10 Outfits For Work Or Play

January 18, 2020


Erin Schrader

Watch out world, I’ve officially moved away from 7 days of sweatshirts to 7 days of decently put together outfits. I should rephrase – I’ve moved to 6 days of decently put together while I still have 1 day allowing me to live out my sweatshirt dreams. If you remember, I’m deeming 2020 the year of trying to step up my fashion game [although let’s be real, leggings are the real MVP] and try just a tad bit harder than I did last year. This weeks of outfits feature a lot of looks that can be translated for work and play [simply swap out the jeans with your fave pair of work pants — my recommendation: these] and you’re ready for 8-5. The better news about this weeks roundup outfits? So many of the pieces are marked down [yay new years sales!]

Before we get into all of the outfits, let’s get the logistics out of the way to make this process easier on you – for sizing reference, I am 5’4, 125 lbs on a good day, typically a 2 in tops/dresses and 26 in jeans/pants with a preferred inseam of 26-28 inches. Bra size is 30DDD [I get it from my momma]. Hopefully, this helps when determining what size you’d need. Also, feel free to follow along here for daily outfits [literally every outfit housed in ONE spot] and check out this Pinterest board where you can also get some ideas! Which reminds me, you can pin any of these looks below to save for future reference! Simply click on the links below and you will be taken directly to the retailer where you can shop! Alright, fellow “I like to get dressed” friends, let’s begin! ps. If you’re here, I’m assuming you like a) clothes b) good deals on clothes.
