 Sometimes Mondays are the hardest for me to crawl out of bed and reach for the office side of my closet.  Especially in spring and summer, when I have probably spent most of the weekend in comfy maxi and sundresses.  Blending a little of my weekend wardrobe into my Monday office look helps me ease into a new work week. When I purchased this striped t-shirt, one of the ways I was most excited to style it was for work.  I mean who doesn’t want to find a way to wear a comfy t-shirt to work.  The best way for me to cross my weekend tee to office appropriate is with a colorful pencil skirt.  If you wanted to go a step further, you could also toss a black blazer over this look to go even more professional.   I also think the stripes on the top help take it up a notch to make it look a little more office ready.  Although, I think a v-neck tee in a solid color like black, white or even mustard yellow would look pretty fabulous with this skirt too.

Over the next few weeks, I am going to be doing a little trial run of listing a few past looks that also incorporated a few of the pieces from today’s outfit.  I love not only styling an outfit, but finding ways to restyle those pieces to maximize the number of looks out of everything I own.  I think the more outfits I create out of each piece the better value that piece is for me.  I hope you find some style inspiration seeing a few posts of an item that maybe you are thinking about adding to your wardrobe, or a piece you already own and are looking for a few new ways to style.  Thanks Ya’ll and Happy Monday!

    I agree with Madaline, restyling is great to show because that’s really how most of our closets are! I am also finding it hard to do anything on Monday when the weekend has been so great, finding an outfit easily would definitely be for the best.

  11. Madaline says:

    I LOVE love restyling. Sometimes, I think bloggers focus to much on new new new, when really the creativity comes in when you remix things you wore a million times and make it look new! LOVE the color of this skirt.

  12. You look so put together and chic! Love the color of your skirt!
