workwear wednesday – leather & plaid

Hi friends, this week, Justine and I have another fun Pinterest-inspired outfit. I’ve been having a really good time perusing Pinterest for fashion inspiration again after a multi-year hiatus. And now that fall is finally upon here in NC, I’ve been trying to get the most wear out of my leather jacket as possible and really enjoying the leather + plaid combination.

What do you think?

florals + khakis {pinspiration workwear wednesday}

This week, Justine and I feature more Workwear Wednesday pinspiration (pinterest-inpired) outfits– and actually, we’ll be continuing this theme for the rest of the month.

I’ve been semi-obsessed with these J. Crew khaki pants that I thrifted recently. They’re slightly darker khaki, which I like; plus, they have an easy fit which makes them super comfortable. Instead of wearing a white button-down shirt like my inspired by pin, I wore a white floral blouse and white shoes to add a bit more of my personality.

pinspiration for workwear wednesday

This week, Justine and are are taking inspiration from Pinterest for our Workwear Wednesday outfit.

I really like the idea of using “pinspiration” — but I wasn’t sure where to start. When I saw a pin featuring a lovely woman wearing a chambray shirt and a stunning, colorful, full maxi skirt, I knew I wanted to try it.

Here’s my inspiration:

Okay, so not quite the same but my dark blue midi skirt was the closest I had. Now I really need a brightly colored fit and flare skirt! What do you think?
