And so another work week begins…

I probably wear my most girlboss outfits on Mondays.  Monday sets the tone for how the whole work week will go.  I always feel like if my outfit says “Let’s do this,” then I will feel more ready to tackle the day ahead.  Peplum tops are a favorite of mine for their versatility.  I often pair them with pencil skirts for the office for that conquer the day look.  On weekends, I will toss this top on with skinny jeans, heels and a cute clutch (HOW CUTE IS THIS ONE) for a casual dressy look for dinner or drinks.  I like the high neck of this one because it works really well with bib statement necklaces like this one from Gorjana.  I also pair this top with my Baublebar bib necklace for a more dramatic look when I wear with jeans.  I have had this one for a few years, but I linked some similar tops.  This is definitely a top style to have in multiple colors.  I think I might need a black one soon!!  Happy Monday Ya’ll! May your coffee be strong and your Monday be short!
