#OOTD {I do wear real clothes}

I love when other bloggers post pictures of what they’re wearing for a “regular” day of work. Since I am by no means a “fashionista”, I can always get tips and ideas from what I see in these posts. One of my favorite fashion blogs to read (and Instagram/Facebook accounts to follow) is J’s Every Day Fashion because she is not only fashionable, but fashionable on a budget. I don’t think I’m daring enough to pull off some of the looks she posts, but I love seeing them for ideas on what’s appropriate colors/patterns/trends to combine.

Even though I’m not as creative with my outfits (I tend to err on the side of classic, rather than trendy), I thought it would be fun if I shared a week’s worth of work outfits to show you that I do wear something besides workout clothes- although if you follow me on Instagram, you may think differently 😉

Tuesday (I work from home on Mondays, so my outfit is generally jeans and a t-shirt)


  • Shirt- Banana Republic Outlet (last year)- I think it was on sale for $30 or $40
  • Skirt- Banana Republic Outlet (so long ago)- Definitely on sale, but can’t remember how much
  • Necklace- Banana Republic Outlet (last year)- on sale for $13
  • Shoes- Nine West, from TJ Maxx- $25



  • Top: Banana Republic- this year, on sale for $32
  • Pants: Loft- last fall, on sale for $20
  • Shoes- Adrienne Vendetti on sale at Marshall’s for $15
  • Watch- Movado (a number of years ago)



  • Dress: Banana Republic Outlet- $12 (super steal last spring)
  • Watch: Michael Kors
  • Shoes: Loft ($40)



Our office is casual dress all the time now, but I still stick to jeans usually just once a week.

  • Jeans- Forever 21 $11
  • Top- Express- a friend gave it to me
  • Necklace- PJ’s Unique Peek Boutique– $15
  • Shoes- Adrienne Vendetti from a few years ago

So, there you go! A peek inside a week’s worth of work outfits.

Questions for you: Where do you get most of your “work” clothes? Are you into fashion and following trends or do you stick to the classics? Any deals I need to check out?

    These are great! I am just starting a new job where I’m transitioning from ‘scrub’s to ‘REAL’ clothes, aka not clothes that feel like PJ’s. I’ve hit up Banana Republic and Loft in a BIG way but am always looking for motivation to try different patterns and colours! Love the orange on you ! Thanks for sharing!

    Nice post! =) Love all the combinations especially those worn on Wednesday and Thursday! So easy to mix and match styles with out spending a ton of money. I ❤ TJ Maxx!

    WHY do you look gorgeous in everything?!?! I swear you could go to work in a garbage bag and look beautiful! I love your outfits, and I also love the way you do your hair, considering I’m in the “difficult hair management” boat as well!

    Hi Nick, Of course, I think you look beautiful in everything you wear, but I’m partial to “classic” clothing–what a surprise!! It was fun to see some of your work wardrobe. Mom
