A work/cocktail outfit. I'm trying to add more "fun" to my work wardrobe, which seems to prove more of a challenge for me than most people. Seriously, how do you all do it?

thrifted necklace (similar here and here)
blouse and cardigan c/o Romwe
Hermès and Amrita Singh bangles
watch c/o BCBGMAXAZRIA
vintage Ferragamo belt (love this beautiful one, too)
H&M skirt
Theyskens Theory pumps
ASOS clutch

Shop the look!

This is totally "fun!" The bracelets and the fun necklace and the floral on your top are all very fun. And the pink! Pink is always fun. :) You're doing very well at dressing classy and fun.

My friend is dealing with the same problem. She sees some of my work looks during HH or photos and is like, 'You wore that to work'? And I look down at myself expecting to be naked but nope!, I'm still fully clothed. To her, she tries to look as understated as possible. And she sees me looking bright or with a loud print and she just can't get with it. lolol.

Anywho, you definitely look 'fun'! Great blouse.

The secret is to not worry about whether your boss and coworkers will think you're a freak or a show-off. Just do your thing! (But seriously...you are doing your thing right now. It's working.)

The only thing I like with work is the dressing up part. Lunch and end of shift can be counted too.
