The Girl in the Pink Scarf

- Fashion, Lifestyle, Outfits, Shopping

pink scarf, chambray top, black skirt

I’m still struggling with work outfits… which is really silly considering I can basically wear what I want. I think the issue is that I started off at a job where I was required to be wearing a suit every day, or pretty close. Then I went to a business casual environment, but still got pretty dressed up. Now, it is casual, but can really be whatever I want, but I still get confused. I have yet to wear heels, but have worn wedges a couple times, I would just feel silly being one of the only ones in heels. But then again, who cares? Right? Anyway, I swear I’m going somewhere with this.

Although this outfit isn’t necessarily anything special, I love it because I feel like for me it is a good mix of casual and just a little bit of dressy. I have never been a wear jeans every day type of person. I wore dresses and skirts in high school and college, so trying to wear jeans every day just isn’t for me. But put the denim on top, and add a swingy little black skirt on the bottom? Yes, totally me. Add a pink scarf with some tassels, and overall I feel like it adds just the right touch. So yesterday, I was the the girl in the pink scarf. I recently just watched Confessions of a Shopaholic, which is where this post title came from – also I’m so glad I don’t have to freeze my credit cards to keep myself from shopping (or do I)? Stay tuned to find out in my August budget post on Friday! In other news, these Karen Walker sunglasses are currently being borrowed from DITTO through their Endless Program – that means rent your favorite designer sunglasses for just $19 a month! You can sign up here to get your first rental month for free!

And FINALLY, it’s Emma! She hasn’t been in one of my posts in forever, so she tagged along (and had about 10 dogs walk by us while taking photos, she was very distracted and wanted to make friends)! And’s its National Dog Day, had no idea. Love the way things work out sometimes. I should re-title my post to National Dog Day or something? There are so many “national” days now they are hard to keep up with!

    I feel your pain. I also can wear whatever I want, which is great…but some days I swear having a less freedom in dressing would solve a lot of internal debate. Great outfit!

    Jennifer, thank you SO much for your comment! I'm glad you feel the same way, it is, in a way too much freedom. And it's still that saying in my head "Dress for success" – being too casual makes me feel weird in a work environment! I would love to hear if you have any go-to outfits that seem to work well for you?

    These are lovely photos! I think this sounds like the perfect mix for your current work environment. Mine is pretty casual. I love that I can be casual if I want but no one gives me strange looks if I want to dress up either. Love the doggie cameo!

    Love the way this work outfit came together and the pink scarf was a great choice! There are so many “National ______ days” that I would never have known about if not for Instagram!

    This is a super cute look! I love the mix of a little casual with the chambray and your pink scarf is perfect! I came from an office where I could wear pretty much whatever I wanted everyday, but I generally dressed up. Now I am in an office where I have to dress up everyday. While it suits my style, I miss having the option to be a little varied in my wardrobe choices.
