WorkWear Wednesday: Summer Blacks

Workwear Wednesday-Summer Blacks 2 (1)
Happy Workwear Wednesday! I am bringing it back, hopefully for good! It was a super popular thing last year, and I loved sharing my work outfits with you all! I would love some feedback this time around on outfits you would like to see: dresses, pants, dressy, casual…..
This skirt is a recent find ($20) and I loveee it. The side peplum detail is superrr fun and hides that little lower tummy area without having to wear spanx! I decided to go all black with this look, so I paired this skirt with a black top. I also added pops of blue to match this wall behind me. I then added a leopard flat for a way to mix up the outfit a little bit.
I found this mural driving recently and needed to find a way to grab some pictures in front of it. It’s right by the expressway entrance/exit, so taking photos here was interesting. This mural is called the ‘CrossCuts Mural’ and was done by Tony Passero. The mural stretches on for the whole underpass and is so vibrant and gorgeous! It’s called CrossCuts because he was trying to blend together the multitude of cultures that live in the neighborhood near the mural. You can check out the full story here!
Hope you have a lovely week! Be sure to send some tips to me! I would really love to know what would work for you in terms of workwear. I tend to not be very casual, but would be happy to throw some of that into the mix!

    Love this look for work. I’m always trying to find new ways to incorporate my personal style in my wardrobe just to spice things up. I think you should always slay no matter if you’re going to work or out with friends. You look amazing by the way!

    I love that you include a little snippet about the mural, that’s so cool, Denise. Love that you’re bringing back this series, I’ve missed it. I would love to see a ‘copy the look for less’ kind of post, not all of us are able to spend tons on outfits.

    A well-chosen outfit for work on Wednesday. Show business outfit, maybe black color is perfect for a business meeting but is the best choice!
