What Work Looks Like

November 30, 2010

(Jacket, Blouse and Trousers: Thrifted Vintage, Pumps – Cynthia Rowley via TJMaxx)

The Thanksgiving holiday is over and that means it is back to work.

My work takes place in many locations – I could be at home in my office, at a client’s home and closet, on a photoshoot or out shopping. Wherever I am.. I always dress up – dressing up gives me inspiration and motivation to do my absolute best no matter what the task.

So, today dressing up meant wearing my new tweed blazer with black lapels.. and after the cropped trousers and bowtie blouse were in place.. I slipped on the yummiest Cynthia Rowley Pumps (picked up at TJMaxx.. I guess I am a Maxxinista now!).

Now.. there is work to be done.

    I am absolutely LOVING this outfit. What a score on the pumps too!! Nothing wrong with being a Maxxinista, especially during the holiday season!!

    I love this post! And so great seeing all your Stylits stacked neatly 🙂 I am loving my Stylit and so glad that I got one. It helps me to be more organized and purposeful when shopping and planning for trips. It’s truly a great tool!

    I love this as a work look. The tweed blazer with the suede pumps just scream Fall. I also love that the cropped pants make the look fun and modern.

    omg i am in LOVE with this outfit. you totally hit the nail on the head with this one, beth!
    the fit of the blazer is great, too — do you have any blazer alteration tips? i have a vintage one that’s just a little tooooo boxy.

    your blog is pure beauty.
    LOVE your sense of style.

    Almost daily, I’m in a situation where my contemporaries wear sweats without care, but dressing up really does make you feel better. On campus, I’ve become known as the girl who always wears high heels, even to people I’ve never met, but heels are just another way for me to feel confident enough to command a classroom when necessary. I wish more people would take a page out of your professionally dressed book.

    p.s. I love the art on your wall! Glassless frames with 3D objects in them is a wonderful idea.

      Thanks for your sweet comments Chelsea.. I love that you are known on campus as the “heels girl”!

  16. November 30, 2010 2:25 pm

    that is a fabulous outfit, I love the heels!!!

  17. November 30, 2010 4:07 pm

    Great outfit! I love those shoes good find!

    I will be the first to admit, I am not one who wears vintage clothing…I love it on others, feel like I am trying to be someone else when I do it…….But I really adore how you make your vintage finds look so FRESH and RELEVANT. Been stopping in for a few weeks now and find each outfit post to be more beautiful than the next.

      Thanks Carly.. glad you are stopping by. Yeah, I love vintage.. but I always like to make it new and fresh.. very current with what’s on the runway.

    I absolutely adore this look! That bowtie blouse totally makes the look in my opinion. Great TJMaxx find too.

    ahhh, i saw those pumps at TJ Maxx while visiting my parents back in Ohio! I wanted them (badly) but alas, they didn’t have my size. they look wonderful on you and go perfectly with your outfit.

    I saw these shoes in Marshall’s. I almost bought them but realized I had too many black heels. Now I regret that decision and of course they are gone:(

    I love the prim and proper look of this ensemble.
