WorkWear Style: Stripes + Culottes

If you’ve been reading The Fashion Hour for a while now, you probably know I work full-time as a Sales Executive. The majority of what I wear to work doesn’t make it on the blog, however I thought it’d be nice to share a work outfit with you every now and then…

Stripes and CulottesWhite Blazer and Striped Top

In today’s look I am wearing the most amazing culottes pants from Express, an old Forever 21 blazer, and a Zara tank I picked up for under $10! You know I cannot get enough culottes so this pair from Express was a must. The sailor button detail on the front is flattering and such a pretty touch! My heels are an old DSW clearance find but any pump could work with this outfit!

I love this outfit because it is appropriate for work and I would still feel perfectly comfortable going to an event or meeting up with friends wearing it. The statement necklace I’m wearing in this post was gifted to me by Park Lane Jewelry. I was recently featured in their fall catalog which is SUPER exciting. I think this is the first time I saw my picture in print which is SO weird but pretty cool! You can take a look at it here.

    Have you written a post about what it’s like to work full time and blog? I’ve been dealing with that conundrum for the past year or so. Finishing my MA this year and been toying with the idea of continuing to do this on the side. Would love to read what your thoughts on this are, since I feel like there’s not that many bloggers that also work full time.

      I haven’t! I’ve definitely thought about it though! It is such a challenge to keep up and be consistent while working a demanding full-time job so maybe one of these days I can put together a post on it!
