comfortable, but still put together. Our office has been a bit chilly, so I wanted to wear a cardigan and I picked up this open drape cardigan at Marshalls a few weeks ago for $14 (I love a bargain). This cardigan will probably be worn all year long and as it gets cooler I’ll just throw on layering tees underneath. I love the grey and oatmeal/off-white stripes and just the cool factor to it. I figure, it’s a trend right now to wear this kind of open cardigan, so I’m embracing it. I mean we all know I love a good cardigan. I decided to replicate the draping in the cardigan with my tank tops to add more interest. I actually think this cardigan would look great with just a white tee and dark wash jeans. I’m sure you’ll get a post with that exact outfit sometime in the future.
The folks at LeSportsac sent me the Passerby Handbag in Fresca that I talked about for travel a while back. I love this bag for a couple of reasons: 1. The print is crazy fun and goes with a lot of things, surprisingly. 2. It is great for the days that I go to the gym because it holds everything I want to carry to work plus my gym clothes in a little packing cube, water bottle and sneakers with room for more. I swear it’s like Mary Poppin’s carpet bag that you could pull a lamp out of, this baby holds it all. Prime example, that day I had my gym clothes, lunch bag, iPad, camera and collapsible tripod in the bag. It really does hold everything.
So what do you like to wear in a business casual environment?
