Excerpt from a firm-wide email…
A friend of mine at the Firm, call him Ebenezer, requested/suggested this PS:As a somewhat-related aside, please remember that, except for Fridays and special occasions like tomorrow, the period for permitted business casual attire ended Labor Day.
One year later…
Okay then, let’s start again. One year ago I was a boring law student. Today, as promised, I’m a boring corporate lawyer.
I refuse, however, to let the boringness infiltrate my wardrobe. Faux fur is appropriate in a business casual environment, no? (No, it isn’t. But I’m not stopping until someone awkwardly confronts me.)
Keep me honest, keep me fashionable, keep me fabulous.
Love this look. Longer dress, closed toe shoes of course. Damn business formal.
i love mixing black with navy blue.
Simple and elegant. Will definitely recreate this look.
Okay one last reblog from the fab Documenting the Ordinary. I adore this…it would be perfect for the summer months when I could wear business casual. Adding a navy schoolboy blazer and perhaps a crisper oxford shirt could bring it into business formal territory. But to be totally honest, I’m not entirely sure what is expected for business formal at this firm. If it is boring suits every day then I will die. DIE. (Okay not really. But I’ll be bummed.) I’m crossing my fingers that suit-like attire qualifies.
Another lovely possibility for the fall. I don’t think it would be difficult to make this business formal-appropriate. Perhaps take the camel coat here and replace it with a camel blazer. I’m also feeling a cropped black jacket, but I’m wondering if you need something more structured on top to compensate for the feminine skirt? Hmm.
The shoes are fabulous. And I don’t even like modest heels.
How fantastic is this outfit? Definitely what I’m envisioning for myself this fall. Only with a longer skirt (just above the knee seems to be appropriate but of course make sure that you aren’t exposed when you sit down) and closed toe shoes. Absolutely keeping the leopard clutch.
Lovely find from Simply Seductive, via I Love Wildfox.
