A Month of Styled Work Looks...

Happy First Monday of the New Year...

I have been trying to get back in the swing of blogging regularly and decided I would start doing a Month Look Book of Work/Office Looks. I commute to work from Indianapolis to the Chicago area Tuesday - Thursday every week and I have to plan out three days of work outfits. Normally I just  wait until Monday and pull some outfits together which causes me so much anxiety, being that I am SUPER particular about what I wear.  So to begin the new year, I've set some goals to 1. Shop my closet and not shop so often and 2. Actually wear ALL the clothes I already have.  My boo doesn't believe I can go without shopping for the next couple months until we go on vacation in March. I have made up mind and I will only be shopping my closet until March 11th !!!

When I pack for the work week, it helps to chose outfits similar in color scheme so I can wear similar shoes and accessories and not have to try to stuff over 3 pair of shoes in my small bag.  Here are some looks I put together for this month....
