Fall Fashion: Wear to Work

Being an assistant principal in an elementary school requires clothes that are cute but comfortable. I can’t be too dressed up {super high heels wouldn’t fly} because there are days where I am chasing kids and on my feet all day, yet I still want to look professional. So I try to find a happy in-between for work. A lot of my work clothes can be transitioned over to dinner and date night too {post coming soon!} so I like to buy clothes that serve multiple functions. Here are a few week day styles that seem to work well for me.

You may recognize the vest from the last post. It works to throw over almost anything. And these booties are my favorite. They are super comfortable to wear all day and have just enough of a chunky heel to dress up any outfit.

The next outfit is definitely more casual and could easily be worn outside of work as well. I love this cardigan-super soft and you can’t go wrong with gray and white stripes. I found it at the Loft outlet {they don’t have an online store} but linked a similar one at the Loft.

The moto jacket below is great because it feels like a sweatshirt but looks like you are more dressed up. You can wear it open, zipped, or half-zipped and with work pants and booties, like below, or throw it on with my ankle pants from the “casual wear” post from last week and take your errand style up a notch.

Flat booties are great for a day on your feet. These are cute with jeans or work pants.

My last outfit could easily be worn for date night also. The top is is technically a dress but it felt a little short to me {I sized down because of it’s pretty flowy} so I paired it with leggings. Riding boots would be cute too!

Do you have any great wear-to-work styles? I’d love to see them!
