Corporate Vibes

Happy Wednesday everyone!

I’m gonna be honest…I don’t always dress appropriately for work. 
No, I don’t wear clubbing dresses or booty shorts….but sometimes, I don’t always dress up. When you’re constantly running around, packing trunks and anticipating long hours, it’s hard to find the drive to get up in the morning and look presentable. Lucky for me, I work in an office where it’s totally acceptable to wear the overly distressed boyfriend jeans and a simple white tee. 
But, I occasionaly (and I seriously mean occasionaly) get the urge to dress up a little bit for work and embrace the corporate vibes: classic navy pants paired with a pink striped button down. And since I try to steer clear of the strong 9 to 5 vibes, I added a statement necklace to make it a little more fun, a little more me, and a little more #SoTeenVogue. 

Outfit Details
Shirt: J.Crew (old, similar here, love this one here). Pants: J.Crew. Coat: Banana Republic. Shoes: Manolo Blahnik. Bag: Celine. Necklace: BaubleBar. Bracelets: Henri Bendel. Vince Camuto. Sunnies: Toms.

Thank you so much for reading L.A Style, N.Y Smile! I’m already looking forward to sleeping in this weekend and embracing the gorgeous weather heading our way!

  • I think comfort is key I am not a fan of high heels but sometimes on special events.. You look amazing


  • Every time you bust out those shoes for posts I let out a "oh those Manolos," sigh. Literally the most beautiful shoe. I totally wished I worked in a place where jeans and tees were ok one day and business the next. Ours is business casual and since I'm one of the first people customers, sales reps, and auditors deal with, I always feel the pressure. Which I guess is good for me. I can't ever slack in the morning. (;

  • Looking gorgeous as always! I swoon over those shoes every time and that coat is so gorgeous and classic! I need that necklace too! Such a perfect work outfit!

  • Okay, I need a closeup of those SHOES girl!! Are those the shoes Big proposes to Carrie with in the Sex and the City movie?! You look fab and I love your coat. XO

  • K. I need some of your coporate vibes to be sent my way, please! I slack so bad on dressing-up for work. When I first started, I was all about it, but now it's not great. You look gorgeous! And I mean the shoes…you can send them way with the vibes as well 🙂

    Clothes & Quotes

  • Thanks Candice! I totally agree! I'm almost always wearing my Vince slip on sneakers to work cause they are so comfortable, but still put together, but occasionally I wake up in a great mood and want to wear heels. I used to not be a fan of heels except for a special occasion either and then one day just woke up and fell in love haha! Hope you have a great Friday!

  • Oh Kiki! Haha I have that same sigh every time I look at them too. Seriously never gets old. It's funny cause sometimes I wish I worked in a more business environment so I was forced to dress up a little more…plus when I'm in distressed denim, I stick out like a sore thumb on my morning commute haha! But, on those days (pretty much every day of every week) where I'm just too tired or not in the mood, it's great to be in such a creative environment where anything goes. Pros and cons to both environments haha!

  • Thank you so much Shannon!! With your style especially, I would love to see you in this necklace!

  • Thank you so much!

  • Haha! Your style is actually perfect!! You are the one that inspires me to rock the boyfriend jeans, slip on and graphic tees…and of course a bold lip. I've seriously never met anyone who's style I can relate so much with. But, you're so right, I love the occasional dress up and ultra feminine vibes. Thank you so much Ivete and again I'm so happy to see you back at blogging!

  • Haha Christine!! Thank you!! Yes they are the shoes! I used to admire them in the movie and then ever since I started working in fashion, all I wanted were heels and one day just really took a step back and appreciated how perfect these are. They're seriously even more beautiful in person.

  • Hahah I'll send some your way, if you send some weather and that amazing effortless style you have my way! I totally agree though, when I first started working I would plan my outfits the night before and loved getting dressed up and now it's a miracle if I don't show up to work in boyfriend jeans and a tee. Thanks again girl and hope you have a great Friday!
