Happy Monday, y’all!
Since I only worked two days last week after my trip to Park City, I have a feeling this week is going to seem a little longer than normal for me.
I am planning on sharing a recap of my trip this week, but if there’s one thing I realized on this vacation, it’s that I love traveling not only for the adventure, but for the new perspective on my daily life. I came back from Utah refreshed and excited to get back into my routine, which to me indicates even though it’s not all sunshine and roses, it’s pretty darn good.
While vacation is fun, it’s such a limited part of our lives—most days are spent where we live full-time heading to work or school. The older I’m getting, the more I’m realizing how important it is to love where you live since that’s where you spend the majority of your time.
Now that I’m back on that workweek grind, I thought it’d be fun to kick off things with another what I (actually) wear to work, especially since it finally feels like spring has arrived in the Mid Atlantic.
Since it’s chilly before and after work, I love pairing a long sleeve shirt with a pencil skirt. Anything to avoid wearing a jacket, you know? I have a pretty high tolerance for cold, and my walk to and from the metro is sub five minutes, so this works well for me. If it’s super chilly, I’d definitely add a trench or cardigan.
I started getting into the pencil skirt game when I interned at Glamour, but as any pencil skirt wearer knows, it’s really important to find the right fit. Right now, I’m absolutely loving the J Crew Factory Basketweave Pencil Skirt. It’s a thicker cotton that holds its shape throughout the day, and it comes in petite length, which is perfect for me. (Hopefully they’ll introduce a tall line soon!)
If I’m wearing wedges or higher heels, I usually commute in my Jacks during the spring, but these J Crew Factory patent sandals are seriously the best shoes I own. They go with everything, and are so comfortable. I can wear them all day and still live to tell the tale. A rare feat!
I’d love to know what y’all are wearing to work this spring, and if there are any must-haves I should snag! Let me know in the comments below! x
