Edgy Officewear

Finding office-appropriate outfits, that you actually like,  for your plus-size bod can be a challenge.

If you’re like me, you want your clothing to feel and look fabulous, but also to stay within your office’s set dress code.

Profs II-62This sleeveless moto dress is new for Fall from Pennington’s.  I picked it up with one of my birthday coupons on a customer appreciation night, and saved BIG!!!

Profs II-63Loving the edgy-chic style of this dress!

Profs II-64 Faux-leather inserts, a full front zipper and front pockets. Pairing it with pumps and minimal jewellery helped me take it to the office.

Profs II-65 But wearing it with studded booties and a statement necklace, I could totally take this dress elsewhere in the evening.Profs II-66And by wearing something long-sleeved underneath, I could take this dress into Winter while giving it a totally different look.  Right?Profs II-67

I see this piece as making many appearances over the next few months my friends. 😉

Profs II-63What do you think of this look?  Where would you wear it? As office wear….night-out wear….both…and how?  Tell me your thoughts in the Comments section!

 

How I Got The Look:

Herringbone Jacket

OMG!!!  How terrific is this Herringbone Jacket …and I got it for $41! I know! I know! I said I’d be focused on refreshing my CURRENT closet and not buy too many new pieces.  But how could I leave this fab piece behind!?   Look at it!! How great it is!   I’m only human people! 🙂herringbone2

Typically being busty, I shy away from double-breasted coats …but the angled collar, length, faux pockets and pleat in the back (sorry I didn’t get a shot of that friends) just made me fall in love with how this jacket fit me.

herringbone JACKET

This lovely jacket has already helped produce a bunch of fab looks both over dresses and skirts and especially with pants.  I’ve only photographed one of the many Looks I’ve already incorporated this jacket into only having had it a short while.  Really helps boost the quality of a dress-downed weekend look, say over jeans and a sweater.  And totally helps rock a trip to the office or a Saturday night out in pink pumps!
