Style In The Workplace Work Wardrobe Essentials
A few weeks ago, I asked you guys over on Instagram Stories what were some of your common frustrations when it came to your personal style in the workplace. I received a ton of feedback and questions. This post is all about work basics whether you work from home, in the office or if you are constantly traveling from city to city for work.
Most of the questions that I received were related to not having anything to wear or wearing the same things over and over again. When this happens it’s usually because a few things. You’re shopping for items that aren’t functional for your lifestyle, you aren’t sure how to fully maximize your wardrobe, or your wardrobe is either lacking basic or statement pieces.

Work From Home Essentials
On most days working from home is a luxury! But my first year of working from home, I didn’t put much thought into my personal style. In fact, I noticed that when I didn’t dress up and wear my pajamas all day. I felt unproductive and found myself drinking excessive amounts of coffee because I was “tired”. But the reality was my appearance automatically signaled my brain that it was rest time. Eventually I got the memo and begin to put more thought into what I wear when I work from home.
I’m not saying get super dolled up and wear a blazer and skirt. You just have to find the items that makes you feel comfortable and productive.For example, if you love the feeling of leggings, simply find pants that offers the same amount of comfort. That way when it’s time for you to run errands, you don’t have to worry about not being presentable. Not saying that leggings aren’t presentable, because their are so many ways that you can style them!
