striped shirt, cobalt blue pencil skirt

My typical office style look: a well fitted pencil skirt paired with a polished button down shirt. It’s a super easy outfit to put together, it is comfortable, elegant and you can even go straight to happy hour without having to change. I have always loved the no fuss looks. I firmly believe that you don’t have to spend over an hour getting ready to look polished. It’s the matter of having a lean closet with well fitted, versatile pieces. I prefer to keep colors to neutral, however on Fridays I like to sneak in “a little pop”. This cobalt blue pencil skirt is very comfortable and the side zipper adds a nice accent without taking all the attention away. I wear this very same skirt for a Sunday brunch date with hubby paired with a relaxed sweater.

You may have noticed that I don’t wear big, bold jewelry much. I am not very fond of them plus those big dangling earrings make my ears hurt after just an hour. Delicate stud earrings and pearl necklaces speak my language when it comes to accessories.

What is your favorite kind of jewelry for on and off duty?

    I own a cobalt pencil skirt also. It is such a classic piece. You look great Bogi.

    Happy first day of Spring!

    That cobalt blue just makes the whole outfit pop! I agree as well … I find myself buying pieces that can be mixed and/or go with anything. It makes coming up with outfits so much easier!

    Yes, pencil skirts are always a good idea! This one enhances your figure so well too. I could not agree more with your philosophy on simple no fuss looks, and a lean closet. I’m loving your style, and I’m glad I came by to visit.
    Hope you are having a happy Friday so far.
