Workwear: Plaid + Leather


Happy Monday! After a relaxing weekend enjoying San Francisco's Indian summer, I feel ready to conquer my work week! Speaking of work, do you all dress up in suits or keep it corporate casual? I work in fashion & lifestyle PR, so the office "dress code" is pretty non-existent as long as we look put together and current. This can mean wearing a leather midi skirt or on a casual Friday going for boyfriend jeans and a sharp blazer. 

Like I said in a past blog postplaid shirts are a wardrobe staple that can be worked a bunch of different ways. I hesitated initially to spend the money on this Equipment plaid blouse, but I am so glad I did! Not only does it feel and fit great ( I mean it is silk), but I get compliments every time I wear it, which is a lot! For work and dates I've been adding a statement necklace with it to give it a dressier feel while running errands I throw it on with skinny jeans and cutout booties for an easy outfit.
