Working a full-time job and blogging is a complete juggling act. I’ll be 100% honest, sometimes it’s exhausting and overwhelming. I need and crave balance in my life so trying to find that in the midst of everything is hard sometimes.
If you are just starting your career or have been working for a while…this post is for you. Every working girl needs a few staple pieces to complete her work look. These are pieces that transcend through time and trends to keep you polished in your everyday life. I am a firm believer in the idea that dressing well for work helps promote your success. People notice professionalism-trust me. These 5 pieces are so essential for every working girl to achieve a polished look. I included this in my “work week” series because it took my years to realize how important staple pieces are when you work full time and on a budget!
You know when you buy something you just really love and know that you will wear in several areas of your life…. yeah, this is that top. Black has always been a chic color so I found it perfect for work. I couldn’t wait to wear this top and to be honest I wore it to work before I shot this look (usually I shoot a look before I wear it into my everyday life because I usually spill something -facepalm).
I love comfort. I know if I buy something cute but uncomfortable the chances of me wearing it are slim to none. My friend Alexa was wearing this super cute sweater at my recent Kendra Scott event. I gave her a hug and immediately felt how soft this sweater feels. Two days later, it was in my shopping cart-no questions asked.
