I’ve always worked in fields that didn’t have strict dress codes. Of course, my preferred uniform would probably comprise a form-fitting sheath dress. But, on occasion, I just feel like slumming it. On those days, I rely on casual, comfy, but chic pieces to pull a look together.
An oversized, red stripe sweater is paired with denim trousers for a slouchy chic look. I purchased the sweater during the recent Friends and Family sale (40% off) at the Gap. Python print wedges and purple agate earrings complete the casual work outfit.

I love your outfit!! Question what lip color are you wearing? I was at the mall all weekend trying to find colors for my lips and left without finding a color i just think color looks weird on my I guess that's mostly because i NEVER wear color on my lips!! lol
@Sandie: Thanks! I'm wearing Mac 'Rebel' lipstick paired with Mac 'currant' lip pencil. I used to be intimidated by lip color, but something happened over the last couple of years 🙂 I now love a bold lip! My favorite shades are purples and fuchsias. Good luck finding a color that you just love!
LOL! I wore this same outfit last monday sans the earrings. Dare I say that I think this is a fab look!!!
Casual yet still chic, love it!:)
Your hair is really growing!
A really nice casual outfit.
I also work in a casual environment, and to be honest, sometimes I just feel lazy and don't want to make the effort lol. On those days, I turn to my trouser or flared denim, heels, and a cute top. That sweater looks really comfy and cute. I especially like that you paired it with the denim trousers to keep it office chic!
@Anon: How cool! This color combination and look is so classic, right?
@ShoeBell(i)e: Thanks! Good old red, white, and blue 🙂
@Manecoarse: Yes. I grew out my cut a bit. My plan is to keep the tapered shape, but with more length. It looks longer here because my hair is stretched–>twist-out on blown out hair.
@Kinga: Thanks for stopping in!
@Janell: Thanks! I can understand feeling lazy on some days. In academia, there isn't a whole lot of motivation to get dressed up either. Sometimes I'm motivated by the question, "is this outfit good enough to show on the blog?" Lol!
I love this with the shoes, you always pair things so well that most people wouldn't try! Love it!
This made me remember the python ballet flats that I've never worn that I can wear before it gets too cold! Not that GA gets super cold anyway, lol!
I am LOVING this outfit!! Purple and red look amazing together. Thanks for the love!
@LocalCeleb: Thanks! I'm so inspired by all the print mixing this season.
@Caramelnaps25: For sure! Those python shoes must see the light of the day! They sounds fabulous!
@Kendra Scott: Thanks!! Discovering your line has expanded my jewelry-wearing possibilities. I'm thinking about graduating to the necklaces next…
